OCTOBER 15, 2020

The wildfires on the west coast directly impacted our staff at Delta Separations. Thankfully, everyone is safe and slowly recovering. We will continue to monitor the situation and support our staff every step of the way. This has not affected our delivery times and shipments are still being send out on time.

  • Efficient: A two-person crew can output an average of 12-15 kilos of dry hash per day
  • Easy to clean: Basin is made of sanitary food-grade stainless steel with 2" port for easy drainage
  • Easy to operate: Runs easily either manually, or with the capability to set repeat recipes for auto operations

The powerful forces created by its cross flow turbulence comes from the bottom-driven paddle in combination with a uniquely shaped wash basin. The result is a maximum separation of resin heads from the plant surface with negligent to non-existent plant-particulate contamination. ‚Äč

On a very basic level, the function of the Falling Film Evaporator (FFE) can be summed up as follows:

  1. The operator inputs a cannabinoid and ethanol solution (tincture)
  2. The FFE evaporates the bulk of the solvent (ethanol)
  3. Outputting separately the crude extract, and the condensed solvent.

They are selling fast, but we still have some systems in stock! If you're in a tight spot with your harvest, contact us to find out how we can help with extraction.
