The All-New Sasquash Half Squash is the newest compact press from the Sasquash lineup. The first and the only press in their lineup so far to feature drip tech technology.
What is drip tech technology?
Drip tech allows the Sasquash Half Squash to lay flat horizontally on its sides to allow the rosin to drip immediately onto parchment paper as it flows out. This prevents any rosin from sitting too long on the plates, which leaves the end product to taste burnt and overcooked.
Thanks to the 5 tons of pressure (or 10,000 lbs) available to the Sasquash Half Squash and the 2.5" x 3.5" 6061 aluminum plates, the Half Squash is easily able to press up to 7g.
Which Material Should I Use?
Yields range significantly and depend largely on the quality of the materials used.
*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.
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 a 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 small and finer material
72 micron - High level of filtration, increased yields over 36 microns when pressing smaller and finer material
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?
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.
