Re: Osmosis treatment with homemade hotvac

Please excuse the thread resurrection. Been looking over this and everything makes sense, except:

How do you vulcanize the two rubber mats together?

Re: Osmosis treatment with homemade hotvac

I didn't vulcanise the black mats i just bonded them together with butyl tape. The orange mats were 2 panels welded together with a continuous electrical element inbetween to form one mat.

hope that helps

Re: Osmosis treatment with homemade hotvac

Thanks Roger.

I'm going to try the rubber mats with 30W constant wattage cable that should get to touch temperature of 100C. If that doesn't work I'll then go down the custom mat route.

Cheers,

Terah

Go for it Terah, I had good results with underfloor heater cables sandwiched between to butyl-taped sheets of EPDM rubber sheets, i could those upto 70 degrees celsius though they took a their time, from memory they were 100W.

The custom made mats (orange ones) would go 0 - 100oC in about a minute and way more adjustable with the thermostatic controller.

Any problems, give us a shout.
