Yes, Fire hazard is definitely an issue with plastics. The bags will be encased within a lightweight concrete aggregate and structures will only be 1 floor.  There is a guy in my town with a machine to turn glass bottles into basically sand, maybe this could be an option?

Or to play it safe, install a home sprinkler system.

thanks!

Thanks for your thoroughness, I don’t know what I would have done without the responses from you!  All in all it’s going well, still having problems but will try some things tomorrow.  I went thru my entire control box and made sure everything was tight, which it wasn’t.

The builder sent a half ass, “ready to assemble” product and customer support was bad at best.  Still don’t have the hopper which was supposed to be sent.  Their photo on the bazar has Inkbird PID’s in the photo and ships with REX knock offs.

But the silver lining is that i have learned a lot.  I hope your projects are going well!!!

wow, thanks for all the input, I am slowly going thru all the responses and looking into them on my machine.  i bought some new band heaters but they are too big.  One does fit on the nozzle so maybe its not a bad thing.

The new heater works and I will try the other tomorrow even tho there is a size issue.  Looks to be that maybe i have some faulty band heaters or they went bad some how.

But with all the issues, I have been able to pump out some products; with PP, I have been able to do around 12 per hour.  I still have bad presses but am getting better.  With HDPE, I am at about 5-7 per hour and need improving.

All in all, I’m really happy to be doing this and I can’t thank you enough!

I will check the plate today. We only have 110V in Panama. My girlfriends father is an electrician, I will have him come over to help. Thanks to you guys who have responded. What a great community.

Yes, both sets of heaters reach temperature and stabilize. Thanks for your responses. I will try to find someone to come measure the amp output.

I changed the whole chain 2 times. I have added some insulation used for kilns to the bottom bands and that is helping.

could it be that the power source at my house is not sufficient?
