Re: time question
- B-W was referring to area, so it's not an insignificant increase.
0.196 in^2 vs 0.110 in^2 = 77.8% increase in area (per inch of length for volume of the gas)
But I don't believe cross-sectional area is the critical factor. Surface area for condensation is what's important: 2*pi*r*l.
1.57 in^2 per inch of length vs. 1.18 in^2 per inch of length = 33% increase in surface area. (Same percentage increase as from 3/8 to 1/2 , not 25%)
Owing to other inefficiencies (non-linear nature of vapor condensation, etc.) and inaccuracy of measurement, I think a 25% increase in speed would not be an unreasonable expectation in this case.

1/2 tubing will make you happier, but for a good lesson test both.

Subject: [new_distillers] time question
ok I haven't run my my pressure cooker yet,but I have to ask this first...right now its a 16 quart with 3/8 copper tubing on it,as I'm on a budget...going through some of my shed I found a piece of 1/2 inch..how much would this increase my collection times ? gotta ask..thanks also for all the help I have been receiving lately too,most helpful
