Thank you VERY much for the incredible amount of information that you supplied, that .PDF was a great read too. Again, I am still geeking out on the whole process of distillation and the different types of stills as well as how each design contributes to the process.
As I have mentioned in my first post, I am a Mechanical Designer and in the past have developed Fuel mixing systems for Cummins, Oil recovery units for test cells at Harley Davidson, Dyno test beds, Hydraulic lifting systems, just to name a few, so once I started visiting Distilleries I had to know more about the whole process and what needs to be taken in consideration for Still design, who knows maybe that will be my next job.
Again, thank you all. I plan to keep researching the topic and would love to hear more about design ideas as they come along.
