44594Vapour loss from large shotgun condensor/condenser.
- Mar 2, 2009Hi Crew,
on my POT still I have built myself a large shotgun to replace the
It has 17 x 13mm tubes of 225 mm long fed by a 11 litre per minute
water flow. This will pull out 9 kW of energy, ie the water
temperature increase and flow calculate to be 9 kWs.
However I have noticed during heating up phase from about 60C and
before the run really starts a steady stream of "fog" emanating from
the condenser with the occasional drip. The coolant temp is about 25C.
A few of questions.
Is there a laminar flow issue with 13mm tubes? Does this condenser
require more turbulence? How to reduce the amount of fog?
