The basic CO2 extractor is the core of our expandable product line. It is a quality engineered entry level CO2 extractorritical fluid extractor (SFE). It offers many of the features typical of commercial SFE equipment, but at a more affordable price. With a one ounce capacity and manual valve, the basic CO2 extractor is perfect for home extraction, batch testing, and research and development.
With 90 minute runtimes, the CO2 extractor allows you to extract essential oils on your own terms. Independent pressure and temperature controls let you dial in the ideal extraction for your material. The extractor is designed to be maintained and serviced by the user, removing the tricky mechanical learning curve of the larger systems. It’s simple to use, safe, convenient, and easy to clean. Since it only requires one standard 110V outlet, the CO2 extractor can be used most anywhere. 220V models are also available for our international customers (contact us for more info). If your needs exceed the one ounce capacity, you can expand your CO2 extractor.
The Expansion Kit for the CO2 extractor is a two product kit which includes both the size expanding Rack, as well as the AutoPilot which automates a large portion of the pressure regulation. The Rack increases per-run capacity from one ounce to five ounces. This solution allows existing users to upgrade their CO2 extractor without replacing the entire system. This modular expansion is a great solution for the small batch or boutique production of essential oils. The AutoPilot ensures that pressure will remain constant without the need for manual operation, freeing up the operator’s attention during the extended runtimes of the larger capacity system. The AutoPilot is also available for the basic CO2 extractor without the Rack if you are using the system for batch testing. The Rack is offered as a special order product, and all Rack sales are final. For this reason, we recommend the purchase of a basic CO2 extractor first, so that you can have a couple of successful runs and be sure it will meet your needs. All of OCO Labs’ upgrades will retrofit to the base model CO2 extractor, so you will never need to buy a new system if you choose to upgrade in the future.
