    You just need a super simple tray at the top or the right designed spray bars, DO NOT OVER THINK IT!!! Then at the bottom of the screen there is a very simple reciprocating tipper bar that you can make to pull the solids off the screen at the bottom. The key to making it work right is the curve. Some of these are straight, but the better ones have a curve to them. But with a curved one you have to make sure the liquid get on the screen at the very top or 2" down from the top. I have seen some where it is hitting the screen 12-14" from the top, basically wasting that much of the screen. sorry to ramble.

    Dutch State Mines. It was I believe designed by De Beers for their diamond mining. It uses what is called wedge wire. It slices the water off of the solids like thousands of razor blades. It is the spacing of each wedge that is important. You have to have the right gap between the wires for your select type of process. The cool thing is if it wears down on one side you can take it out and turn it around and poof!!! new screen. You can get brand new wedge wire screens cheap. There are several big USA companies that make all kinds of this stuff. Like BDISCREENS.COM Look up DSM screens on youtube. They are very cool.

    It is called a DSM screen. They are super cheap. And no one seems to know anything about them in the distilling world. They are really great pieces of equipment when set up correctly. Let me know if you nee help. The screen has to be set up for the size of particles you are running. Plus it looks like you will need a off feed auger. Take care. 515-559-4879 Joseph

    Continuous Columns: Where do I start??

    I Build Continuous stills also. www.redbootstills.com One of the things to think about when choosing the size of a unit is all the other parts. Like the size of the chiller, the size of the boiler, collection tank, collection piping, size of water lines, ect........ I just finished up a continuous still here in Iowa (just down the street). That is 30' tall, 18" column, insulated - OD=28', 6" sight port on every plate, massive confessor and pre-heater, simple digital controls, LED lights. This unit will input 8-17 gpm , that is its operating envelope. Everything is designed and run in a computer model before any stainless is cut. Anyways, the unit must be sized for what you are doing and what you have, and your budget. Just because someone can make a unit that can process 20 gpm does not mean you need it, or can you afford a boiler and chiller upgrade??? The other thing is you will have to have enough mash to justify even turning it on. Some of the bigger units I build for people will not even be used unless they have 2000-3000 gallons of mash. The smaller units only need a couple hundred gallons. Another foundation of all of this is customer support, and training. Also, on thing to beware of is controls and extras. I know for a fact one of the companys listed on here for whom I will not say, will sell you a continuous still, but the controls to run it are not included, you have to go somewhere outside of the company that made it to get the controls. I ran one of there units personally. Long story short, Continuous stills are amazing. You can expand your capacity by adding one to your equipment. But you must choose the right size. Make sure you can get the right customer support. You must get the right training. Get the right controls. And over all feel good with the selection you make.
