The ENTEXS MIDI is a complete, turn-key, closed loop, cold ethanol extraction system capable of continuously processing biomass to true full-spectrum crude and/or distillate. The continuous feed carousel system, cascade chillers, and multi-stage wiped film evaporation go from bulk biomass to high quality crude without any operator intervention. This patent-pending system provides unmatched, truly automated hands-free technology. ENTEXS MIDI: 4500 pounds per day throughput
Our systems are designed for optimization on each of your processes.
No touch process throughout the extraction process eliminates potential reduced efficiencies, compromised quality, increased labor and safety risks.
From your phone or computer, real-time and trend monitoring of extraction process can be leveraged to optimize efficiency.
Bypass this extensive and time-consuming step by controlling and maintaining solvent temperature during the extraction process below -50 °C.
Solvent temperature control maintains precise extraction temperature. Combined with our automation, complete control over final product states can be configured and run.
User configured routines and flow control from biomass to full spectrum crude, distillate and/or isolate

A. Biomass self-feeding bin holds daily processing weight and auto feeds biomass to extraction.
B. Inclined cleated conveyor with auto weigh scale loads specified biomass processing weight and allows real time and time-history data of processing throughput.
C. Patent pending extraction carousel utilizes ultra cold solvent extraction for high quality, continuous extracts without the need for winterization.
D. Solvent recovery press with dual stage filtration removes residual solvent entrained in biomass, filters, and introduces back into process stream for optimum extraction yield.
E. Touch screen GUI with FPGA based automation controller enables hands free system control.
F. Insulated holding tanks allow cold solvent and tincture temps to be maintained while reducing system energy consumption.
G. Evaporation and integrated distillation module recovers solvent for re-use and post polishes crude in the FFE / WFE combo, eliminating the need for post processing in Roto-vaps. Integrated WFE with short path condenser allows hands free multi-pass distillation routines. Hands free module routines include solvent evaporation, final crude polishing, decarboxylation, multi pass distillation, and CIP options.
H. Cascade chiller matched to system energy needs allows continuous extraction temp to be controlled down to -100 C.
