NEW VAPE ROSIN PRESSES FOR 2019
Starting late 2018, NewVape began listing the new generation of Rosin Press kits. These mark NewVape's evolution in the world of solventless extraction. The next generation of Rosin Presses represent a leap forward in engineering and functionality. These address the many shortcomings in the industry as well as a response to many suggestions and ideas from the community.
In late 2018 we were able to spend some time in Colorado in a friends farm. Through testing and squishing over and over again, we realized there were many issues we still needed to address. So with what we had learned from our previous designs and this new knowledge of techniques we came back to the drawing board, only to realize the answer had always been under our noses. We found answer in our trusty 5x10 Rosin Cage.
While analyzing our Rosin Cage, we once again realized that this device provided much needed stability to a DIY set up. This cage was designed to make any press better. Our testing was done with several Harbor Freight A and H frame presses that are readily available. We found that these presses had many faults and were not stable at all. But when you added the Rosin cage, those plates were always aligned! So based on that evidence, we decided to build a frame around the Rosin Cage. Only for this we decided to reinforce it even further by using thicker rods (7/8") for stability and a much more rugged spring set.
We consider the plates to be one of the most essential pieces of the puzzle when it come to extracting Rosin. That's why we have gone above and beyond to design a product that will last you forever. Stainless Steel Bi Metal Plates come standard with the purchase of your NewVape Rosin Press. It features a bi metal construction, most of the plate is made from 6061 aluminum and it is capped by a sheet of Stainless Steel. We believe this harnesses the best qualities of both metals, quick heat transfer from aluminum and even distribution and strength from stainless steel. The plates also feature carefully placed insertion holes for the heater cartridges (there are two to avoid hotspots) and a thread for the thermocoupler that is placed near the squishing surface for more accurate temperature readings.
This part of the equation is what separates the two lines of Rosin Presses. After much research, we determined these platforms to be the best choices for these applications and herein lies the explanation.
Harbor Freight 20 ton Low Profile Hydraulic Pump
The Tegridy line of Rosin Presses was designed with the home/recreational user in mind and it was designed around the Harbor Freight system , this is the most widely available hydraulic pump in the nation. We chose it mainly for its accessibility and its affordability. This is a $45 pump that is widely available in the U.S. It is an important part of our thought process to consider the customers time and investment when it comes to service. P.S. Say what you want about Harbor Freight. Darn, we've had our own run ins with their products. But consider this, the options are limited here. You can certainly try a Sears pump, or one you can find at Home Depot or maybe a pump you can find on amazon, they're all going to run you about the same amount of money, but what Harbor Freight has that they don't are retail locations and a consistent stock. (Sears filed for Chapter 11 and they are down to 400 stores nationwide, and while Home Depot does have many more retail locations, their stock is very inconsistent [so a pump you may find at one store may not be available at another]) We designed the Tegridy line to be very modular, so if anything happens with your hydraulics, you can remove it with 4 allen screws and slide in a new one.
The BVA line is designed around BVA Hydraulics. We find that this is a very reputable product and company, and we want to base our reputation on partnering with the best, especially when it comes to commercial applications. BVA has a lifetime warranty on their products and service centers widely available in the USA and worldwide. Part of the design philosophy of these Rosin Presses is YOUR time. These products are easy to service and maintain without you ever having to send the press back to us. If you ever have any questions about this, please call us at 888-361-1710.
We chose the Dabpress controller for this application. NewVape had been making our own controllers for a while, but for this application, Dabpress was able to knock it out of the park, they offer a great product for an affordable price. These devices are also serviceable because they are modular in design. If one of your heat zones goes out, you can simply pull it out and replace it with a new one. NewVape has a one year warranty for Dabpress PID Controllers.
