Iíd like to know what material i may use for the montage of the apparatus. Sometimes i need to make a neck of an adapter longer, so what material should i choose: clay, gypsum, some composite plasticine, rubber tube or plascic tube? Obviously the clay is the best material but it requires a muffle furnace. Jean Dubuis advised to use clay with egg yolk but this is suitable for low temperatures (i think in some cases we can use a pure clay after simple drying if we neednít disconnect the adapter from the neck). I suspect any modern composite material can pollute the contents (or i err?), the salt paste (mix of flour and common salt) can pass the salt to the liquid.
What material do you use in practice?

Greetings Hyperborean

I don't have much experience with clays. For the most part, I'm still using
stainless steel piping. It doesn't seem to react much.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
