Hello

A while back I asked a question about setting up a VM on a 3" column

rather than 2". There was some variance in opinion with regards to the

constriction of the vapour for turbulence purposes. (I note this here

only for the record, it's not really the focus of my question this time

around.)

Supposing that problem were to be solved in an acceptable fashion--I am

wondering about the Cross-flow condenser itself. Given that the

cross-sectional increase is 2.25:1 (3-squared over 2-squared)

* would I then want 2.25 times as much surface area in terms of

coolant pipes?

* if so, perhaps most simply implemented by using 2.25 times more

pipes of the same size (smaller pipes yield greater surface area

per volume than larger ones) and

* presumably this would mean a correponding increase in pump power...

(I assume I can sort out the question of the liebig adjustment without

too much problem using the handy calculator on the homedistiller site...)

Thanks
