CO2 extraction in an Apeks machine.

List your SOP from front to back to get from biomass to isolate.

Have you actually extracted anything yet?

Yeah been running it for 4 months, just have not ever seen anyone’s operation or had any help just what i pick up here and there. I am tolling Stormy Daniels at this moment for someone else. They get back winterized oil which they take to distillate

I am not versed in co2. If you list your entire SOP you will probably get some more opinions.

So this SOP you are talking about, what should it include, entail or cover exactly? If you don’t mind sharing.

Anything pertinent to your extraction process. Extraction, winterization, solvent recovery, distillation, isolation.

Clearly i dont know what I’m talking about. Frustration level 100 lol. I can do that with the sop it’ll take me a minute to type it and submit it for scrutiny, which i gladly welcome!

I dont have spd capabilities. Thought matbe i could do that with a centrifuge

No sir.


Sop means Standard operating procedure.

It means what steps you take in your operation. So he’s asking about what procedure you use for getting from point a to point b, ie from biomass to end product.

Thanks bro! Was curious what to include not what the acronym stood for.


My bad, didn’t know you didn’t know.

I am so new to this brother i should not be allowed in here lol

So no spd no centrifuge?

Not sure what you’re asking… Post your SOP.

I guess what I’m asking is if i can put winterized oil in a centrifuge and separate cbd from everything elas?

Once again, no sir. Not that I am aware of.

Oh well that sucks

The primary use of a centrifuge in obtaining your CBD would be instead of your Apeks machine. You do not currently have a use for one.**

One reason folks go that route is that they find they need to winterize their CO2 crude using ethanol, which they then get cold, before filtering.

If one just extracts with cold ethanol to begin with, they can dispense with the CO2 machine. Which often looks like a win.

In order to help you optimize your process, we need to know what it is. Exactly.

**there are other tricks one can perform with a fuge, such as the filtration that happens upon winterization. Or removing mother liquor from your isolate. You’re not there yet.


So i am freaking out on the inside bro! Can I
Process crude in a centrifuge?

I’ll jump on typing it out and then publish here for critique
