Hey everyone, sorry for the newbie questions but I’m trying to learn. I have a Mk3 terpenator with a 450g dewaxing column and a 20lb n-butane tank and a 30# recovery tank. As I said, I’m a complete newbie, so my understanding of the process previously was that you would have the n-butane tank hooked up, it would run through the material, then you would recover it into the recovery tank. However, after reading and watching videos (particularly from the Terpp Extractors YouTube page), it seems like I should be doing that process (not exactly the same as the extraction process?) without any material first, which from my understanding is distilling the 99.5% n-butane into a more pure form, into the recovery tank? And then using that recovery tank to do an extraction, without the original n-butane tank hooked up?
Again, sorry if these are stupid questions, I’m just trying to learn and bought this system because I wanted to do it the right way. I have a great setup to do it at my warehouse, I have proper ventilation with explosion proof exhaust fans, etc. I’m just kind of confused at this step of the process. I appreciate any help.
