    Im using a vac it pro and a yellowjacket superevac 6 cfm (read it was one of the toptier pumps to use with vacitpro)... its currently been in vac for over 50 hours and there is still bubbles. When I say bubbles I mean it looks like its been in vac for 4 hours and the muffin just diminished.
    People are FULLY purging in about 24 hours getting "swiss cheese shatter" with nucleation holes meaning its done.. literally no visible bubbles.

    Im more than frustrated EVERYTIME I order new equipment I run into another dilemma like this..... been in vac for over 50 hours. The slab in there is less than 25g. Again, people are fully purging in half the time it takes me.

    Yet im pulling 29.8-9 and oil surface area temp is 103-110f.

    Posting this is my last resort before I contemplate selling all my equipment yet again. Material I ran was some super terpeny Bubblejack sugar leaf. No larf.
    I dont have time to purge less than a zip in 4+days......... ..... ..

    Only "help" I've received is that "I need a stronger pump" yet its rated at 15 microns but taking twice as long than people with 25 micron robinairs.... on the verge of giving up

    What twitch said,
    Age of material matters a lot.
    fresher klippings and kuttings, freeze that skuff if you are building it up to blow a large batch.

    Your equipment is fine, I was under the impression that BHO is purged in a series of purges (half dozen)
    ending in a 12-16 hour purge.

    The temp of the material in the chamber is being kept warm right, how??
    Heating pad, not warm enough IMHO.
    I like electric griddle....

    scorche224 Member

    My material is fine I'm sure, it was chopped no more than 2-3 weeks ago and the trim smelled just like the buds. Using an electric griddle. Going to try and post a few pics if Ican figure out how

    go get your self a laser thermometer to measure all parts of your chamber. sounds like a temp issue. also how thick are you laying it down. i find best to spread a thin layer on parchment paper or some silicon pads also flip it over every 45 minutes or so. with this method im easily purging 70+gs in 12 hours or less

    scorche224 Member

    No bold italics or anything just a blank horizontal line...... have a laser temp gun. Sways between 102-110. I dont believe in a lot of agitation im always shooting for clarity shatter.

    DO3SHA Well-Known Member

    flipping it over isnt really aggitating it, maybe folding it into eachother would be aggitation, when these guys are getting that clear clarity they are most likely winterizing with ethanol alcohol (ethyl alcohol)

    No knowledge of your dissy but you'r pump is a good one.

    I'm with Dog, you aren't supposed to pull one vacuum for 50 hours you pull several vacuums over an evening or a day based on size.

    Also the thinner you lay it out the faster it will purge, you can usually lay 25 grams no more than 1/4 inch thick in the dissy.

    scorche224 Member

    Using a vac it pro like 90% of the oil community. I pull a few vaccums 2-4 but I dont excessively let the pressure out unless im folding.. I was never taught to do that. Everybody up here is purging 60+ gram slabs in a vac it pro just like me but its COMPLETELY done, and heavily nucleated after 20 hours or so..
    Basically purging 3x more in a third of the time.

    Where am I going wrong?! Been extracting for a few years and I've never been this clueless or dumbfounded. Pulled it out of vac after 88 hours at 29.9 and sold the slab to a buddy. Have 4 more slabs I need to fully purge before material gets too old and by the looks of it its gonna take a few weeks at this pace ... grrrr

    Thin film is key... I can have a qwiso purged and ready to smoke in 24hours that's with no vacuum. Using a vacuum and a solvent with a much lower boiling point, times are cut in half at least......I have a hexane extract purged and ready in that time frame as well. Being much heavier than butane.... you have to be trying to purge thick chunks
