    Explosion venting

    Thanks for the feedback. What the inspector wants to know is how much ethanol vapor could be released by a still column if a sight glass or valve broke. They are concerned about the possibility of this released vapor being ignited before it dissipates by ventilation. Is there a method of estimating the amount of ethanol vapor in the column (we have a 450mm diameter, 5M tall 19 plate column on a 650L Carl pot)?

    Explosion venting

    I'm in the process of building a new distillery in Ontario, Canada and the issue of explosion venting has come up. Has anyone encountered this before? Any guidance would be appreciated.
