Hey all, at long last the Color Remediation Vessel is here!
The one that is ready to go is an 80L vessel with a brushless, sparkles, explosion-proof motor to agitate the mixture in the vessel. The vessel can hold up to 145 psi, even while mixing. The Color Remediation Vessel can be pre-loaded with powders or the powders can be loaded mid-run. It has a jacket for temperature control and a lot of insulation.
With all that said, I’d like this thread to be a discussion of the efficacy of purifying concentrates in an agitated vessel as opposed to through a column. I know @Waxplug1 has much to share around the benefits of increased contact times with your powders.
Along with butane/propane in-line remediation, these methods work quite well in remediation of crude while in heavier hydrocarbons like hexane/heptane. @cyclopath @Shadownaught @Kingofthekush420 do you have experience with this?
I’d also like to explore different modes of agitation while our concentrates are in contact with our adsorbents. Sonication and mechanical agitation come to mind. What else might be interesting to explore? @MagisterChemist @wc15 @Photon_noir
We know adsorbants become more effective with higher temps and increased contact times, so let’s start exploring that!
