RE: [Distillers] Vapor Management Still
>so the faster the vapor shoots past the side opening to the valve, theless likely it is that any vapor will find its way into that side opening.
Make it fast enough, and air will actually be drawn INTO the column, just
like fuel is drawn into a carburettor in an auto engine.
Do you think the following setup would work ? Eg make the path to the
distillate offtake a direct/straight-through one, whereas the path to the
reflux condensor requires a couple of turns on the way. That way when the
control valve was opened at the end of the total reflux period, there might
be some incentive for the vapour to venture that way, rather than being
drawn to the refluxing condensor ?
Maybe it instead needs a gate valve on the reflux side as well, so that you
could temporarily induce a bit of resistance on that arm, and encourage the
flow into the other side. You'd need a little care to ensure that you
never got to the stage of having both valves closed or offering too much
resistance (and hence pressurising the whole system), but thats managable.
- G'day Tony,the largest condenser should be the reflux condenser,if you are in proportion in your sketch then it is a bit dodgy.Regards,Ken.----- Original Message -----From: Tony & Elle AcklandSent: Sunday, 3 February 2002 14:30Subject: RE: [Distillers] Vapor Management Still> Do you think the following setup would work ?
I'll actually try attaching it this time !
