Re: Band heater vaporizer.
Arnie, you beat me to it. That is exactly the same example I was going to use , except for the temp of the pan dropping. My ProVap will drop from 230°C to as low as as 204° C when sublimating. Not a huge difference. They key is that the OAV itself is like the water and won't get over the sublimation temperature until it has all sublimated. At that point, if contained, I believe you could increase the temeratures and cause it to break down. Just like steam can be heated well above 212°F if kept under pressure.
Anyone that produces moonshine is well aware that the temperature of a solution will remain at the boiling point of a constituent of that solution until that constituent has boiled off completely no matter how much heat is applied.

Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
