It is used as packing for a reflux column. It does an OK job but itís not great. Itís all about surface area for condensation, so the best thing Iíve tried yet in a packed column is stainless steel pot scrubbers. Of course if you donít have any copper in your column, youíre better off using structured copper mesh or pure copper pot scrubbers.
Stainless steel packing is better as it is cheaper, easier to get and lasts a lot longer than copper.
