The extraction efficiency of the traditional Chinese medicine extraction tank is not high, is there any way to improve it?
The function of the traditional Chinese medicine extraction tank is to extract the essence of traditional Chinese medicine. It has the characteristics of short extraction time, high utilization rate, and greatly improves the extraction rate of effective ingredients of traditional Chinese medicine. It can also automate many factors that were not easily controlled by humans in the past.
At present, traditional Chinese medicine extraction tanks are widely used in the medical field, which has played an important role in improving the quality of pharmaceutical products, promoting the automation of the production process and the standardization of product quality.
However, the author also understands that the existing extraction tanks on the market still have some shortcomings. For example, the extracted medicinal materials need to be taken out manually, which is very time-consuming, and there are problems such as high loss rate of volatile active ingredients during extraction, high labor intensity of workers, low degree of automation, and difficulty in controlling sanitary conditions. In addition, some users have reported that some extraction tanks have problems such as uneven heating, poor extraction effect and quality, and high energy consumption and high production costs due to the unsatisfactory cooling effect of steam in the circulation process.
In recent years, with the increase in labor costs and the continuous advancement of energy conservation and environmental protection policies, how to improve the extraction efficiency of traditional Chinese medicine extraction tanks to reduce energy consumption and costs has become a problem for many traditional Chinese medicine companies. So, is there a way to improve the efficiency of the Chinese medicine extraction tank?
Some manufacturers of traditional Chinese medicine extraction tanks said that improving the efficiency of traditional Chinese medicine extraction can be tried in several ways. First, for different solvents, the medicinal materials are crushed into different sizes, such as cutting into large particle size when using water, and crushing into 80-120 mesh size when using ethanol.
Second, within a certain period of time, the amount of extraction is proportional to the extraction time. Different extraction times can be set for different medicinal materials' firmness and difficulty of extraction, so as to improve the efficiency of extraction.
Third, control the extraction temperature. Too low temperature is not conducive to the dissolution and diffusion of substances. Too high temperature may damage the active ingredients and increase impurities. Therefore, the extraction temperature needs to be reasonably controlled.
Some manufacturers also pointed out that by optimizing and improving the structure of the equipment, the extraction efficiency of the traditional Chinese medicine extraction tank can also be further improved, saving costs for users.
It is reported that by improving the structure of the traditional Chinese medicine extraction tank, the manufacturer has made up for the shortcomings of the existing technology of small filter area, long heating time and unevenness, and achieved the effect of increasing heat transfer efficiency, shortening heating time and ensuring uniform heating. It has a filter area. Adjustable advantages.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that if the production process of the traditional Chinese medicine extraction equipment is not well matched with the equipment, problems such as unstable product quality and large consumption of raw materials will also occur in the production process. Therefore, a good combination of equipment and production technology, as well as the correct use of equipment by operators, are also important factors to improve quality and efficiency.
The industry believes that in the process of extracting traditional Chinese medicine, the quality of traditional Chinese medicine extraction equipment and the level of technical content directly affect the quality of traditional Chinese medicine extraction. Therefore, while the equipment achieves energy saving and high efficiency, the quality of the extracted products also needs to be guaranteed. In recent years, with the continuous advancement of favorable policies, my country's traditional Chinese medicine industry has continued to develop, and Chinese medicine extraction equipment will also usher in opportunities. In this context, while focusing on efficiency and quality, equipment manufacturers also need to continue to strengthen R&D investment, improve innovation capabilities, and thereby enhance market competitiveness.
