Drying butane, your options are molecular sieve or chemical drying agent (calcium chloride, sulfuric acid, the list goes on...)

If bubbling thru sulfuric acid makes sure you've removed any iso-butane as it will react
Help me out if I'm lost somewhere but, anything under 30 degrees on my recovery tank n butane has an extremely hard time pushing through my system, will most the time come to a halt if goes under zero and starts recovering more than its pushing through and I start going backwards anyone care to chime in? Would love to have butane colder than 30-40 degrees push through. I'm still producing about 15% off 4 month old trim colors vary.

We use a counter flow heat exchanger at the butane injector, instead of super chilling the tank.

You can also keep a second butane tank at higher temperature, and valve its vapor side to the vapor side of the cold tank, so as to provide more push pressure.

what temp would you ideally start with to run through material?

How tightly should the column be packed?

Just toss buds in there?

Lightly tamp?

Or pack hard?

Thank you for your infinite wisdom GW

Depends on the material.

Material reduced to <10/15% water content and reduced to 10 mesh packs at around 4.1 gm/cu in and prime bud broken into 1/2" chunks packs at around 3.8 gr/cu in.

I ram about every foot of column and push firmly on the ram but don't pound. I lean on it and when it glides to a firm stop, I call it good.

Ahh okay. Am I reading that correctly you use multiple mesh material packs inside the column?

The description of how hard you push was exactly what I was looking for thank you!
