To calculate 10 percent of a number,
simply divide it by 10 or move the decimal point one place to the left.
For example, 10 percent of 230 is 230 divided by 10, or 23.

For those looking for a small-sized rosin press that can produce quality rosin, the Pure Pressure Helix is right for you.
Using the tried and tested design of its bigger brothers, the Pikes Peaks, the Helix gives you the same quality of rosin in a small package.
The Helix uses the trademark Pressware Technology of Pure Pressure, which lets you set the right amount of temperature and pressure in each press.
Don’t let its size fool you. Using its two (2) premium 6061 aluminum heat plates, the Helix can press up to 6 grams of flowers, or 10 grams of Kief or Hash in one go with up to three (3) tons of force using its lead screw twist technology.
While the Helix is a manual press, the Pressware Technology also gives you an accurate measurement of the amount of pressure exerted. Adjust pressure and temperature in small increments to get the right settings for your strains.
Once you have found your sweet spot, save it in 1 of the 29 presets slots so you can recall and get consistent results.
Standing only 21.4 inches tall, the Helix fits perfectly on your counter, and can be taken anywhere, without the bulk.
All Helix units are handmade* so you can expect topnotch quality control in every machine.
This trademark technology gives full control over the pressure and temperature in each press. Use the built-in touchscreen interface and proprietary software for total control and consistency.
Press up to 6 grams of flowers or 10 grams of Kief or Hash in one go, using its premium 6061 aluminum heat plates with independent heating for each plate.
Save and recall up to 29 temperature and pressure presets for your most used strains.
Standing only 21.4 inches high, and fits on the counter or in the trunk of your car.
Durable and easy to maintain
The Helix is made of powder-coated steel. Firmware updates and diagnostic tools for the controls are available through the Pure Pressure software for Mac and PC.

Which Material Should I Use?
Yields range significantly and depend largely on the quality of the materials used.
Trim: 3% - 8%
Shake: 8% - 15%
Flower: 15% - 30%
Kief / Dry Sift: 30% - 60%+
Bubble Hash / Hash: 30% - 70%+
*Adequate application of pressure is important to achieve optimal yields and these figures are based on averages tests. Results may vary and depend heavily on your material as well as the operator.
Which Micron Bag To Use?
Depending on your material, the proper micron bags are suggested but results will always vary.
For kief, dry sift, hash, and bubble hash, use a 36 micron or 72-micron bag.
72-micron rosin bags will offer higher yields compared to 36-micron rosin bags, but the 36-micron bags will provide the highest quality product.
For the flower, trim, and shake, use a 115 micron or 90-micron bag.
You will get the highest yield from a 115-micron rosin bag compared with a 90-micron rosin bag, but the 90-micron bags will give you more filtration and slightly higher quality product.
36 micron - Most filtration available, highest quality output rosin for use with kief, dry sift, hash, and bubble hash
72 micron - High level of filtration, increased yields over 36 microns when pressing kief, dry sift, hash, and bubble hash
90 micron - A higher level of filtration for use with flower, trim and shake rosin pressing
115 micron - Ideal level of filtration and high yielding for use with flower, trim and shake rosin pressing
What Temperature Is Ideal?
Lower temperatures (200°F- 300°F) = more flavor/terpenes, less yield, end material is more stable (shatter-like consistency)
Higher temperatures (300°F- 350°F) = less flavor/terpenes, more yield, end material is less stable (sap-like consistency)
How Much Pressure Should I Use?
There is no magic number for how much you need to press but most people use the formula of press pounds/plate surface area.
A 10-ton press = 20,000 lbs. If you have a 3"x5" plate = 15 square inch.
Hence, 20,000/15 = 1,333 PSI
*These numbers serve as a guide only. Results will always vary depending on temperature and material as well the press you choose.
