Increase Safety, Improve Quality, Lower Costs, Reduce Overall Equipment Footprint

The Elara Extractor is an industry-leading, automated, end-to-end, cryogenically chilled ethanol cannabis extractor capable of processing up to 120 lbs/hr of biomass. It combines three traditionally separate and manually operated processing steps into one fully automated process, with a small footprint of 120" x 60" x 96" and a highly integrated system. The total cost of ownership is superior to its competitors, and it is designed with operators in mind.

Why Ethanol Extraction?

Ethanol is the ideal solvent for processing cured biomass at industrial scale. When incorporated into an end-to-end automated and integrated process, ethanol extraction provides the highest throughput per capital expenditure in the industry. While not appropriate for live resin or full-spectrum extraction, nothing compares to the Elara for safe and consistent winterized crude oil production.
