These helpful substances have to be removed from the plants using a highly technical and controlled process, which involves the use of botanical extraction chillers. Though the extraction process is relatively simple, for it to be successful, it has to be performed in a specially controlled environment at the proper temperature and pressure.

Chemicals and fragrances are stored in the molecular structure of plants. The botanical extraction chiller process breaks down the molecules and separates the desired ones from the plant’s other materials. The ancient process of extraction has been enhanced through the use of botanical extraction chillers, which can operate at temperatures will below freezing up to room temperature.

The botanical extraction chiller process is used by the botanical oil industry and includes the use of some form of solvent such as ethanol. Other methods include carbon dioxide and various petroleum solvents. In every instance, the desired effect is separation of the key components.

Carbon dioxide has been found to be a very safe and practical substance for the extraction process. Its main attraction is its versatility since it can be placed under pressure and perform as a liquid or gas, which is referred to as its tunability. When carbon dioxide is placed under pressure and at controlled a controlled temperature, in the presence of plant materials, it causes a reaction that separates the key components.

The solvent method involves the immersion of the plant material in methanol, ether, or hexane. The mixture of solvent and plant material is placed at an extremely low temperature for an extended period of time. As the plant material blends with the solvent, separation occurs releasing the desired substance. The extraction chiller provides the necessary controlled environment and speeds up the process.

The botanical extraction chiller process is an essential part of many industries from medical experimentation to perfume production. The bright color of various fruits and vegetables have been enhanced with oils that have been extracted from plants. In many ways, the extraction process, though it is well known to chemical engineers, is one of the things we depend on but don’t realize it.
