Have you tried Freeze-Drying?
I see you have raised your Extraction Vessel Temps to try to keep water out of the solution, is the water miscible in your extracts? Can you chill your extract after you collect it and pour off the water?
@Alaskan_Thunder, yes. that is a good understanding.
@preacher, In normal operating conditions, the co2 leaves the extractor as a supercritical fluid + extract mixture, and leaves the separator as a gas - extract. inside the separator it is a flu…
In your separators, you are trying to go from a overcritical fluid state to a gas, and dropping your heavy stuff that the gas can't hold.
Don't worry about the heat, you have a liquid pool in the cup that keeps your heat away from your extracts.
Your separator temps are too low. 130-140f always.
Higher temps on your extraction vessel, also. You are still into subcritical even at 1800 psi.
try this for helping you figure out what ph…
This is a great question. I really don't see why it wouldn't work. Especially if you evaporated the Etoh beforehand. Still, even with the Etoh in there, as long as you don't push chlorophyll thru into the separator I don't see why not
I saw someone use a sheet of glass with 400 watt grow light about 2 ft underneath. They spread the extract on the glass and folded it like fudge until the water evaporated. I have not used this method myself, but they swore by it.
