High Output 2000psi: The Duplex TM
Optimized for Subcritical Extractions

Prices start at $315,000

The DuplexTM can process 126-180 pounds of dried botanical material per day. The system is optimized for subcritical extraction, which means low pressure/low temperature extractions. Processing subcritically means you preserve terpenes and don’t need much post-processing. The Duplex can also process supercritically (high pressure/high temperature), so you get the best of both worlds with this system!

Introduced at 2017 MJ Biz Conference in Las Vegas, The DuplexTM system is a subcritical high production system that will change the way everyone talks about extraction efficiency! The system is more efficient than liquid-pumping systems and is built to be future-proof. Preserve those valuable terpenes and extract your oil in a fraction of the time, saving time and money. The system can also process supercritically, so you will get the best of both worlds with this new system!

  • Flow rate of 6.1kg per minute
  • Process 126-180 pounds per day
  • Continuous batch operation means no down time between runs
  • Four separators and two separator cups support continuous batch
  • The system only uses 39.8hp, including the chillers
  • More energy efficient than liquid-pumping systems
  • The control panels are future-proof and built to be part of a connected enterprise
  • Interfaces with a SQL database
  • Integrated chiller control completes the automation package
  • You can collect much more data from your system with the new control panel
  • Powered by Rockwell Automation
  • Our Industrial Control panels are UL Listed!
  • HMI (Human Machine Interface) is now written to ANSI/ISA 101 standards, meaning the screen and graphics are easier to read
  • The system is cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Processes) friendly

Utilizing subcritical and supercritical CO2, these systems offer high-capacity, high-production operations with fast, efficient extractions of botanical oils without thermal degradation. The Duplex™ is equipped with the patent-pending Dual-Phase Pumping System which combines a liquid pump allowing for high CO2 flows at higher pressures with the Diaphragm Compressor Technology gas pump for energy-efficiency and cold separation.

These highly versatile systems provide a wide range of processing options and large-scale production capabilities – up to 180 pounds of material per day!

 

 

Effective July 1, 2017: our systems now come with a 3-year warranty! The only exclusion is consumables.

Features and Benefits

High Performance

FAST AND EFFICIENT

  • Offers a measured, actual, and extraordinary flow rate of 6.1kg per min!
  • Continuous batch operation means no down time between runs
  • Four separators and two separator cups support continuous batch
  • The system only uses 39.8hp total, including the chillers!
  • More energy efficient than liquid-pumping systems

TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED CONTROL PANELS

  • The control panels are future-proof and built to be part of a connected enterprise
  • Interfaces with a SQL database
  • Integrated chiller control completes the automation package
  • Collect much more data from your system than ever before!
  • Powered by Rockwell Automation
  • All our control panels are UL Listed
  • HMI (Human Machine Interface) is now written to ANSI/ISA 101 standards, making the screen easier to read, reducing glare and offering intuitive graphics
  • Next level state-of-the-art automation!

CURRENT GOOD MANUFACTURING PROCESS (cGMP) FRIENDLY

  • Components are mounted on the frame to make cleaning easy (gauges stay with the vessels)
  • System can be cleaned while in use, without fear of contamination
  • Easier to clean components
  • Extractor, separator, and mechanical components can be separated to prevent cross contamination

User Friendly

  • Simple to Operate — No complicated control systems or computer interfaces. Open frame design and visual indication of valve positions make it easy to assess flow paths and system configurations.
  • Lights-Out Automation — Automated controls (ensure consistent results) and internet messaging (email/text notification of system condition changes). Requires little training and supervision.
  • Easy to Understand — Open-frame design and visual indication of valve positions allow for easy assessment of flow paths and system configuration. No mysterious boxes with inlet/outlet connections on the outside.
  • Production Friendly — Quick opening closures and system timer help users efficiently run their extractions automatically.
  • Low Maintenance – Our new re-circulation technology has fewer moving parts for greater reliability and lower maintenance costs (as much as 80%).
  • Easy to Clean — All stainless steel construction. Vessels have polished interiors and quick opening/closing mechanisms. All tubing can be removed and re-assembled for thorough cleaning. Separators/collection vessels use FDA sanitary style fittings and connections.
  • Environmentally Friendly – Allows for 95% CO2 gas recovery, saving operational costs.

Safe & Long-Term Reliability

  • All vessels are designed and manufactured in accordance with ASME specifications and pressure ratings.
  • Redundant safety features protect the system from accidental over pressurization.
  • Tubing connections are made with proven compression fitting technology – the same fittings are used on aircraft and off-shore oil platforms.
  • Non-isolable pressure gauges are on each pressure containing vessel for visual verification of depressurization prior to opening.
  • Our Industrial Control panels are UL Listed, meeting the nationally recognized UL Standards for Safety
