Hi all, done a cleaning run today on my new baby dragon.
Now I appreciate it will be different when its running with alcohol instead of vinegar, however it appears to me that there is a great deal of reflux dropping straight through the plates off the ends of the nuts on the downcomers and I cannot really see anything tracking down the little fingers meant to redirect the reflux, what do you think, have I put it together right, is it acceptable anyway.
I've come up with an idea for a simple device to assist with what I perceive to be a problem and that is a simple thin stainless washer about 1"diameter with a hole in the middle to match the bolt. Dish it slightly so its like a little umbrella and bolt it on instead of the little fingers, no reflux now can drop straight through the next plate. What do you think, is it a feasible idea or daft. Anyway I've ordered some to have a go, they were cheap so wont be much of a loss anyway.
I'll post a new video with the results when they arrive
By the way I know I've made a mess of the plumbing, I assume the flow restrictors would be better on the output side of the condensers and I cannot decide which way to plumb the dephlag, obviously counter flow is more efficient but it seems it must lead to airlocks, what the general consensus on this or is that a can of worms.
