Closed Column Extractor Starter Kit
Best Value Vacs has bundled our recommended vacuum chamber, vacuum pump, and column extraction system to offer customers the most cost-effective solution possible.
The Closed Column Extractor Kit is designed to pair well with the other products included in the extraction kit. The items in the kit cover every process from start to finish on your essential oil extraction (excluding butane) and is easy for beginner operators to use.
The first step of the oil extraction process is to use the closed column extractor to extract the essential oils from the plant material into a pyrex dish. The user then transfers the oil with residual solvent into the two-gallon vacuum chamber; the digital heating pad is attached to the bottom of the chamber after setting the temperature. The VE115 3CFM vacuum pump exerts a high vacuum to purge and degass residual solvent or gases trapped inside the oil. (Note: This process may take up to 5 days.) Once the purging process is complete, the oil extraction can be used immediately or transformed into a variety of applications.

- Compound Gauge

*Note: Column capacity may vary depending on the density of packed material and packing density. Capacity is calculated using the industry standard of 4.2g/in3. This is the upper limit for column capacity. Low density, uncut, and/or lightly packed material can reduce capacity by 50%. For best results, we recommend to tightly pack coarse ground material.
