The more we write about the industry, the more impressed we become about the regulatory model that the great state of Colorado has created, tweaked, and enforced since the state legalized Medical Marijuana back in 2010 and then Adult-Use Marijuana in 2013. They have a variety of materials available to anyone that you may find useful in establishing your own best practices, regardless of the state you operate in.
One such piece of information that was recently brought to CBE’s attention is the Denver Fire Department’s list of approved extraction commitment, which is simply a report of machines that the manufacturers have submitted a Master Engineering Report for approval of their equipment.
As promised when we shared the SuperCritical CO2 Extraction Equipment HotList this past summer, CBE has been gathering the names of butane extraction manufactures that you may want to consider when looking for that type of solution. Rick Scarpello, CEO of Medically Correct and Incredible Extractor has already published a piece on the benefits of BHO extraction, but can be left to question since his company competes in the space after trying a variety of different machines over the past 6 years.
Below are ten companies whose equipment has made it to the Denver Fire Department’s approved list. The list is in alphabetical order and a step in the right direction for those trying to decide which manufacturers to invite to the dance. Remember, the goals and outcomes that you are trying to achieve using BHO extraction equipment is another part, if not the most important part of your RFP criteria.
|Colorado Extractions LTD||071-KJ (Haskel)||Butane or Propane|
|Emotek Labs||Obe (Haskel)||Butane|
|Extraction Tek Solutions||1300 LHBES 1300/C (Haskel)||Butane|
|Delta 9||B1000 (Haskel)||Butane|
|Isolate Extraction Systems||LP1000 & 20L 250||Butane or Propane|
|MC Machinery||The Incredible Extractor||Butane|
|Precision Extraction Solutions||PX1 & V2016 PX1 (Haskel)||Butane or Butane/Propane mix|
|Sweet Leaf Technologies||3-IN-1||Butane or Propane|
|Universal Grow Controls||Kelvinator||Butane|
Remember, the goals and outcomes that you are trying to achieve using BHO extraction equipment is another part, if not the most important part of your RFP criteria. There are several other equipment manufacturers out there that have not made the Denver Fire Department’s Approved list, including Best Value Vacs, Terpp Extractors # 18 & #25 respectively on the 2016 CBE AB list, Tamisium and SubZero.
Hope this helps!
