What is Rosin?
Rosin in the broadest definition is a solventless extract made with only the use of heat and pressure. Rosin could be obtained by pressing essentially any material between two heat platens. During the rosin process, heat allows for the plants essential oils containing the terpenes & cannabinoids we all love to become more viscous and mobile. The pressure along with heat then push these valuable essential oils through a filter, away from the heat and onto parchment paper for collection. The texture and consistency of rosin are similar to other forms of dabbable waxes (ie.shatter, budder, sauce)
There are many forms of rosin. They are usually categorized by the starting material in which it was made from, and the consistency of the final product. Some examples are:
Live Rosin - Rosin which starting material is fresh frozen bubble hash.
Sift Rosin - Rosin which starting material is Dry Sift.
Flower Rosin- Rosin which starting material is Flower.
The broad term ‘rosin’ could refer to Flower Rosin, or any of these other types. The finished product can be made into essentially any type of texture & consistency by changing the extraction parameters and/or by agitating the extract. Rosin can range from shatter pull & snap, to a budder consistency. Rosin should be stored similarly to bubble hash, in a cool environment with limited exposure to moisture and light.

What Press is Best for me?
-The Cam Rosin Press is great for everyone, from the home processor to the avid hash smasher. This press provides the most natural feel and is recommended by some of the top processors as the connoisseurs choice for its precision while extracting from concentrates. The Cam Press still boasts high pressure with a 100-to-1 handle ratio, so processing flower is no problem.
Flower Capacity: 3.5-5 grams
Concentrate Capacity: 2-8 grams
Filter Size: Thin & Skinny, 25u Pressing Squares

-The Thin & Skinny Press is pneumatically powered and capable of running all day with little to no fatigue to the user. The smaller heat platens match that of the Cam Press and are perfect for streamlined small-batch high-quality processing. The down stroke adjustment provides precision control over pressure output, while the smaller plates allow for your rosin to escape the heat as quick as possible.
Flower Capacity: 3.5-5grams
Concentrate Capacity: 2-8 grams
Filter Size: Thin & Skinny, 25u Pressing Squares

-The Baby Brick Press is pneumatically powered and provides an increased flower capacity when compared to the Thin & Skinny and Cam Presses. The Baby Brick sized heat plates are still small enough to allow for minimum degradation when processing quality melts into Rosin. All pneumatic rosin presses are outfitted with a downstroke adjustment to give maximum control over the time it takes to come up to full pressure.
Flower Capacity: 6-10grams
Concentrate Capacity: 2-14 grams
Filter Size: Baby Brick, Thin & Skinny, 25u Pressing Squares

-The Brick Press is best fit for the commercial operator that require a larger processing capacity. It is pneumatically powered which means it can be operated using a CO2 tank or an air compressor to do most of the hard work. It has the largest heat platens and most force in the rosin technologies line while maintaining the same pressure-to-plate size ratio as the other models. The Brick press also has a downstroke speed adjustment to give maximum control over the time it takes to come up to full pressure. This proves to be very handy when pressing sift and bubble hash.
Flower Capacity: 10-14 grams
Concentrate Capacity: 6-20 grams
Filter Size: Brick, Baby Brick all micron

What is the size of heat platens on each model press?
-Cam: 1.75” x 2.75”
-Thin & Skinny: 1.75” x 2.75”
-Baby Brick: 2.25” x 3.30”
-Brick: 2.8” x 4.0”

What is the maximum pressure of each model press?
-Cam: 3,000 lbs. of force, with a leverage ratio of 1/100
-Thin & Skinny: 3,000 lbs. of force, with a power factor of 19.65
-Baby Brick: 4,650 lbs. of force, with a power factor of 31
-Brick: 9,300 lbs. of force, with a power factor of 62

What is the purpose of the Rosin Filters?
The purpose of the rosin filter is to keep contaminate our during the rosin process. There are various micron sizes specific for the type of material you’re processing. For flower, you want to use 90 micron or larger. For concentrate, you’d want to use 25 micron rosin filters.

What is the purpose the the prepress mould?
The prepress mould compacts material before extraction, providing consistency amongst operators + squishes. The prepped material also has a lesser chance of ‘blowouts’. Not designed to be used with heat. Each mould has a matching filter which allows for maximum yield
-Thin & Skinny Capacity: 3.5-5g flower
-Baby Brick Capacity: 5-10g flower
-Brick Capacity: 10-14g flower

What is the benefit of the Cooling Disc?
The cooling disc set provides the operator with a convenient tool to quickly cool their rosin after extraction. It is beneficial to remove any residual heat as fast as possible to help limit terpene degradation of your final product. Quickly cooling your rosin also helps provide a more consistent product.

What size air compressor is required to power your pneumatic rosin presses?
Maximum operating PSI for all our pneumatic rosin presses is 150 PSI. Compressors with less than 150 PSI output will work, but limit maximum pressure of press. Tank capacity for the compressor is relevant to ‘refill rate’.

Can your pneumatic presses be operated without an air compressor?
Yes, our pneumatic press line can also be operated with the use of a CO2 tank.

What is the warranty on your press?
Thin & Skinny has 1 year on all components with a lifetime warranty on the base and column units. All Cirum Series presses have a lifetime warranty on all components.

What can I expect as a yield?
Yields can vary based on the quality of material used.
Flower yields can range from 15%-30%+ for quality flower.
Concentrate yields can range from 30%-80%

What is the two-stage pressure system?
The two-stage pressure system provides the most control over your extraction process. This system allows your press to reach one stage of pressure, and then you can slowly increase to maximum pressure as you press the two-stage button. The amount of pressure output during the second stage is visible next to the button.

What is the purpose of the Pre Press?
The reasoning behind the prepress is to help provide a streamlined platform. Having a press dedicated to the prepping process allows for continuous production of the heat press.
