  1. The issue is that the bills (congress and senate versions) must be attached to other bills to make a package that can be voted on together. Once each bill has passed their respective houses, the bills get morphed into a single version that then both houses approve by another vote and it becomes law. Can that happen before the end of the year, yes it can. Will it, probably not, if the first vote doesn't happen next week.

  3. Understand the process, but if you are not going to mash or only need a portion to mash, the water needs to be transferred into the second holding tank to be chilled overnight. I'm in CA, so I have to minimize the amount of water that gets put down the drain (read none) - a condition of being granted to operate a distillery. You can understand now why I'm looking to glean ideas from what others have done. I'm trying to create an elegant system with the minimum of pumps and holding tanks. The chilling circuit will be separate stand alone system from the condenser/mash cooling circuit.
  4. Good compressor and a cascade system of a couple storage tanks would support the vacuum and any pumps you maybe running in your plant. It's only money...
  5. I got two 1,600 tanks and a chiller to create a closed cold water cooling system for my condenser and to cool mash. Wondering if any of you will share how you laid out your piping and what pumps you used?
  6. How do they work? You create a venturi using a compressed air source. https://www.hafcovac.com/product/certified-explosion-proof-vacuum/?attribute_pa_air-supply=85-cfm&attribute_pa_drum_size=55-gallon&attribute_pa_vacuum-hose-diameter=1-5-inches&attribute_pa_features=ex-model
  7. Hence using a pneumatic vacuum and duct work to build a small collection system.
  8. The reason I posted the question is that the pneumatic vacuums avoid all issues with heat and bearings. Just wondering if a system (blower, duct work and intakes) has been built using a pneumatic vacuum?
  9. We're not trying to comply with anything but, as you put it, common sense. Trying to remove grain dust for overall cleanliness and reduce/remove any potential explosion hazards created by our milling process. Since posting this to the forum, I was educated by a grain dust removal expert - he specs dust removal systems to granaries. The main factor when sizing a dust collection system is to keep your CFM at or above 4,000 CFM so particles don't fall out of the air stream, use metal ducting (6"-8") and if flex hose is needed make sure it has a metal wire in it to dissipate and static build up.
  10. Having researched for nearly four months and reviewed a dozen quotes, I would like to recommend Automatic Farm Systems ( www.afsproducts.com ) to anyone looking for a hammer mill. Reasonable price and exceptional service. We picked up a 20 HP mill, control panel, hopper and auger for under $6K. Thanks @Huffy2k for the recommendation. Hammer_Mill.pdf
  11. Has anyone created a mill dust collection system using a pneumatic vacuum?
  12. Brewers quit halfway. I'm no quitter.
