      I dont know about N/S but I dont think the scourers are going to be a prob unless they were too tight to begin with. You should be able to breath easily through them

      G'day, I've just arrived at the halfway point through my second run.
      The first run was a real hassle.
      The temperature in my N/S would not stabilise, I adjusted the flow
      of takeoff to change the temperature.
      It started off with the temperature going up to 77.7C and sitting
      there, fine I thought, but as soon as I started to ease a few heads
      off the bloody temperature went up and then down again when I
      turned the tap off, this happened for about 1 1/2 litres, I'm thinking,
      was this just heads I have created?
      I thought maybe I had too many SS scrubbers in the column,
      therefore when I was taking off the heads, I was stopping the flow of
      condensate down the column, consequently the temperature rise.
      Anyway, I removed 4 scrubbers (of the 16) and the beast seems to
      be behaving now.
      I was wondering, were the 16 scrubbers too many for;
      a. the 1800W element?
      b. the one metre by fifty millimetre column?
      Or did I need to equalibriate for longer?
      Any comments would be appreciated.
      I would be very surprised if there was such a thing as too many
      scrubbers (without restricting the flow, that is)
      Regards,
      Tony Cahill
