Yes. All Bhogart extractors are designed to run with Propane and Butane. Bhogart extractors are all multi-solvent compatible. Our customers have had great success running our systems using only propane, as well as using a mixture of propane and butane.
Propane evaporates at an extremely low temperature of -40F which, when combined with its higher vapor pressure, makes for a quick and cold extraction.
Interestingly enough, a mixture of propane and butane will not distill out from each other at their respective boiling points – instead the solvents will bond with each other and form a unique boiling point depending on their ratios. Despite this bond, the propane will still boil off faster than the butane. To better understand vapor pressure as it pertains to gas combinations, reference the following link: [Click here]
Always remember to source the most clean and pure solvent you can find for your extractions.
