Abstract

The present disclosure relates, according to disclosed embodiments, to a system for extracting an organic compound from a natural source, the system comprising a computer processor operational to control the system; a storage vessel configured to store an extraction gas, the storage vessel comprising a storage vessel outlet in electrical communication with the computer processor; a valve in electrical communication with the computer processor, the valve comprising a valve inlet and a valve outlet, wherein the valve inlet connects to the storage vessel outlet; a dynamic extraction vessel; and a spray evaporation loop system configured to receive a solute from the dynamic extraction vessel, the spray evaporation loop system comprising an injection nozzle in electrical communication with the computer processor, the injection nozzle comprising an injection nozzle inlet connected to the first dynamic extraction vessel outlet; and a cyclonic separator in electrical communication with the computer processor.

Claim(s)

1 . A system for extracting an organic compound from a natural source, the system comprising: (a) a computer processor operational to control the system; (b) a storage vessel configured to store an extraction gas, the storage vessel comprising a storage vessel outlet, wherein the storage vessel is in electrical communication with the computer processor; (c) a valve in electrical communication with the computer processor, the valve comprising a valve inlet and a valve outlet, wherein the valve inlet connects to the storage vessel outlet; (d) a dynamic extraction vessel in electrical communication with the computer processor, the dynamic extraction vessel comprising: (i) a pressure vessel; (ii) an extraction chamber concentrically contained within the pressure vessel; (iii) a perforated drum configured to rotate about a principal axis of the perforated drum, wherein the perforated drum is substantially cylindrical in shape, and wherein the perforated drum is concentrically contained within the extraction chamber; (iv) a drum rotator; (v) a first dynamic extraction vessel inlet connected to the valve outlet; (vi) a first dynamic extraction vessel outlet; (vii) a sensor for monitoring the extraction process; and (viii) a natural source receptacle configured to receive the natural source; and (e) a spray evaporation loop system in electrical communication with the computer processor and configured to receive a solute from the dynamic extraction vessel, the spray evaporation loop system comprising: (i) an injection nozzle, the injection nozzle comprising an injection nozzle inlet connected to the first dynamic extraction vessel outlet; (ii) a cyclonic separator in electrical communication with the computer processor.;
28 . A method for extracting an organic compound from a natural source, the method comprising: (a) charging a storage vessel with at least two extraction gases; (b) premixing the at least two extraction gases to form a premixed extraction gas; (c) combining the premixed extraction gas with the natural source to form an extraction mixture in a dynamic extraction vessel, wherein the dynamic extraction vessel comprises: (i) a pressure vessel; (ii) an extraction chamber concentrically contained within the pressure vessel; (iii) a perforated drum configured to rotate about a principal axis of the perforated drum, wherein the perforated drum is substantially cylindrical in shape, and wherein the perforated drum is concentrically contained within the extraction chamber; (iv) a drum rotator; (v) a first dynamic extraction vessel inlet; (vi) a first dynamic extraction vessel outlet; (vii) a sensor for monitoring the extraction process; and (viii) a natural source receptacle configured to receive the natural source; (d) rotating the perforated drum containing the extraction mixture to form a spent natural source and a solute, wherein the solute comprises an organic compound and at least a portion of the premixed extraction gas; (e) separating the solute from the spent natural source to form a separated solute and a separated spent natural source; (f) recovering at least a portion of the extraction gas from the separated solute to form a recovered extraction gas and a dried organic compound, wherein the dried organic compound is substantially free of the extraction gas; and (g) recycling the recovered extraction gas to form a recycled extraction gas.
