The magnesol is the finest filter powder in use atm. And requires a 5um screen to ensure it doesnt pass to your finnal product
So I got the 5um sintered disk in from BVV for my 4" spool, but it looks like there’s some kind of shortage of 4" filter plates lately. I can get one for $99, but fuuuckkk that price. Think I’d be fine just placing the disk into my 4"-2" bowl reducer and stacking powders on top of that?
Reach out to killa
I use paper under my powders in a filter stack attached to a 6" column
Idk why i hadn’t thought about that, but PM sent! Do you prefer the paper over the metal mesh filters? I’m just worried about blowing out paper filters at 60 PSI.
I dont use the screen part of the fikter stack. I just use the round ring pressing it down with the paper. No blow outs yet.
Stuff will slip under your plate if it’s just places in a bowl that’s bigger than it. I’ve tried…
Aw, lame… I also have a 2" spool with a sintered disk and filter stack. Maybe I can hook that up to the bowl reducer to catch all the fines that slip through. Seems like there’s a universal 2-week wait time for those damn 4" filter stacks.
Probably due to the color remediation threads lol
Yooo You are paving roads for us here
After hearing about another member mention they had good results from letting their solution sit overnight with T5, I was able to do a side by side experiment without interrupting my production too much…
This is from the same batch of room temp extracted hemp.
Left beaker was scrubbed warm with T5 and allowed to cool before filtering over a bed of AC, Celite and 8um paper filter
Right Beaker was scrubbed warm with T5 and allowed to cool overnight before filtering over a bed of Celite and 8um paper filter
How warm was the scrub? Also, how much t5 did you use, same for the ac? This is an excellent side by side! Now it would be great to know if one has more cannabinoids than the other.
Haha, thank you, homie. I’m glad you think so. I’m just trying to give back as much as i can to this awesome community! Thank you for everything you’ve contributed too!
Seems to confirm that the AC is purtinent for chlorophyll. There’s greens, browns, and some reds for chlorophyll spectrum?
I flushed the bowl with all my used media and definitely got stuff out, it did start leeching out some green too, so be careful when you are flushing. I put 2 gallons through it.
I use about 10g of T5 per liter of solution - so about 50g per 5L beaker
Heat to ~80°F and cooled to room temp
Edit: I use my hochstrom filter from summit and load it with ~2cups Celite and ~1cup AC(just enough to create a layer) per 15L of solution. I’ve found any more than the 15L and the filter cake slows almost down to a trickle.
Thanks for that info. I myself found out that the last batch of room temp carried with it more water solubles, so i filtered to much through my media and got some charred sugars in the decarb pot. I’m going to revert to just using 5 gal for the above ratios I’ve provided to avoid this happening again. I need more testing with room temp extraction and better material before i can decide to go with cryo or room. I’m doing the spd run tomorrow, so I’ll know a bit more by then. The quest continues.
Likewise - appreciate all your input as well
I’ve started to only process my hemp at room temp as it’s destined for isolate and am not as concerned with thermal degradation.
As for my cannabis biomass - if it’s for distillate, extract warm. Shatter or other forms of dabs, extract at subzero conditions
