Some botanical extractors have a desired temperature of only 80 ° F to boil off the butane, others may be as high as 115 ° F. These apparently low temperatures don’t seem challenging to achieve but once the system is boiling off the butane at the desired rate the chilling effect can freeze over the tank, stopping the process. Our drum heaters for butane extractors have been used to maintain the desired tank temperature for botanical extractors from hobby size systems all the way up to large commercial tanks.
CHR botanical extractor heaters can be made to any size/ shape and be made to have the proper power for the process. Many systems work well at 3 watts/sq inch but we have had some systems require as much as 10 watts sq/inch depending on the rate of evaporation.
These drum heaters for butane extractors can be made from fabric style heating jackets or more commonly from silicone mat heaters.
CHR can design and provide adequate temperature control to make the system turn-key. Temperature sensors installed in the heating jacket or silicone mat heater sense the surface temperature of the tank and provide accurate temperature control.
To ensure safety, Thermal Fuses or Manual Reset Upper Limit thermostats can be used as a back-up device.
Let our design team create the proper extractor heater for your botanical extractor system. Once we understand your tank sizes and the system operation we can design and manufacture a turn-key heater system quickly and economically.
