Turning Off Pack and Hold…

This is a question similar to others I often receive…

If I’m using a DII process, why should I turn off pack/hold time when I am filling 98% during first stage?

My Response
Turning off pack and hold is a great way to verify your fill is properly established, especially when you document the fill weight.
This is typically done when you are establishing a process… or troubleshooting.
Additional Thoughts

Usually when I develop a process… I document the fill (short shot), pack (full with sinks), and then hold (gate seal).
I also like to take a picture of the 1st stage short shot to document the appearance.
