Jack Naito shares his thoughts on the market advantages of extracting with hydrocarbon.
Cut Labor CostsAutomated controls eliminate weeks or months of apprenticeship training required for manually controlled hydrocarbon systems.
Eliminate Operator ErrorPre-programmed recipe-monitoring system checks pressures and temperatures hundreds of times per second to remove risk of operator error.
Increase CapacityProcess 18 pounds of dried plant material or 25 pounds of fresh-frozen material per run. Single operator can process 400 pounds of biomass in a single day.
Improve Run Time50-minute average run time with a 10-minute soak. Run-to-run changeover times of two minutes.
