Frit/Airstone in your diy CO2 reactor
Anyone use a ceramic/stainless steel frit/airstone in their diy inline reactor?
I have been playing with bps/flow rates. I normally run at lower rates and don't tend to get an air pocket at the top of my reactor. My configuration allows me to invert the reactor while it is running to check for an air/CO2 pocket. However, at high rates, I get an air/CO2 pocket and some sloshing noise at the end of the cycle (it is gone by morning).
I was considering putting a frit in the reactor which would create smaller initial CO2 bubbles. I had built a similar contraption in grad school to measure fugacity/Henry law constants. I thought this might get rid of the CO2 pocket and be more responsive with my light cycle
