temperature control; where and how?
- Happy New-Year to everybody (to start with)
I made this posting a week ago, but it didn't show up...?
I finished the work on my reflux still
Column 1 meter 42mm copper
And now i build myself a proportional temperature controller
With this i can control my electric cooking plate.
It works grate, but the problem is where should i put the sensor,
i planned it on top of the column.
But i understand that the temperature raises in the boiling vessel when the alcohol disapearse to about 90 celcius.
So should i perhaps put my sensor in the boiler?
Hmmm not so nice written as the first time but ok you all get the picture i hope
Another question is about the FILE section, i don't see any in this group
There is one by DISTILLING and SCA-DIST2 or something but not here or...
You can find al sort of things about distilling on www.about.com
search for (example) packing column or just distilling
and look here http://www.vff.de/englisch/index_e.htm
all kind of column fillings including surface and free volume numbers
