If you’re looking for a large batch, the EtOH Pro has a 1-gallon capacity. These easy-to-use extraction machines work under vacuum at low temperatures to pull all the benefits from your botanicals to create high quality concentrates, gummies, bath bombs, and so many other creations.
SOURCE Turbo is the only at-home extraction appliance in the world that is made simple, smart, safe, and efficient for all your extraction needs. The SOURCE Turbo makes it easy for you to quickly and safely create botanical oils and concentrates in the comfort of your own home.
You cannot do better than the ExtractCraft Source Turbo Extractor for herbal extractions. The ExtractCraft Source Turbo allows you to make high-quality oil and concentrate extractions at home, simplifying the process and dramatically limiting costs. Whether you are creating extractions for at-home personal use or small-batch production, it will make your process more time-efficient and user-friendly.
The Source Turbo is the only at-home extraction appliance in the world that is simple, smart, safe, and versatile enough for all your botanical extraction needs. No other method can offer the ease-of-use, quality of craftsmanship, high level of safety, and carefully finished products that you can create with the ExtractCraft Source Turbo Extractor.
Many people are simply accustomed to purchasing pre-made extracted products (whether they are butters, honeys, oils, or other goods). Those who create their own oils and concentrates may do so in a fairly rough process, with limited ability to calibrate for precision control. If this describes you, consider a home extractor. It will allow you to save substantially on costs while also allowing you to choose when, how, and in what quantity to extract. Ultimately, this will give you a high degree of control while enabling you to be more self-reliant in your consumption choices.
You can further save on costs and say goodbye to waste, as the Source Turbo Extractor recovers 95% of the ethanol from the extraction process for re-use. And because it is under vacuum during this process, the boiling point of ethanol is much lower, so the extraction can happen at low temperatures (only 105-degrees Fahrenheit), thereby preserving desirable plant components like terpenes and flavonoids.
With your own Source Turbo, an extensive array of possible extractions are at your fingertips. Everything from oils for baked goods to gummies and candies, dressings, salves and lotions, and much more can be whipped up in no time. You’ll be able to broadly experiment and determine your ultimate preferences when it comes to extractions.
The high precision of the Source Turbo is one of the prime features that stands out. With a Source Turbo extractor, you can easily monitor remaining time, temperatures, vacuum level, and more, to ensure careful control and an exceptional degree of safety throughout the extraction process.
Ethanol is a better, safer way to draw out flavors and aromas found in botanical oils and concentrates. Unlike other extraction methods, ethanol extractions are cost-friendly and safe from the worry of dangerous combustion.
Ethanol extractions are one of the safest and cleanest forms of extraction possible. This extraction method uses high-proof grain alcohol as a solvent and can be recirculated around the plant material multiple times, allowing for minimal toxicity and optimal botanical oil extraction.
The Source Turbo Extractor is the premier device to use when creating oils, butters, and other products at home. You can significantly expand your extraction possibilities while drastically cutting costs in the process, making it a fantastic choice for both novices and experts alike.

Q: What are botanical oils and concentrates?
A: Botanical oil is what gives a plant its primary characteristics and is used as perfume or flavoring. Concentrates are the resulting form of botanical oils when reduced to a more strong and potent form.
Q: From what botanical can oils and concentrates be extracted?
A: Your imagination is the only limit. You can use any single or combination of botanicals. Whether you’re using our products at home or as part of your business, Experiment and create your own unique combinations, or view some of our recipes for inspiration.
Q: How do I prepare botanicals for extraction?
A: Extraction preparation is easy as 1, 2, 3:
Q: What solvent is used?
A: We recommend using food-grade, grain alcohol of 190-proof and 95% alcohol.
Q: How long does the extraction process take?
A: The length of time the extraction process takes depends on how much “tea” is placed in the reservoir cup. If the reservoir cup is full, the process takes about 4 hours. If it’s half full, it takes about 2 hours. Quite often you only need to fill the reservoir half way.
Q: What is the green button and why does it flash?
A: The green button tells you when it is ready for action by glowing steady green. One flash indicates the extraction process has been initiated in normal mode, and two slow flashes are for Turbo mode. Three quick flashes indicate the extraction process has been stopped. The light will flash once every 10 seconds to indicate it is running. If the green button isn’t illuminated, then the SOURCE Turbo is not getting power.
Q: What is the silver screw under the green button?
A: The silver screw is a vacuum release valve. When it is screwed to the left, the valve is open and allows air into the vacuum chamber. When it is screwed to the right, the valve is closed and not allowing air to pass through. The screw should be turned all the way to the right when the SOURCE Turbo extractor is running. When finished, unscrew to the left to release pressure to remove the lid.
Q: how does the lid stay on?
A: When the SOURCE Turbo is in operation, the vacuum creates negative pressure on the inside of the unit exerting hundreds of pounds of force downward to hold the lid in place.
Q: Is the SOURCE Turbo nosiy?
A: The limited noise only occurs when the vacuum pump is running. When first turned on the pump will run until it reaches full vacuum. Then the vacuum pump will only switch on occasionally for a brief time to reestablish the full vacuum.
Q: What is that ticking sound when the machine is running?
A: The ticking sound during operation is normal. It’s simply the heat controller.
Q: Is the SOURCRE Turbo smell proof?
A: There are limited to no odors emanating from the SOURCE Turbo during operation. When the vacuum pump runs to adjust the internal pressure limited fumes may escape, but not much if at all.
Q: Is the SOURCRE Turbo safe?
A: The SOURCE Turbo is the only extraction appliance that is UL Approved in the USA and Canada. It has many safety precautions built into it. The SOURCE Turbo operates well below the ignition temperature of alcohol under a vacuum and is contained in a vacuum where no air is present. We advise caution when handling the alcohol and recommend keeping it well away from any kind of flame or ignition source.
Q: What is the altitude setting?
A: Our advanced technology allows for setting the local altitude where the EtOH Pro will be operated to ensure uniform performance wherever you are.
Q: How do I start the extraction process?
A: ou can start the SOURCE Turbo in Normal mode by pushing the green button once or by using the mobile app. When starting, the green button will flash once to confirm the process starting in Normal mode. Using the app is as easy as pushing the “Start Process” button.
Q: How do I start the Turbo mode?
A: Start Turbo mode by pushing and holding the green button for a full 3 to 4 seconds, then releasing. The green button will flash slowly twice to confirm the process starting in Turbo mode. Turbo mode cannot be started using the app.
Q: What's the difference between Normal and Turbo modes?
A: Normal mode is the mode for running a typical extraction. It takes approximately 4 hours to complete a full run with minimal pump activity. Turbo mode doubles the processing speed but also significantly increases pump activity. Both modes work at the same internal operating temperature range.
Q: How do I stop the unit?
A: The Source will stop once it satisfies the preset 2-hour limit, or you can manually stop it mid-process two ways:
Q: What if I forget and leave it running?
A: The unit has a maximum 120-minute automatic shutoff feature.
Q: How does the mobile app work?
A: The mobile app will work on android or iOS mobile devices via Bluetooth. It allows you to adjust time, temperature, and pressure.
Q: How do I clean my extraction machine?
A: Hand washing is recommended for all removable parts. Removable parts include the lid, rubber rim, reservoir cup, glass collector, and rubber base. The base where the electronics are housed must not be put into water at any time. To clean the base, gently wipe with a damp towel.
