I did it!
I made a thing!
Created a DIY pentane soxhlet extractor for cheap!
-$80 1L soxhlet extractor from eBay (holds approx 80g minced dry flower
-$50 Craiglist AC unit turned into a -12c chiller
-$20 aquarium pump and circulator (Amazon)
-$15 misc. Electronics (power bar, etc.)
-$80 magnetic stirring heating mantle (Amazon)
This is a pilot project of something I’m gonna build big! I’m currently doing a live resin extract.
A few perks are:
-No pumps (except vacuum at the end to purge solvent)
-Low boiling point solvent (keep terps!)
-Everything can be easily ran on a single household plug.
-Decent (I’m assuming) extract efficiency with constantly cycled fresh solvent!
-I put it on castor’s so it’s easy to move around when I need to!
Here’s some photos. I’ll update in couple days when finish off this 1/2lb of material.
Let me know what you folks think!
