So i would need to be getting down to -40/-45 to recover it all?

Easy to do with silicone heat mats and PID controller, or a NEMA 7, Class I, Div I installation using hot water jackets and PID controller.

As far as extracting more fats and lipids, boiling the LPG out of the plant material leaves behind any solids dissolved in them. We are heating the column after the liquid has stopped dripping and extraction is complete.
Thanks for the info!

So heating the extraction column as well as a lower recovery temperature should result in me recovering more of the solvent.
