Tools and material used.
“Zkittles” that I ground up in the coffee bean grinder and stuffed the tubes with.
Tubes are a turkey baster and some medicine bottles that i cut the lids to make rings to hold the screens.
Doing this outside with someone at home to hopefully save my life if something goes wrong
Safety first y’all!
Do more research on safely “open blasting butain” then just my post please… This step can be extremely dangerous so be safe!
But it’s pretty straight forward.
I place silicone dish (cake pan this time, but any will work) in another dish with water i got to a boil in microwave (boil water however you can and pour it in first dish and place silicone in the hot water)
I squirt/blast the butain through the tubes into the silicone dish and let it condense down till I can gather up the “wax”.
Once gathered up i place it on some parchment paper and place it in a vacuum chamber.
My chamber is only 1gal so its small
I’ll pull a small vacuum watching so it doesn’t “marshmallow up” and touch the sides, turning vacuum on and off at first till it settles down.
I will then place the chamber in a “hot bath” just like the dish outside.
Heating the chamber helps speed up the purging process and remove all the butain gas from the product.
Here’s 3 grams of the finished product.
