Taking a shot at selling my ethanol extraction lab

2 - 100k btu rianni heaters

That sounds low for that size fuge, which looks like 30-35lb load, and should be capable of cycle times in the 30min range (120lb in 2hrs).

was solvent recovery your bottle neck?

Ethanol recovery was definitely our bottle neck. This system was recovering 30 gallons an hour. We could probably double that by increasing vacuum flow. We usually only had one person working crude production while another distilled and another filled carts or made gummies.
It has kept 3 people gainfully employed for the past 3 years. The only reason I’m selling is because I got a very very nice offer for me and all of my team to move into a licensed facility.


don’t suppose you’d be willing to sell piecemeal? if so i’m curious about the specs on the 38kw chiller. thanks
