Dude i always blast the dried bubble trim especially if its not been bashed with a mixer,this trim had 2 very easy and short knock abouts with a wooden spoon cos i only wanted full melt to show my daughter lol she said i was a wrong un for drying out the bubble trim and now she keeps asking if i got any more oil as it 100% batters her.

 

I have a bowl sat in a hot water as i type this to warm up the oil i made this morning lol   i reckon i have about 4 more cans of butane worth of trim then im proper out doh.

 

Take it easy buddy

 

peace

 

eta im already looking forward to Bangi haze x blues and Smottie bho when the next one is down lol

There is no safe way to open blast period. It can be done without incident but it is in no way safe. 

 

If it goes up you will be extremely lucky not have a very serious situation on your hands.

 

Do it outside. If privacy is an issue then set up a tent/gazebo and let it evaporate in there. Don't hang about while it does, give it ten minutes. Go lower a rope or something. Wash your hands if you do like. Then go and check on it. This way if something happens you don't lose your skin, house or life or family members.

I would like to share my bad experience on using a cheap Korean brand that I've used to extract bho. The extract really taste bad and some of my friends say it taste funny. I am not sure if the cheap brand I purchased was defected. Due to that, I stop extracting. I throw the Korean brand and swear to god that I won't purchase another one. :(

I been using dexso gas instead of butane for the last few years. It costs a fair bit more but is non toxic food grade and much lower explosion risk, makes a glass type extract instead. Well worth the extra cost imo.

@nl5 Thanks for the info on Dexso, I had a look at this stuff about a year ago.

 

Do you Vac purge? Vac oven?

I purge it for a few hours in a 30c hot water bath and replace the water when temp drops to much, doesn't need to be really hot like butain. There's no real need to use a vacume, the .1% impuritys that's not dme is still organic and suitable for food uses.

@nl5 It also uses less than butane I read? What size tube and how much material do you use? and how much of a 500ml can do you think you use per extraction?

Cheers @nl5 I'm going to give it a go! I usually wait for BHO from my matey who has a closed loop system and oven but he is out of the country when my SAD's are done.

Do a review on the forum if you do, I've only ever done a few butain extractions so not really in a position to do a comparison.

Morning ya'll!  It's been a while since I've posted on this forum and would like to suggest that you check out the TAR site on Mystery Oil content at:

Also Skyhighler's list of brands he's tested and how much MO he found: (copy and paste, replace xx with pp)

I heartily recommend closed loop systems!  We open blasted dozens of super cases of lighter butane without incident outside with forced ventilation, but it does expose you to hazard requiring a single static spark to create about a 3500F fireball.

 

I developed the Terpenator closed loop system in 2009, and except for in class, have not open blasted since.  I also shared the design for a Lil Terp, which can be built for under $500, to fit more limited budgets.

 

Besides safety, consider the damage to Ma Earth exploring, drilling, transport, and refining the LPG, even before we use it once open blasting, to add to ground smog.

 

Also consider that unless you are pre-distilling the LPG before extracting with it, you are leaving Mystery Oil in your concentrate.

 

Lastly consider that by recycling the LPG, the cost of the closed loop system is recovered.

 

While we never had an incident, there were so many BHO explosions locally, that we removed open blasting instructions from our website.
