Re: [Distillers] Re: Looking to source 8 " dia. Cu pipe and glass outer shell for a Cu coil condenser
- Hi Rufus,The plates are all brazed in place and all have bubbler caps, as it stands I can drain one plate at a time so I can keep those condensed fractions sepperate should wish to do so.In fact I could use the main drain line (vertical pipe outboard of the valves) as a kind of poor condenser and so take of vapour at almost any given plate. I wonder if I could still do that (for the plates above the feed in valve) when running in continuous mode. I guess I'll have to have a play with the plumbing. <grin>I haven't had a chance to test her yet, but will as soon as the last few parts arrive.P.

Thomas et al; I am impressed with your effort. Can you explain the
type of plates you are using? Are they bubble cap or perforated? Have
you had to clean them yet. When you fabricated your column how did you
attach your plates? Sorry for all the questions but I think you done so
good work here. As for your drain lines have you considered putting a
tee and a bleeder valve on each? You could then test your column at
each plate and use the liquids for blending.Y! Toolbar
