— In-game description

Upgrade Extractor is a consumable item that removes all upgrade components, including infusions and enrichments, from a single piece of equipment. The Extractor also works on most soulbound items, including those that cannot be salvaged or sold. Upgrades returned will be unbound unless they were originally bound. When extracting upgrades from tradeable equipment, the equipment become account bound after the extraction of the upgrade. Upgrade extractors cannot be used on legendary equipment, which already allows swapping upgrade components freely.

The mouse-over text correctly states that this "tool will remove the upgrades from any item," while the extraction window incorrectly states that it "[s]eparates one upgrade component..."
