Re: vapor and liquid managment
- A VM still has two condensers. One, the reflux condenser, is in the
top of the column. Its job is to completely condense all vapour that
gets to it. Between the reflux condenser and the top of the column
packing is a take-off tube with a gate valve in it to control the
amopunt of vapour allowed to pass. This 'escaping' vapour is then
condensed in another condenser (usually a Liebig one) and this
distillate is the product.
I would thoroughly recommend purchasing the e-book "The Compleat
Distiller" by Nixon and McCaw. It will thoroughly explain all you need
to know (and more!). Available here http://www.amphora-society.com/
