Well none of that stuff is really necessary in my experience. The drying technique I use is based around the rotary media separator.
I use the rotary media separator as a "spin cycle". After the pins are separated and the water removed from the rotary media separator, I leave the wet brasses in the rotary squirrel cage, throw in a dry towel and spin for 20-30 seconds. This removes 90+ % of the dampness.
I then repeat a second spin with another dry towel.
These 2 spin cycles will remove almost all remaining dampness. This is because the brasses are decapped, and moisture escapes from both ends of the brasses while spinning. Simply laying the brass out in open air will cause any remaining moisture to evaporate - usually in 10 minutes or so or less.
No need for any heaters, air blowers, dehydrators, ovens, etc., etc., etc.
I hope this technique works as good for you as it does for me.
