Terpene Traps are Here! August 30 2016
The CF series Terpene Trap utilizes the Peltier effect to create a cold trap which will retain your terpenes that your vacuum pump is currently off gassing into the atmosphere. By passing DC current through the device hot and cold zones are created. This is achieved with no moving parts, so your failure rate over the course of time is extremely low.
As an ideal addition to your closed loop extraction setup, the terpene trap will go between your vacuum oven and your vacuum pump. Not only will you be capturing terpenes, but you will be prolonging the life of your vacuum pump which are typically not designed to have terpenes move through the housing.
The advantage of the CF series of Terpene Traps over a more traditional cold trap is the spectrum of material it will pull. A cold trap is typically so cold you pulling out residual butane and any other hydrocarbons which may be in the vapor. With the CF series Terpene Trap the temperature is not so extreme that you will pull butane, but instead rests in the range of temperature which predominately pulls terpenes only.
The CF-200 will be installed in between your vacuum oven and your vacuum pump via a 3/8" hose barb connection.
NOTE: This is not going to produce a crazy amount of terpenes. Yields of 1ML to 3ML of terpenes from 10lbs to 15lbs of material have been reported.
NOTE: If you have multiple strains in the same oven you will get a mixed bag of terpenes.
