1/2 Gallon Strictly Medicinal Tincture Press (Lab Press), Stainless Steel Herb Contact Surfaces, Spring-Loaded Return

$1,850.00 $1,725.00

This press comes complete with an all-new solid base and stainless perforated cylinder.  Unbreakable and truly heavy-duty, the press features all stainless-steel herb contact surfaces, silent automatic return, custom inner pan, fingertip adjustment, mirror finish, takes little effort to press (a very smooth action), and has the ability to squeeze out every last drop of liquid.  This is the nicest mid-size tincture press on the market. Handmade in Williams, Oregon, America.

Features of the 1/2 gallon tincture press:

• Heavy steel construction, unbreakable, with a hard finish

• All stainless steel herb contact surfaces, including custom piston and pressing pans.  Piston is precisely turned and mirror-finish as in photo

New bulked-up platen with a bolt-less, form-fitted, stainless-steel juncture to the jack.  Sturdy, steady and perfectly plumb.

New inner perforated cylinder assembly is now stock–basically a precision-fit, perforated stainless steel basket on a custom stainless-steel disc.  This assembly cannot get stuck, reduces pressing cloth wear and is easily disassembled for cleaning–really sweet! *  check below for more specs

Jacks have been retooled with a round stainless toggle for finger-tight lockdown and letdown–no need to use the handle to let down the press.

Handle is now mirror-finish stainless stock, milled and plugged in our shop.

• Heavy duty 2 speed fast lift 6-ton hydraulic jack squeezes out every last drop

• Automatic spring-loaded return, springs attached with high-quality stainless steel rings milled in our shop.

3 inch HDPE pressing block included

• 2 Tygon hoses and 2 pressing cloths included free of charge

The Strictly Medicinal Tincture Press, available in 1/2 gallon size only.

Hand-squeezing medicinal herb tinctures and herb infused oils is OK for starters, but most people who have tried this soon find the method somewhat wasteful. The hydraulic tincture press saves time and labor while increasing yields by as much as 40%. Herbs, alcohol and organic olive oil can be quite expensive, and a high quality tincture press pays for itself in short order by maximizing returns of all these precious substances. Furthermore, the higher pressures obtained in the tincture press result in better extraction of medicinal constituents from the herbs, resulting in products of increased strength and efficacy.

“In over two decades in the herb industry I have had the opportunity to press out thousands of herbal extracts, using all kinds and sizes of tincture presses. The Strictly Medicinal Tincture Press is manufactured according to my exact specifications, and it is the sweetest, cleanest, most efficient midsize press I have ever operated. The spring-loaded return is a breeze. Nowadays I make extracts for family and friends, and I find that this tincture press perfectly fits my needs—big enough to do gallons of echinacea, but small enough to do a scant quart of valerian.” –Richo

*More info on the perforated inner cylinder with base (2-piece) for Strictly Medicinal Lab Press, which is now included with each press:

Manufactured from 100% stainless steel, this perforated cylinder and custom base is our new invention, affording quick and efficient pressing of herbal tinctures and oils. This new assembly may be used to replace the perforated pan that came with your press, and will be standard equipment on our new line of upgraded tincture presses (to be released in 2019).

The advantages:
1) more holes giving increased surface area for liquid dispersal
2) thicker steel
3) softer bag contact surfaces, reducing bag wear
4) easy to clean
5) easy to disassemble and free stuck bags

Specifications:

Weighs 2.75 lbs, assembled
Diameter 4 7/8 inches (12.2 cm)
Height 7 1/8 inches (18 cm)
Holes 3/8 inches (5 mm)

Directions for use:  Snap the perforated cylinder to the stainless steel base and place inside the outer pan.  Put the pressing bag (sold separately) inside the perforated cylinder, pour in the macerating tincture, fold over the top of the bag, and press up.  Liquid will flow from inside the bag to the outer pan, out the spout to your collection container.  Easy action, efficient production, and easy to clean!

    How much does a 3rd hose and a 3rd bag cost? Are shipping costs included in this price?

      Hoses are cleaned by running soapy water through them, then rinsing with clear water. Bags and hoses are available separately. Here’s a link https://strictlymedicinalseeds.com/product/half-gallon-pressing-bag/

      Hi Lindsey, We used to make the 1 gallon capacity but found that the yield was less efficient than with the smaller pans (which get more PSI). We will e-mail you when the presses are again complete and ready to sell.

      The press doesn’t make oils. Essential oils are made with a distiller which this is not. Oil infusions (e.g. calendulated oil) can however be easily pressed out with this tincture press.

      Is it super loud? Curious, I use a hand crank cider press currently and love it but I would like to upscale

      Hi Chloe, Our press is silent except for the slight swoosh of the jack handle pumping and an occasional fizz of fluids escaping under pressure. It would be a nice upgrade from a cider press. cheers, richo

    • Steve De Chellis

      Howdy. Can this press be used for pressing out hazelnut oil? Other nuts and seeds? Would I have to grind them first? What other uses can I get out of this press besides tinctures?? Thank you!

      hi steve, the press does not express oil from seeds, it can’t do that, nor does it produce essential oils. it is for pressing out juice from any ground herbs or fruits, also for pressing out infused oils or tinctures. richo
