Patent US9144751


Issued 2015-09-29

Systems For Extracting Solute From A Source Material

Systems for extracting solute from source material, including solvent source containers configured to store solvent, canisters in fluid communication with the solvent source containers and configured to contain the source material, extract containers in fluid communication with the canister and configured to fluidly receive extract solution from the canisters, heating elements thermally coupled with the extract containers. Some examples include solvent collection containers configured to receive post-extraction portions of the solvent from extract containers. In some examples, solvent collection containers are in fluid communication with solvent source containers and are configured to fluidly receive the post-extraction portion of the solvent and direct a portion of the post-extraction solvent to the solvent source containers. Some examples include a plurality of detachable canisters. Some examples include coolant thermally coupled with solvent collection lines configured to transmit post-extraction portions of solvent to solvent collection containers.

3 Independent Claims

  • Independent Claim 1. A system for extracting essential oil from a plant material, the system comprising: a solvent source container configured to store a solventa canister being: influid communication with the solvent source containerconfigured to contain the plant materialand configured to receive solvent from the solvent container in its interior to produce an extract solution having the solvent and the essential oilextracted from the plant materialan extract container in fluid communication with the canister, the extract container being configured to fluidly receive and collect the extract solution from the canisterand a heating element thermally coupled withthe extract container and configured to heat the extract container to a distilling temperature, the distilling temperature being greater than or equal to a boiling point of the solvent and below a boiling point of the essential oil to produce apost-extraction portion of the essential oil in the extract container, wherein the solvent source container is in fluid communication with the extract container.

  • Independent Claim 13. A system for extracting solute from a source material, the system comprising: a solvent source container configured to store a solventa canister detachably connected in fluid communication with the solvent source container and configuredto store the source material in its interior, the canister configured to receive solvent from the solvent source container in its interior to produce an extract solution including the solvent and the solute extracted from the source materialan extractcontainer in fluid communication with the canister, the extract container being configured to receive the extract solution from the canisteran extract container heating element thermally coupled with the extract container, the heating elementconfigured to heat the extract solution received in the extract container to a distilling temperature, the distilling temperature being greater than or equal to a boiling point of the solvent and below a boiling point of the solute to produce apost-extraction portion of the solvent in the extract containerand a canister interface configured to removably support the canister in fluid communication with the solvent source container and the extract container and configured to detachablysupport a supplemental canister in fluid communication with the solvent source container and extract container.

  • Independent Claim 17. A system for extracting solute from a source material, the system comprising: a solvent source container configured to store a solventa canister in fluid communication with the solvent source container and configured to store the sourcematerial in its interior, the canister configured to receive solvent from the solvent source container in its interior to produce an extract solution including the solvent and the solute extracted from the source materialan extract container in fluidcommunication with the canister, the extract container being configured to receive the extract solution from the canister a heating element thermally coupled with the extract container, the heating element configured to heat the extract solution receivedin the extract container to a distilling temperature, the distilling temperature being greater than or equal to a boiling point of the solvent and below a boiling point of the solute to produce an evaporated post-extraction portion of the solvent and apost-extraction portion of the solute in the extract containera solvent collection container in fluid communication with the extract container and in fluid communication with the solvent source container, the solvent collection container configured tofluidly receive the post-extraction portion of the solvent from the extract container and add the post-extraction portion of the solvent to a collected quantity of the solventa solvent collection line connected between the extract container and thesolvent collection container, the solvent collection line configured to transmit the post-extraction portion of the solvent from the extract container to the solvent collection containerand a coolant thermally coupled with the solvent collection line,the coolant defining a predetermined condensing temperature selected to condense the post-extraction portion of the solvent to a liquid prior to being received by the solvent collection container.
