SOLON, Ohio, Jan. 16, 2020 — PRESS RELEASE — CBG Biotech, a manufacturer of solvent removal and recycling systems, has introduced the new CannaTrue EPD Cold Ethanol Extraction System for high-purity extraction of cannabis and hemp oil.
The CannaTrue EPD System is composed of three modules, Extraction, Purification and Distillation, and is designed to process and purify essential oils and capture desired cannabinoids from cannabis and hemp. The EPD System extracts biomass (including flower, stem and processed material) then purifies and distills to yield a crude full spectrum distillate using high-purity ethanol. The system then distills the ethanol, enabling it to be recovered for future extractions, separating the ethanol from the concentrates.
Using the EPD System, cannabis and hemp labs can achieve stronger yield while using safer ethanol with 80-90% recovery. The system operates in a closed loop, offers real-time and remote monitoring, cycle tunability, and can process multiple batches of biomass per day.
Eric Lloyd, CBG’s production lead explains, “The EPD System learns from every wash how to be more efficient by adapting to the user’s environment and process settings. Each of the three modules are interconnected thereby, providing higher throughput and shorter processing times.”
The CannaTrue EPD System is fully automated and features all-metal construction with dual-wall 304 stainless steel processing tanks.
