Definition - What does Directional Flow mean?
Also known as directional fold, directional flow refers to the process of folding a piece of parchment paper to enhance concentrate collection during rosin pressing. Directional flow can cut back on the collection time. During this process, the paper is folded and shaped in such a way so as to direct the resin in a specific area.
MaximumYield explains Directional Flow
After the paper is folded, the resin is treated and pressed with either pressure or heat to create rosin.
One of the major advantages of directional flow is that it’s a simple and straightforward process, perfect for novices. For a better extraction, it is important to properly fold the paper in half, ensuring that both sides are even.
While this technique is quite effective for various products, directional pressing has been shown to be detrimental to flower presses due to the lack of rosin.
On the other hand, bubble hash releases plenty of rosin when treated through directional pressing. More advanced directional flow systems can even produce a quadruple flow.
