      Thanks Riku,

      Least im not the only one that found that out. Why I dont post there anymore.... But i still think using a copper straight thru with teflon tape for temporary connections is the way to go.

      Vino es Veritas,

As an example Amphora guys use NBR (IIRC) seals in the column of PDA-1 and I haven't heard anyone complaining about that. Countless Labmaster type stills have been built using rubber corks for sealing the column and in 20 years I haven't heard complaints about that either. Then again I have personal experience about polypropylene column that deformed in extended use while I've been using PP buckets as boilers for some five years now without problems.
