One employee was injured when the fire broke out about 7: That report was given to Broomfield Tuesday afternoon and can be found online. Ward 2 Councilman Mike Shelton said the main question the report raises is what Extraction will do differently in Broomfield.
For the rest of ya'll just learning of the process, let's quickly examine what SFE is, by looking at what Wikipedia has to say about it, followed by our kicking off our affordable DIY CO2 extractor design project: In that state, the CO2 becomes a super solvent, which has higher penetration power, and can be fine tuned to focus in on specific constitutes, by varying the pressure, temperature, and by the use of co-solvents like ethanol or hexane.
Fair enough, and easy enough to accomplish several ways! Traditionally a high pressure intensifier pump is used to achieve the required pressures. You start with liquid CO2 or dry ice and heat it in an enclosed space.
My first conceptual of a system that was semi affordable, was a simple minded system using liquid CO2 and heat to run it at about PSI. That eliminated the pumps normally used and by using a liquid Dewar with a dip tube, with both a gas head and a liquid tap, the need for any liquid pumps is eliminated as well.
It is designed to use readily available Schedule austenitic stainless pipe and its largest component is small enough to fit in my 7" X 36" lathe.
My original plan was to use an existing hydraulic cylinder for my vessel, but alas, carbon steel embrittles excessively at cryogenic temperatures. My design calls for achieving pressure by simply heating the pipe with available pipe band heaters. Pressure was controlled using a conventional, though expensive back pressure regulator.
Please note the attached conceptual, which reflects my thinking four to five years ago. I put the project on the back burner after reading the SFE CO2 patents for extracting cannabis, and noting that CO2 isn't a very aggressive solvent and the patented processes used significant fluid exchange rates, as well as relatively long spans of time.
To compound that, reports from those testing SFE CO2 extractions reported poor taste and effects, so I put CO2 extraction on the back burner to just watch for awhile. Within the last couple of years several folks have done some interesting work starting with dry ice.
The first that I noted was able to maintain high enough pressure in a test tube to keep dry ice from sublimating as it warmed, so as to extract some Limonene from an orange peel. That led me to question whether super critical pressures were required to extract the essential oils from cannabis that we typically extract with other solvents, and further experiments by others suggests that it is not.
Some even report better results at subcritical pressures, especially with the use of co-solvents. Sub critical extraction presents an interesting twist from a simplicity standpoint, so of course my simple mind immediately envisioned replacing the test tube with a pressure vessel containing dry ice in the bottom, and a basket of material suspended above it.
Screw down lid and bring it up to temperature with a pipe clamp heater for pressure. Flooding is achieved by simply turning it upside down to soak the material and right side up to drain. That step could be repeated back and forth, to soak the material and keep the boundary layers diminished.
On setting it upright the final time, we could bleed off the liquid into an expansion chamber and then to atmosphere, leaving behind the oil.
I have decided to build a 2" X 24" prototype, and have acquired two resources on this project that emboldens me.
The other is an agreement with another old friend, who owns a cryogenic equipment manufacturing plant back east and is familiar with SFE. So here is my first simple minded conceptual using liquid: Here is my simple minded conceptual starting with dry ice: OOPs, solly, watch this space!
After flipping it about a few times, over an extended soak, the vessel is set upright and attached to the lower expansion chamber via a hydraulic quick disconnect.
Well thank the Great Spirit for ex-brother in laws, who can sort out computer problems, so that I can print from virtual mode.
Hee, hee, hee, kept him at tossed the sister Here is my simple minded conceptual of how such a dry ice system might work.While there is debate about the cause of the decline, there is universal agreement that this performance is untenable.
As the industry outlook has deteriorated, most mining companies have shelved or trimmed expansion plans and refocused on doing more with less. The MDBA report appears to confirm his concerns that the reason behind the river running dry is over-extraction, not weather.
It looked at flow behaviour in the Barwon-Darling system from to and analysed more than 2, individual flow events, focussing on the measurements between gauges during dry spells.
Billions of litres of water purchased by taxpayers to save Australia's inland rivers are instead being harvested by some irrigators to boost cotton-growing operations, in a policy failure that.
The oil and gas extraction subsector consists of a single industry group, Oil and Gas Extraction: NAICS Workforce Statistics. This section provides information relating to employment in oil and gas extraction. Abstract: Caffeine was extracted from tea by the use of solid-liquid and liquid-liquid extractions.
