Corken UL Certified Plant Oil Extraction Compressor System
Since 1924, Corken has been the market leader in providing gas compression and industrial pumps to the LPG, petrochemical, chemical and gas processing sectors.
Since the beginning of time, plant chemicals and substances have offered nutritional and therapeutic benefits. Scientists started employing plant oil extraction to separate the desired components on a wide scale as they learnt more about the therapeutic capabilities of diverse plant materials. Hydrocarbon extraction is used to remove desired substances from the remainder of the plant. Ethanol and carbon dioxide (CO2) are two more forms of extraction; nevertheless, hydrocarbon is a more commonly employed method since it is more effective and affordable.
It is more important than ever to guarantee that the equipment utilised has been fully UL Certified for Indoor Use due to the variety of indoor production environments involved in plant oil extraction. The only fully UL Certified compressor system for the plant oil extraction sector is the Corken E91 compressor. Corken is also accredited to the Good Manufacturing Practise (GMP), ATEX, and Machinery Directives of the European Union, as well as the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards for quality and environmental management systems.
