Watch this space peoples, I have a few more stills and other new parts coming over the next couple of weeks..... some really cool gear on its way :happy-partydance:

I will also be releasing a new 4 plate bubbler, I cant wait to clamp this baby together :dance:

Also arriving is the first of some 6" gear that I might put into production, and also a few new models of product condensers.

The first of the 8" bubblers is also about to become a reality with it being shipped by the end of next week.

However due to prying eyes here I wont be releasing too many details until the gear actually arrives and is available ;-)

Regarding initial cleaning of FSD SS rigs , do you recomend doing the usual practice of water/vinegar run followed by the sacrificial alcohol run.

Or can can you get away with just the alcohol run.

I reckon if you give the plates a bit of a soak in citric acid for a few hours, then give em a bit of a clean up you're good to go for a single alcohol cleaning run.

Really everything is pretty clean from the factory, you'd probably get away with doing your cleaning run in the dishwasher :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Nahh, hot soap, dishwasher run on heavy duty cycle, then a citric rinse & I'm gonna let the fores and heads do anything else. I'm regularly mocked for my beer brewing background which has given me a cleaning obsession:-)

I can't see the need after all the above to use anything other than fores and heads to clean it further.

Thats what i was kind of hoping i hate waisting booze , i was thinking maybe the fores and heads might do the trick but was'nt sure if it would be enough.
