I just finished filling about 80 carts. Started with waxy oil, winterized and reintroduced Hemp terps. When I left the oil on a hot plate, it would become bubble free, when stirred it created a large amount of tiny bubbles, I’ve seen this before, all the bubbles come out when left still on a hot plate.
I filled the carts with my cart farmer gun, the oil wasn’t that bubbly in the gun, only a few bubbles when the oil was pulled into the gun, even after injecting into the cart it didn’t seem that bad. I had the heat pad set to 85c not sure if that was too hot.
After capping all of them I noticed the insane amount of air bubbles, I’ve never seen anything like it before. I’ve seen it with the last cart, where you inject some air because you’re out of oil, but I’ve never seen the whole batch bubble like this. I figured they would settle out, but it’s been 8 hours at 65’f and they haven’t budged much.
When I was vac purging my winterized oil, my vacuum gauge started leaking. I caught it quickly and don’t think much if any glycerine made its way into the oil. The bottom of my chamber is convex so the oil settles to the side leaving the middle oil free. I came back and found 2 drop of glycerine in the middle, which I wiped up with a paper towel. I didn’t think it would be an issue, since glycerine is used frequently in vape products.
So I ask you guys, does this seem like an issue? I’m about to throw them in my vac chamber without pulling vac and let them sit at 100’f to see if the air bubbles will settle
