In Line Oil Winterization and Evaporation Production Suite Project

Optimizing Botanicals Oil Production Facility

A pharmaceutical-grade botanicals oil producer approached Cheme to scale up a multi-step winterization and evaporation process. The client’s goal was to replace the existing time consuming manual process which used laboratory scale equipment with a single integrated system to ensure consistency and increased throughput of each batch.

Cheme assessed the existing manual process which spanned over multiple days and determined what steps could be streamlined. The system was designed with the capability to be Cleaned In Place and with a focus on improving operator safety due to the use of ethanol as a solvent in the winterization process. The system and facility design met the requirements for hazardous classification requirements, local building and fire codes.

Due to the high paced nature of the project, procurement and construction proceeded in parallel with the design.
