Our vacuum ovens are purpose-built to perform degassing / purging of light hydrocarbon solvents. Using the technique of cold boiling, the oven applies a gentle heat under reduced pressure conditions to expedite solvent degassing while simultaneously preserving color, aroma, and overall solute quality. We’ve applied our extensive vacuum expertise and industry experience to produce a series of ovens designed exactly for your needs: low consumption, high-throughput, and reliable operation.
At Best Value Vac, we make every effort to provide oven performance capabilities in a standardized format. We’re not interested in juking our stats to make a sale. Instead, our goal is to provide quality, transparent production capabilities that meet the demands of our professional customers.

CAPACITY AND THROUGHPUT PLANNING
Oven capacity requirements vary widely by the producer. We wanted to create a method to assist in determining the best oven match for your operation, based on a few of the parameters of your extraction and of your desired purge. We based this formula on an expected extraction yield of 25%, with an extract-density of 1 g/in2. Using the following variables, this formula is designed to provide an estimate of your required shelving capacity:
- Size = Extraction Batch Size (lbs.)
- Number = Runs per 24h Period
- Purge = Your desired purging duration (hours)
Area Required (ft2) = [(Size) * (Number) * (Purge+1)] / 122
Area Required (in2) = (Size) * (Number) * (Purge+1) * 1.18
