Scroll Labs plans to exhibit at the annual cannabis science conference in Portland from Wed Sep 4 2019 to Sat Sep 7 2019.
The need of vacuum in cannabis extraction and distillation processes has been rising and hence we are committed to fulfill the cannabis industry needs .Our vacuum pumps can pull down to 0.005 mbar while handling moisture and organic solvents which is a requirement for this process.
Please visit our booth for further information or any inquires.

Following is an excerpt explaining the importance of choosing the right vacuum pump for cannabis extraction. The blog post entitled “This Is Why You Should Use a Vacuum Pump for Your Cannabis Extraction and Distillation” by Montana Families United.
Why Use a Vacuum Pump?
Once the chemicals have had an opportunity to do their thing expelling the “great stuff” from extraneous they should be evaporated off to leave just the extracted material behind. Since it is not the typical water evaporation, the temperatures required are very high, and the time to get this task completed is intense.
This is where science acts the hero for anybody wanting to make their own extracts in volumes bigger than a couple of grams at once: Cannabinoids in a vacuum evaporates more rapidly and at a lower temperature. An airtight container and a vacuum pump can spare a considerable measure of time and headache, while reducing the chances of expensive errors.
What Kind of Vacuum Pump Do I Need for Cannabis Distillation?
Many specialists suggest the use of dry pump for your extraction needs, as wet pumps depend on parts that can be disintegrated by some extraction chemicals, which causes a lot of headaches you don’t need. Generally speaking, the key components to consider are;
- Depth of Vacuum and Flow Rate
- Wet or Dry Operation
- Type of Unit
In the end, the kind of unit picked is imperative. Those searching for a pump to distill cannabis would almost certainly be looking using the above-listed criteria.
Regardless of the pump you pick, good maintenance is critical to keeping them buckling down for a long time to come. A vacuum trap or cold trap ought to be used to catch vapor getting away from the reaction vessel and shield the unit from harsh synthetic substances. Oil ought to be changed in oil-based pumps as per the manufacturer’s directions. Read the product manual properly for your pump to be sure it is legitimately maintained over the course of time.
Aren’t Vacuum Pumps Expensive?
This is more an issue of significant worth than it is an issue of cost. As specified above, cannabis distillation (including the utilization of a vacuum pump) is an entire 70% plus more concentrated than the bud that you’re purchasing. It wouldn’t take you too long to realize the savings involved make the long-term usage worth your while.Tags: Cannabis Science Conference
