watch the staurolite dry.
I got a near full pallet of Powerblast LS with the used Clemco pot I bought over a year ago. Unfortunately I had no room to store the media inside so even though it was covered in plastic and a tarp, it got wet.
Pic below gives you an idea how wet it is, the bags just disintegrate when you try to pick them up so I cut one open, scoop out the media and pour it into a 5 gallon bucket. BTW the scoops you see work great and are perfect for scooping out of 5 gallon buckets. Found them on Amazon.
And here's how it gets dry. I screen about 2-3 bags at a time into the mixer, fire up the torpedo heater and let the mixer spin for about 10 minutes. At 180 degrees the staurolite is dry and I dump it into a bucket and transfer it into the 30 gallon plastic barrels behind the mixer.
I have about another 4 hours to go. :wallbash:
