Removing residual solvents and water quickly is critical in a purge oven. By selecting the right vacuum pump, you can dial in the right combination of temperature and pressure to achieve two critical goals. You will minimize process time by quickly boiling off solvents and water. And you will get the highest product quality by maintaining the integrity of plant oils and terpenes.
