Can you recall when the patent link was posted on the forum and will have a look at the P & ID later on, but would initially consider controlling the temperature of MSAR2 just a case of a thermostat unless they are utilising the jacket water as the heating medium, didn't really look too closely at the P&ID as there was no legend with it.
Whereas changing the type of pump is a complete switch from the norm. Which I was surprised at because I understood that MSAR2 was… Read More
