Freezing material to preserve oil quality

#1

Might be a silly question but Someone was telling me that if I’m planning on using fresh Shake and it’s going to be sitting around for more than a week I should freeze it. And then when I want to use it take it out redry it and then run it I thought this was the silliest thing I have ever heard. I get the idea of freezing it to preserve the oil but there has to be a better way than letting it condensate and redrying I feel like we redrying it would damage it more then it’s sitting out for a month.

How long can I leave fresh shake out before the oil quality starts to degrade?

Why are you drying if freezing fresh, if you want live you wouldn’t dry… BTW I store all my material in 5 gal vacuum chambers now adays, at full vac…

If u want to run dry material, process to it’s ready to run, then freeze under vac for no moisture, if you have to store for later that is and don’t prefer ice crytals on it
Only store fresh if u plan to run live, then blast it frozen

I don’t do this anymore bc I have the time to run it all now…

But if my intentions was live, and I needed to store for about month, then yes freeze without atmosphere
