The only fully UL Certified Plant Oil Extraction Compressor System
Corken has been the leading manufacturer of industrial pump and gas compression solutions for the LPG, petrochemical, chemical, and gas processing industries since 1924.
One of Corken’s most innovative vapor recovery compressor is the E91 triple-packed compressor for plant oil extraction.
Plant compounds/substances have provided nutritional and medicinal benefits since the beginning of time. As scientists learned more about the healing properties of various plant materials, they began using plant oil extraction to separate the desired components on a large scale. More recently, CBD is a growing opportunity for plant oil extraction. Desirable compounds such as cannabidiol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and terpenes are separated from the rest of the plant using hydrocarbon extraction. Other forms of extraction include ethanol and carbon dioxide (CO2); however, hydrocarbon is a more widely used since it’s more efficient and cost effective.
