is there a max column length?
- Hi All,
Is there a useful maximum length of a reflux column.
Is it possible that the amount of heat available isn't enough to push
a useful amount of vapour up through an insulated column to an offset
head? I am talking about cooling just in the offset head.
I have been working out my reflux ratio by directly measuring the take
off and the reflux (which goes back through a removable tube). How do
I calculate the amount of natural reflux that occurs in the column
when no condensate is returned back to the top of the column.
