Methods For Extracting Solute From A Source Material

Methods for extracting solute from source material, including depositing the source material including solute in canisters, introducing solvent into the canisters, exposing the source materials to the solvents for predetermined periods of time to create extract mixtures including extracted solute and recycled solvent, communicating, fluidly, the extract mixtures to an extract container. Some examples include separating recycled solvent, including heating the container to evaporate the recycled solvent, and collecting the recycled solvent in a solvent collection container in fluid communication with the extract container. Some examples include collecting recycled solvent in solvent collection containers in fluid communication with the extract containers, the recycled solvent being stored as a liquid. Some examples include removably attaching canisters in fluid communication with extract containers.

3 Independent Claims

  • Independent Claim 1. A method for extracting solute from a source material, the method comprising: depositing the source material having a solute in a canisterintroducing a solventinto the canisterexposing the source material to the solvent for a predetermined period of time to create an extract mixture having the solute in solution with the solventfluidly communicating the extract mixture to a first extract container, thefirst extract container in fluid communication with the canisterselectively fluidly communicating the extract mixture to a second extract container, the second extract container selectively being in fluid communication with the canisterseparatingthe solute from the extract mixture to define a recycled solvent by heating one or more of the first extract container and the second extract container to evaporate the recycled solventand collecting the recycled solvent in a solvent collectioncontainer in fluid communication with one or more of the first extract container and the second extract container.

  • Independent Claim 9. A method for extracting solute from a source material, the method comprising: placing a source material having a solute in a canisterremovably and fluidly attaching the canister to an extract container via connecting the canister to adetachable canister interfaceremovably and fluidly attaching the canister to a solvent source container via connecting the canister to the detachable canister interfaceintroducing a solvent into the canisterexposing the source material to thesolvent for a predetermined period of time to create an extract mixture having the solute in solution with the solventcommunicating the extract mixture to the extract container, the extract container in fluid communication with the canisterandseparating the solute from the extract mixture to define a recycled solvent by heating the extract container to evaporate the recycled solvent, wherein the detachable canister interface is configured to: receive the canister to support the canister influid communication with a solvent source containerand selectively release the canister when the detachable canister interface is manipulated by a user.

  • Independent Claim 14. A method for extracting solute from a source material, the method comprising: exposing the source material in a canister to a liquid solvent for a predetermined period of time to create an extract mixture having the solute in solution withthe liquid solventcommunicating the extract mixture to an extract container, the extract container in fluid communication with the canisterseparating the solute from the extract mixture to define an evaporated solvent by, heating the extractcontainer to evaporate the liquid solventcooling the evaporated solvent to a temperature below the boiling point of the solvent to define a recycled liquid solvent prior to collecting the recycled liquid solvent in the solvent collection containerand collecting the recycled liquid solvent in a solvent collection container in fluid communication with the extract container, the recycled liquid solvent being stored in the solvent collection container as a liquid.
