Apart from being illegal everywhere, open blasting is a hazard to your health and home. We’ve all heard stories of houses blowing up. You Tube is littered with videos showing explosions. There is no safe way, and no safe product that results from it. Open blasting simply has no place in this industry.

Closed loop systems eliminate the release of volatile gases, by recovering butane used during the extraction process, through recovery pumps and vacuum pumps that push and pull back gas through the extraction cylinder.

The systems involved in closed loop processing can be broken down into the basics, by looking at the anatomy, setup, and mechanics of the closed loop system. For anyone just starting out, this guide is essential: a step-by-step guide, equipment used, temperature and pressure settings, taking you through all parts of processing.

Please download our guide on “CLOSED LOOP EXTRACTION” for an overview of the basic setup and mechanics of a simple closed loop system, which walks through each step in the processing of BHO extractions.
