DISTILLATION PROCESS

according to the European standards

Verdus BioHerbs Company has made a substantial investment in distilling equipment that has been designed according to the European standards for distillers.
Our distillery follows the steam distillation process. This method is accomplished using dehumidified, dry steam that passes through the distiller. Even the slightest amount of humidity in the distillation facility can cause damaging oxidation of the essential oil compounds.

Throughout the process, our distillers take into consideration the speed of steam being applied, its pressure, as well as the supply of steam, all variables that can affect the final distilled product. Because our distillation process is supervised under such rigorous standards, we avoid not only spoilage of quality but also any loss in final quantity of extract.

LOADING AND PRESSING THE PLANT MATERIAL

The process begins before the insertion of the plant material into the distiller. Initially the plant material is transported with conveyor belts and inserted into the distiller by a rotating hopper to distribute it properly. The plant material is then compressed with the help of a mechanical press to ensure the proper utilization and distribution of the whole plant product inside the distiller, allowing the dry steam to pass properly. An advantage of this automated process is the reduction of the raw material’s stay-time in the loading area (the quality of the plant does not degrade).

DISTILLATION PROCESS

Our distillery follows the dry steam distillation method, in which steam is generated in a steam boiler and then inserted through the plant material.

We have 8 10,000lt dry steam distillers made of Inox 316. Each distiller is equipped with a humidity elimination system to maintain the good quality of the incoming steam, contributing to the better quality of the produced essential oils.

The mechanical equipment that frames the distillers is the most modern and suitable for the excellent quality of the essential oils produced.

QUALITY CONTROL

The process is carried out under the strict supervision of qualified personnel. A number of parameters are taken into account such as steam velocity, pressure and supply to the distiller, in order to avoid possible deterioration in quality as well as losses in the final quality of the distillate.
