Drying chamber construction
    #3681371 - 01/26/05 02:55 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I was pondering about drying chambers, and was wondering if anyone knows if a chamber has these parameters, a tub bottom surface area about a little over 1sq foot lined with Drierite, how many layers of mesh screen of shrooms will it effectively dry in less than 24 hours?

If you're doing layers of screens I think you may want to look into getting some air circulation in there somehow. Somebody had a post about a drier that is expandable, they made out of a computer fan/hose/tupperware. I'll try and find a pic, its pretty simple and inexpensive

First off, you are planning on using a plain fan for 24 hours before the desiccant, right?

How much depends on circulation, how thick you pile them. I think you are going to run into a problem with just one chamber since there isn't going to be the best circulation. What the pics I was looking for show an even flow to the whole layer, which would be more efficient that a single chamber fan thing. I couldn't find the post I was talking about but I still have the pics. (I hope whoever posted it doesn't get pissed)





With that type of setup, its expandable, more tupperware layers, bigger fan, more dried shrooms.
Another method that is good uses home ac/furnace filters stacked on top of each other with a larger fan blowing thru. Not the most stealth approach but it works very well.

I'd say you could probably dry as many as you can fit in there without obstructing airflow. Just make sure you put enough desiccant in there to handle it and it might just take a little longer, but they should all dry. And as suggested, a food dehydrator would be a wise investment.

do you fan them at all beforehand?
with winter, and the r/h down so low, i couldn't tell who was accomplishing more faster: the desiccant chamber, or the output of my hepa's fan.
