when filling 3 ID inch PVC tubes with several pounds of granulated BP, i soon learned that Bentonite Clay is simply not cutting it. Bentonite easily cracks and i even once had my bentonite nozzle "crack" under the weight of about 2 1/2 LB BP and i lost about 72 hours of ball miling, $10 of chemicals, 2 Liters of pure alcahol (for granulation), and about 5 hours of granulating time. i now can see that Bentonite is simploy not strong enough to withstand all that weight, is there any other alternatives?

This should be titled powerful stupid instead of powerful nozzles. Do yourself a favor and ditch the PVC.

Here's some advice, stop being a moron.  The only safe thing about any of this is that it was a total failure.
