I, David McGhee, would like to welcome you and give you a personal introduction to the first HIGH PERFORMANCE HYDROCARBON EXTRACTOR that recovers and cleans the solvent used for reuse. Now you can extract at low pressure with a cold or hot process, slow or fast for any length of time with more than one solvent simultaneously or alone and recover the solvent after you use it. The recovered solvent can be used over again indefinitely.
Shown here are the systems we stock regularly and are the hottest selling extractors created. If you need something larger we are not limited to what you see here. I suggest getting something you can grow into rather than grow out of. One things is for certain, after selling over 1000 extractors I have witnessed a lot of growth after obtaining one of these systems.
A Tamisium Extractor is the first commercially produced low temperature, low pressure extractor designed to use a liquid hydrocarbon as the primary extracting solvent and RECOVER IT for reuse safely, easily and economically. Our proprietary recovery system can recover as fast as you want if speed is required. Either way we can recover at the speed you need but remember that when extracting out volatile oils that evaporate easily you can easily loose those oils when you evaporate your solvent away too fast. Now you can go slow when you need to and go fast when you dont.
The Tamisium Extractor does this by using basic principles of physics without the aid of mechanical or electric compressors or pumps. By taking advantage of the enthalpy physical characteristics of Butane we are allowed to eliminate all these cumbersome expensive practices to move solvent from tank to tank and from gas to liquid phase and back again. Combining all the great features of all extraction systems of the world into one effecient simple to use unit for the first time. Extract delicate molecular structures with multiple or single solvents to target specific components in a plant and learn to use time and mild temperature, mild pressure and various solvent combinations to expand your product variety and quality. A Tamisium is a low wattage system and is capable of being run so economically that we will have to reevaluate what was once cost prohibitive.
As you can see from the photographs on the website, you are getting a heavy duty, laboratory quality, food grade capable extraction apparatus. This is a professional tool and system and with it you will produce the highest quality extraction available. All systems are built with stainless steel and assembled with full penetration argon purged welds and smoothed surfaces so you can create food products with this machine.
The Hydrocarbon Solvent of choice is Primarily N-Butane. Organically friendly and NON-TOXIC. This solvent has been used in the food industry for decades because it is one of the easiest solvents to cleanly evaporate away, leaving no trace and does not react with the food products being extracted. You may not be aware that butane is the propellant used in cooking oil spray canisters. Why not, it is safe, non-toxic, evaporates completely and dissolves the oil readily so it can be sprayed out of the low pressure canister and it provides the pressure to do so. The manipulation of this low pressure created by butane when placed in a closed system is what you will learn how to use and is what makes this system so incredible and easy to use.
The control parameters we control during extraction allows the most control of any extraction system. They are outlined below.
We call this the 6 parameters or QDTPTP process.
Is is through the manipulation of these repeatable adjustments that you will be able to duplicate any extraction process and repeat what you have done to produce the same consistent product every time.
All done without requiring additional expensive complicated dangerous equipment. When you are done extracting, the apparatus will recover the solvent for reuse and it will clean and separate from your product and any other solvents used with butane, during the recovery process. We even supply a proprietary product and process to remove other solvents used during the extraction process. Solvents that do not boil at room temperature and can be more difficult to remove.
Why use BUTANE.
Butane is a non toxic, very non polar solvent that has a linear molecular which is made up of hydrogen and carbon atoms that allow it to dissolve oils very effectively without reacting and creating other unwanted products. It will dissolve and extract essential oils and very delicate aromatics with great efficiency while preserving the integrity of the highly evaporative volatile compounds. Once extracted, the extracted components will more closely match the aroma, flavor and taste exactly as they resided in the plant. They will not be lost or destroyed during the extraction and evaporation and or recovery of the solvent used to extract them out because it is all done at very low temperatures and pressures. This low temperature and pressure is what separates this extractor from any other extraction process. I cannot say the same about all solvent recovery processes. On the contrary I can say they do not possess this quality. If heat, pressure and or speed is needed, it can be applied easily but it is an option rather than a requirement. If other polar or mid polar solvents are required, other solvents can easily be added before the extraction process initiates and they will separate from the butane when the butane is recovered.

TE-3000, TE8000 and larger systems.
Originally the Table Top Extractor was created to allow small scale extractions to be performed prior to filling this larger machine. We use the larger extractors once we figure out what extraction parameters work best for our desired application.
A computer model shows a 5 pound or 2.5 kilo extractor being used in the vertical process. This is not the only way to use them. The top solvent tank can be placed along side the system when weight is a concern.
Very easy to use and simple to understand. If you are using any other extraction process you will wonder why you ever did after using one of these new extractors, This extractor will make your extraction business much easier, safer, and faster. The Table Top Model is Ideal in laboratory settings for running test on solvent, pressure, time and temperature combinations prior to using larger more costly equipment.
After building and using this process for years I have encountered times where I would have to modify the system being used. At that time if I had to continue to do extractions with any other system than this one, I would rather shut my extraction business down and not do extractions at all. That is when I knew I had a great system.
In addition to ease of use there are some essential oils, aromas and plant chemicals that can not be dissolved and extracted by any other means than by using butane as the primary solvent, and now, you can recover the solvent for reuse automatically. The reason for this is the fact that you have to remove those other solvents after you use them. When doing so you have to boil them away. With volatile compounds that evaporate away easily such as aromas and fragrances you would certainly evaporate most if not all of those compounds away when you boil the solvent away. Butane boils at 32F. There are not many compounds I know of that boil at such a low temperature.
This extractor is not limited to essential oil extractions, perfumes or rare botanicals. Use it to extract biofuel from seeds, soil or clean oil laden machinery in a special cleaning vessel. It may be the most versatile extractor ever produced. It is definitely the highest yielding, easiest and lowest cost system available today.
