CF-1000 Terpene Cold Trap



Vacuum Purging

During solvent extraction, vacuum purging is an essential process in producing a high quality end product. Due to the low vacuum pressure and heat required to remove residual solvents, some terpenes are also removed in the process. Without a Terpene Trap, the terpenes enter the vacuum pump where they degrade and cause damage. Our food grade Terpene Traps condense and preserve these terpene vapors as liquid before they enter the vacuum pump. These terpenes can then be consumed and/or reintroduced in post processes.


Since high temperatures are required to decarboxylate large amounts of terpenes are lost to the atmosphere. Our Terpene Traps collect these volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a food grade environment.


Terpenes are soluble in most solvents. Some Terpenes vaporize with the solvent as it's reclaimed from the collection vessel and end up back in the solvent tank. Terpene Traps can separate them from the solvent vapor stream. 

The CF-1000 is specifically designed to capture terpenes during vacuum purging, steam distillation, solvent distillation, or decarboxylation. It's easy to use plug and play operation, Teflon coating, and digital temperature control make it the best choice to reclaim and isolate your terpenes.
