From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Upgrade Extractor is a consumable that removes all upgrades and all infusions 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 will be account bound after the extraction of the upgrade.“
Double-click to consume.
This tool will remove the upgrades from any item, without destroying either the upgrade or the item.
