I’ve been on my AI 5L mantle since 8:30am, and now it’s 12:10pm . I’m 225 /226 Celsius on mantle and 23.2 Celsius Head temp. I’ve been hovering right at 23-24 for the last 3 hours. I have to mention I already distilled terps yesterday for almost 6 hours, just trying to get to Body.
Is this normal? I’ve never expereince this before .
Appriecaite it any feed back, thank you in advance =)
Whats your vacuum gauge reading?
What is your condenser temp and vac level? Got a good stir going in your flask?
How much oil in boiling flask ?
How much cfm on the vac pump ?
Vac depth ?
Insulated your head ?
I have about 1900g in a 5L flask. My apolologies, I don’t have a vacuum gauge, only a vacuum gauge regulater. I just ordered a Vacuum gauge, running a Welch 1400 vacuum pump.
68 C on Head (climbing)
250 C mantle
26.79 nHG - Vacuum regulater
Thank you guys
Pushing your luck he !
Ok insulate your head with aluminium foil
Raise condnsor temp as high as possible
And that vacuum regulator say s 26 hg
If so aboard this mission because you have a major leak in system
If you do decide to abourt mission leave vac running till all has cooled down
You should be at around 300 micron in heads max
This is very far off
Please aboart this mission
The odds of making a decent product are none really
I like guiding but this is a no go
Sounds like I need a deeper Vac correct? Currently in the process on getting an Edwards 30 or AI SuperVac 21 and intergrate with the Welch 1400.
Get the edwards has a WAY better vacuum curve
Get a gauge
Ask me any thing anytime
This is the correct picture
Can you show pictures of your glass setup?
Thats even worse
Turn of the heat let the vacuum run get a good gauge and move on from there
The pumps cfm is way to low
I wish i could i am in exile at the moment
But i will soon
Rouge I meant if @Mister_Greenfuego could show his setup. i think we could help better with more info.
