How DigiVac Products can Help with Aerospace/Altitude Simulation

Applications | How DigiVac Products can Help with Aerospace/Altitude Simulation Similar to how a majority of people come across items or products that have potentially touched or come into contact with some form of vacuum, people interact with things a plethora of satellites in space have operated or influenced in some way. Examples include using a GPS to get to and from work, making a call to someone in a different country, checking the weather report, or even something as simple as using the Internet. Satellites are an integral part of modern life, whether we realize it or not. However,

A PID Control Guide: How to Tune Your PID Controller

How to Tune the PID Controller? Tuning for PID control can be a bit complicated, since it’s all about balance and striking the perfect harmony among three different variables.  Finding this balance, however, is how your automated processes will continue running smoothly.  If a system is poorly tuned, several mishaps can happen, such as: Therefore, productivity can be impacted as it can make operators wait, reduce yield, or increase premature failures. For such instances, we have a white paper on our website that goes in depth about PID control in vacuum systems.  Said paper also has a brief explanation on

How to Set a Recipe on the SNAP

How to Set a Recipe on the SNAP How does the SNAP make Vacuum Science Simple? A little while ago, we released a short and simple video about setting a recipe for a SNAP Vacuum Controller, and in today’s blog, we’ll be highlighting in detail how to set a recipe for those who prefer reading instructions.  Now, if you’re new here, you might be wondering: What is a SNAP? SNAP stands for Simple, Nimble, Automatic Process and is a vacuum controller that essentially automates your processes.  It provides precise measurement, control, and venting all in one neat little box that

The Dinamo Patent: STEPPER MOTOR PROPORTIONAL CONTROL BELLOWS VALVE

DigiVac just received a groundbreaking patent that commercializes the use of proportional control applied to a vacuum bellows valve.  The benefits of this approach to vacuum control are immense. Previously, there were valves that you could control big vessels but were not precise. And there were precise proportional valves but were only good for controlling smaller vessels.

Why Should You Clean Your Vacuum Sensors?

Why Should You Clean Your Vacuum Sensors? A Case Study in Contaminated Vacuum Sensors & Their Effect on Readings Tim pitched a blog idea to me based around my experience with this repair. A customer sent a StrataVac Touch back that wasn’t reading correctly. The sensors were so contaminated for so long that it changed how they read vacuum and even after repeated cleanings and attempted adjustments, the gauge would not read in spec. I took some data at relevant points after cleaning but before calibrating, after attempted calibration, and then after replacing the sensors. Seems like a good potential

The Original Resinator’s Behind the Process: Crop-to-Cure® Part 4

From the newly improved aromatic terpene profile achieved with the digital bleed valve from DigiVac’s StrataVac, The Original Resinator was now able to  optimize freeze drying for their botanical products to retain the quality that customers expect, while bringing products to market faster. The research and experiments that went into the parameters for the bleed valve control benefits not only the user, but improves the overall quality of the cannabis.

The Original Resinator’s Behind the Process: Crop-to-Cure® Part 3

From our two previous articles “The Original Resinator’s Behind the Process: Crop-to-Cure® ” part 1 & part 2, we found out more about freeze drying and the challenges of dealing with botanical products transitioning through many stages. One of the primary issues we worked to solve was one of time – how long would it take from harvest through curing utilizing the sublimation process? And as it turned out, trying to expedite the process of botanical lyophilization was proving to be more challenging than expected.

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.
