AM1000 reactor: plumbing question for the "false gas valve"
I learned here efficiency of the AM1000 (or other reactors) can be enhanced by bringing the output of the "false gas valve" on the AM1000 (C02 bleed line) back to the intake of a main pump.
One recommendation is to bring the output of the CO2 bleed valve to BEFORE the pump. So the CO2 bleed line would be connected in-line to the intake tube for the PUMP.
A different recommendation is to bring the output of the CO2 bleed valve to AFTER the pump that feeds the AM1000. So the CO2 bleed liine would be connected in-line to the intake tube of the AM1000 (but again, after the pump).
The first recommendation seems better so any excess CO2 gas will be chopped by pump impeller and then fed through reactor. But I want to go with the second option (my pump intake line is 1" and I don't want to cut into the 1" pump intake tube); it would be easier for me to bring the bleed line to 5/8" tubing which I use between the pump and AM1000.
Any reason I should NOT go with my option 2, or is this fine.
