No odor drying

If no one can think of a compelling reason not to I'm Putting a damp rid in the bottom of a deep tote.
I'll dry on a screen about 2" over that and 3" from the top.
I've got a small computer fan I'll just lay on the screen to move the air around.
I even have a remote thermometer/hydrometer.
I think this should suck the air out fast.
Next a vacuum desiccator to go with my vacuum pump.

That's why I'm putting the hydrometer in
I'll probably skip the fan and ill work out a way to control
exposure to the desiccant

Oops its a weather monitor temp and RH.
I'm not looking for speed just smell.
This could sit in a house with no fan running.

I've done the box with a filtered fan
I'm just thinking out of the box :nomo:
It would be stealthy
Just a tote sitting there all sealed up.
I can watch the RH so it doesn't dry too fast.
I'll post the results.

drying too fast is not the problem.
Humidity jumped up to 90%
I spread the desiccant in the bottom on an aluminum pan.
45% at 69degrees and NO ODOR unless I open it for inspection.
I think this may be a keeper.
:idea:

ok one week dry
ran at 40% for 5 days up to 45 one then 35 when dried now it's in the jars.
This is a keeper I'll just buy the replacement desiccant next time.
