Dimethyl Ether (DME) is the solution for much more yield with every extraction! Dimethyl Ether is a bi-polar solvent. On the sides of the Dimethyl Ether molecule exist the Methyl-groups, which have the same extraction ability as the butane molecule. The big difference is made by the presence of the Oxygen atom in the middle of the molecule, which gives D.M.E. the ability to connect to both polar and a-polar compounds. Being able to build bridges with Hydrogen Atoms in other molecules enhances the extraction capacity and makes Dexso D.M.E. a superior extraction solvent for the best essential oil extractions. Simply a happy end for every extraction!
Important information: It is advised not to use Dimethyl Ether in extractors made of plastic, PVC or rubber, or containing parts of these materials in contact with the solvent.
Dexso D.M.E. contains pure Dimethyl Ether. It is used as an extraction solvent in the food industry and for several purposes in the medicinal industry. It is non toxic, non carcinogenic and it is harmless for the environment.
Dexso D.M.E. contains 99.99% pure Dimethyl Ether. Dimethyl Ether is an absolutely non-toxic, organic gas and even the 0.01% impurities are non toxic and neutral in taste! By law, flammable gasses have to have a recognisable smell. DME has a specific recognisable but soft smell; it doesn’t need smelling additives like butane does. Being 99.99% pure, and completely additives free, assures that Dexso is the purest solvent on the market.
Due to the molecular structure, the explosion point of Dexso is much higher than the explosion point of petroleum based solvents, like butane. This preserves more safety during the process. Safety information can be found on www.dexso.com.
Due to the structure of the Dimethyl Ether molecule, Dexso is able to extract the compounds easier and deeper in the plant material. This results in a much higher yield and a superior extract that smells exactly like the plant does.
DME dilutes the oils faster than butane. It strips down all the lipophilic compounds, such as terpenes, almost instantly due to its much stronger solubility. This means that with Dexso you need less extraction solvent to make a better extraction.
The boiling or evaporation point of Dexso is much lower than that of butane. This means the extraction solvent evaporates much faster and the purging process is much easier. With Dexso you extract more in the same amount of time.
