Cannabis Processing & Testing
Scientific Equipment Source
The cannabis industry has seen rapid growth in North America since it was legalized. As the demand for legal cannabis is increasing, conducting quality cannabis lab testing with industry standard analytical test equipment to meet regulations has become essential. Cannabis testing is conducted for – testing of pesticides, mycotoxin, including potency, heavy metal, or residual solvents. SES offers HPLC, MS, GC, ICP-MS, and other equipment to conduct these tests.

In the cannabis manufacturing process, biomass handling equipment is required to convert the cannabis leaves and flowers to meet the specifications for the downstream cannabis extraction process. The correct biomass processing equipment is critical to achieving quality output and ensuring efficient operations.
The leaves are first weighed on industrial grade balances for feeding into the specialized grinders. The ground biomass is then fed into specialized vortex mixers that produce vigorous mixing by creating a ‘tornado’ effect. A sample output from the vortex is analyzed using the NIR analyzer. The NIR (Near Infrared Analyzer) analyzer measures the concentrations, viscosity and other properties of the treated cannabis biomass before it is sent to the next stage of extraction. An NIR analyzer can provide relevant measurements in seconds in the lab, on-line and can be automated. SES offers a range of Industrial balances, grinders, vortex and NIR analyzers to choose from.
The extract is a concentrated form of Cannabis that can be prepared using a solvent extraction method. In the cannabis industry, the extraction process collects active ingredients like Terpene compounds and Cannabinoids from the cannabis plant matter. This creates a more potent and refined solid, liquid form of Cannabis or even a semi-solid form of Cannabis.
The exact method of extraction used is the main factor determining the final product quality. Cannabis extracts may include Cannabis in liquid forms like cannabis oil or solid form like shatter. These extracts are also used to prepare cannabis edibles, topicals, beverages, or directly consumed as-is.

Extracting bulks of oil and compounds from cannabis plants is a specialized process requiring specific equipment. The bulk extracts of Cannabis include live resin extract, shatter extract, craft concentrates, crude oil extract, and other isolate extracts.
The cannabis bulk extraction equipment is used by both small-scale and large-scale processors. SES offers to sell cannabis extraction equipment that are solvent-based – environmentally friendly, and includes winterization using a rotary evaporator to remove residual solvents. We have a wide range of equipment that can help you with any concentrate ranging from shatter to e-liquids, which can be used for directly making confectionery products for sale in a cannabis dispensary.
Cannabis bulk extraction process will generate large amounts of cannabis concentrates. Distillates are made from cannabis extracts that have been winterized, decarboxylated, and then distilled. The distillation process will make the cannabis extract pure and transparent.
This distillation process contains several steps, and during a couple of these the extract is run through objects where heat is required to reduce the viscosity and evaporate unwanted impurities. This forms a pure cannabis distillate. The process of fractional short path distillation can separate each compound of THC.
SES provides the most durable cannabis distillation equipment, which can be professionally installed with proper instrument setup to ensure a safe controlled environment – as the setup and materials require utmost precision and accuracy. SES offers a complete range of equipment if you are looking to set up cannabis extraction services for bulk pass-through distillation machines for testing, R&D, and production facilities.
The process of filtration during the preparation of a sample is a very important step for facilitating cannabis testing. The filtration process in a cannabis testing service is one step towards potency testing and testing for cannabinoids, pesticides, terpene, mould and yeast, and bacterial contamination. The wide variety of sample preparation equipment offered by SES can streamline and simplify cannabis analysis – to enable quick release to market by providing reliable QC data.
