My main love in life is neutral spirits and I'm always trying to make it a little bit better. Wanted to see how everybody else is cleaning their carbon?
I am using coconut shell, I think that is supposed to be the best?
After each use I boil the carbon for 3 or 4 hours, then wash out with fresh water. Then I spread it on backing sheets about 1" thick and bake at 425f for 5 or 6 hours. How does that compare to what everyone else is doing?
When I run my stripping run and my spirit run I dilute to about 40% and pour through a 4' X 1.5" column of packed carbon. After my spirit run I put about 3 lbs of carbon in paint strainer bag and place that in 13 gallons of 40% for a week or two.
