We are receiving VERY good feedback from our current Iron Fist (extraction column loader / unloader) clients. Our clients are typically putting around 20%-100% more material into each column, processing with solvent (typically hydrocarbon), then unloading with the push of a button.
Because our units are capable of producing a controllable amount of force, up to 12,000 Lbs, the material is pressed into the column uniformly and tightly which assists in preventing solvent channeling. Channeling typically occurs when material is packed loosely and/or unevenly as the solvent finds pockets and takes the path of least resistance. We have solutions for anyone running 3" to 12" diameter columns and up to 72" in length, free standing and/or rack mounted.
From the feedback we’ve received so far, and our own R&D, we have not seen any reduction in percent yields. Any increase in solvent flow time, due to the additional biomass, is dependent on many factors which vary from client to client and can often be mitigated. Overall, the benefits in time savings and production drastically outweigh any increase in solvent flow times.
We are helping individuals and companies stay competitive by increasing production and lab safety, while reducing labor including those operating in C1D1 spaces. Individuals tasked with packing and unpacking columns can still do so but because the time requirement is reduced, they can now be more productive in other parts of the process.
We understand this method is a new concept and welcome any questions, testimonials, etc. We understand our claims are far fetched which is why our approach is to offer free on-site demos. We feel it’s one of those too good to be true concepts you really have to see to believe.
We are a company with 5 years of BHO/PHO extraction experience. The owner, Clancy, holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering with experience in several other industries who’s true passion is in solving problems in the cannabis space. He started as a grower in 1996 and the rest is history. We machine, fabricate, and assemble in-house at our facility in Hillsboro, OR.
Thank you for your time, we are very honored to be a part of this crew. We take pride in offering accurate information and innovative solutions wherever we see room for improvement.
