B17- HDPE container Size needed for wheels

Post by Willsbrokeoven » Fri Jan 08, 2016 6:46 pm

I am looking to buy a HDPE container to hold the B17 chemical and to be able to dip wheels into.

this is the size I was looking at
H-5067 Drum Overpack 32 x 42" 95 45 $189

I know I need a rinse one also.

Also how many gallons do I need to dip the wheel

theres a 5 gallon 15, 20, 30.

Guess you better start measuring wheels that you will do. There is a limit to what size I will coat and that might be 22" but like smaller ones. But you have to measure lip to lip.

You need to buy enough to drench the whole wheel and then you also have to fig a way to lower them in safe and get them out. Time to hold your breath while bending upside down I guess?

Some guys have rig set up to do that.

I like what I have and can lay some down and some I stand upright and then spin the over to finish. I am lucky and can use some sort of a pressure washer to clean them off but a lot of guys are not so lucky :(

Yeah I have seen guys use wire to lift it out of the barrel.

I'm only looking to do 19" and smaller

Yeah I ordered a 20.5" HDPE CONTAINER. They didn't tell me it was tapered so it was 20.5 at the lid and about 2" down. It measured 16 so the wheel wouldn't fit.

I just didn't want a Giant 55 gallon drum.

Ok that barrel you have the 65 gallon is 31" top to bottom?

Mine was tapered and I don't want to buy another one I canthink fit wheels in.

So, I have bought container and poured the b17 in, even with a mask I can smell it kinda like a sweet rubber smell. So from what it says this stuff is pretty bad for you to breath in and if you can smell it, thathe you don't have enough ventilation. So I moved them outside temporary until I figure out what i can do. Even with a exhaust fan and 12ft door open it left a odor.

Safe ? How our you guys setting these up.

The only mask than can be used with it is one with a fresh air supply just like used for sandblasting. Nothing else will really work.

My tank stays outside under a little open air shelter. I have a box fan hanging to the left of the tank so it blows air across and in front of me and it blows the fumes out back and not towards my shop. I do not use it all the time and just depends on how long I will be standing over it. I will just take a deep breath most of the time and do what I need as fast as I can.

B17 in time will eat away at an exhaust fan and to even use an exhaust fan then you need the B17 in an enclosed space with a door with louvers so when the fan is cut on then fresh air will come in and then the fumes pulled out. Same way a paint bay works but you don't need any filters. The air coming from behind you is called makeup air and the same thing is done when building a powder booth and helps control where your air is coming from so you can filter it. Can't always be done but when it can then you get less stuff that might be floating around and then getting on the item you are coating.

Thanks, yeah I am having a hard time because this stuff freezes at below 40F and I have it outside and it just snowed 2ft in my area so for me it's a summer time deal for me

Great find, I was just looking at the National Tank Outlet!!! Crazy prices considering there is almost a virtual no cost after initial costs on making a molded plastic injection item. I will definitely be looking at these!
