THC/CBD Extraction

Yamada Pumps for CBD Extraction

Yamada AODD Pumps offer a reliable, versatile, and safe solution for the transfer of liquids and solvents in the CBD industry, making them a popular choice for many manufacturers.  

Key reasons why double diaphragm pumps are favored in THC extraction applications:

  1. Material Compatibility: Double diaphragm pumps are available in various materials, including stainless steel and other chemically resistant materials, making them suitable for handling solvents and cannabis extracts.
  2. Gentle Handling: These pumps provide gentle and low-shear fluid transfer, which helps preserve the quality and potency of the THC extract.
  3. Self-Priming: Double diaphragm pumps are self-priming, meaning they can start pumping without needing to be manually filled with the liquid, which improves operational efficiency.
  4. Versatility: Double diaphragm pumps can handle a wide range of viscosities, making them suitable for various stages of the THC extraction process.
  5. Safety: Double diaphragm pumps are designed with safety features, including leak-free operation and dry-run capabilities, which are essential in handling flammable solvents safely.

AODD pumps are used at various stages of the installation process within the CBD industry, depending on the specific application and requirements. Here are some examples:

  • Solvent Transfer: In THC extraction processes, solvents like ethanol, butane, or supercritical CO2 are used to dissolve the THC and other cannabinoids from the cannabis plant material. Double diaphragm pumps can efficiently and safely transfer these solvents between different stages of the extraction process, such as from storage tanks to extraction vessels.
  • Liquid Recovery: After the extraction process, it is essential to recover the solvents from the extracted solution to obtain the desired THC concentrate. Double diaphragm pumps can handle the transfer of the solvent-rich solution to a recovery system, where the solvent is separated and collected for reuse.
  • Filtration: Double diaphragm pumps can be used to pump the extracted solution through filtration systems to remove any remaining plant material or impurities, resulting in a cleaner and purer THC extract.
  • Decarboxylation: Some THC extracts require decarboxylation, a process that activates the cannabinoids by heating the extract. Double diaphragm pumps can pump the extract into decarboxylation ovens or chambers for this purpose.
  • Winterization: Winterization is a process used to remove undesirable waxes and lipids from the THC extract. Double diaphragm pumps can facilitate the transfer of the extracted solution to the winterization process.
  • Evaporation and Distillation: After the extraction and purification steps, double diaphragm pumps can be utilized to transfer the THC-rich solution to evaporation and distillation equipment for further concentration and refinement.
  • Product Filling: Once the THC extract is ready, it may be used to fill vape cartridges, tincture bottles, or other products. Double diaphragm pumps can be employed to pump the concentrated extract into the packaging containers.


    • Gentle Extraction: use of compressed air to gently move the fluid, which reduces the risk of damage to the sensitive cannabinoids and terpenese present in CBD oil.
    • Flexibility : can handle a wide range of viscosities and temperatures (-70F), making them suitable for a variety of CBD oil extraction purposes. 
    • Easy to Maintain: have a simple design that makes them easy to maintain, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
    • Safe with Solvents: designed to handle a variety of solvents used in CBD oil extraction, making them safe and relialble choice.
    • Cost-Effective: requiring minimal maintenance and have a long lifespan, saving money in the long run.
