Yes, we do! A majority of our lab equipment is first inspected by our manufacturers and then by our team of engineers when we receive them to verify functionality and quality. Here are a few examples of how we test our equipment. Our Roto Evaporators go through an intensive glass inspection to locate any cracks or bubbles at critical spots. Our Vacuum Ovens undergo a 24-hour vacuum test, to make sure they don’t lose over 1" of vacuum. Our Extractors are nitrogen-tested at 100psi for 24-hour time span to test for any leakage.
It is possible, but before doing so, it is highly recommended to secondarily dewax the material. This will require the use of a second solvent in some cases. It is also necessary to decarboxylate the extract prior to distillation. Failure to do these steps will result in sullied glassware, potentially contaminated product. You can learn more about removing fats, waxes, and other inactive and unwanted compounds though this blog.
The boiling point of the target compounds depends entirely on the vacuum level achieved. The deeper the vacuum, the lower the boiling point will be. Deeper vacuum levels can be achieved by having a stronger pump paired with quality glass. Higher quality glass has tighter parameters when being made, ensuring a quality seal when properly greased.
