    Vacuuming your scrubber material before packing

    Anyone using this practice? Ideas on setup if you thought about it.


    Thanks

    I used LP air to blow out dust b4. Just left the lid off the scrubber and fed air in the bottom.

    Not saying it was a good or useful thing to do though. Too much could dry out the scrubber material and make it useless.

    Hey Tony,
    Talk to Gene Melton, he has a really slick rig for de-dusting Sodasorb. How is your sidemount meg coming along? Ted

    Use PVC, large open top that feeds to an elbow. the sorb fall straigh down but put a screen in the elbow that is horizontal. that end connects to a vaccum. Talk to Billy he made a nice one as well as Brett and Joel.

    Saw something similar, but was sworn to secrecy.

    I'm having a problem visualizing this, are you sure you don't mean a "Tee" instead of an "elbow"?

    What I saw was 2" PVC about 3' long. Held vertically (plumb) with cross in the middle with 2 short 45's pointed up. A vacuum cleaner hooked to one of the 45's while the sorb was poured in the top. It sucked air and dust through as the sorb was poured in. Worked like a champ. Was not allowed to take pictures.

    I'm with you. So a straight section of 2" PVC with a X in the middle with a 2" 45 fitting attached to the T fitting. How far was the 45 fitting from the center of the X.
