The 8.5lb Bi-Directional rack has the same function as the stand alone biflow, but with the convenience of a rack mounting system. By using a bottom flood on the first wash to ensure all material has seen solvent, preventing channeling through the material. Finish the run with a top flood input to ensure all residuals have been washed from the material. Oil bearing solvent is collected in the collection base under the material column. Once collected, solvent is distilled and recovered, leaving the oils in the collection base. This is a passive unit that utilizes pressure differences created by manipulating temperature to move solvent.

This unit can be upgraded into an Active recovery unit by purchasing the upgrade kit. https://www.bestvaluevacs.com/clasu-k-trs21.html

Extractor Configurations:

  • Explorer: Our standard Athena extractor model.  Comes with a welded bottom base and standard LP tank.  This model provides all the benefits of the bi-directional design without any bells and whistles.  The Explorer model is perfect for those looking to process crude extract.
  • Professional: This model features upgrades to help produce a higher quality extract.  Solvent is entered into the system through an injection coil.  This coil is chilled with dry ice and alcohol, dropping solvent temperatures to dewax inline. Fats and waxes are not soluble when solvent temperature is subzero, so chilling solvent on input is the simplest way to achieve high clarity extract.  It features a larger bore on valves and hoses and a stainless steel LP tank. The Professional also comes with a removable bottom on the collection base. This makes removal of extract after the run as easy as possible. 
  • Elite:  The Elite series is our fully upgraded Orthrus model.  The elite series adds a level of dependability needed for those seeking to produce the highest quality extracts.   It features a larger bore on valves and hoses, all American instrumentation valves by SSP, jacketed collection base, and stainless steel LP tank.  Dewaxing occurs by chilling solvent on injection.  The Elite series boasts increased efficiency on both solvent input and recovery by bumping up all valves and lines to 3/8” JIC.  The jacketed collection gives precision during recovery, allowing a heated fluid to be circulated around the base.  This method keeps temperature both accurate and consistent. The stainless steel LP tank is able to be opened and cleaned, making solvent contamination a non-issue.   *NOTE* This model requires a heater circulator or chiller

Optional Upgrades:

• System Valves: Upgrades our Standard valves to High Quality USA Made SSP Instrumental or Swagelok fully encapsulated mini ball valves
• Base: Choose from our various collection bases. Standard base is a 12x12 welded bottom with a 12x12 clamped on top. The splatter platter replaces the 12x12 welded with a 12” splatter and 12”x12” open spool. The jacketed splatter platter upgrade has a jacketed splatter, jacketed 12x12 open spool and a standard spool
. • Recovery Tank: This upgrade changes the standard #50 LP tank with either: Dual Recovery adds a 2”x3” spool with (2) valves on the sides, extra hose, and an extra recovery tank. The dual recovery manifold clamps under one of the poly sights on the collection and allows user to recover to two LP tanks, cutting recovery times significantly. or a dual recovery with 2 Stainless Steel Jacketed #50 LP tanks.
• Hemispherical Lid: This upgrade replaces the standard flat collection base lid with our hemispherical model. Hemi lids add extra headspace and allow a better view of the center dip-tube and collection base. The hemispherical lid has (2)1/4” FNPT and (2)1/2” FNPT ports, (2)2” triclamp ports for sight glasses and a 1.5” triclamp port for the center.
• Active Upgrade Kits: Adds your choice of Active Recovery Kit https://www.bestvaluevacs.com/trs21-active-closed-loop-recovery-kit.html, which is used to speed up the recovery process, or the Active Recirculation/Recovery Kit https://www.bestvaluevacs.com/clasu-k-trs21.html, which allows you to recirculate solvent back thru the material column, then also speeds up recovery.
