Lol yeah… where was this shit 2 weeks and 6-1 pound runs ago… well at least I was heading the right direction… wth?
this is what i was going to try this. tell me what you think .
i was going to run 4 9"x3" sleeves frozen on dry ice one at a time.
pack celite, clay or bleach or charcoal , the celite in filter plates(prep nite before)
also start with 25um then on top before celiteand 5 um and finish with 2um filters
run 6 to 7 lbs of 70/30 ntane through each column at -103
would love to figure this out with out post processing
or should i wait to use something else in between the celite or add more filter stacs
Did you not see where @Soxhlet has figured this out couple threads over! It’s new thread as of yesterday! He’s banging the door down!
No waste bro!!!
This what we here for!
If you were going to include celite you should add it as the very bottom layer since it’s just is to help catch small particles.
The use of bentonite will cause floccuation or the aggregation of suspended particles, for example if you used carbon dust to try to clean up your extract bentonite clay will cause the small particles to stick to each other via wlectrostatic forces of attraction and it makes large flakes of aggregated particles. The aggregated particleswill then drop to the bottom of the solution and are easier to filter because the particles are now much bigger.
Remember celite is used for clarity…you’re right…wouldn’t u want to polish one last time as the last step?
Maybe in the beginning too…
Like parenthesis lol
Man that’s what I was missing last night pemdas
If you stalled the butane solution and added t41 the bentonite in the solution would floccuate any proteins that were extracted and make them agglomerate into very large particles, T41 has the added benefit of having carbon already in its composition.
Then if you added a layer of celite at the top of your t5/t41 filter cake as well, you mitigate the contamination of your adsorbent layers because these now larger particles get filtered by the celite on top of the filter column. In @Soxhlet case since your silica gel layer is on top it should extend the life of your filter to some degree.
Yeah, Im gonna keep running this thing and collecting data.Im running it a different way today, cant wait to try the t41 thats in the mail!
I was also thinking if everything was rack mounted i could make individual columns for each of the products I’m going to use.
I have this theory that silica gel and magsil will lend themselves better to this application if it was being packed in a longer smaller diameter tube and I plan on testing this out.
thats exactly what i was going to try. just not sure what im going to do in between
Give a sop on your Carbon scrubing warm? Please😀
He’s just saying the filtration has to happen in the correct order to be effective. It was a reference to order of operations for the tek not math.
@Waxplug1 your SOP for color removal sounds very similar to future’s scrubbing procedure in his winterization thread.
Only issue is I think he said he didn’t use carbon that carbon made darker…
Here’s what I got out all that …
Dewax,scrub, polish…maybe celite,large t5,mag sil, an another celite … For his sop…
I’m ball parking here by reading btw lines…
Btw I think some other guys was telling me they think they have it to maybe they chime in
Carbon made it orange and had a low yield.
