The 5 lb Apollo closed loop is a great introductory unit for medium scale production. The 5 lb closed loop hydrocarbon extraction system performs botanical extraction within a sealed, vacuumed system. Utilizing a top-fill input, solvent washes through the material column, collecting oils as it passes over the material. Oil bearing solvent is collected in the collection base under the material column. Once collected, solvent is distilled and recovered, leaving the oils in the collection base. The 5 lb Apollo has a 2 part material column, allowing the unit be used as a 2 or 5 lb unit. This is a passive unit that utilizes pressure differences created by manipulating temperature to move solvent.
