The HAL Extraction Booth was designed to create a safe working environment for people extracting plant oils using flammable or hazardous solvents. Each product contains the following safety systems and more:

  • Ventilation to reduce flammable solvent concentrations
  • Active solvent monitoring to warn of hazardous conditions and to control ventilation
  • Explosion-proof  electrical components and fittings
  • Fire-rated door hardware for emergency exiting
  • Emergency lighting

HAL Extraction Booth Systems give you a head start with your compliance program, and with your local fire marshal and code compliance official.
