Did you know Pope has been manufacturing vessels for #Decarboxylation (among other things) for years? 😎 Pope Scientific manufactures #ASME code vessels and turnkey systems that can be utilized for this process at all scales and sizes. Adding portability to these vessels/systems is beneficial to allowing them to be repurposed as receiver vessels from solvent recovery and feed vessels for distillation systems.⁠

⚗️Pope Scientific manufactures Wiped Film Stills in both 316L stainless steel and borosilicate glass. When selecting a still system for purchase, materials of construction matter just as much as size and other features. ⚗️⁠

Both have their benefits, but how do you know which one is right for you?⁠

Pope's expert Dean Segal, vice president of sales and marketing, explains why it’s important and how to effectively remove #volatiles and solvents prior to, and early in the #distillation process to improve yield and quality.⁠

🤔1. Why does removing volatiles before the first distillation pass matter so much?⁠

➡️ The goal of the first distillation pass is to remove as many of the terpenes as possible. If these are removed well in pass 1, it will allow for a higher performance during pass 2, with less flashing and greater vacuum, throughput, purity, yield and clarity. However, if the feed to pass 1 also contains leftover solvent—typically ethanol—it weakens the overall operating vacuum, (no matter the type of vacuum pumps or how large they are), leading to less terpene removal. This has a spillover effect because pass 2 is burdened with more terpenes in the feed, diminishing the above-mentioned performance and results of this pass. It’s best to have much less than 0.5% solvent in the pass 1 feed.⁠

This Benchtop #CDB Isolation & #Crystallization System is the perfect if you're looking to get your feet wet with CBD crystallizing. 💎⁠

The laboratory Benchtop Isolation & Crystallization System can produce up to 1 kg of crystal and is excellent for small special batches, plus learning and applying techniques for CBD crystal production optimization. Pope offers a wide range of sizes and feature levels in turnkey production scale crystallizer/nutsche systems.⁠

At completion of crystallization, slurry is transferred to the nutsche for filtering, washing, and drying. The crystallizer is meanwhile cleaned, recharged for another cycle and run, thus both vessels are efficiently operating simultaneously. The system may be used with crude extract, but far better purity and yield results occur with distillate material of high 80’s to mid 90’s in cannabinoid percentage. CBD product to beyond 99.9%, with undetectable THC can be produced.⁠
