Hey guys I’ve been on the forum lurking and researching for a while now, haven’t posted or anything to date so I figured on this run of spd I would post a topic and do a log of how things come out.
I’m in Michigan, and for my setup I’m using a 5L bf, thermowell, rare earth stir bar, standard triple cow and 1/4’ silicone hosing slipped over the glass joints instead of gl connections, with a sogevac sv28 BI. For the head on first pass I’m using a shorty head from Ypsioil.
I haven’t had the greatest success pulling the deepest vacuum in the past, probably 90ish lowest I’ve achieved on second pass, so that’s something I’m looking to gain more efficiency in as well as getting better at my fractioning skills, removing heads, gunk and smell fully before getting to mains.
With all that being said, I’ll post pictures of my setup and keep updating as I get through the run. About to start it up right now. Using about 2L of material with probably 500ml of ethanol left in it for transfer purposes so I’ll run vac, try to pull out the majority of that before adding heat and get right into it! Thanks in advance for checking this topic out and any knowledge that may manifest from this!
