    Just a quick question to everyone, how do u keep butane cold when running from a tank? Should I just throw my distilled butane tank in a bucket full of dry ice? Or will a small condensing coil (jockey box coil) in a bowl of dry ice and alcohol bath, positioned before the extractor column, make the butane cold enough before hitting the material?
     
  2. I have a Bhogart extractor, my material tube is 3" x 48" and it has a sleeve around the tube for dry ice. Actually I am waiting for a couple gaskets and clamps to make my first pull. I have a few questions before I do this. Is there another thread on this subject that you know of?

    There are a few threads, rollitup, Reddit, IC Mag, and here are a few places that have dedicated forums for extractions. You can also try site like skunkpharm and hemphacker, which has tutorials on how to use the CLS. Other than that it's pretty much learn as u go.
     
  4. bhogart coils to pre chill your solvent...

  5. Graywolf's design...
    this one, I believe, is a triple core, 3 separate coils in one pot together, used for pre chilling solvent and cooling pump exhaust.

  6. Notice on these 2 examples that they both drain to the bottom, instead of looping back up, like some other companies offerings.... this is definitely the better design. I am in the process of having one made, using this coil. link

  7. Wrote a big thing on condenser coils, but I think @aSilvrHaze has it pretty covered. If your having trouble getting the last bit of solvent out of a tank, hot water on the side of your tank should do the trick. I use denatured alcohol for it's price. A jacketed column is also another good one for running as cold as possible. For sauce, both a jacketed column and the condenser coil are needed for quality. Anyways good luck.

  9. The problem with those coils is when you're done with the run, there will still be solvent left in the coil that will have to be boiled off to recover instead of gravity draining it into the rest of the system , adding time to your overall length of run.
     
  10. Hot water clears up coils and lines adding only seconds extra to a run, just sayin.
