- Jun 3, 2009Hello Baker,
Thanks for the comments. Yes, longer is not a big deal, is it.
As far as I can see, the liebig is needed because all the X-flow does is
ensure reflux. Still need a condenser to deal with the vapours taken
(Someone correct me if I'm out to lunch. Actually, at the moment, I'm
out doing a stripping run on one of my MUM washes. Started it May 21st.
Last night, it was very slow, today quiet and down to 0.990. The other
one, with the slow BK-1, is still going at a reasonable rate)

> If you're not sure it will have enough capacity, make the tubes a bit longer. So long as the maximum water flow is not too small (small diameter of the tubes/low capacity of the pump) you will have the benefit of increased area of cooling surfaces, WITH NO EXTRA WORK (same number of tubes).
