Hello everyone ! According to you, which butane is the best, Colibri or Clipper ? For now I use Colibri and it seems to work very well. Do you know if it is N-butane, or a mix of iso-butane and N-butane ?
Colibri is the worst. Whip it is the best bang for your buck the premium master packs are 300

Puretane or n-butane. No propane in either, both usa made. Master case price is competitive if you purchase direct.

nope never heard of it, but for those going on about pure n butane, it seems many extractors prefer the mixes with partial propane in them, nicer oil it seems.

30 to 50% propane seems to be a sweet area for making extractions intended for the purdy market. Joe is currently liking 50% and using liquid N2 to keep the solvent temperatures below -30C.

We vacuum distill and mix our own using n-butane and n-propane or R-290/600, from either Industrial Source or Ecogreen.

At what temp do you need to keep your recovery tank if using a butane/propane mix, is it below -30C? I take it a standard ice bath would not work?

why do you say colibri is the worst? on TC it was tested as the second cleanest out there. i have not personally used it, but i have had friends use it and its always had low residuals. this was his test for residue
Colibri had 0.001g of residue
Colibri, UK, 300ml can, reads on the bottom "DOM 18.04.13 06:35"

also i plan on switching over to whip it premium on my next run, ive always used newport but ive been hearing way better things about whip it, plus i like the idea of 400ml cans compared to 300ml

I wouldn't say Colibri is the worst myself... it's just not any better than most for the increase in price. Must be the pretty can gets 'em? I don't know.

During the summer I brought some very nice oil to a club, and the "buyer" dude asked me what kind of butane I ran, I told him Lucienne, and he was like "awww... fuck man, really?" I replied, uhh yeah, why? His response, "we prefer to only buy oil that's been made with Colibri or another quality butane."

That was the last time I dealt with those wankers.

Anywho, I've also been seeing that people prefer using a blend of propane and butane as opposed to pure N-butane...

But, why the hate on propane? Can somebody tell me why a blend is inferior to a product like Puretane, for nearly double the price?

Sorry not the worst theRe is better. My residual tested more like .009 or even .01. On whip it like .0001 big difference. I use about 12 cans a run open blast and .009 x 12 is almost enough a lie. Substance to not want to use it.
