The column

The fractionating column consists of a 3 ft. length of either 1V4 or 1V2- inch I.D. copper tubing, whichever you prefer.

The bottom end of the column is joined to the top of the boiler by means of a union to permit disassembly when required. You could use either a 11/4 inch or a 3/4 inch union, and of course the smaller one is cheaper, but use the large one so that you will have free access to the column for introducing the packing (see later). At the top of the column a tee is provided for the passage of vapour across to the still-head condenser and for a thermometer to measure the vapour temperature.

The column must be well insulated to ensure a stable temperature regime within the column while it is refluxing. Use an insulating sleeve of foam rubber obtainable from your plumbing supply store.
