Your oleoresin must be dissolved in a solvent like ethanol, isopropanol, and methanol. We do not recommend more volatile solvents on this unit such as pentane, or hexane.
Further clarification and decontamination is achieved by using a silica based medium and lab grade filter papers to produce a tincture that is as clear as possible which has been scrubbed of dirt and debris, mold and bacteria, most color from chlorophyll and other contaminants, heavy metals from fertilizers, and some chemicals from pesticides.
All valves and plumbing are included, and we use cam and grove fittings and sanitary fittings so this unit is easy to disassemble and clean or unplug pipes to move it around. We know how nasty and sticky oleoresins are so this machine breaks down quickly and completely so you can clean every nook.
