      Hello 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
      off, right?

      (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)
