Apeks Supercritical has been designing and manufacturing botanical oil extraction systems that utilize subcritical and/or supercritical CO2 as a solvent since 2001. Systems range in size from our smallest 1 liter benchtop system to our 40 liter production system and are fully automated for “lights out” operation. We are veteran owned, have several degreed engineers on staff and all of our systems are proudly built in Johnstown, Ohio with as many American made parts and components as possible. We have more than 300 systems being used in extraction applications across the US with more systems being added daily!
Apeks CO2 extraction systems feature: lights-out automation with internet messaging and automated controls, the patented Apeks Valveless Expansion Technology (no clogging), and Diaphragm Compressor Technology (20 to 50% faster extractions while consuming half the power). The 5000psi Production Series also utilizes the Apeks Dual-Phase Pumping System (gas and liquid) for two times the speed of extraction. Other advantages include: simple fractional extraction and cold separation processes which preserve volatile oils for higher-quality and higher-quantity yields, two levels of safety protection, data-tracking capability, and CO2 recovery (up to 95%) – all supported by comprehensive onsite and virtual training.
We are advancing the impact of CO2 extraction by expanding its applications with systems designed for cost-effective, efficient and versatile processing, capable of large-scale production.
