Hose system

Connect the water hoses to the condenser according to the counter-flow principle (Fig. 14).

Install the vacuum connections to the condenser, Woulff bottle, vacuum controller with valve and vacuum pump.

Always connect the vacuum hose to the condenser at the high-test point to minimise solvent losses during suctioning.

Use typical laboratory vacuum hoses with an inside diameter of 8 mm and a wall thickness of 5 mm (see "Accessories").
