Topic: Re: Why would the distillation column stop working well?

I don’t know what liquid seal “loot” is.  Does you mean liquid seal U-shaped loop that is used to seal a column operating under vacuum?  Given the fact that the column worked well immediately after the installation work and then performance declined suggests to me that fouling may be the problem leading to plugging of the product line over time and that the cleanout before work in the column could be done cleaned out the fouling material.
