High output Apeks Duplex® System – optimized for low pressure/low temperature subcritical extractions
A winterization class in progress at our Johnstown, Ohio facilities.
This video shows the grinding process:
Apeks systems process either under subcritical parameters or supercritical parameters. Subcritical runs (low pressure/low temperature) extract flavonoids and terpenes, while supercritical (high pressure/high temperature) runs pull everything out of the plant including waxes and lipids. Many Apeks customers do a short terpene, subcritical run first, then finish the subcritical run before doing a supercritical run to get the most out of the plant matter as possible.
The lighter, terpene-rich oil on the left from a subcritical extraction, the heavier supercritical extraction on the right.
Watch the video to see a demonstration on the winterization process.
This is our introductory system, and processes 10-14lbs of dried botanical material per day.
As companies grow, they’ll move up to The Transformer. There are five different configurations and can process 25-31lbs per day.
At this point you’re looking at high production since this system has a very high flow rate (6.1kg/min) and can process 126-180lbs per day!
This system is the largest and strongest of our systems and can process 140-200lbs per day.
This is not a system, but a platform that allows you to daisy chain up to three Duplex or Force systems, giving you the capacity of 600lbs per day.
During supercritical runs, the system will extract additional unwanted materials like fats, waxes, and lipids, which requires the oil undergo post-processing after extraction.
Watch how easy it is to start a system.
