Ball Oven vs. Detox?
on: December 10, 2017, 12:28:17 PM
For those folks who have experience with both, do you feel that one does the job better than the other?  Or is it more an issue of speed (i.e. the Detox does the job in less time than say the Innovate Revivor Oven)?

Has anyone gone as far as putting a ball in a Revivor Oven until it stops bleeding and then putting that same ball into a Detox to see if the Detox can extract any more oil from it?

Detox is all of the above, much better, quicker, and safer.  We did our own internal testing as well and there's zero contest between the Detox and other methods.

Although we have used both, our current method is the Detox.  In my opinion it's somewhat faster, but the real benefit is that the ball goes into water heated at 120 degrees vs. 140 or higher with the Revivor, or the like. 

I believe both methods to be safe, but a ball not heated as high would have a faster "cool down" time in case you wanted to resurface afterwards.

Ball oven for the ball; Detox for the bowler.

Sorry.. couldn't resist.  :P ;D
