We are a technology company and a manufacturing company. We put R&D and innovation very high on our priority list in order to bring new capabilities and enhancements to our equipment for the benefit of our customers. Tech sheets are a culmination of R&D data, customer feedback and our vision for the industries we serve.
Your processing solution
We don’t just provide equipment, we provide solutions designed for cost-effective, efficient, and versatile high quality extraction. From start-up operations to established ones looking to expand volumes, our systems are engineered for efficiency using a unified platform technology for seamless transitioning.
Learn more about our patented Valveless Expansion technology, which prevents clogging.
This technology allows our extraction systems to utilize cold separation with an energy-efficient gas pump.
CO2 is a safer, cleaner, purer, and faster way to extract oil, using subcritical and supercritical parameters.
All Apeks systems are fully automated. With the exception of The Bambino®, all come standard with Internet connectivity (email and text message alerts). This ensures consistent results and requires less training for those operating the systems. Our equipment utilizes the industrial-proven Allen Bradley Programmable Logic Control (PLC) with a simple touchscreen user-interface. The electronic controls are solely dedicated to the safety and operation of our systems including automatic monitoring of pressures.
Competitive systems that use a desktop computer with complicated software can be prone to typical computer issues and malfunctions, like operating system failures, viruses, malware, as well as accidental exposure to environmental conditions, such as dirt and liquids.
The smaller (1500) bench-top allowed us to get started extracting cannabis oil with CO2 at a price we could afford. And the fact that we could trade it in to go towards purchasing a larger system gave us the flexibility to expand production as demand for our products has grown. We’re using both supercritical and subcritical CO2 of the larger 2000psi system to make a variety of oil induced products for patients. We test the oils in our labs so it is really helpful to refer to the settings which are automatically recorded.

This chart shows the throughput for each of our systems, subcritically and supercritically. The new Duplex® is able to process just as much subcritically as supercritically!
The Apeks design allows us to consistently extract pure, high-quality essential oils for our patients. The craftsmanship of the equipment is at the top of its class. The automation system and straight-forward maintenance procedures make operation and training a breeze. We are definitely Apeks CO2 proud and looking forward to the future with them!
