Default Sanke keg weight

I was wondering if anyone knows the weight of a converted sanke keg. I need to put it into beersmith and am too lazy to un-couple mine from my brew rig.

Also anyone come up with a good thermal sanke tun li?

It differs from make to make.
I have 3 different ones and they are all different.
I can weigh tomorrow if you don't have an answer.

Unconverted the kegs weigh between 25 and 35 pounds, of course you remove the diptube and put on some extra stuff like vlaves and such, but the actual weight varies, so you are going to have to weigh it.
