What types of customers use the CUP-15 extraction system?

We’re focused on customers who want the highest possible throughput out of their equipment.
The small and medium-scale players are our reason for being—and that’s where the market is right now. We believe it’s always going to be a large market segment, and that the artisan manufacturers are the lifeblood of the industry.

In addition to the CUP-15, are you coming out with new tech in 2019?

Yes, we are developing new tech to meet industry needs. If it interests our customers, it interests us.

Why is the market switching to alcohol so quickly?

Three things. It’s cost-effective, has the fastest turnaround time out of all the methods, and it’s compliant. It’s a UL-certified, C1D2, closed loop, non-volatile process for licensed operations.

When can I get a Delta machine? Can I get one immediately?

The entire alcohol extraction equipment industry is facing unattractive wait times because the demand curve shot up very suddenly. The value to customers to move into distillate-based products, and the value specifically for alcohol-based extraction to make those products, has become plain to product manufacturers. Delta is moving as quickly as possible to ramp up production—and will continue to communicate with customers on this vital topic.

Do you have patents filed?

Yes, Delta Separations protects its inventions with IP filings and trade secrets.
