introducing the 'heatbomb' * 6
    #3314778 - 11/03/04 02:33 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

hey shroomerites!

as ive recently had to construct a new inc and disliked a tit (since i simply dont need such a huge thing)
i came about this nice idea for small scale incubator heating and though of sharing it with the shroomerites!

introducing the heatbomb:



the heatbomb itself is a completely maintenance free heating system,
designed for small sized incubators - THE choice for ppl who do not want to worry about
evaporation of water or possible contams breeding in the wet air inside the incubator
if the used to have a fishtank heater in a open water jar or alike.

materials needed:
an aquarium heater
a plastic bottle that u can fit ut heater inside
silicone gel
duct tape
some boiled (distilled/germ free) water


how to assemble the heatbomb:
1.) its up to u to find one heater and a plastic bottle that
takes the heater inside without leaving too much space on the sides.

2.) once u got ur bottle and heater ready, wash off all the paper lables that
might stick on it and give the inside of the bottle a nice hot water wash
since it cant be bad to kill all the germs u may be able to kill.

3.) next, boil some water or take ur distilled water and fill the bottle up to the brim.

4.) now, insert ur heater, it will cause the water inside the bottle to splash over
since the mass of the heater forces it to, but its allright since that way
u dont leave any possible air inside (i, sloppily still did though :wink: )

5.) next, wipe the area around the top of the bottle dry and start to apply
silicone gel to where the heater enters the bottle, just apply a lot of it,
u want to have a good and waterproof seal.

6.) let this sit for a day to allow it to dry fully (silicone takes some time)

7.) now, apply duct tape over the top of the bottle and the heater,
covering the whole silicone seal as an extra 'anti leakage' precaution.

8.) wipe down the heatbomb with rubbing alcohol to sterilize it.

well, taht's it, there u got ut very own heatbomb, ready to use :smile:

the jars pictured were entirely incubated in the heatbombed incubator
and reached full colonisation within 10 days, its straight rye.

sure, it can never ever beat a proper TiT but for ppl who just need small
scale spawn its THE choice since it works like a charm and heats up
ur inc pretty fast :smile:

here some more pics for u, just for kicks:

typical heatbomb setup:


different view of heatbomb setup:


closeup on some heatbomb'd jars:


fully colonised heatbomb'd jars (after 10 days):


i hope some of u find this handy, i sure love it!
and btw, im proud to contribute my first 'tek' :laugh:
peace ohm :mushroom2:

I like it, very well laid out tek.

I will try this :smile:

2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

i can see that working out nicely, i like it becuase unlike the tit and the pickle jar tek you can simply lay it on its side and use low containers for you incubators, so it would be possible to use a lets say 6-8 inch tall container just tall enough for the jars and then it would be possible to slide under the bed and save that precious closet space for large fruiting setups. nice idea.

That's an awesome idea! :smile:

The only thing I would worry about is the water expansion from heating... could cause some leaks if your silicone job isn't up to snuff. Maybe turn the heater on and let it warm up to temperature before sealing it up?

nice idea ohmatic

Water hardly expands if heated from 70?F to 85?F.

And if you are really worried about this, simply squeeze some water(a few cc) out of the bottle before sealing.

i would also think that a larger bottle would radiate more heat, perhaps saving a little energy, if you're a hippy about that stuff like me :laugh:

a word of caution though folks, those heaters can melt through plastic, BE CAREFUL.  i'd say that a glass bottle would be better.

nice idea ohm!  :headbanger:

Glass bottle, great idea, Xistenz.

Yeah, this truley is a life saver to teenagers like me (17), I will soon have a fruiting chamber, complete with heat bomb underneath my bed.

Where can you buy a glass bottle nowadays? Foaf went looking for one to make something like this, but every single container he found at the grocery store, carrying any kind of liquid, were all plastic.

i'm positive that i could find a glass bottle in my local grocery store.

also, from another thread, plastics with a number 5 on the bottom (inside the recycle symbol) have the highest melting point. try finding one of those, i know juice containers are nice and thick sometimes too.

wow. this is a great setup. i needed a incubator for the small children running around my house earlier this year so i bought the two tubs and heater... but having a tub of water in my room wasn't working out.
going to try this one soon.

Actually, silicon conducts heat pretty well. Not as good as metal, but better than plastic

How about beer bottles? Also, I know milk sometimes comes in glass bottles. Mostly organic brands of milk do this.

Yeah! A Sobe bottle would be perfect.

Beer bottles wouldn't work unless you could find a wide mouth one... heater won't fit in there.
