The dimentions for this parrot will cause surging. Even on a small home distillation system. The maths is all wrong...
- Take the foreshots off before connecting the parrot.

- Small bore copper filling large spirit chamber before the take-off. In the drawing it looks like 3/8" to me. Too small IMO.Maybe OK for 2 or 3 DPS, but I use a 4" still and take 6L per hour, it also has an atmosphere vent after the condenser...I have a drawing I'll post it up as soon as I work out how to...Hope it helps...
