A Bit About Us & Our Turnkey Hemp Extraction Systems
Located in beautiful Eugene, Oregon, March Scientific Inc. was founded by us, a father-son duo, Michael and Jeremy March. For over a decade we have built, owned and operated numerous hemp processing and hemp extraction facilities. Over those years, we have spent countless hours and resources developing the best extraction equipment company possible. We specialize in ethanol solvent recovery systems and equipment, and we do so for very specific reasons. Ethanol is widely available, cost effective, extremely efficient, relatively safe and reusable after recovery. Every extraction system and service we offer has been designed and engineered personally. As a result we are able to provide industry leading equipment and information needed to optimize your hemp processing business. Your success is our success, and we are fully dedicated to making it so.
Extraction Consulting & Equipment Training
We at March Scientific Inc. offer second-to-none consulting and extraction equipment training. Both will all but guarantee that you have a streamlined, highly functioning extraction company that's equipped to meet any industry demands. We offer ongoing, hands-on consulting services to help guide your business every step of the way. Whether you're a novice or seasoned extractor, we have experience, training and software available to take your company further, faster.
There are many options available when deciding on the best extraction solvent for your processing needs. The most commonly used solvents include butane, propane, carbon dioxide (CO2) and our personal favorite, ethanol.
Ethanol as a solvent offers the best of both worlds. It provides the efficiency of butane, while also providing the safety that comes with carbon dioxide (CO2) . The FDA classifies ethanol as safe for human consumption and is ubiquitous in the consumer products industry.
Ethanol has been widely used in the extraction industry for nearly a century. This solvent is easy to use, cost effective, and highly efficient. Known as a universal solvent, ethanol has the ability to dissolve almost all chemicals and substances, both polar and non-polar. Ethanol is considered the second most important solvent used for extraction next to water.
Plant material or 'biomass' is soaked or 'washed' in ethanol, which literally removes or 'extracts' all desired compounds in one fell swoop. The dissolving capabilities are so great that almost every substance can be removed from the biomass of any botanical material. Compounds such as cannabinoids and terpenes are pulled directly from biomass material simultaneously through ethanol extraction. The resulting byproduct is an already winterized oil that did not require additional steps or methods to achieve.
In addition to our beautiful turnkey extraction systems, we also offer turnkey consulting services. We aim to aid hemp processing businesses in achieving their extraction goals as fast as possible, while implementing the practices necessary to sustain growth long term.
We are not extraction equipment brokers or intermediaries. We are actual extractors who have personally designed and engineered every inch of every extraction system we offer. We have spent the time and resources required to complete the research and development necessary to offer expert level consulting. We implore you, do not reinvent the wheel, and do not wait until it's too late. Allow our team at March Scientific Inc. to provide your business with our invaluable consultancy services.
“I started my hemp extraction company a couple of years ago. I hit some major road blocks and reached out to March Scientific for consulting. They provided remarkable insights and advice, and now I am one of the leaders in the region for hemp processing. They absolutely know how to set up a company for success!” – Kyle T.
Extraction Equipment Training
A single hemp extraction system is capable of processing thousands of pounds of hemp biomass on a daily basis. A facility with multiple systems can process exponentially more per day. This sounds great initially, but what if that system's extraction yield efficiency is inconsistent run to run? Even worse, what if every extraction yield from every run is consistently low?
If your extraction systems are not properly set up, and your extractors are not properly trained on how to run those systems, your extraction business is losing out on substantial amounts of operating profits. If this trend continues your business will be operating at a loss.
Extraction systems and equipment can only perform as well as the extractors who operate them. The best system with the best equipment is useless until they can be properly utilized and maintained over time. With the correct training any extractor would be capable of correctly executing the entire extraction process again and again.
Our extraction equipment training is designed to teach your team how to be top notch extractors. We will teach them how to use every piece of equipment effectively and collectively as an overall system.
Hemp Extraction Systems Designed & Engineered By Us, Actual Hemp Extractors
Ethanol Recovery Centrifuges
Ethanol Recovery Centrifuges are the perfect system for entry-level hemp extractors and businesses alike. Centrifugation is often the best, first step in the hemp extraction. It is a very safe, quick and effective way to separate hemp plant material from desired essential oils & extracts. Also known as a Centrifugal Ethanol Recovery System (CERES), these machines are simple to use and easy to maintain. As the name suggests, our centrifuges are designed for closed loop operation to maximize the amount of ethanol recovered. All of our centrifuge systems have a solvent recovery efficiency rate between 95-98%, and an extraction throughput efficiency of 98% or more. These systems get the bulk of the work done with little maintenance and minimal technical training.
Falling Film Evaporators
Falling Film Evaporators (FFE) are becoming increasingly popular in the cannabis and hemp extraction industries. These machines are used for high volume extraction purposes due to their efficiency and effectiveness. FFE's are also solvent recovery systems. Through the use of condensation and evaporation, falling film evaporators are able to reclaim or recover solvents, which then are ready for reuse for future extraction runs.
Ethanol is the most popular solvent used in FFE's because of its high recovery rate. Ethanol has a low viscosity, which means there is less resistance for it to flow as a liquid. When the ethanol passes through the vertical tubes of the falling film evaporator, the liquid solvent is heated and becomes vaporized or evaporated into gas. It is later cooled by condensers, and turned back into liquid form and reclaimed for further use.
A falling film evaporator is necessary for any large scale, high volume hemp extraction business. FFE's increase operational output while decreasing the cost of solvent purchasing & waste disposal. More simply put, your return on investment (ROI) goes up while your operating costs remain low.
“I purchased a couple falling film evaporators and had had my entire team trained by March Scientific at our processing lab. It was one the best decision I've ever made. The equipment is absolutely beautiful and operates like a dream. My entire crew is confident and we're all very happy to be working with such knowledgeable professionals” – Steve R.
Wiped Film Evaporators
Our wiped film evaporator systems are leading the way in molecular separation, more commonly known as thin film distillation. These systems are designed to handle high viscosity liquids that are sensitive to heat. This is why our wiped film evaporators are the perfect extraction system for the separation, concentration and distillation of essential hemp extracts. They are specially built for high volume hemp oil distillation production.
Wiped film evaporators use a mechanical wiper system that rotates and forces crude extract product into a thin, evenly distributed film on the inner surface of a heated cylindrical tube. This ensures the product to being distilled is 'wiped' into a uniform thickness. The constant mixing and agitation of the wiper blades also reduces fouling at the inside of the cylinder wall. This is where the desired extract distillate is most concentrated.
If you desire the highest quality hemp extracts at most efficient commercial scale processing level, then look no further than our Wiped Film Evaporators. Remember, we offer world class consulting and equipment training. We will help you properly configure, operate and maintain your wiped film evaporator like a seasoned extractor.
