Newly Improved SS Condenser

Post by billythekid » Thu Sep 12, 2019 9:08 am

..."This now incorporates a spiral structure modification inside the condenser called fins. The outer water jacket tube of the condenser has been modified internally to increase surface area with the inner distillate arm allowing for better cooling performance. Fins allow the cold water to pass through with some turbulence increasing surface area within the inner tube. The cooling sleeve has been extended back towards the temperature probe which gives the extra cooling length. This new condenser arm has improved the overall efficiency (heat transfer) of the Alembic condenser, allowing for a colder spirit collection temperature."...

Nope. I'm a milkman and I live in California. But thanks for your compliment. It would be GREAT to work for a HBS.

Were you thinking of this as an upgrade?

Not immediately. First posted for information that everyone might want. But, I may get one in the future.

I have the original. I'm not convinced that fins to make the water move more slowly (I assume) will be of any benefit to the pot stilling process.

Maybe I'm missing something.
Slowly slowly, catchy funky

Nope - spot on - I did read some research a while ago - certainly not worth the upgrade $$

I also don't see the advantage to this "upgrade".
From what I have read.
