    Filtering solutions with EO?

    I was wondering if anyone else has ran into problems when filtering solutions with EO in them? I had two different stericup's blow out while filtering. Normally with glass receivers 15psi isn't a problem. I was using the plastic receiver bottles that comes with the unit this time. 1 blew out at 15psi and then another one blew out at 10psi.

    I'm not sure what the problem is. But I've never had a filter fail like that before, let alone 2x back to back. I was wondering if the EO was to blame in this situation? I have one stericup unit left so I'm going to keep the psi really low and see if I can make it all the way through it without the filter breaking.

    Solvents:
    2% BA
    20% BB

    Oils:
    33% EO
    66% GSO

    15psi with glass has always worked perfectly. It's just a pain to keep it at 5. Guess I'll just be paitent.

    Okay FUCK EO. That shit ate through the stericup receiver and leaked everywhere. SOOO PISSED. Theres no way in hell that it can be good for you.


    How come I've never heard of this problem before? No one seems to have any problems filtering stuff with EO in it.

    I broke my glass one so I just went with the stericup unit. It specifically says that it's rated for EO on the website. PVDF filters are supposed to be good with EO as well.

    I've been using gear with EO in it this cycle. I've had stomach problems, indigestion and continuous "soured" stomach belches. Ive cut everything else I can think of out of the mix and I still have these problems. I'm gonna switch to non-EO gear and see what happens.

    I'm beginning to think that EO is not good for you after all of this. We will see.

    Eo doesn't bother me. Also, I use the plastic receiver. I never have a problem and always keep psi at 4 max.

    Noteworthy- I keep eo at 20% max.

    Thanks for the tip ford fan.

    I noticed on some gear I had that they had used 33% EO. I figured I'd use that as a starting point. Well now I know. Just sucks to come home and find a cabinet full of test. That shit stinks and doesn't come out.

    Update:

    Tried a really small batch of tren with 10% EO and it worked. I kept the PSI right at 5. But towards the end, the oil started to leak on the outside of the stericup. Only lost a couple ml but it's just a pain in the dick. I've had that happen before however. Not sure what causes that.

    Do you think it's just the EO? Was it the correct stericup filtering material?

    Not sure brother. It's happened before with just BA/BB solutions. It's much less common when you have a glass receiver. Really that's the ticket.

    But word of advice. Always have at least 1 extra bottle top filter ready to go incase of emergency. Or at least have a glass bottle that you can pour it all back into until you can get another filter. These solutions DO NOT like sitting for any amount of time in those plastic bottles.

    Is there a better option on filters even if it costs a few bucks more?

    Personally I like the PVDF stericups in the .22 size. They might take a little longer but I've never been disappointed. The trick is to not get ahead of yourself and be patient. Keep the psi low and just be prepared to spend some time with it. Honestly, I haven't heard of a better filter.

    Tried some more EO solutions through it and it worked fine. I think I just had the PSI too high the first couple times.

    The past 2 steric ups I used were not tight. My fault on the first use. I should have checked to make sure everything was right and secure, it wasn't. Bitch was leaking everywhere. The we second steric up I checked before using. It was loose too.

    dont need to go low if u use a glass vacuum flask. only need to go low if ur using a crappy plastic one thats going to break anyway

    if u turn the stericups too tight,they break.

    they have too many issues

    Yeah pars is right. I experimented and realized that if you over tighten the stericups they will break. Best way to do it is to tighten it to the point where it will hold vacuum on your hand pump and leave it there. Too loose and it won't get any vacuum. Too tight and it will split.

    If anyone can post up a link to one of these flasks that pars is talking about that'd be sweet. I assume it's the same setup except it's glass and it would have replaceable filters. That would be the shit.

    I would like to hear the voice of experience.


    Can I use 2% BA. 20% BB. 10% EO. 68% GSO is good?
    Would be a good mix for acetrenb, testpropi, testenan and Masteron?

    IME I have to let the brew cool before filtering if it has EO. I've gone about as high as 50% and that's it and ecerytime I filtered it hot/warm it ate through filter membrane. Once I let it cool, no more issues.

    No 'need' for EO for those compounds unless you're going high concentration.

    Prop @200 is a good idea to use EO but not needed @100

    Don't filter the eo. Add it to the reciever bottle and just filter everything else. That stuff is prefiltered anyway.
