How the Crystallization Chamber Works:
The Diamond Miner works by modulating pressure and water content of live resin. It can be pressurized to 15 PSI. Additionally there is a desiccant chamber that can be opened – making way to remove water from the resin while the system is under pressure. Live resin often contains large amounts of water because extraction occurs on frozen biomass. Excess water can often extend the process to grow crystals.
Safer than ball jars. Ball jars cannot be pressurized from the outside and are quite unsafe and it is estimated that they will eventually be banned by most regulatory agencies.
Safety valve set to break at 15 PSI to prevent overpressurization
Gauge to assure correct pressurization and keep run data
Viton gaskets are chemically resistant to terpenes and hydrocarbons
Everything is connected with tri-clamp fittings
Laser etched nucleation sites allow crystal growth to start faster than other systems
Leg posts for stability
Stainless steel and pyrex viewing glass allows excellent visibility to see crystal growth (a great benefit for operations so they don’t depressurize the system too early)
The desiccant chamber is housed on the head of the diamond miner (it has a ball valve so the operator can expose the atmosphere in the diamond miner for only as long as necessary to remove the water)
The side of the head is a stainless steel tee connected to the gauge and the quick-disconnect coupler
