What is cannabis oil clarification?
A necessary and key step in producing cannabis oil is the filtration of plant particles and other contaminants. Passing the cannabis extract through a filter system will remove unwanted waxes, fats, and any other small particles, helping maintain the quality of the final product.
Unlike the challenges faced when using traditional vacuum filtration methods like Buchner funnels, our solutions provide a great filtration step to enhance downstream operations.
As cannabis oil production gains momentum, traditional vacuum filtration methods are no longer suitable for larger operations. Our effective cannabis oil clarification solutions have been developed to tackle the disadvantages faced in large-scale production. Our solutions also provide the following cost savings:
Labor savings – reduced filter time and handling when compared to traditional methods
Human mistakes minimized – e.g., breaking beakers that result in product loss.
- Increased product yield – Pall solutions allow for minimal losses through the use of an enclosed assembly.
To meet the extract requirements, Pall worked with cannabis oil producers on a new solution. An enclosed and sanitary system for filtering, SUPRApak technology utilizes a positive pressure push with no temperature increase. Available in surface areas ranging from 0.4 to 8 m2, SUPRApak modules provide the flexibility required for increased batch production.
Other benefits include:
Our SLS – Global Technical Support Group is available to provide you with a broad range of support and process improvement recommendations.
Significantly shortening time to filter waxes and unwanted lipids.
High filtration capacity design, saving valuable production area.
GMP and FCC compliant (subject to final test report), ensuring exceptional quality standards and peace of mind.
Scalable, such that up to 6 SUPRApak modules can be vertically stacked, easily adding more surface area as your production grows.
Modular, such that several grades of media are offered for optimization of your specific fluid.

Our SUPRAdisc II modules are another enclosed sanitary system based on positive pressure enabling quick and easy filtration.
One advantage of the SUPRAdisc II format is its robust construction, making it an ideal option for higher viscous fluids such as winterized CO2 extract. Our SUPRAdisc II modules are available in a 12” and 16” format resulting in surface areas of 1.8 and 5 m2 respectively.
Back flushable for longer filter service
Robust module design that can withstand reverse pressure shocks
Separator plate construction to protect the filter media and facilitate easy module handling
Modular, such that several grades of media are offered, enabling easy optimization for your specific fluid
Our SLS – Global Technical Support Group is available to provide you with support for your specific needs and process improvement recommendations
Shortened active filtration time to filter waxes and unwanted lipids
High filtration capacity in a compact design, saving on space
GMP and FCC compliant (subject to final test report), helping to provide safe, effective products
