Whether air- or water-cooled, industrial chillers work the same way as other refrigeration systems built into your home, refrigerator, and car. However, instead of keeping your environment and food cool, they chill water or glycol to keep your industrial processes cool. The cooling effect works by cycling refrigerant through the chiller system, with various temperature and pressure changes happening at every stage. In this article, we’ll review the components of chillers and outline the unique role they play during each of the five cooling phases.
Whether your facility runs on ethanol, CO2, hydrocarbon, butane honey oil (BHO), or another solvent, selecting the best chiller for your operation will help ensure product quality and prevent damage. How do you know which cannabis chiller is right for your cannabis operation? In this post, we’ll cover the must-have features to look for when selecting the best chiller for CBD, THC, CBN, and other cannabinoid extraction in a high-volume facility.
When selecting a cannabis chiller for effective compound extraction, the best option will have the following essential features:
Cannabis extraction is an industrial process for converting target molecules in cannabis raw material into a usable form. It uses sophisticated equipment designed to perform specialized functions, such as a cannabis chiller for precise temperature control. The purpose of cannabis extraction is to remove plant oils and target and collect potent compounds, such as THC, CBD, terpenes, and other precious cannabinoids. These compounds are used to create high-demand cannabis products, such as tinctures, capsules, hash, and oils.
The most common solvent-based cannabis extraction methods are:
