I have an idea that would allow the "dipper
Bosco group" (CMA) to be used as a "thermpsiphon
Look at the valve at the back of the Bosco group, where it controls the water flow rate when the lever is pulled down:
(there is a youtube video for Doug from OE explaining the valve function)
Now in another post (How does water circulate in a thermosiphon spring lever grouphead?
), in post one, the dipper Bosco group drawing is shown:
and in post 3, the thermosiphon Bosco group drawing is shown:
I think the valve in the "thermosiphon group" has no function (or maybe the drawing does not show the full details.) Anyway, my idea is:
- to remove the valve and the ball in it at all, and attach one of the thermosiphon pipes to the hole of the valve, and the dipper hole in the back of the group is used for the other thermosiphon pipe. This way, a thermosiphon cycle is formed.
I think the idea is viable; however, the look of the group with one pipe attached to its back is not pretty:)
