I have an 8" 4 plate setup as well as a 4" 4 plate setup as well as 1.5m of 4" packed sections. Due to the shortage of GNS from the regular suppliers I've started doing sugar washes.
In order to maximise the output, i've been considering adding a 4" setup (plates / packed or plates & packed) with a 4" dephleg on top of the 8" dephleg that sits above the 4 8" plate sections.
I know it'll be a bit tricky to get the reflux balance right between the top 4" section and the lower 8", but the 2 reflux condensers would be controlled separately.
Wondering what your thoughts are on this idea?
I don't see a problem.
I'm assuming your aim is neutral.
But I'm drinking quadruple strength and oxycodone to try and manage chronic pain.
My thinking, as the vapour rises in a reflux still you have two things occurring:
Proviso... I'm flying off the cuff here and someone who cares to actually pay this some thought may actually come up with something better and completely contradict everything I've just said.
My sixpence worth ..... For packing you would need to run in the 4" side as packing requires greater velocity. This packing would be on top.
@mech interesting thought about the VM. need to think about that a bit.
Cheers @richard yes I always run packed sections at the top
Might simply have to try it & see what happens
Be advised your product output speed would most likely be reduced as going from 8" to 4" is a restruction
Cant remember the speed difference, think there is a chart around somewhere but tipping you will be running faster the 4.5Lph
been there, tried that.. not worth it... Who is ready to see Franken Dragon get built?
