This system is a continuous extractor set up to process 550lbs/hour at 90%+ efficiency will full control over all operational parameters (temperature, residence time, flow rates) and can process upwards of 1000lbs/hour if desired
Solvent Recovery: Rising Film Evaporation rated for 600gal/hour and Wiped Film Evaporation rated for .5% solvent remaining through initial pass
Molecular Sieve: Series of (4) columns for etoh dehydration removing residual moisture from your ethanol and cleaning (regenerating) it for reuse.
Yield: 10%-15% product yield (crude) which is dictated by processor.
Example: 500lbs of biomass will result in 50-75lbs of crude per run
The Rotax Continuous Extraction unit is designed for a high volume of continuous Counter Current Solvent Extraction. Used in a variety of agricultural BioMass Oil Extraction the system is designed for Industrial process plants that are attempting to achieve a high level of throughput with limited downtime or human interaction. The Rotax system is designed for Fully automated operation with self feeding input material and discharge of spent material with 99.9% solvent recovery through its patented recovery conveyor. All systems can be customized for the specifications; throughput and operational parameters of the end users needs. System are also designed for Cryogenic or heated operation.
