Reflect Scientific has released the Cryometrix L-80 liquid chiller, a new product for the cannabis extraction market.
"One of the preferred methods of extracting CBD from the hemp plant material is using cold ethanol," the team with the company explains. "Using other cooling systems in the market takes several hours to days to cool quantities of ethanol to the desired temperature (-45C or below) for extraction. The L-80 liquid chiller is capable of cooling 120 gallons of ethanol to -45C in just 45 minutes. The reduction in extraction processing time is considerable. The resulting CBD extract has less chlorophyll, fats and waxes than a room temperature ethanol extraction making a purer extract."
Kim Boyce, CEO of Reflect Scientific, remarked, “We realized we could utilize our extensive expertise in liquid nitrogen cooling to solve a serious problem in cannabis processing. The cannabis market is booming and Reflect is participating in that market with the only product of its kind.”
The L-80 liquid chiller uses a patent-pending liquid nitrogen cooling technology. "It is a similar technology to what is used in the Cryometrix B-90 blast freezer that is being used with great success in the pharmaceutical industry," they further explain. "The L-80 is designed to safely use standard tanks of liquid nitrogen and can be used where an explosion-proof system is required. No special installation is required. Power is supplied by 110 VAC."
