Commonly Asked Questions About HVE Distillation Equipment and Methods

With machinery that represents a peak in revolutionary technology comes a myriad of questions regarding how it functions. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about our product answered.

What does an HVE System cost? Are there financing options available?

For all cost inquiries please contact us directly via our Contact Us portal and a representative will be in contact with you shortly.

Do HVE Systems have any proprietary connectors?

No - all HVE products are made with universal connections and are compatible with all equipment sold at HVE or from other manufacturers.

Can HVE Systems be installed in C1D1 facilities?

Yes - Several HVE Systems have been retrofitted and installed to meet highly specific requirements in several different facilities with C1D1 labs across the United States and Canada.

What other ancillaries do I need with my machine?

The basic package would be a vacuum pump (varying sizes depending on purchase), heat/cooling re-circulator to run the internal condenser.

What kind of power is required to run an HVE machine?

120, 240, or Triple Phase is recommended depending on your operation size. All HVE WFE currently only require single phase 240 and 120, and can be run on either depending on your facilities power.

Can HVE Systems only be used for cannabinoid separation?

All of our products can be used to do separations on any distillable compounds.

Can you attach output and input pumps?

Yes any input pump whether manufactured by HVE or other manufacturers is compatible with all HVE equipment (universal connections).

Can HVE machines be daisy-chained?

Output pumps can be used to pump any output stream of an HVE WFE into the input of another WFE.

Am I able to see the machine running?

You can see footage of the process on both @highvelocityevaporators and @labsociety on Instagram.

How many liters can the machine produce per hour?

This can vary depending on the quality of your starting material and your goals for final product purity. All HVE systems come with a significantly larger evaporative surface area compared to other machines in the same class: this means it will run faster than other machines while beating them in cost.

Will I need a hot oil re-circulator?

No, our systems are designed with electrothermal heating built-in— eliminating the need for expensive and dangerous hot oil baths.

Will I need LN2 or Dry ice for my cold trap?

Our systems are designed to be used with either type of cold trap, but are designed to easily accommodate electric emergency chillers, which do not require dry ice or liquid nitrogen.
