Centrifuge w fritted filter

#1

I want to refine my diamonds and sugar mechanically via centrifuge.

Anybody got any idea how I can modify my panda to do this safely?

You can buy the same one ypsioil is selling on Amazon for half the price, just gotta source those eppendorf tubes with the frit in the middle, I’ve got some hemp sauce that I’d love to give this treatment but I’m waiting for more feedback on this system before pulling the trigger

They told me I would need to cut the bottom off to retrieve the terps so the vials would also be single use. Also I think those tubes are plastic?

Edit: looks like they have updated the website and they are in fact single use if you plan on retrieving the terps, seems like there would be a better way to do this, hopefully in glass

The scale for the price is going to be freaking insane.

Let’s hope I dont have a steel reducer go flying across the room at 3200 rpm

Maybe pass those designs by an engineer who signs an NDA?

If you’re using 50ml disposable tubes, you should use a machine designed to swing them.

Or https://www.ebay.com/itm/Jouan-C412-Counter-Top-Centrifuge-C-4-12/254048919912? with the right buckets and inserts.

if you need to swing more than a dozen of them at a time, then I would look at ditching the consumables.

Has anyone used the ypsoil unit? How long do you guys run it to get good separation?

Has anyone taken this to the next level and tried to separate the liquid portion with a much higher speed centrifuge?
