Eden Labs, a pioneer in CO2 extraction, has introduced its newest system, giving cannabis processors the ability to significantly ramp up their production.
Eden’s first Hi-Flo model was already one of the highest yielding extractors on the market, capable of producing 30 to 40 grams an hour. The company’s new Hi-Flo FX2 can yield 130 to 180 grams an hour, more than four times faster than previous models and each machine has been engineered to run 24 hours a day. Eden Labs calls it a “quantum leap forward in output capabilities.”
The FX2 is capable of collecting fractions while the system is running, and recent revisions allow automatic, manual and fractioning systems without compromising its history of award-winning oil quality.
The FX2 technology will produce whole plant extract or extract fractions with temperatures, pressures and run times set by the operator. The fractions can be collected while the system is running, eliminating downtime and improving operational efficiency.
By improving the separators and condensers, and maximizing the pumping mechanism system, the FX2 can run from 500 milliliters up to 6,000 liters. Although few — if any — farms are capable of processing 6,000 liters at a time, these large-scale machines can be seen as Eden Labs’ way of saying, “There’s no project too large.”
Capacity depends on the density of the plant material being processed, and results vary based on quality of the botanicals, the growing process and other factors.
Each machine has a monitor that provides a digital readout of the performance, operating parameters and system alarms. Collected data can be stored and shared for further research and development, industrial output evaluation and data analysis.
