The original steam-solvent extraction method Eden Labs was built on, our Coldfinger distillation units continue to be a proud centerpiece of our company.
This is Eden Labs proprietary distillation/extraction method. A basket of
herb is suspended above a pool of solvent with an inverted condenser
above it. Heat and/or vacuum is applied to vaporize the solvent which then
liquefies on the condenser and drips through the herb thus extracting it. At
the same time the liquid solvent is saturating and stripping the active
constituents from the herb, solvent vapors are penetrating the herb making
the extraction more effective.
Our new and improved design allows the user to steam distill the mono
terpenes or essential oils out of the herb prior to coldfinger extraction all in
Tests have shown this process gives better yields than all other methods. In some cases, analysis of extracts made with this method has revealed compounds previously unknown to the material - leading researchers to conclude other methods either ignore or destroy certain constituents.
