My new dictator of operations bought a pressure cooker and handed me an SOP for decarbing our live rosin/cured rosin for edibles. SOP states no water needed with a decarb time of 4 hours on “high” heat. Would love to read your thoughts and reactions on this lol.
It s not such a bad idea
If it s a stainlesssteel version
Some inert gas would be nice or a bit of a volitile terpene to push out the O2 once it gets hot
Defenatly not on an open flame
But a heating plate with temp set at 100C should get your material decarbed and since it s shut when cooling down it will protect your product
The o rings are probably not terpene vapor resistant so I expect those to collapse pretty fast
But if it has a thick botom and the heating plate a constant temp control should work better than an open air beacker or convection oven
We use a non jacketed diamond miner (pressure vessel with gauge and prv) in a convection oven. This allows for pulling of vacuum to get most of the o2 out of there, but that’s not as big of an issue for edibles.
I got the idea here. Yes we keep the ball valve closed and monitor pressure. We use this process to decarb all products that require decarb. I’m currently building a large system similar to the one described below.
