      PUMPING SOLUTIONS FOR CBD PRODUCTION

      CBD OilThe production of hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) oil has exploded globally over the past several years. Hemp-based CBD is taking on countless form factors, from topical treatments to edibles and beverages.

      There are also countless methods of extracting CBD oil from hemp plants, with the most common being ethanol, supercritical CO2, and hydrocarbon.

      All extraction processes present unique pumping challenges, such as extremely low temperatures, combustible, viscous, and solids-laden fluids. Whether you're a large-scale producer, small-scale lab, equipment maker, or consultant, you need a resource you can trust to provide the right pump for your application.

      Since 1983, Versamatic has set the standard of performance for AODD pumps. Our AODD pump portfolio is broad and versatile, providing quick solutions that work perfectly for hemp-based CBD oil extraction, as well as post-recovery and filtration systems.

      Why AODD Pumps for CBD Production?

      AODD pumps deliver unique benefits that are unrivaled by other pump technologies, such as centrifugal, lobe, gear, screw, hose, and piston/plunger. These pumps require little maintenance and are cost-effective solutions for transferring almost any viscous fluid safely.

      Here are some additional benefits of AODD pumps:

      Why AODD Pumps for CBD Oil Production

      • They’re safe: Our pumps are available in ATEX-compliant models and can be safely grounded to handle flammable liquids like ethanol. 
      • They can pump cold fluids: When properly fitted, our AODD pumps can pump chilled fluids as cold as -40 degrees Fahrenheit/Celsius, which is crucial in the production of CBD oil.
      • They’re designed for filtration: Our AODD pumps are designed to deadhead and can run dry, making them a perfect choice for filtration applications like a filter press, lenticular filter, or centrifuge.
      • They’re easy to clean/sanitize: In a market desiring highly polished (shiny) surface finishes, AODD pumps are simple to disassemble and clean. Some can go through a clean-in-place (CIP) process in which the pumps can be flushed and sanitized without being disassembled.
      • They meet required certification levels: AODD pumps are available in a wide range of certification levels to meet the stringent needs of the industries they serve. Some common certifications are:

      FDA: FDA-compliant pumps are made with FDA-approved materials, like FDA Hytrel, FDA Santoprene, PTFE, and stainless steel. Some manufacturers also offer electropolished stainless steel components for a superior surface finish and to eliminate ferrous metals from contacting the products being pumped.

      1935/2004 Food Contact Materials Standard: This certification (shown by the goblet and fork logo) means food processing and hygienic pumps are made of lab-tested and approved materials that will not affect the composition of the food products they meet, such as 316 electropolished stainless steel, virgin PTFE, Hytrel 4069, and Santoprene 273-40.
