Extraction & Analytical Equipment

Since 1996, Accudyne has manufactured equipment tailored for the extraction of high value CBD, THC, terpenes and other herbal extracts using a Supercritical CO2 process.

CO2 has distinct advantages over the more conventional ethanol as a solvent because:

  • The equipment can be set to target specific extracts (With ethanol extraction the solvent dissolves everything in the hemp in one go, which then must be further separated)

  • The resultant extract is therefore of higher purity

  • The CO2 “solvent” is far less expensive and can be 100% recycled

  • The equipment runs completely automatically once set

  • Ethanol is highly flammable and so fire-suppressing infrastructure costs are eliminated

While our Supercube 1000+ is the launch-standard small-scale benchtop unit to get you started, we have the expertise to support your start-up, existing research plans and even perhaps your future ambition to launch into full (and potentially fully automated) production
