The 1lb Skylight closed loop hydrocarbon extraction system performs botanical extraction within a sealed, vacuumed system. What sets the skylight apart from the standard 1lb is the kettle top featuring a 3" sight glass to view inside the collection vessel.
This is great for beginners on a larger scale, the viewport helps you easily see your oil fall and gives you a great view of your recovery process. Utilizing a top-fill input, solvent washes thru the material column, collecting oils as it passes over the material. The top-fill closed loop extractor is the safest way to do hydrocarbon extraction. Solvent washes through the material column and collects oils as it passes over the material, and the oil-bearing solvent is collected in the collection base.
Once collected, the solvent in this passive unit is distilled and recovered using temperature manipulation, leaving oils in the collection base. This is a passive unit that utilizes pressure differences created by manipulating temperature to move solvent.
- Explorer: Our standard, most economical setup, perfect for the entry level extractor on a budget. Comes with a welded bottom base and standard LP tank. This model has minimal features to keep cost low, while providing the necessary equipment to get the job done.
- Professional: This model features upgrades to help produce a higher quality extract. Solvent is input into the material column with a showerhead endcap, ensuring the full material column is saturated with solvent. The Professional comes with a sleeved spool, allowing users to utilize dry ice to freeze the material column. This will help lock in fats and waxes to the material. An inline ball valve is used to allow solvent to be suspended in the material column, as well as closing the collection base off during recovery. Upon completion of the run, extract removal is made simple by adding a removable bottom to the collection base.
- Elite: The Elite series is the premium version of the Professional. It features all American made instrumentation valves by SSP, an AVCO ultra-low temperature inline ball valve, jacketed collection base, and all high-pressure clamps. The jacketed collection gives precision during recovery, allowing a heated fluid to be circulated around the base. This method keeps temperature both accurate and consistent. The elite series adds a level of dependability needed for those seeking to produce the highest quality extracts. *NOTE* This model requires a heater circulator or chiller
