ROTAX CONTINUOUS EXTRACTION SYSTEM

Deutsche-process-iconlogo-with-pipe-background-1.png

EFFICIENCY / YIELDS

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

DESOLVENTIZING DRYING SCREW

Dual-purpose mechanical screw removes biomass from system while recovering solvent from spent material.


Screw equipped with steam jackets to evaporate remaining solvent and to dry the biomass to create a clean solvent-free byproduct


Solvent vapors are collected through dedicated vacuum condenser and the condensed solvent returns to the system for reuse.


BIOMASS IS DISCHARGED FROM THE DECANTER CENTRIFUGE INTO THE DRYING SCREW


LESS THAN 1% SOLVENT REMAINING IN BIOMASS
