(k) “Nonvolatile solvent” means any solvent used in the extraction process that is not a volatile solvent. For purposes of this division, a nonvolatile solvent includes carbon dioxide (CO2) used for extraction and ethanol used for extraction or post – extraction processing.

California Code of Regulations, Title 17 Division 1 Chapter 13
§40225 Closed-Loop Extraction System Requirements

Chemical extractions using CO2 or a volatile solvent shall be conducted in a professional closed loop extraction system. The system shall be commercially manufactured and bear a permanently affixed and visible serial number. The system shall be certified by a licensed engineer that the system was commercially manufactured, safe for its intended use, and built to codes of recognized and generally accepted good engineering practices, such as:

(1) The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME);
(2) American National Standards Institute (ANSI);
(3) Underwriters Laboratories (UL); or
(4) The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

The certification document must contain the signature and stamp of a professional engineer and the serial number of the extraction unit being certified.

Professional closed loop systems, other equipment used, the extraction operation, and facilities must be approved for use by the local fire code official and meet any required fire, safety, and building code requirements specified in:

(1) National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards;
(2) International Building Code (IBC);
(3) International Fire Code (IFC); and

As per the current guidelines, ethanol does not fall into the volatile solvent category. However, ProExtractionUSA ensures that the system complies with volatile manufacturing guidelines as well, to go “above and beyond” and guarantee the utmost safety for the operators and employees. All electrical components we recommend bear an ETL or UL mark, and the system has been designed to comply with ASME via a pressure relief device as outlined above. TruSteel has obtained a professional engineering stamp to ensure the strictest quality control and compatibility with any given jurisdiction.
