Would it make a difference if a ss ball valve was used rather than a ss gate valve?

Dayum! I'm feeling a little inadequate of my new parrot build now!

Sure is some purdy work. Now let's see some action shots! :P

I love those condensers I'm wanting to build one for my boka that will soon be a lm/vm combo but I have a question. What keeps your liquid from pooling in the tee?

I have not had any pooling issues .. the rig does require it to be level... I guess if it wasnt level then pooling could become an Issue .. thanks thekubiaks for the kind words... actually Im in the process of building a 3 inch version with little different take on a few things ... I have added a sight glass .. pics .. soon .

Impressive metal work! :clap:

I can see you got what it takes....with that kind of soldering skills :thumbup:
Nice crossflowcondenser on top of that VM.
Like the way you put it in that box, it reminds me of my days in the army...our sniperrifles came in such a box too. Guess you are ready to pinpoint your target and get a good drop out of it...bullseye... :ebiggrin:

So the new-mooonshiner has a new toy. I gotta say the work is amazing. Did you do it your self? Hows it work? How much did it cost you? Where can I get one? It is beautiful. If whoever built it isn't doing this for a living they should be.

Glorious build! Everything looked so damn pretty but out of all the copper porn there was never a pic of this beauty fully assembled. Can't really see it in that video very well either. NM or Xfab can you post a pic of this gorgeous beast fully assembled?

Very nice build, Defiantly and inspiration of greatness to us all.......or a let down knowing half of us couldn't build something near as beautiful. :wink:

Either way Very nice sir, very nice indeed.

What did you use for insulation? It looks like you used electrical tape to hold it in place?

EDIT: I just found your "Nomalock and Armaflex" insulation comment...did you use fusion tape to keep it all on there or something else?

That is truly a beauty-full still You build there. Do You have any idea of how much water You push thru the crossflow condenser and how much it can handle? (Kw)
I'm about to build a 3" condenser of that type which should be able to knock down 3Kw.

I dont think it would take a 3 inch model to knock down 3kw here is the pump I drive my rig with .. I did a build a 3 inch model of this condenser which ended up being over kill for my 3 inch VM/LM rig.
