Re: Element question
- It's hard to use when it got accidently left behind in Sligo, in a box marked "IMPORTANT STILL STUFF" put in caravan first. Along with a load of turbo yeasts wine making gear and stuff. I think it was ousted when it came down to where shall I put my box of shoes. And it was oh I'll just move that box outside a moment. (This women obsession with shoes and it's the same in every country I've ever been to they salivate when they see a shoe shop/store and all common sense goes out the window). But I digress. I'll get the box when I go back for a visit and get all my power tools as well.

And with my 240volt x 850watt element on my valved reflux still on full reflux it will keep my 25 litres wash ticking over and collecting heads and hearts at one litre an hour and at the onset of tails I plug the 240volt x 2200watt element in and collect flat out into the tails jar right up to 96 C
