Closed Loop Reclamation Extraction System
(Comes with 1 yr. Limited warranty)
Please Read Optional Upgrades Section for Clarification on System Upgrades
The 1lb closed loop hydrocarbon extraction system performs botanical extraction within a sealed, vacuumed system. Utilizing a top-fill input, solvent washes thru the material column, collecting oils as it passes over the material. Oil bearing solvent is collected in the collection base under the material column. Once collected, solvent is distilled and recovered, leaving the oils in the collection base. This is a passive unit that utilizes pressure differences created by manipulating temperature to move solvent. This unit can be upgraded into an Active recovery unit by purchasing the upgrade kit. https://www.bestvaluevacs.com/clasu-k-trs21.html

(1) 1/4" 48" FJIC Stainless Steel hose
(1) 1/4" 60" FJIC Stainless Steel hose
(1) 1/4" FJIC HVAC hose
Standard pressure single pin clamp
Extra of each type of gasket
System Valves: Upgrades our Standard valves to High Quality USA Made SSP Instrumention or Swagelok fully encapsulated mini ball valves ***Note: Swagelok valves upgrade has a possible lead time of 3-5 days***
Base: Choose to upgrade the standard welded bottom base to include a 6" splatter platter. Or choose the fully jacketed option which allows circulation of warm fluid around the base for faster/more efficient recovery.
Dewaxing Column: This upgrade replaces the standard 3”x24” spool with its dewaxing sleeved counterpart. The sleeve is packed with dry ice to freeze the material, stopping the waxes and lipids from being extracted.
Ball Valve: Adds a 1.5" inline ball valve, clamp and gasket. This is HIGHLY recommended to be paired with dewaxing columns
Inline Sight Glass: Adds a 1.5" inline sight glass. This is used to see solvent drop from the material column into the collection base.
High Pressure Clamps: Replaces standard clamps with the high pressure variants. ***Note: If you select high pressure clamp upgrade, you must also select the high pressure option with the other applicable upgrades to receive a system fully outfited with high pressure clamps. Upgrades come standard with single pin clamps***
Quick Disconnects: Replaces JIC fittings with a quick release option by either SSP or Parker.

You can 'burp' the system to the outside to remove the butane/air vapor and start again.
I know this is highly unlikely, but could their possibly be Schrader valve depressors in any of the connectors? I attached a picture of a connector with depressor, the depressor is unscrewed to remove it.
Verify the identity of the vapor and dip tubes, the color coding is sometimes reversed.
