I'm toying with the idea of making something a little different, I have a 2" boka section with a double wound 6mm coil inside off my old VM setup, it has a tri-clamp ferrel on the bottom so it's compatible with 2" SD tri-clamp products.
My plan is to add a 3 way 2" tri-clamp tee under the boka section, above my column, with the tee branching out to one side, sounds like a normal VM so far right?
Here's the different bit, from this side outlet I'm going to have a 45° 2" bend pointing upward, then the big baby dephlagmator and another 45° 2" bend so the output points sideways again.
This will connect to my product condensor, I'm effectively replacing my valve with the dephlagmator, the combined area of the 3 x 16mm tubes inside it is approximately equal to that of my old 1" valve.
If I can divert cooling from the dephlag to the boka coil I could maybe maintain the same level of reflux as I collect product, not sure if there's any mileage in this, it may not work but I'd be interested to hear what you guys think of the idea!
