The Original Resinator’s Behind the Process: Crop-to-Cure® Part 2

As we discussed in our previous article “How Do You Optimize Botanical Freeze Drying?”, there is more to the process of freeze drying than just a simple project fix to vacuum engineering. It is a science. And part of the science is what is known as the “cold chain”. The cold chain is the process of actions and equipment required to maintain a product within a low temperature range from harvest to consumption. This means reducing the total time required from garden to shelf by leveraging the lyophilization process during harvest. That is why creating a cost and time efficient way to cure, sublimate, and freeze dry cannabis is a priority for DigiVac and The Original Resinator. From freezing conditions and environmental exposure to live buds, the research behind the Crop-to-Cure® technology was challenging because

The Original Resinator is trying to cut back the time and effort required to achieve the same or greater results in less time compared to traditional drying methods.

The Original Resinator’s Behind the Process: Crop-to-Cure

There is a huge demand for medical and high quality cannabis flower, but the production cycle is long and is subject to human error which can lead to a lower quality product. The Original Resinator (TOR) is a leader in research and development for optimizing post-harvest efforts by manufacturing equipment that is specifically designed for the needs of cultivators and extractors.

Solvent Recovery and Distillation

The term ‘solvent’ refers to several chemical substances which are used to dissolve or dilute other substances or materials. They are usually organic liquids.  Solvents usually have a low boiling point and evaporate easily or can be removed by distillation, thereby leaving the dissolved substance behind. Solvents should therefore not react chemically with the dissolved compounds—they must be inert.

Vacuum Drying Temperature-Sensitive Materials Effectively

Some materials are super sensitive to temperature making it more  difficult  to vacuum dry . It is crucial  to make sure that the temperature remains constant as it can  end in a loss of materials if an error were to happen. Not being able to completely control your vacuum can result in  making you restart the process back to square one.

Don’t Get Fooled By These Common Vacuum Processing Myths

Rotary evaporators are advanced scientific instruments that are commonly used in chemical laboratories, processing laboratories and in research to facilitate fractionation. This separation process allows the solvents to be removed gently through evaporation and the precise control of the temperature.

What is Solvent Recovery?

Solvent recovery is the process of extracting target products from waste or by-product solvents generated during the manufacturing process. These chemicals can then be repurposed, reducing the need to produce or purchase new solvents, while eliminating a large amount of waste and removing potentially hazardous substances from the primary processed material

Secrets for Drying Fine Powders in a Vacuum oven

Many people come to find out that they have problems when it comes to vacuuming powder. Especially drying fine powder that tends to get puffed up and pulled into the vacuum pump flooding it.  With the pumps flooded this leads to an unfortunate problem, one you end up losing the powders you’re trying dry and two it isn’t the best for your pump either.
