I have acquired a vessel that is rated for 6000psi. And I understand the concept that heat and pressure turns certain gasses into a supercritical liquid that acts as a solvent for the plant matter I load into the vessel.
however, I am loading it with 50/50 dry ice to plant matter and including everclear.. but the oil I am getting out is quite dark and looks nothing like the nice yellow or amber Co2 wax I have seen before. I have been told that you have to use Co-solvents to achieve these nice colors. but I really do not want to create an oil derived from chemical solvents.
the product I get from this vessel is a nice oil that I can roll up into a taffy form, but the color is very dark. it isnt to sticky to work with, but definately a warm taffy consistency. it is however VERY FINE and alot of people have loved the effect. I just want to know how to use this vessel to make a nice lighter colored wax.. using no butane, or lighter fluid or any of that garbage.
nope nothing you got som pics i can probably help you but im kind rather inclined not to believe. normally a machine that preforms that function cost about 10g+
i was under the impression you not use solvents in a co2 machine.
it isnt a machine.. it is a vessel. the vessel is a stainless steel pressure cylinder rated at 6000psi and built by robins aviation.. there is a series of high pressure fittings.. a pressure gauge.. heater ring..and two out valves on the bottom. this equipment pieced together is definately pricey for sure.. but the eden labs equivilent of what I have made here is about 60k.. Im not a little kid, so please be more inclined to actually believe.
the issue I am having is not how to derive oil from the vessel. the oil that comes out is very nice.. I load the vessel with dry ice and plant matter.. the higher the psi the higher the yield.. but premium product is lower psi..
what I am trying to figure out is how to get a nice color wax without using a nasty co-solvent..
hmm this sounds odd, and i understand what your saying now, you are using ever clear whats the proof? you may want to order some 99% alcohol. but im not sure are you sure your not getting any plant materiel in your mix?
hmm that is odd your shit should be golden from what i understand about these machines, your gonna have to look hard to find some one who know about this shit im at a loss i would have to have a machine in front of mr to figure it out im more of a hands on person.
dude your gonna have to give me a pic or something if you expect me to help honestly your out of my league already if you have one, but i can say this watched several videos on extractions and
a) there are no simple DIY devices that can easily preform the extractions
B) a lot of extractions i saw the contents were held under pressure for a long period of time
C) did not find any vessels that really fit you description other than one DIY one that needed a lot of heat to function.
dont know what your working with i would contact the manufacturer. and like i said on you other thread just say your extracting lavender/oils.
because if you lived in CA.. Id just have you come check it out... UPDATE: we pulled out some BOMB oil today... now working on quantity
