Sorry for the delayed attention @dbdchocolate; between the onset of summer, family vacations and business the whirlwind made a longer orbit to come back to than usual!
Thank you for your detailed response. As I mentioned we've been in production with a really small setup for almost 5 years mainly if not exclusively for bonbon molds. We've used it in larger production of sculptings but as you know a small setup doesn't lend itself to coverage and the immature spray delivery is really a one trick pony. Hence my desire to find some greater understanding and breadth of the toolset.
Like you also said in compressors our 1/8HP was cute, but the longer we've used it, the longer we've had it on due to project size scaling, the more it shows so many weaknesses so I'll definitely look at something 1HP oriented. The size of that may be a challenge but we'll see.
We're in the Southeast here so humidity ranges from 60%-90%, the Summer can be a beast for us to stay in control of--especially when it comes to products like toffee--wooowhee hydroscopicity! hehe! We aim to keep the temp between 69'-72'--some days thats harder than others. A new production site is somewhere in the future.
Looking at the Grex lines they make quite a few product offerings. Would you have any suggestions within their lineups for gravity, siphon, and bulk?
Thanks @DiscoverChoc for moving things along, sorry for afk'ing far far too long on this.
