1lb of Copper Packing for Still Columns
One pound of copper mesh rolls for the packing of distilling columns.
Mesh is 5″ in width
The copper will come wound tightly in a roll. Backwind the copper to a medium tight roll to the diameter of a 1/4 to 1/2 inch larger then the diameter of the tower so it fits snug into the tower. Insert 2 or 3 rolls of copper from the bottom of the tower then poor rings in from the top of the tower up to about 1″ below where the condenser arm comes into the tower. The copper mesh will keep the rings from falling into the boiler.
1 pound of copper will pack a 3″ column once and a 2″ column twice.
We suggest to clean the copper with Citric Acid, rinse with water, and let air dry after each run. Replace copper packing every 6-8 runs.
