If you have ever dealt in adhesive before, then the term ‘Rosin’ is a familiar one. I am confident that you have seen some yellow-brown liquid of sought, that is quite thick and resists flow; often appears like glue. This may not be an accurate description of what I’m talking about, but it will do for now. My point is, that liquid is, in fact, rosin. They say good things tend to come from some bad sources in some cases, and as unpleasant as rosin is, it is widely used in making adhesives and inks. Being that rosin has certain financial advantages, you can start reaping form it by purchasing a machine to aid in its extraction. You will go out to look for a rosin press machine, and you won’t have to look far to find one. Using this article, you will figure out what mechanical factors need to be adhered to when picking a rosin press machine.
First on your list should be the matter of the rosin press machine plates. The machine of choice should have slender plates which are long and rectangular. For starters, you will enhance the perimeter to area ratio by using a rectangular plate. Having a greater perimeter means that there will be more room through which the rosin can escape once pressed. By using narrow plates, the rosin pressed out will move through a smaller distance from the center of the bag with the material to the ages. This means that the rosin will travel a shorter distance once squeezed out hence fewer chances of degradation due to heat.
Secondly address the issue of pressure. Most people live by the belief that the more pressure you pump in, the better or more rosin they will get. The above concept is wrong because the pressure applied will rely heavily on the kind of stuff being pressed, its growth process and age. Overdue pressure will push specific unwanted lipids and pigments into the rosin hence affecting quality. You should go for a rosin press machine with solid construction in terms of sustaining pressure within the desired range throughout the extraction process.
Take time to think about how the heat will affect your rosin quality. The matter of heat can’t be understated since you can’t do without it yet in excess it cause more harm. By making sure that heat is distributed evenly, you can keep heat from causing damage to the rosin. Recall it is the heat that lowers the viscosity of the rosin so that it flows. The secret is in the positioning of the heating coil in the plates. Therefore, before purchasing the rosin press machine, discuss with the seller as to where the heating coils have been placed and whether these positions will bring about even heat distribution.
