- Jul 16, 2004The large stock pot is such an ummmm, unorthodoxed design from what
I'm used to seeing on here that I feel as though i must be missing
out on the benefit of using the poat rather than something smaller.
3/8" diameter copper pipe will hold almost 2.5 lbs. of water which
isn't alot, but it does seem like it would be difficult to equally
distribute 50 ft of coiled copper pipe exactly...and thereby equally
distributing the weight of the cooling water.
Cutting slits in the tubes as mentioned sounds like a reasonable
idea....adding the hefty weight of marbles to a top heavy design
Looks as though ball valves were chosen for both the reflux and
distillate take off lines. Do others get as much control from these
as a needle valve? Seems it would be really hard to refine the take
off to a certain number of drops per second.
