OK, time to make a start on a steam stripper myself.
For the moment I just want to build a working model so I'll do so at the lowest cost using as much of what I have lying around as I can.
Since the bulk of what I have is 2" the column of the body will be 2"
Since I already have a keg boiler, I'll use the keg boiler with a couple of 3.6kW elements.
I'd like to be able to start-up and go into full reflux while I figure out what the hell I'm doing.
The L-port valve was one way but it doesn't allow me to run with partial reflux return so I'll have to give that some more thought.
The image is too big to fit onto a single page so I'll show the boiler section and the top section separately for now.
Note the lack of safety/instrumentation/pumps etc, all to come later. I've allowed room for them just didn't have the time to add them just now.
Let me know your thoughts.
