Traditionally, the extraction process has been more of an art, where technicians rely on intuition, extract color, past experience, and other subjective techniques to change extraction parameters. This is an inefficient way to develop, optimize, or validate an extraction process.
Arometrix’s patented solution is the EXTRACTION FINDER, a revolutionary in-line spectroscopic analyzer designed to scientifically measure the levels of Cannabinoids, Chlorophyll, and Lipids/Fats in the fluid flowing in real-time during the actual extraction process.

Extraction laboratory technicians and managers can utilize this real-time molecular data to inform key process decisions, such as determining when the initial extraction is over. With the EXTRACTION FINDER, extraction technicians can scientifically track solvent saturation of active molecules, as well as undesirable compounds, to continuously improve extraction efficiency.
Clean in Place (CIP) for Any Extractor
DON’T JUST DO YOUR PROCESS. KNOW YOUR PROCESS.
Extraction Finder Sensor
Key Software Features
The AROMETRIX technology utilizes a principle known as fluorescence spectroscopy, a branch of science concerned with measuring molecules based on how they interact with light. The technology uses a spectrum of wavelengths over time to determine the relative purity of oils flowing through a glass condenser or sight glass. This technique paves the way for precision and repeatability, which will yield a more consistent product over time.

Can this just be hooked up to any extraction system?
Yes! The EXTRACTION FINDER was designed to be highly practical. The enclosed sensor can be mounted to just about any Cannabis or Hemp extraction system via universal tri-clamp fittings in-line. The unit can even be used in distillation, chromatography, and reactors that utilize standard tri-clamp fittings.
What solvents is this compatible with?
The product can be utilized in extractions that utilize the following solvents: Butane, Ethanol, Heptane, Hexane, Isopropanol, Methanol, Pentane, Propane, and Water.
Where should I install this and how will I use the readings?
That depends on the type of extraction and your process goals. Please refer to the “Key Applications” section above. Feel free to contact us to chat further!
