Look back a half dozen post and you'll see this being talked about.  But it give me a chance to pitch our member Rollo (Charles) who sells these and will give a small discount to members here.   :thumb:

What are folks using for drying?  Vacuum or fan?

I bought a 3M 963E air ionizer a while back that I'm thinking about using for drying purposes.

I like vacuum.  That way particulates in the solution are removed.  If you dry, they are deposited in the groove.  I use a basic Nitty Gritty that I already had.

Yes, removing the liquid+particulates in solution with a vacuum RCM is absolutely necessary ... unless you have added a pump & 1 micron filter setup to your US tank!   :)  The filter removes the crap in solution - so it no longer is deposited in the grooves.  Which means you have to only get them dry, somehow.

Some people air-dry them in a dishwashing rack; I think this allows dust to settle on them - so I use the Dryer Cube from ultrasonicrecords.com for this (with a filter on the fan's air input hole).
