its a closed loop extracting system... and it takes a few parts....

 

the column and collection pot above are the base of the system.  to make it run, you also need a recovery pump, a butane tank, butane, and a vacuum pump to make the whole thing work.

 

here is a pic getting ready to fill the machine with butane.

the small vacuum pump (yellow hose) sets the system under a vacuum, preparing it to receive the butane from the new tank (green).....  the butane will end up in the bottom of the pot, evap off and be recovered into the butane storage tank (yellow)

Nifty, and for people who think it looks hard, it's not. Once you understand what's going on it's fairly simple.

simple.....is an overstatement

 

definitely not stoner proof...ive made plenty of mistakes... no boom yet.... but mistakes

 

 

kk, more about those later.

 

here is a pic of the machine set up and running

IMG_0438.JPG

 

the butane travels from the yellow storage tank, into the bottom of the column.  the butane fills the column and overflows the top hose, which ends up in the lower tank under the column.  

 

the liquid butane boils in the lower pot and is captured as a vapor by the recovery pump that puts the butane back into the yellow storage tank.

 

closed loop system :)

 

in the foreground there is a scale to weigh the butane tank before, during, and after, to measure how much is going through the system.
