CBG Biotech Success Stories

Manufacturers & Researchers Worldwide Benefit From CBG's Solvent Distillation Systems

Our laboratory and industrial solvent distillation systems and stills have been proven to bring:

  • Solvent sustainability to labs and manufacturing facilities: Our solvent distillation systems and stills conserve resources while helping protect the environment.
  • Automation and efficiencies to various industrial and laboratory operations: Each CBG unit can be programmed to run absent of human intervention, which reduces the amount of physical labor required by your staff and supports simplified multitasking.
  • Safety to solvent distillation processes: All of our solvent distillation systems and stills are approved to meet stringent UL standards for distillation equipment; they're closed-loop systems that are designed to conceal harmful vapors and prevent potentially hazardous solvents from coming into contact with your personnel.
  • Cost savings to labs and industrial facilities: Our customers substantially reduce how much they spend on solvent purchases, waste disposal, compliance, labor and more.
