All hose clamps are already placed on
the hoses before shipping. To attach your hoses, use a pair of pliers to
loosen the clamp, and slide it approximately an inch (2.54cm) down on the
hose. Place the hoses onto the appropriate lines on your unit, and then use
the pliers to move the clamp back up on the hose.
To assemble your unit for use as a
"Reflux Still", attach the 4' (1.2192m) hose with the female hose coupling
onto inlet 1. Attach one 20" (50.8cm) hose to both 2 and 3, and the other
20" (50.80cm) hose to 4 and 5. Place the other 4' (1.2192m) tube with the
male hose coupling onto outlet 6. Connect the 4' (1.2192m) tube to the
bottom of the condenser 7, which will run into your collection container.
Moisten the thermometer, slide it into the hole of the rubber bung and place
the bung securely in the top of the column.
