Dessicant/Fan chamber plans
    #1461817 - 04/15/03 10:21 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I have some pickles that need to be dried, so I whipped up this little plan for a fan/dessicant chamber combo. Note that it is not to scale, the real chamber will be much smaller in order to maximize on minimum air space.



Has anyone done anything similar to this or see any flaws? The container will be airtight (or close to it). My theory is that the increased air circulation will move more air at a greater rate over the dessicant to obtain bone dry atmosphere while also fan drying the mushrooms.

your plan is flawed. Dessicant works by soaking all the moisture out of the air. IF there is no moisture in the air it will grab it out of the shrooms. If there is air flow at all time it will just be soaking moisture out of the fresh air blowing by.


Fan dry for 24 hours then move to a seperate dessicant chamber.

But if the fan is running in a small, closed air enviroment, won't the dessicant pull all the moisture out of the air and the pickles? There will be no fresh air, only dry recicrulated air from within the container. I think Tthe fan will only speed up the process by circulating the air and giving it more run in with the dessicant while drying out the shrooms by the fan principle.
