Boiler Questions

Postby Dyno » Mon May 11, 2015 12:13 pm

Hi guys....I have a few questions regarding the strength of a T500 boiler lid and if anyone thinks / knows if its capable of supporting a 900mm Leiberg Condenser.The upright is 500mm 2" with the 900m (which I think is half into three quarter) condenser. What I have got is a bare keg, which needs to be converted but thought in the mean time, while that is getting done i could get the adapter from FSD, throw it on and be semi functional while the other work is being done?
Would it stress / buckle the lid, be a tip over waiting to happen ? Pure novice at pot stilling so all advice taken on board. Would it strip alright ? I was going to get a controller for it but have changed plans as this kit came up locally. Or am I just pissing in the wind and being impatient ? Thanks chaps.

I did it and it works fine. I put legs to the lid so if it does tend to lean its supported. But if you make them too long the column wont seal :handgestures-thumbupleft:
Also keep the liberg angle as vertical as possible and you will be sussed
