Hey apmata
Why not pop into the welcome centre and introduce yourself. If you let us know what you are trying to do your question might make more sense to someone mate. I can’t give you an answer because I don’t really know what you are asking

Where I can agree with Wellsy

Just pop in the introduction center first :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Now if you distill in SS still all the sulfides will go thru and the output will taste like petrol :puke-huge:

Copper does need to be in the vapour path to remove them so with any still copper does need to be there
