    Hi,

    I just bought a Laborator 1200, and noticed that my femocon 80 condenser has some fogging. This condenser actually has two pieces of glass contained in a metal housing, and the fogging seems to be on the inside (great:sad:). Can I safely remove one of the glass pieces to clean them? How should I get rid of the fogging?

    Many thanks,
    Josh

    Just remove a few screws in order to remove the glass condensers. Then wash them in dish washing soap, dry, and reinstall. Easy!

    sounds great. I was wondering if it was ok to do that or not.
