Hello from Fresno

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Have been looking and reading around site for weeks now, thought I would say hi.  I have a New Braunsfield offset that is very difficult for me to adjust temps.  Have been reading about UDS and have started to build one.  My drum has liner, what a pain to remove.  Do you need to remove every spec of brown?  Thanks for all the information

Most lined drums are lined with a Resin Based Product , either LLDPE or LDPE and ignition factor can range from 400 - 600 degrees. Most resins are safe , But are Toxic when burning. I would clean as well as possible and then burn it out 3 or 4 times to be safe. And by the way Welcome to the Family and good luck with your UDS

Good to have you on board!  I don't have an UDS but have read some posts on here from people who are doing a build.  The suggestions that I have read have been to find someone local who does sandblasting.  Sounds like it does a great job of taking the liner off and saves a lot of time.  Have heard that it costs $20 -$30 to have done, sounds like it is well worth the price.
