With the rise of solvents in the Cannabis and Hemp industry, Maratek Environmental has seen an increased demand for our technologies and engineering experience.
We first developed our Oil and Ethanol Recovery Systems (OERS) specifically for the cannabis industry to automate the three-step process of bulk recovery, residual recovery, and decarboxylation within one system. As we grew with our clients we continued to develop other solutions based on their needs.
As an industry leader, we provide fully designed, safe, engineered and optimized turnkey facilities in an automated closed loop process from biomass to a full spectrum decarboxylated oil. We pride ourselves in our ability to offer high efficiency, low labor, turnkey facilities with both production and up-time guarantees.
Our turnkey extraction facilities are designed to utilize either warm or cryogenic ethanol extraction in both single and multiple wash configurations. Additionally, we can provide turnkey solutions for CO2 extraction including automatic in-line winterization through our TAWS technologies (Turnkey Automated Winterization Systems).
The Solvent Saver 300 system Maratek installed here at Colorado Printing is working extremely well. It has lived up to every Maratek claim. We had tried another system that was nothing but headache after headache. We are pleased the Maratek Solvent Saver was able to help use reclaim our waste solvents.
Maratek has been a pleasure to work with since the day we first connected. I was already producing CBD oil out of my facility in Oregon, when I saw some Maratek equipment at an MJBizCon show. I had been having a huge bottleneck in the recovery section of my processing line from using a falling film system, and a rotary evaporator. There were also issues of getting oil recovered with my ethanol, making it have a yellowish-orange tinge. After purchasing the Maratek C500 system, which was properly sized for my operation, the bottleneck disappeared and the system automatically combined the falling film, rotary evaporator, AND decarboxylation steps into one unit. My operators literally just ensure there is an infeed, a place for the outfeed, and set it and forget it. The Maratek system had build in a “mist eliminator” to ensure that there was no worry of oil entrainment within my recovered ethanol. Their quality of equipment, along with confidence to give throughput guarantees made it easy for me to decide.
Maratek is a great Canadian company that has taken decades of solvent recovery equipment manufacturing experience and brought it to the cannabis industry. They've been great to work with on clients projects which their equipment seamlessly integrating with our EV-MASS ethanol extraction solution. Both Maratek's and Evolved's Sales and Engineering teams have developed and provided turn-key ethanol extraction solutions that are proudly manufactured in Canada.
The Maratek Solvent Saver was installed just over 3 years ago and I can say it has lived up to its claims of being able to provide quality recovered solvent for reuse on our Heidelberg sheetfed presses. We had looked at other systems but the flexibility, small space requirements, and being able to use our current solvent without switching made the Maratek system our final choice. We feel we made the right decision. Lake Country Press believes in doing its part in helping our environment, the Maratek Solvent Saver definitely plays a big part in our environmental and cost saving initiatives.
I am very pleased with Maratek’s automatic recycling unit and service department. They have enabled us to clean up our contaminated solvent waste so that we can re-use it on-site.
We have had the Maratek Solvent Saver for several years now and without a doubt it helped us achieve and maintain lower waste generator status and make our waste volume more manageable. I allow tours for Maratek because I am proud of what it does for us and feel everyone that creates solvent waste should have a Maratek System.
Maratek’s unit has worked really well. We have been using it to recycle toluene from road paints, but most surprising of all - we can’t believe how quiet it is.
We have had very few issues with our recycling unit. The installation and on-site setup was simple and fast.
