…and how often does it take a shit & leave you in the woods?
Apparently my equipment budget now includes “distillate scale-up”. [just barely]
I was told the VTA/Roots Scientific machine was out of the question when last I suggested it, but just found quotes in my inbox for both 4" and 6" POPE WFE units this morning.
Which means I’ve got to look at WFE seriously now. Oh Joy!
I haven’t heard anyone here say anything bad about the POPE units, other than the 2" unit is on the small side. How is their support? Anyone have any regrets after purchasing one?
dosing pumps? The POPE quotes I got had two pump options: $17k or $24k. the peristaltic pumps from beaker&wrench seem like a better option, but I’m guessing I’d still need some of the bits POPE includes with their pumps…so I’m probably not looking at two $6400 pumps vs $17 or $24k.
I assume I should also question the vac pump POPE is spec’ing at $5800
Mechanical rotary vane vacuum pump system for medium range (to 0.05 Torr), with S.S. fittings for attachment to 6" Wiped-Film Still; 14.7 CFM free air displacement. Includes oil mist eliminator and vacuum tubing. 3/4 HP, 120 or 240 VAC, 50/60 H
it doesn’t sound like a diffusion or Turbo Molecular pump…
