Re: Making Neutral
- -Hi Dave/Ken thanks for that. As I said I usually turn to my tails receiver at 78.4.C but run it up to 92.C I have to agree though that it does get a bit smelly after that. Will call a halt at 86/87.C in future. I am running a VM rig at present with a crossflow head approx. 1600 packing height on a 30ltr pot with a 2200 internal element for boil, which I turn down to 1500 with a variac for the run. Thanks again for your comments.

> Hi Guys when I,m making neutral the temperature remains almost steady at 78.2 throughout the run. I usually start the tails run when my temperature rises to 78.4. Can you guys advise if this is OK or is it too early. Any comments advice will be very much appreciated.
