Reflux still design calculator - corrected
- To those who use the interactive "Reflux still design calculator" at
http://www.geocities.com/kiwi_distiller/reflux_calc.htm , I've just fixed
it for some (more) huge errors (it was actually making alcohol - start
with 20L wash at 10% and end up with over 4L of pure stuff !, and the
column diameter calculations had been slightly out)
Its still not perfect, but getting better. Its slightly different (still)
from the Excel version that i use - see
http://www.geocities.com/kiwi_distiller/Theory.xls if you want it. Just
note that the Excel file is my working copy - it doesn't have any
instructions etc, and there never will be.
I've also changed the properties of the stainless steel wool scrubbers.
The area was 1000 m2/m3; its now 800
The voidage was 95%; its now 70%
This was done (change from a guess to another guess) in order to get a more
realistic flooding diameter
I've also updated the files for download, both at my site :
http://www.geocities.com/kiwi_distiller/download.htm and in the Yahoogroups
file area http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Distillers/files/.
