Re: ProVap110 video
snl - Interesting info on the development and use of the Varrox and Provap. It sounds like the working temperature of 230C for the Provap was determined by trail and error based on finding a temp that prevented the vaporized OA from re-condensing before it could exit the nozzle.

I know the set temperature of the Provap is adjustable. Would you suggest I go up in temp, or has your experience shown that 230C a relatively firm upper limit that shouldn't be exceeded?
