PurePressure's Rosin Presses: Tools for Commercial Operators & At Home Enthusiasts
If you are in the market for a rosin press or thinking about purchasing one, you likely have a lot of questions. In this article we'll start by exploring the basics of rosin and pressing. Then, we'll cover why PurePressure's rosin presses have garnered their outstanding reputation and we'll give you a quick rundown on each of our models.
Why Rosin Pressing?
Rosin is the highly sought after end product of extracting the most desirable parts of the cannabis plant by using pressure and heat. When isolated, cannabis concentrates offer much higher cannabinoid and terpene content than flower—thus their popularity.

Cannabis concentrates and extracts are nothing new, but the most common varieties typically require the use of solvents like butane, propane, or ethanol. Solventless rosin pressing produces concentrates that are true to the original terpene profile of the cannabis flower, with the final product being pure and chemical-free.
What Sets a PurePressure Rosin Press Apart?
Because of the minimal setup and affordable initial investment, rosin pressing is exploding in popularity. Rosin presses are easier to operate and cost less than traditional solvent extraction devices. Rosin is the hottest concentrate on the market right now. However, high demand doesn't always equal high quality.
Making solutions for solventless processing is our passion, and it's what we do for a living—not just a hobby. We have spent years tweaking, modifying and constantly improving on our USA hand-built rosin presses, and we are still doing so today. A common misconception is that brute force pressure is the key to producing high quality rosin. Through our rigorous testing, however, we have found that finesse and precision are much more important when it comes to end quality.
Our rosin presses are as versatile, user-friendly, and easy to operate as you'll find anywhere. No matter what material you want to squish—flower, sift, or ice water hash—you can easily configure a rosin press from PurePressure to your exact specifications and produce the best rosin around. Our four different rosin presses give different options that are accessible to anyone. Our consumer models are as simple to understand as our commercial models, and the accessory kits give you even more tools for your rosin press that you won't find elsewhere.
Additionally, a rosin press from PurePressure could end up paying for itself within a few months—even if you are just pressing for hobby at home. Whether you are selling a high quality rosin product commercially or simply making hash to save a trip to the dispensary, a PurePressure rosin press can be operated tens of thousands of times with proper utilization, cleaning and maintenance. Our rosin presses are highly durable, customizable and their variable control is unmatched.
PurePressure Rosin Pressing
There are four options to choose from when selecting a PurePressure rosin press. We offer two presses that are pneumatic and two that are twist-operated manual presses. All four are low maintenance and can produce premium rosin. Every one of our rosin presses comes with our full-color LCD touchscreen interface featuring our Pressware™ technology, making them highly customizable, simple to understand, and operate. There is no easier way to enter the wonderful world of rosin pressing than with our machines.
You can also save up to 29 preset recipes on the Pressware™ technology with all four of our rosin presses. They all are constructed by hand right here in Denver with powder-coated durability. Each of our rosin presses comes with a two year warranty that can be extended if you choose. Here's a rundown of our models.
Our Pikes Peak rosin press is an OG of the industry and was a revolutionary game changer from the start. You won't find a pneumatic rosin press that is easier to use or more reliable. This rosin press uses two aluminum heat plates with a temperature range of 0°F - 300°F. The Pikes Peak boasts five tons of force from the custom-built cylinder—which is completely free from oil and requires no maintenance. There is no guessing involved, as rosin press has a temperature accuracy of down to one degree.
This model is available in manual Dual Pressure and Automated Pressure Control. Both the manual dual pressure and the automated pressure versions of the Pikes Peak rosin press can press up to 20 grams of flower or 40 grams of kief at a time with ease and achieve consistent, precise results. You can also press up to 120 grams of hash with the Pikes Peak when you use our stainless steel wraps.
The Longs Peak rosin press is perfect for any commercial cannabis operation. Building off of the success of the OG Pikes Peak rosin press, the Longs Peak offers twice the processing power and sixty percent more force. The Longs Peak rosin press will take any operation to the next level and deliver some of the best end products you'll ever see. This industry-standard in rosin pressing is prized by commercial facilities—its output will keep your shelves stocked and your customers happy.
The Longs Peak uses two 6061 aluminum heat plates, which deliver a heat range of 0°F - 300°F. This heavy hitter is a game changer in rosin pressing, using eight tons of force. You can press up to 35 grams of flower or 70 grams of kief or hash with the Longs Peak rosin press, or 230 grams (or more) of hash if you use it with our stainless steel wraps.
Just like the original Pikes Peak press, the pneumatic cylinder on the Longs Peak press is handcrafted, custom fabricated, oil-less, and maintenance-free. The Longs Peak is also available in two versions—the Dual Pressure Control model and the Automated Pressure Control model. The Dual Pressure version uses manual pressure control and dual air regulators while the Automated Pressure version uses digital pressure control and a single air regulator. Keep in mind that you will need an air compressor to run the Longs Peak rosin press. The optional accessory kits will give you even more customization options.
The Helix 3 Ton Manual rosin press is a truly portable, one-of-a-kind device that is a great choice for at-home enthusiasts who want to press their own solventless concentrates. Weighing just 65 pounds, you can press your own rosin just about anywhere. The Helix will typically end up paying for itself after a few dozen presses or so. Not to mention, you will know exactly what to expect out of your Helix—a high quality, pure, and solventless product. You can press up to six grams of flower or 10 grams of kief or hash in every cycle with the Helix rosin press.
The two 4.5" x 2.5" premium 6061 aluminum heat plate assemblies deliver a heat range of 0°F - 300°F. Each Helix rosin press features our unique, precision-engineered lead screw twist press technology that gives you up to three tons of force. The user-friendly Helix is easy to twist, and even a beginner can get the hang of it in no time. The unmatched force-measuring load cell measures and displays the pressure of your bag in real-time, right down to as little as 10-pound increments. No other rosin press on the market offers this!
The Helix Pro 5 ton manual rosin press is the bigger cousin of the standard Helix model, offering 60 percent more force. The larger Helix press is still lightweight and can be easily moved by two people. This is a perfect choice for commercial operations to get started with the wonderful world of solventless hash. The Helix Pro has two 7" x 2.5" premium 6061 aluminum heat plate assemblies with independent thermocouples, delivering 0°F - 300°F of evenly distributed heat. You can produce up to 12 grams of flower or 20 grams or more of sift or hash per cycle with the Helix Pro.
The Helix Pro rosin press boasts up to five tons of force output. The Helix Pro's lead screw twist press technology is completely custom built and one-of-a-kind. Just like its smaller cousin, the Helix Pro is easy to operate, and has a force-measuring load cell that displays bag pressure in real-time, directly down to as little as 10-pound increments, which is so minute that even the most picky rosin presser will be pleased.
