An Oregon-based company was looking to become a fully compliant cannabis testing and extraction facility, and called on Erlab to deliver a quick, easy way to turn its newly acquired facility into a safe lab space

The company uses full spectrum and terp testing, as well as decarboxylation THC/CBD percentages. Their main products include BHO Shatter, BHO Distillate and Rosin. A new, larger warehouse was purchased and they wanted to be completely operational in just a few months.
The new facility was large enough to house the small start-up company, all of the equipment needed and room for growth. However, the space they occupy is connected to other suites and nuisance odours could be a concern. Furthermore, the building could not support the installation of the additional ductwork needed for traditional fume hoods. Because the distillate lab would be a converted office space located on the second floor of a shared building, turning it into a lab presented a unique set of challenges:
Erlab was able to provide a Filtration Ecosystem to convert the challenging space into a safe distillate lab and eliminate nuisance odours, both in the lab and throughout the building. The Filtration Ecosystem chosen for their lab is built with the following products that work together to keep the user safe and air in the lab clean:
One plus one equals three. By using Erlab’s products together to capture unwanted or hazardous fumes at the source, there is now a safe, clean, flexible and energy efficient lab space — exactly what they wanted.
The upshot of the project was that company’s equipment now easily fits into a converted space and can be disassembled for any future moves or facility upgrades.
The simple set-up meant that the business could be fully operational in a shorter amount of time, reducing construction and operational costs. And, perhaps most importantly, the end users are safe and fully protected from chemical inhalation.
