Hey so I was wondering about whether or not Teflon could be used as tubing for a methanol recovery apparatus. Has anyone done this before or heard of anyone doing it? The chemical resistance of Teflon and the high temperature rating lead me to think that this may be a viable idea.
What do you guys think?
what's wrong with copper?
easy to get..
works fine with methanol.
metal makes for a better reflux column. you need something to dissipate heat.
just some thoughts

I am with dkenny on this one. Soft copper tubing is excellent for making a condenser with. This is the old one I used that shows how to build one and the new one where I swapped out the pail for a water heater but kept the same condenser.

I used the pumber's delight version of the condensor column. 1/2" copper inside of 1" copper water jacket. 1/2 by 1/2 pipe theads on each end, and for the water jacket outlets. then 1 by 1/2 by 1/2 tee's to close everything up. works great.
