I'm keen to go 4'' so I can get more product out faster (I'm pretty impatient). I read somewhere that a 3" packed column was as big as you can go but other references seemed to point to a 4" column being fine? Any feed back please?
Been impatient as you say you are...
Go for more power so you can run this 120l 4" with full potential.
I would double the power to 10000kW and add dimmers for full control.
