Question: What keeps your feed solution from being sucked right into the condenser (center column)?
Oh, and here ya go, guys. A simple liquid distributor:
I’ll have to do a technical drawing and send it over to a few folks for quotes. Gotta brush up on tolerances/surface finishes as per ASME and I’ll do so. I understand ethanol recovery doesn’t need a pressure vessel by ASME standards, but I would prefer the functionality and build quality of an ASME stamped vessel.
I left out the center hole so that liquid can be filled directly centered using a simple dip-tube. I’m sure you could easily flood the plate with a spray nozzle or a multi-port distribution nozzle above it - but it adds some cost.
