Collection tank purge

Has anyone ever fully purged in a jacketed collection tank?

Purged what the air before extraction ?
The solvent after extraction ?
If you mean the solvent yes and depending on layer thickness it a nightmare althou warm jackets help
Once the muffin starts it s pretty important to keep observing if it doesn t travel treu the vacuum line
Rolling the pot around helps every once in a while
All in all not a great way
To get rid of solvent

The mk III was not jacketed, but the OG sop came pretty close to “full purge”…

…something about understanding history then repeating it for science…


Purging out solvent in a jacketed collection tank.

Thank you brodie :pray:

Just wondering if it’s possible/being done.

I mean it’s the same concept as an oven. Was thinking you could just distill down to 0 and heat for a bit then pull a slight vac while heated by hot water going through the jacket.

It’s more about how you gonna get it out if it’s finished

Going into a 300l cauldron after it isn’t most folks idea of a good time :shushing_face:

A rubber spatula should do. Especially if it’s a sugary.
