    Mercurius Active Bidirectional Extractor with CMEP-OL Recovery Pump

    (System comes with 1 yr. limited warranty)

    The Mercurius system is a rack-mounted MK-V that is specifically built to be run actively. Bi-directional solvent input prevents channeling and ensures a full yield is achieved. The Mercurius system also features a recovery kit standard. The recovery pump has a coil bypass built onto the output to re-loop hot vapors back to the top of the material column. This is used to pressurize the material column after extraction to clear/assist in recovering the column.

    The Mercurius system features a recovery manifold that is also used as the overflow path when bottom filling. This allows the column to be recovered independently from the collection base. With this plumbing, the user is able to utilize the evaporative cooling properties of the extraction solvents. By injecting a small amount of solvent into a closed material column, slightly wetting the material, then recovering this solvent, the material is frozen once all solvent flips phase. This method, paired with an injection coil, ensures efficient dewaxing happens without excessive dry ice or expensive chilling units.

    This system is entirely rack mounted, giving this highly efficient system a small footprint. The rack also features a small shelf on the rear for tools and condensing coil.

      Extractor Configurations:

      • Professional: Our standard Mercurius model.  The Mercurius is designed for the professional, and comes standard with 3/8” lines, stainless steel LP, injection coil, active recovery and fully jacketed base. *NOTE* This model requires a heater circulator or chiller

       The professional model is 9ft tall. Please ensure you have proper vertical clearance.    

      • Elite:  The Elite series has all the same functionality as the Professional, however the material column and collection base are separated. This shortens the height of the unit significantly, as well as making operation easier. The rack mounted collection base comes standard with a drain port and extract dispensing nozzle for easy extract removal.  The collection base has a manifold to control flow and recovery path.  Recovery is increased ½” valves and lines, increasing recovery speeds.  The recovery system on the Elite comes with the Master Vapor 6CFM diaphragm recovery pump, which is C1D1 explosion proof. *NOTE* This model requires a heater circulator or chiller

      • Recovery Manifold
      • 1/2" Recovery
      • MVP
      • Jacketed SS Tank with internal coil




      *Note:  Column capacity may vary depending on the density of packed material and packing density. Capacity is calculated using the industry standard of 4.2g/in3. This is the upper limit for column capacity.  Low density, uncut, and/or lightly packed material can reduce capacity by 50%. 
      For best results, we recommend to tightly pack coarse ground material.
