    I use one of these. I use it for my portable fish finder, but it works great for the blue bowl.

    Re: best battery for a Blue Bowl

    itd,the best battery for the blue bowl would be the lightest one able to do the job.i usually run my bowl at home,and just hook it to my battery charger.in the field you could use your truck battery,atv battery,perhaps a solar panel charged battery in camp.i only run -30 mesh material in the bowl.everything 30+ goes to the genie,miner model wheel.which i also run at home mostly.these units themselves are very portable,but properly using them requires buckets,tubs,5 different screens,etc.so in most cases i just bring cleanup concentrates,or marked sample bags/buckets home for testing.bowls and wheels only work well in controlled enviroment.and materials right out of nature need their plant/tree oils removed.(lye,muriatic,simply green,whatever)then jet dry in recirc. system.not a capfull per gallon,3 or 4 drops per gallon of water.you dont want sudsy water in the recirc. tub.the electric bilge pump should be isolated from the material discarded by the bowl,or wheel.heres how i run mine. same way with blue bowl,bowl over bucket,water flows into mortar tub and supplies clean water to the pump.problem i have seen with desert fox wheel,no way to keep the pump strainer clean.at least in its stock configuration.this all applies to bowls or wheels.

    P63-Just hook up another 5 gal bucket-drill 2 holes-1 in each bucket and use pressure fitings and a short run of pipe to the 2nd bucket-then pump outta #2 and dump tailings into #1 and you will stay much cleaner--tons a au 2 u2 -John

    have seen those 2 bucket setups.they work well.in the picture above,my pump is in the black tub,inside bottom half of a plastic jug.wheel tails go to the white bucket.and since i have dissolved/rinsed away all clay and organic stuff,pump sock stays real clean.i usually do have a 2nd bucket in there,and run wheel and bowl at the same time.bowl with its own 750 bilge pump.less boring that way.2 birds etc.bad weather the whole thing sits near my woodstove.

    well,when working dredge/highbanker cleanups,this has already been accomplished for the most part.high pressure blaster nozzle,hopper spray bars do most of this.with samples now,these are often mostly clay/root mixtures.easiest way,throw each sample bucket,singly of course,into my marlex drum cement mixer.add a few rocks,turns it into a slurry.stop mixer,let it settle out.then slowly rinse till overflow clear.put sample #1 back in clean bucket,while #2 being done,#1 in bucket stripped of oils,lye,muriatic,or even simply green.after carefully rinsing that,time to classify.(screen)1/2 inch,1/4 inch,12 mesh,20,30,50.70 and100 if feasible.especially if the sample came off my impact attrition mill.that always goes at least 100 fine.yeah theres that clay be gone stuff,but would need a drum of it..others have had success drying the clay stuff out,then pulverising it.sounds like an option,time permitting.if only a small sample or two, just a bucket plus elbow grease.

    Re: best battery for a Blue Bowl

    I'm working with hard rock only. I run it through my crusher and screen it to 30-, 50- and 100-. To get most of the waste out I have to mix it in a bucket and pour off the dirty water (carefully of course). This is a huge pain in the butt. If I put it in the blue bowl without washing it just makes the water muddy in no time. Maybe I should try running it through a sluice first to wash out most of the waste.

    We use our horse trailer battery. (we also use a small solar panel hooked to the battery, sometimes).
