Recovery time depends on the temperature of the collection vessel. We recommend 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit, though temperatures up through 110 are entirely safe… Just be sure not to burn your extract. Recovery time depends on the number of recovery pumps, the warmth of the collection chamber and how cold the recovery tank is. The colder the recovery tank, the faster you will recover all of your solvent into a liquid. Using condensing coils or a heat exchanger also speeds up the rate of solvent recovery. Normally, the system should recover within an hour to about an hour and a half, but if the system is not optimally configured this process can take longer.
