3" VM Column

3" VM Column

Hi Guys
Been running a 2" VM Proportional Splitting Head still for quite a few years now and have decided to upgrade to a 3" column to speed runs up a bit. Question for the more experienced 3" column owners. Whats the optimum height using SPP as a filler and how much heat and speed do any of you run it at. Any advice really appreciated.

It's been a long while since I read DAD300's CCVM thread over on HD, but I think I remember that he suggested 30" for 3" and 40" for 2". He uses SPP as his packing. I think I also remember some discussion of output rate in that same thread. There's also a very long thread on HD that discusses "all things packing".
