Hemp/Industrial Farming with Apeks Supercritical
Did you know that you can easily extract CBD from hemp, using an Apeks Supercritical system? Our layouts allow for flexible extraction, including fractionation, maintaining the ability to do strain specific runs, on a large platform. Introducing… The Fleet™!
How does The Fleet™ work?
Our systems use a chiller that is installed outside. This means you won’t need an expensive air conditioning unit because all the heat generated can simply diffuse into the open air! Inside the building, you have temperature control units that control each system. Pipes fed through the wall mean you can start with a single system and then expand as needed! Daisy chaining systems means you can process large amounts, with one chiller.
One chiller to rule them all!
A single chiller is designed for outdoor use (similar to an A/C unit) and means lower maintenance costs. An external chiller also helps with Good Manufacturing Processes, which is important when it comes to licensing.
The Apeks Advantage
As with all our systems, you can bank on getting the highest quality, with the latest innovations, like cold separation, diaphragm compressor technology and a three-year warranty! Separate, smaller systems means you can go offline on one system, without stopping production. It allows for the flexibility to do small strain-specific runs, harvesting terpenes along the way!
Speaking of Terpenes
Terpenes have never been more popular and our systems allow for terpene extraction! Ethanol extractors can’t do this, so precious terpenes are lost.
It’s all about Scale
The Fleet looks to the future and allow you to scale up. You can purchase a single system, and have your facility set up to allow for future growth. When you’re ready, simply add to the chain and expand your business intelligently. Also, you don’t need to expand in the same place! If you have a facility with several rooms, as long as the pipes are installed around the building, through all the rooms, you can set up each system in its own room. Talk about flexibility!
How much can I process?
We’re happy you asked! You can process up to 540 pounds per day. Our flow rate is 18.6kg/minute, which is phenomenal, even if we say so ourselves!
How much will it cost?
That depends on how you purchase. You could buy all components up front and save thousands. Pricing starts at $545,000 so contact your sales engineer to find out more.
Hemp processing machines for sale
We do occasionally have systems in stock, either new or refurbished. Keep an eye on our website for hemp processing machines for sale – stock doesn’t stay in stock for long! But if we don’t have systems in stock, we can build them on site in our custom-built 17,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Johnstown, OH.
What’s the lead time?
Another good question! We can manufacture 12x20L (the three extraction systems in the illustration above) in 12 weeks.
What if I have a Duplex™ – can I convert to this configuration?
Yes! Talk to your sales engineer to find out more, but we can convert your existing Duplex™ so that you are perfectly positioned to expand.

You will need a plumber as well as an electrician for the installation. This is because of the external to internal insulated copper piping needed.
