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.
Regulatory Compliance is Critical.
Given the various indoor manufacturing environments involved in plant oil extraction, it is more critical than ever to ensure the equipment used has been fully UL Certified for Indoor Use. The Corken E91 compressor is the only fully UL Certified compressor system for the plant oil extraction industry. Additionally, Corken is certified to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), European Union ATEX Directive, European Union Machinery Directive, ISO 9001 Standard on Quality Management Systems, and ISO 14001 Standard on Environmental Management Systems.
