Meet the EXTRACTION FINDER, featuring a brand new adapter, built for extraction.
The EXTRACTION FINDER is Arometrix’s real-time molecular monitoring system for botanical extraction. This new model serves ethanol, butane, and several other types of extractions. Not currently approved for use with propane or CO2 extractions.
This patent-pending technology is essential for consistently maximizing the amount of extracted compounds within a given plant material. Forget the old ways of relying on guesswork, eyesight, or fixed recipes alone – now you can optimize extraction yield and quality with this unique approach to process monitoring. The real-time data provided by the EXTRACTION FINDER enables users to establish more effective standard operating procedures (SOPs), reduce undesirables in extracts, and optimize extraction efficiency.
DON’T JUST DO YOUR PROCESS. KNOW YOUR PROCESS.
Features & Details
The (Ultra-Sensitive) Sensor
Housed and enclosed by the AMP Adapter
Connects and transmits to the pole-mounted, high-quality display
Plug and play – instantaneously analyze the mixture flowing through the processing machine
The ultra-sensitive sensor has a new filter that allows it to be significantly more sensitive than our original FRACTION FINDER sensor.

The Digital Display
Tablet-sized display mounts directly onto a lab pole
Connects and interprets the wavelength information from the sensor
Touch-screen interface displays real-time molecular information about the contents of your fraction/solution throughout the process
Compatible with all Arometrix sensor technology
Includes long wiring, allowing the digital display to be easily placed outside of hazardous environments.
The High-Quality Software
Molecular Selection – Select from a growing list of key molecules, including CBD; see full list here
Intensity Values – Track as molecular intensity levels increase and decrease throughout the process
Data Logging – Record and export run data for traceability
Software Updates – Upgrade to software releases easily from the field.
Lack of objectivity during extraction processes
The purpose of extraction processes, regardless of solvent used, is essentially to introduce a solvent to the biomass that will bind to, strip, and help obtain as much of the desirable compounds as possible. Thus, ideally, the extraction process should end as soon as all Cannabinoids have been extracted from the plant matter. But, how do you know when this has happened?
Before the EXTRACTION FINDER, extractors relied on experience and eyesight. While these are helpful techniques that should be utilized during the process, they should not be solely relied upon since they are very subjective. Subjective monitoring is unscalable, inconsistent, and imprecise.
What is the effect of this lack of molecular monitoring during extraction? Batches that are NOT extracted for the appropriate amount of time, resulting in either low yields or low potency.
Finally, an end in sight for extraction processes
With our new EXTRACTION FINDER, Arometrix is completely revolutionizing botanical extraction. By tracking molecular levels, and how they increase or decrease over time, we give power to the processor and a path to greater extraction efficiency. Avoid over or under-extracting, and optimize yield, potency, and time.
The primary application for the EXTRACTION FINDER is on the extraction process to help operators determine when the extraction is complete in the extraction separator. However, the unit can be installed in-line just about anywhere where there are 1.5” or 2” sanitary flange tri-clamp connections. Multiple units can be placed at multiple points of the extraction design, before and/or after the following locations: Initial soaking, Extraction Separator, Winterization & Filtration, Color remediation column, and/or Solvent evaporation.
