The setup i have been using is keg, thumper, 36" packed scoria, 3" cross w/ reflux condenser, 15 degree upward sloped arm with sliding arm condenser. The Column is a modified manu sliding arm condenser.
The small thumper has a 3" liquid depth and holds about 8 oz. of fluid.
Could i put the scoria directly to the boiler, then the inline thumper above the scoria/ packed column or will it matter...
I was thinking i would get my heat up the column faster and the reflux condenser would keep the thumper full of distillage then when the thumper is full it it runs back to the scoria through the downcomers.. for reflux...?
Never tried it in that configuration, and have never seen anyone with a thumper high up on the column..
edit: I guess the same principal would be to put one bubble tray or bubble cap plate over a packed column a reverse hybrid kinda set up...
