Thanks, I just wanted to make sure. I finally stumbled across some reading that said when heating the powder in the oil, when the melting point of the prop is reached, if your solvents are correct the hormone will stay suspended in the oil, even after cooling, or this is the goal. This was my 1st conversion and all of it went great, and being a chem major halfway to my bachelor's, I thought the process of achieving the powder and having it dry was really pretty easy and straight forward. All my troubles have came making my powder/crystals into an injectable form. I thought this was the easiest part, and for me personally, boy was I wrong..lol.
Will all of your ba and bb evaporate when you heat? The guidelines I had used always listed mixing both in with your powder and then putting your oil in and heating. Then filter for your final solution. Should I heat my oil & powder to my desired m.p. temp then add my ba/bb and filter? Or should I heat my oil/powder, filter, then add my ba/bb at the end into my vial with my solution?
I apologize for the questions. I 90% of my research time into the conversion process, thinking the final steps to making into injectable oil was fairly simple and I've been stunned at the problems I've had with it.
** Another thing-- the filters I ordered were .2micron whatman. Thought they were gd/x but the lady said since my shipment was delayed, they upgraded them to a higher price filter. But didn't say what the upgrade was.
I know the filter material was partly pvdf as thats what they say on the actual filter. I also know to be very patient with them, as not to burst them, but trying to filter last night was unbelievably difficult. It took basically all my body weight of force to filter any amount of oil. I was having to press so hard just to get 2 or 3 small drips at a drip every 5 seconds or so, my fingers, palms, and hands today are killing me! THat was all just to obtain 20mL 's in a 3-4 hour time frame. I tried everything. Using a new filter after 10mL 's, backloading syringe, not backloading and putting on after drawing fluid, prefiltering my oil b4 mixing, prefiltering my heated powder/oil/solvents solution twice with coffee filter material, to no avail. Idk what is wrong unless the filter media isn't right for an oil solution. I expected it to be fairly slow and clog when full, but not 8ml to a 25mm filter, and not at least being able to filter 10mL in 10 minutes or somehting. I could've lived with that, but 30 mins a mL and all my might to even drip? I know something isn't right. Whatman's website says rate of flow should be around 50-60mL's per 60 seconds. I don't have the time or energy to set for 24 straight hours, pressing with all my force to only obtain 50mLs. Can you help me here?
