I like my CM set up, it does well for me. I'm currently replacing my old dephlegmator but a couple design features on mine that might be unusual:
My latest dephlegmator (under construction) is 3/4" x 9" and employs not one, not two but 18 through condensers. Granted the condensers are only 1/8" but I figure 18 of them in a roughly 6 point arrangement will do the job nicely. The PC and RC are separated by a manifold an valve as suggested earlier. I don't employ a centering ring but what I did was sand out the inner rim of the reducer that joins the dephlegmator to the packed section. This allows the bottom of the dephlegmator to insert all the way through the reducer thus directing the reflux away from the sides and more to the center of the packing. With my original set up I was pulling about 94% from a packed area of only approx. 16" hight and I expect with the new dephlegmator I will get the same. The old design had flaws in the dephlegmator water feed so I had to rebuild it. I haven't tried other column designs as of yet so I only know CM but honestly if that's as far as it ever got I'd be happy with it. It gives consistent, quality product that runs off like clockwork, every time.
