The Original Resinator Cryo-Trim process utilizes liquid CO2 to allow material to be trimmed to perfection using durable nylon mesh screens instead of easily dulled blades that require frequent sharpening or oiling
The Original Resinator’s patented Cryo-Sieve® process utilizes liquid CO2 to enable any operator to quickly and gently remove the trichomes from sugar leaf, trim, or buds without damaging them.
Ice Water Washing
The best part about using an Original Resinator bubble machine is that any type of starting material can be effectively processed into ice water hash.

Using Co2 with The Original Resinator on DRY/CURED material has no adverse effect. Co2 is hydrophobic meaning it repels water. Co2 also displaces oxygen. These factors play a role when processing naturally cured biomass. Once removed from the Resinator the biomass will normalize within minutes. It will inherently take on the humidity from the localized environment so we should be mindful to maintain ideal operating temperatures and relative humidity levels.
We recommend that you start with a 150 to 200 micron bag (depending on strains and needs) and gradually reduce the screen size according to the gland concentration you want. Available screen sizes range from 25μm to 400μm (and even 600μm). As always, there are different types and sizes of trichomes. The morphology of these glands mainly depend on plant genetics, so we can find high quality glands of up to 150μm, and ranging as high as 500μm, and others measuring the opposite end of the spectrum even less than 50-25μm. (Even lower when using color remediation or charcoal filters with things like ethanol extraction for short path distillation.)
To obtain a clean and professional extraction, we should try to recover those glands measuring between 75μm and 100μm (but up to 125μm), which normally yield the best quality. If the screen sizes are smaller than the collected glands, than the dry sift extraction will also be smaller (the used screen size mainly depends on user preferences).
It’s only the use of liquid Co2 which allows us to work with the plant biomass in its Live’ WET/UNCURED state. This is extremely helpful for a myriad of applications. Please be mindful that when working with fresh frozen or Live’ applications it is vital to “maintain the cold chain”. Once the plant has been frozen and dropped below the freeze rate of 32°F the cellular wall of the plant ruptures. This leads to oxidation and discoloration if biomass was left unattended or allowed to thaw above that same 32°F temperature point. When working with Live’ material we can use a deep freezer to suspend the biomass in a frozen state.
Not only does a deep freezer solve a problem where a bottleneck occurs when dealing with freeze dryer capacity, but it acts as a staging area as well. This allows for complete harvest of a crop while awaiting availability of technicians, freeze dryers or extraction equipment prior to processing. When properly stored under a deep freeze the flower will remain suspended “frozen in time” until we are ready to process, for up to a year if stored correctly. If going from a fresh frozen state to a hydrocarbon extraction, being that there is no adverse reaction with water, the biomass can be processed directly out of the deep freezer into a closed loop system for immediate extraction. When going from a fresh frozen state to a solventless application we must use a freeze dryer and the lyophilization process where we sublimate the water as opposed to traditional means of drying where evaporation is employed.
H2O Extraction (Ice-Water) - Bubble While You Tumble
The OG Ice Water Wash base model kit includes everything you need (except ice water) to get started:
Ice Water Washing Throughput: 48 dry lb\day 144 wet lb\day
A clean, rich concentrate has so many fantastic benefits. It’s almost impossible to explain them all in words! And words are a problem when you’re talking about the cleanest type of naturally-made extractions, because there are so many different phrases used to describe the same thing.
People can’t agree on whether to call it bubble, ice-resin, ice-water resin, full melt, water-extracted resin, ice resin, cold water extraction resin, or whatever comes to mind.
Pure water extracted resin has all of the benefits of a concentrate and it doesn’t contain solvents or other chemicals that you may find in butane, isopropyl and other forms of solvent-made concentrates.
Bubble Hash is resin made by placing dried flowers and plant clippings in iced water and “washing” the material to gather high potency resin glands for use as a concentrate.
When you isolate resin glands from other material plants produce, you get the purest dose of high quality resin that can be derived without using solvent-assisted extraction. When you use iced water to make bubble hash, you’re using temperature, stirring, and wet sifting to isolate the resin glands. There’s no butane, C02, or alcohol solvents to worry about…and no explosions either. Most people who’ve heard of water-made ice-resin are familiar with resin bags and bubble. Long ago a bubble-making methodology was popularized involving micron bags that have different micron sizes of screens. The bubble production process involves putting plant material in a “work bag” along with plenty of ice, then stirring and settling the mixture for a period of time.
After that, you’re gently squeezing the mixture through a screen built into the working bag so a slurry of ice water and resin glands travel through the screen and into a stacked set of other bags that have different sized, progressively smaller screens. After you’ve squeezed all the water and resin glands from the working bag, you discard the plant material in it, although some resin makers will rewash or rescreen that material to get as much out of it as they can. Then you work through each remaining bag or screen size, squeezing, or in our case tumbling, and the water-resin slurries out so it goes into the bags from out of our Resinator Chamber.

Q: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OG AND THE XL MODEL?
A: They are identical in function. The only difference in our two models comes down to capacity.
Q: WHAT IS THE CAPACITY OF THE RESINATOR?
A: The OG has a 3 lb. capacity while the XL has a 14.5 lb. capacity when extracting with CO2. Now keep in mind, that is when using sugarleaf, as opposed to big fans and water leaves. If you were to use dry ice for example, you would have to make room for the ice so the capacity of biomass would decrease accordingly. When using your Resinator in a H2O application or as a trimmer, the recommended amount is half that of our max capacity.
Q: HOW DOES CO2 WORK TO TRIM?
A: When you load your machine with flower, you can add liquid Co2 into the chamber and achieve very cold temperatures. This allows the exterior leaves to become brittle, fracture off of the flower and fall through the mesh screen without damaging, bruising or compromising the integrity of the flower. When trimming with CO2 we recommend “ice-cream” temperature. That’s between 10°F and 30°F. When prepared properly, you can trim a pound a minute.
Q: WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY MULTI-USE?
A: The Resinator machines are the only one of their kind to have a trim feature, an extraction feature as well as a water-bubble wash feature all with one machine. Switch out different parts or accessories to utilize the different options. This allows us to instantly freeze, fracture & extract trichomes and resin glands from cured and uncured flowers and plant material. We achieve 20-40% returns in as little as 2-10 minutes. Each Resinator purchase includes everything that you need to do all three functions. That’s what we mean by wet, dry, flash freeze all-in-one.
Q: WHAT TEMPERATURE IS NEEDED TO ACHIEVE RESIN EXTRACTION FROM FLOWERS OR TRIM?
A: Sub zero temperatures (temperatures below zero) are preferred when making any extraction. When we add liquid CO2 into our center chamber which lets us reduce temperatures to below -65° Fahrenheit. Refer to our extraction guide for exact temperatures and run times.
Q: WHAT IS LIVE RESIN EXTRACTION?
A: Potnecy levels are at their highest in their live or uncured state. Sub-critical extraction allows you to work with live or uncured plant matter in multiple applications including Live resin, live rosin, live ice wax, and live trimming. Live resin is simply a term meaning uncured or raw.
Q: WHAT DO I DO WITH MY “TRIM” WHEN I AM DONE USING THE TRIM FEATURE?
A: Once you are finished using the trim feature with the Resinator you can change your screen from the mesh trim screen to any one of the extraction (micron rated) screens. Add your trim to the chamber and follow the extraction guide recommendations for suggested run times, speeds and load sizes. Please note: TOR owners should change to the extraction screen and start extracting only if they have any needed permits or licenses for such activity.
Q: WHY DOES MY MACHINE/MOTOR KEEP TURNING OFF?
A: The motor has a safety feature that stops the motor and requires a reset (unplugging, allowing to reset and plugging back in) in order to resume operation. To keep this from happening make sure that the drum comes to a complete stop before switching from forward to reverse, or vice-versa.
Q: WHAT MICRON SIZED DRUM SCREENS COME WITH A MACHINE PURCHASE?
A: The kits are prepackaged with a 1/4” mesh trim screen and one each of the 200?m,100?m, and 75?m screens. Each Resinator purchase also includes a set of resin collection bags in 200,100, and 75um. We offer 25?m, 50?m, and 150?m drum screens and Resin Collection bags for purchase on our website.
Q: IS THERE A WARRANTY?
A: We offer a 1 yr limited factory warranty. We stand behind our products, so if you experience any issues please call us. We are here to help. Please be sure to register your product with us or go to “Product Registration” on our website to have the best warranty options available to you.
Q: WHEN USING CO2 FOR TRIMMING DO YOU LOSE ANY OF THE POTENCY PROFILE?
A: We experience less than 1% total potency loss when trimming with CO2. That is better than most hand trimmers. We have Certificates of Analysis on our website. We are always updating with additional data.
Q: CAN WE WASH SCREENS WITH ALCOHOL? WILL THE MATERIAL CRACK?
A: Yes, you can wash with alcohol. 99% and 70% are both effective with no cracking or damage. We also have customers using ethanol with great results. We recommend a rinse in/with water and H2O2 afterward. But as with any screen or filter, eventually over use and time they will need to be replaced.
Q: HOW MUCH CAN WE DO WITH THE SAME CO2 TANK WITH OG VERSION COMPARED TO XL?
A: It would seem like you might use less CO2 with our smaller OG model, but you have to quantify the capacity you are running with an XL to see that CO2 use is more efficient with the XL unit. When running the OG you only need to use half as much CO2, however when running the XL you could run five times as much material. So for example with the OG model you would get approximately three runs with the OG using a 50 pound tank where as you will get two runs using the XL. But you would only get to run approximately 9 pounds of material in the OG where as you would get to run almost 30 pounds with the XL in that equation. Refer to CO2 Frequently Asked Questions for more detailed information.
Q: WHEN WE DO THE CO2 EXTRACTS, HOW LONG DO WE NEED TO ROTATE?
A: Pending the application we spin for a variety of time frames. Our Extraction with CO2 video, for example, we ran for 60 mins because we were demonstrating a quantity extraction. This is popular among distillate applications because the color is pulled out through SPD and fractional distillation techniques. When rosin or live resin is the application for example, we may only spin for 5 -10 mins.
Q: HOW DO YOU KEEP THE TEMPERATURE IN THE CHAMBER SO LOW?
A: By adding liquid CO2 not only are we reducing the temp to as low as -65°F, which is considered a subcritical extraction, the oxygen has been displaced. With the oxygen displaced, which typically takes 20-25 lbs of co2 or roughly 1/2 of a standard 50lb tank (with a siphon tube), it generally takes about an hour for the XL unit to normalize in temp. Less CO2 means that the Resinator temperature will normalize faster.
Q: DO WE NEED TO OPEN CO2 TANK OR ADD A LOT MORE CO2 DURING THE PROCESS?
A: No. Only when not fully flash freezing to the subcritical temp zone will more co2 be required. Which ultimately would require the same amount of co2 anyway so we just add up front. If more CO2 is required to maintain desired temperature range, all that is necessary is a microburst -or 5 second shot- of CO2 in small intervals.
Q: WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL PRESSURE IN PSI IN YOUR CO2 TANK?
A: Co2 unregulated comes out of the tank at about 800 psi. You could manually regulate with a 1/4 turn for example but that is not necessary. We don’t have a closed loop system so the pressure in Resinator chamber does not build to any point where it is of concern. Note that temperature is paramount to pressure, so as long as liquid co2 is adding it is adequate.
Q: WHAT MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED WITH THIS MACHINE?
A: The only regular maintenance would be cleaning your equipment and occasionally replacing your screens as with any filter or screen. If the need for maintenance should arise, all parts are easily removable and replaceable.
