Screen Material for DIY Dry Ice Hash Buckets

Recommended Posts

I'd like to trial the dry ice hash extraction method, but don't want to invest in an expensive set of bubble bags for something that I'm not sure I'll end up using long-term.

 

Can anyone recommend a local supplier for polyester screen material, which could be used to put an inexpensive DIY solution together? I'd ideally like to get some 160 micron and 220 micron sheets.

Further thought on this: I have a ~25L bag made from voile, which I got for home-brewing. I've just had a quick look, and found a forum post on a different site, where someone claimed that voile has a pore size of around 210 microns. Assuming that's true for my bag, could I get away with making a (low-quality) dry ice hash using just this bag?

You will need to be in the realm of 220micron to 70 micron.

And a small camping washing machine will help.

It's worth every cent spent. Nothing can beat paying school fees. Practical experience trumps.

Have fun.

Thanks guys - will check these ideas out.

 

BTW, I had a look at my brewing/grain bag under a loupe, and - although I didn't have anything to measure against - I reckon that the pore size is greater than 220 micron - my guess is around 500.

Green Leaf Organics, was that done with a DIY screen, or a commercial/purpose-made product - e.g. bubble bag?

I used my work bag which is a 220u screen but a screen is a screen . Just make sure it's the right micron . Go to a silkscreen place get a piece of screen and stretch it over a bowl . Dont force the product  through the screen , just gently work the material on top of the screen . You may want to get a 120u and a 90u piece as well. I used a 220u on the cheese because the cheese has very large trichomes . If your strain had smaller trichomes you will want to use a smaller screen . Full melt is generally below 120u , so it all depends on what quality you looking for . If you dont mind some contaminate or if you want a clean full melt you will need different screen .

Looks amazing bro.

Try pressing  your 90 Melt bag into Rosin - unbelievable quality

Thanks GLO - That does look fantastic. I'll get hold of a ~120µ silkscreen and try this out.

Invest some cash into bubble bags dude.

They very versatile.

Can make ice water hash, dry ice hash and even 99.99% dry sift.
