after all i purchased the newport i didnt find vector...
Most people around where I am use NIBO to do their runs and it makes nasty crackly oil with a bad aftertaste. I buy cases of London (which as I learned from a distributor; is the exact same product as Colibri rebranded) every couple of months and save quite a bit of money that way.
BURNZOMATIC 35% N-butane 65% isobutanes $3.98 at home depot in US
Vector is 18% propane and "filtering" does nothing to gasses
As for crackle, Vacuum purge your oil folks (while it is warm enough to just slide around your container)
Are you talking about the stuff they sell right next to their torches?
Ja, its not super-critical co2 or hexane but it get the job done well with no residue. Test it on a mirror by spraying it for a couple seconds, then let the frost melt look for any residue that is not water. Whatever butane you choose just remember to look up it's MSDS.
Is this the right stuff?
As I don't have a vac I'll probably purge by heating in a pan of water or with my LSV so I'd like to make sure I get the right stuff. Any help is much appreciated.
Hm, I can't get to that specific auction listing, but I would assume that it is geniune colibri being sold.
This is what the cans I use look like for reference:
It looks like this so maybe it's not genuine.
I guess the 90ml cans might look different from the 250/300ml cans but I'm just not sure.
Those are legit, that is the old can design from a couple years ago though.
Its probably just a stock photo since its on ebay. So thats just a representation.
Since I can get the 250ml cans of Newport for the same price as the 90ml cans of Collibri I just wanted to ask if anyone had used both brands and noticed any differences? I'd rather not pay nearly three times the price for something if I don't have to.
Also does anyone have any tips for judging when you've put enough butane through the material? I'd rather not put more butane through than I have to so I can minimize contaminants.
Cant say about the brands, but best way to tell if your done is put ur finger in the exit stream. If its sticky/tacky after ur finger dries then spray a bit more, if its clean there would be nothing left.
Hey, I thought i'd add another one to the list. I have been using it for a few weeks now and have had nothing but the best results. Whip-It (the same people who make the chargers) now have Butane. The one I use is the Premium (best one).
1) it comes in 400ml cans (more than all the others combined)
2) it has no impurities
3) it is backed by a big company, not just some small no name brand
I would take a moment to look into it, it's new.
I've posted a pic of the packaging so you can spot it.
thx for the update caliwabo, unfortunately due to new rules (by new i mean like a year ago or so) i cannot edit the front page.
but I'm glad to hear you found another good brand for the uk/eu members
Oh no worries, I just thought i'd share it with the world. It's a UK product but a San Francisco company is selling it. It is available in the US and UK, however I think they are looking for distributors. If you know anyone recommend it!
Was using newport, then did a trial with colibri, now returning to newport. I had nothing but good results with it. The colibri was more expensive, but I found it less efficiently then the newport ones(seemed to get less pressure in my tube?)...
