ESTRATTORE EXTRACTOR WORKER 500 LITERS - ITALIAN MADE - 24 MONTH WARRANTY (UPDATED MODEL)

Extractor for essential oils made entirely of stainless steel AISI 304. Support frame tilting to facilitate emptying of the distiller and cleaning. Boiler and cover are insulated to reduce condensation during operation. Inside the boiler are provided with the bottom grid and the top grid. Condenser tube bundle with double temperature control to adjust the condensation water. Florentine vase with the possibility of aromatic water recirculation.

The opening of the cover is made quickly, to reduce the time of loading and unloading. It is advisable to accessorize distiller with two loading baskets, one for the material inside the distillation and one for the new load in order to increase the number of distillations. The loading of the baskets can be made using the hoist mounted on a suitable fixed structure on the support frame.

Distillers may work with gas burner or steam generator by entering the steam distributor.

What to use it for?
  • Leaves and small branches
  • Flowers
  • Roots
To make:
  • Essential oil
  • Aromatic water

DESCRIPTION: EXTRACTOR WORKER 500 LITERS

  • Capacity 500 L with insulation
  • Line pipes condenser
  • Florentine tank¬†for separation
  • Cover with fast open system

Heat Source

This extractor requires a heat source. For this larger 500L model, you will need to use a gas cooker.

500L Worker Efficiency Upgrades

There have been some efficiency updates to the 500L Worker in terms of:

  • Florentine vase: revised and more efficient
  • Condensation system: revised and more efficient

Here are some more details on the technical modifications / enhancements:

FLORENTINE VASE:

The old model faced some challenges in the distillation/separation of essential oils with a density very near to water, especially rose petal essential oil.

A specific study was made on this with internal technicians and external support from an expert consultant on essential oil distillation.

The new shape changes the inlet of the condensed mix of water and essential oil which now flows in from the bottom of the florentine vase and the profile of the vessel changes from cylindrical into conical.

The entry of condensed fluids from below and not from above, as it was in the old model, together with the conical profile, helps to break and slow down the mixing flows and speeds up / improves the separation of essential oil from aromatic water.

This model ensures best efficiency in separation for all kinds of essential oil.

This enhancement has been applied, tested on the field and approved.

Furthermore, a cylindrical glass septum has been added on the top / collar of the Florentine to optimise the essential oil that accumulates during distillation in order to better adjust the oil output / tapping levels, to better regulate the return of aromatic water in the boiler (where needed) and to better evaluate the progress of the distillation.

CONDENSATION SYSTEM:

The position of the condenser has been changed from vertical to horizontal with 3 degrees of slope.

This was adapted based on the configuration of our larger machines (FARMER - MASTER) and has been verified with our chemical / process engineer consultant to increase heat exchange and optimise the condenser cooling water consumption. This setup has proven to be more efficient in dozens of installations.
