High Output 5000psi: The ForceTM
Optimized for Supercritical Extractions
Prices start at $395,000
These systems can process 140-200 pounds of dried botanical material per day. They’re optimized for supercritical extraction, which means high pressure/high temperature extractions. They can also process subcritically (low pressure/low temperature), which preserves terpenes and means no post-processing!

Features and Benefits
- Fast and energy-efficient with Dual-Phase Pumping System — The combined gas and liquid pumping platform allows regenerative heat exchange, significantly reducing overall energy consumption while doubling the speed of extraction.
- No Clogging — With Apeks Valveless Expansion Technology (Patent No. 9132363), there are no regulating valves used in separation process to cause clogging of product.
- Greater Yields — Simple fractional extraction and cold separation processes preserve volatile oils for higher- quality, higher-quantity yields.
- Data-Tracking Capability — Track and verify temperature and pressure variations.
- Faster start-ups/shut-downs with CO2 storage tank. Requires fewer CO2 cylinders.
- Maximum Results — Extraction media is contained in extraction vessel with integral filters. Filters also act as a liquid CO2 dispersant to avoid channeling in the product. Reversible flow through the extractor ensures all material is extracted.
- Waste Heat Elimination — Motor driven system completely eliminates the waste heat that is produced by compressed air drive systems. This reduces facility air conditioning loads and eliminates the need for ductwork to manage the waste heat.
- New Compression-Style Orifice — Improves the flow of CO2 (speeds up processing). New device also eliminates the need for Teflon tape and pipe fittings which can cause premature shutdowns.
- 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
