Small Price. Huge Performance.

-40°C in 8 minutes. -65°C in 15 minites.

1 Minute Fill/Drain Time.

The L-80 Lite is the younger brother to the L-80 Max. You get the same great performance at a much lower price. Say what?! How is the possible? We completely redesigned the L-80 Lite to reduce components. We shrunk the tank to hold 30 gallons. The L-80 Lite is the first chiller to offer a modular design. This allows you to field-upgrade the machine as you grow and need more features.

Combined with powerful Cryometrix Liquid Nitrogen Technology, this patented liquid chilling technology enables accurate, extremely fast, and ultra-cold temperatures.

The L-80 Lite circulates liquid nitrogen within its patented chamber design, enabling it to rapidly chill ethanol down to temperature as low as -80°C. Designed for ease-of-use, with just a button press and the turn of a lever, the L-80 can fill, chill, or drain the ethanol.

Cryometrix Technology doesn’t require a mechanical compressors, dramatically reducing energy costs and floor space. Zero heat is exhausted to the room, removing the need for expensive HVAC systems. Mechanical compressors also require lots of upkeep and maintenance. The L-80 avoids all of this with simple and robust LN2 technology which will give you the same high performance day in and day out regardless of the outside temperature and humidity.

With a small 33” x 33” footprint, the L-80 Lite proves that size does matter in your C1D2 room. The L-80 Lite is designed to be placed side by side and back to back, so as you grow, you can easily expand your chilling capacity.

Featuring patent-pending technology, the L-80 Lite is specifically designed to work with liquids like ethanol for CBD extraction and winterization. Use our L-80 Lite as a cannabinoid chiller for your process!

L-80 Lite chillers are also capable with of cooling solvent tanks used for Hydrocarbon extraction. Talk to a Cryometrix representative for more information.

The L-80 Lite is a turn key solution providing all of the key components out of the box. All you need to provide is liquid Nitrogen and then plug our system into the nearest 110V outlet. We provide the insulated holding tank, cryogenic pumps to fill and drain the chilled ethanol.

Applications

CBD Extraction Chiller: A common type of CBD extraction uses ethanol to extract useful cannabinoids. The warmer the ethanol, the more unwanted plant particulates are also extracted. Because of this, chilling the ethanol increases extracted Cannabinoid purity.

CBD Oil Winterization: Oil extracts tend to have plant material intermixed within them after extraction, including CO2 Hemp Extraction. The L-80 Lite proves a powerful tool for extract winterization.

Research: Liquid chillers are typically large, bulky, and expensive, requiring large budgets for any research that required them. The L-80 Lite allows for smaller, sleeker, and cheaper chilling of liquids used for research.

Manufacturing: The L-80 Lite is suited for small operations or large scale industrial production.

Key Features

Automatic Fill Stop: The L-80 Lite will automatically stop pumping from the bulk liquid supply once the top fill level is reached.

Automatic Drain Stop: The L-80 Lite will automatically stop pumping liquid out of the chilling chamber once the low level is reached.

Datalogging: The L-80 Lite constantly logs liquid temperature, LN2 pressure, and pump load.

Food Grade Stainless Steel: The liquid being chilled within the L-80 Lite only comes into contact with food-grade stainless steel.

Zero Workspace Modification

  • The L-80 Lite is small and portable, fitting into any workspace and can be moved with a pallet jack.
  • Running on 110v, the L-80 Lite can plug into common outlets.
  • Zero heat is rejected into the room, so no HVAC is required.

Benefits over Compressor-Based Liquid Chillers

Less Maintenance: Unlike compressor-based chillers which have hundreds of moving parts, the L-80 Lite has only a few moving parts, so very little maintenance is required.

Reduced Electric Power Usage: You will not need to run any power to your building when running our chiller.

Faster Chilling and Better Performance: The low temperature of LN2 enables the L-80 Lite to chill rapidly and to lower temperatures.

Complete Safety

Closed Nitrogen System

  • There is zero contact between LN2 and the operator or product.
  • LN2 storage is simple and completely autonomous.

Unreactive: Nitrogen isn’t flammable or explosive like many refrigerants used in compressor-based technologies.

Easy Cleaning: The 100% stainless steel design is easy to clean without harsh industrial chemicals.

Environment Friendly

Clean Emissions: Cryometrix products only emit nitrogen outside your building, which already makes up over 75% of the Earth’s atmosphere.

Powerful Innovation

Next-Gen Liquid Nitrogen Tech

  • Cryometrix products don’t use traditional mechanical compressors that utilize refrigerants, an example being freon, to produce cold temperatures. These are noisy and use large amounts of electricity.
  • LN2 has a boiling point of -196°C, enabling temperatures as low as -196°C. Most refrigerants have boiling points greater than -100°C, making it difficult for technology that uses them to generate temperatures below that.

Low Energy Usage

  • Cryometrix tech use 7x less electricity than comparable products.
  • LN2 operates on pressure and requires no electricity to function, enabling it to function without power in emergency situations.

Extreme Reliability

  • Cryometrix freezing technology doesn’t require HVAC systems to cool the ambient temperature in order to operate. It can operate in any ambiance and cools the environment around it.
  • There are practically no moving parts in Cryometrix LN2 freezing technology, making it last up to 4 times as long as comparable freezing technology, in addition to requiring hardly any maintenance.

Easily Expandable

  • Cryometrix products consume little electricity, enabling the customer to add additional units to their facility with zero electrical complications.
  • The effective footprint is 16 square feet and little to no space is needed on the sides, easily fitting into any facility.

Extreme Versatility: The L-80 Lite can chill any liquid that can handle the ultra-low temperatures at which it operates.

Cost Efficiency

Space Efficient: The Cryometrix L-80 Lite Solvent Chiller has the smallest footprint for its liquid chilling capability, costing less in floor space and allowing you to fit more units in your current space.

Simple Design: The simple functioning and operation of the L-80 Lite doesn’t require extensive training, reducing labor costs and risks.

Low Energy Costs

  • LN2 technology uses much less electricity than traditional compressor-based technologies.
  • Cryometrix products don’t need energy intensive HVAC systems to operate efficiently.

Greater Throughput: The increased capability of the L-80 Lite allows faster turnaround times and thus greater profits.

Sample Integrity

Closed System: No LN2 is exposed to the sample, maintaining the samples integrity.

Data-Logging: The L-80 Lite automatically tracks temperature and other useful data.

Temperature Uniformity: A pump maintains high flux throughout chilled liquid, maintaining even temperatures throughout.
