Botanical Oil Extraction Using a Reciprocating Compressor/Vapor Recovery Pump
As a leading manufacturer of industrial pump and gas compression solutions for the LPG, petrochemical, chemical, and gas processing industries, Corken specializes in liquefied gas transfer and vapor recovery.
One of Corken’s more recent vapor recovery applications involves botanical 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 botanical oil extraction to separate the desired components on a large scale.
More recently, cannabis is a growing opportunity for botanical 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.
