Waiting for the delivery of the SS wool from the US to test this configuration. Starting at the bottom is the new 4x3x3 Torpedo TW (thermowell). It will have just one 4" bubble plate for the first test run. Above that are 2 sections of 3" TC pipe x 510mm (20") that will be packed with the wool. Hard to know if 40" of packing will be enough without actually running it. Then is a new fitting - a reduced height 3x3x2 Tee TW. Above that is the long 3" dephlegmator. Clamped to the 3x3x2 TW tee is a 2" TC butterfly valve that leads to a 90, a long product shotgun condenser and to the parrot assembly. I will be quite pleased if this rig produces 3.8 liters (1 US gallon) per hour of clean neutral azeotrope.
