What’s going on lovely people of the community.
I have about 50 gallons of ethanol and quite a large amount of biomass to work through. Currently I am evaporating my ethanol using my short path and recoverWrong using the cold trap.
We can’t currently afford a rotovap and I was just told by my boss that he doesn’t care about recovery. He just wants to make enough distillate to be able to buy the rotovap with the 50 gallons we currently have.
My question is does anyone have reccomendations for a large pot and electric hot plate/Burner that I can use to purge all my ethanol before running the resulting crude oil through my short path? I’m working through about 18lbs per day leAving me with about 24 liters of ethanol that has to be boiled off.
Any input would be much appreciated. Lovin y’all.
