Item: Yellowstone Falling Film
Location: Miami, FL
We are in the market to sell our Yellowstone Falling Film. It is a great machine that can recover solvents at a rate of 70-80Gal/Hr. This machine has the capability to recover ethanol, isopropyl, hexane, methanol, really just about anything that you’d want to recover.
We’ve used it daily since November of 2019 and it has been quite the powerhouse for us. However, we are switching over from extraction to sole distillation and no longer require the falling film.
We have spoken to Yellowstone Extraction Co. and they are willing to refurbish the machine and renew the warranty if a buyer is interested. You will essentially be buying a new machine with little to no lead time at a discounted rate, there’s really no losing here.
No chiller required
Turnkey – set it and forget it
Customer Service is unmatched in this industry
It’s fun watching the solvent condense
Radiator must be kept outside
Requires adequate ventilation, but really all falling films do.
Below are a few pictures of the machine:
@Rowan DM’d you.
For all other inquirers, DM for price. I probably should have added that into the listing.
I remember when @downtheterphole installed this unit. We had a good time at the social club one night.
“No chiller required” is it air cooled? How low temperature can it hit? Is there vacuum involved or is it all Ambient? Can it remove pentane if it’s 30c outside?
I have questions.
can boil and condense anything with bp above ambient.
no vacuum involved, but can be.
edit: non glass condenser units can run more solvents and at more pressure.
bumping post for visibility
glass condenser prv is 15psi for vessel compliance.
the 150mm column should be good to 2bar wp.
hot gaskets may slip out at above 60psi - it’s your call on how much FUN you want in your lab
what’s the tag on this thing?
It confidential. You’ll need to fill out an NDA to get a price.
are you the one selling it?
Nope. just based on how many have asked and still no price posted here
Anything over 100k for this thing would be out f the question imo, The yellowstone is only great because of its footprint, otherwise its just another falling film
Don’t forget the no chiller part, the safety of the system relative to other ffs, highest-quality fittings/instrumentation, and the fact that you get to hang w rusty for a few days…
Machine is still available. DM for price.
Is this unit still available?
