Action: Fault

Catchpot overflowed and there was butanol in the exhaust tube and MFC.

MFC and exhaust tubes were cleaned out and flow adjusted with Gilibrator - MFC setpoint changed to 0.7 lpm which measured 1015ccm with the GiIlibrator.

I checked again around half an hour later and the catchpot was half full! maybe the instrument is flooded? I shut it down for now because it is too rough to be in the Aerosol Lab.
