  1. Ethanol recovery w/o running water

    I won't always have access to cold running water. So I need to be self contained. I don't mind pumping fluids around. Distillation of ethanol is occurring under vacuum. This is a falling film setup. Getting vapor at 65-70c. I need to chill a 4"x36 and 4"x24 shotgun condensers hooked in series. Both have 7x (3/4") tubes. For evaporation we have a jacketed 4"x48" column we need to heat. What are some affordable options for self contained heating and chilling? Steam generator and air to water exchanger with wort chiller? I'm hoping to reach 20-26L/hr recovery. We currently have a 5L/-40c chiller for a small condenser on another rig, but we know it's no where large enough for the upgrade.
  2. Electric Steam Generator

    Has anyone looked into using an electric steam generator for heating their mash tun and/or still? I'm just starting to look at this option and wanted to see if anyone has experience on the matter. A boiler would be great, but I'm in a rental space in which I don't plan to stay in past 3-5 years and I'd also be responsible for installing and subsequently removing everything I alter while I occupy the space. This seems like a reasonable alternative to get the steam heating I desire and still keep my impact on the space low.

  4. Steam Control

    Simple question for those of you with low pressure steam boilers: How do you control how much heat is going to the still if the boiler has only on/off operation? Can someone please describe their setup and how it works? I've only been exposed to direct heating with electric elements and steam is a different animal. Cheers, VB
  5. Need a Steam generator opinion

    We are purchasing some equipment to run our 300L Hoga still. We are also bootstrapping so a full setup of a 10-15hp boiler is going to kill our budget (unless we go back out for funding). I have seen in previous forum discussions that a 12kW Steam Generator would work to heat our still in a pretty standard and fairly decent time frame - this obviously isn't a long term solution but I wanted to get an opinion on feasibility, especially for that first year or so of running the still. (FYI - we are getting our mash from a local brewery so no HLT or Mash tun considerations here). Appreciate any input around this. Cheers! Alex

  7. I am selling a used "Shell and tube condenser" instant hot water heater manufactured by Jet-Vac. This hot water heater is steam powered off your boiler and allows you to make unlimited amounts of hot water up to 211 degrees at up 30GPM. It is big, about 6~7 feet tall and all stainless. Built in 1994 the nameplate says it is rated to 30 GPM. It was included with my boiler when I bought it (15hp Fulton) but I don't need it. I've seen it in operation but have not used it myself. The outside insulation jacket is cracked and split in a couple of places from moving it around. Included are the NTP flanges to hook into a system as well as a custom built stand. In the pic you can see me standing next to the heater (the heater is about 6 ft tall) and the custom made steel stand is next to it. Its rated up to 75psi and the original owner had it running at 60psi, lower pressures will yield lower hot water flow rates. A pressure regulator, relief valve and tempering valve are NOT included. You must use a tempering/mixing valve after the heater to get the exact water temp you need. See attached pics for more info. Asking $2000 as I just don't need it. Shipping not included and it will need to crated. For more Contact Kevin at 603-512-0455. Located in Seabrook, NH
  8. Can anyone recommend a boiler installer in Colorado? This is going into our distillery in Steamboat Springs. I am having a bear of a time finding anyone closer to us then Denver to sell us and install a boiler. That said, if anyone has a good person in Denver, I would happily accept that too. Getting a little desperate here. I need to find a reasonable priced installer to help source a unit and pipe it in to code.
  9. Boiler location

    Purchasing a new boiler and the contractor is suggesting that we locate it on the floor as close to the mash cooker and still as possible. Less install cost and minimal loss through the piping. Since we have to move things around anyway to accommodate new equipment I am trying to maximize the space. What is the minimum safe distance to place a 15 psi natural gas boiler next to the still? Any other considerations?

  15. Steam or Electric?

    Hey guys, So we are thinking about upgrading to a 12" 16-plate reflux still. I think that a 200 Gallon boiler would be sufficient. At the current time we are running a 8" 8-plate still on electric. SO if we were to choose steam we would also have to invest in a boiler. If we were to stay with electric would it be possible to run a still of this size? what would be the power requirements? As in how many 15kW heating elements do you think it would require? Thanks
  16. Can anyone recommend a NG boiler installer in Northern Colorado?
  17. First, forgive me if I'm posting something that exists within these threads. I've done searching and found a lot of indirect information but nothing that rounds out what I'm looking for. We are designing our system and have the opportunity to go with either setup for our mash cooker. Right now our plan is to use direct steam injection but I've received a lot of criticism from other distillers who state that introducing steam that could have possible contamination from boiler treatment (even if it is food grade) is a big mistake. The other side of the argument is that we've (the royal we) been making whiskey in America for 60 years using live steam injection. It's efficient and works, so why change it. The alternative is to use internal coils running indirect steam in combination with a dimple jacket for cooling water. *We are using a low pressure Colombia boiler If you could set this up however you wanted, what would you do and why? Thanks in advance.
  18. For sale is a Sussman ES100 Electric Boiler. We bought this several months ago at the beginning of our planning stages. Since then, many things have changed and this unit no longer fits what we need. It was purchased from an individual that installed it for use in a restaurant application. The boiler was installed and never used. We have never installed it. It has been stored indoors at all times. Unit cabinet looks brand new. Can provide more photos upon request. Unit currently located in Central Maryland. Any questions, please ask. According to the "average" guide to sizing boilers (1,000 btu/hour per gal needing heated), this unit should service a 350 gallon steam jacketed kettle. Sussman ES100 KW - 108 360,000 btu/hour BHP - 11 208VAC - 3 Phase 120VAC Control Voltage Up to 100 psi - ASME Code "M" $5000 OBO - Boiler must be sold.. please make offer. SOLD AS IS. Free Local Pickup - but you'll need a lift gate or trailer. Unit currently bolted to a pallet. Can ship via freight.

  20. Direct Injection Steam Quality

    Hi all, we are engineering our steam system to feed steam directly into our wash in the cooker. This means that we need to have "food quality" steam being injected. Since standard steam lines are made of carbon steel, is there a concern that our steam will carry in rust/off flavors into our wash? If so, what is the alternative; stainless steel pipes, food-grade anti-oxidiant addition to the feed water? Many thanks!
  21. Hello. I am looking at starting with a readily available 50 Gallon still to start with while waiting for the build of a larger still. My question is, has anyone used a still with fittings for electric elements and modified them for direct steam injection?
  22. Steam Heating a Hoga Still

    Hi folks We've been looking at the heating options for a 400 litre Hoga still and are favouring the internal steam heated coil option. As far as steam generation goes, Fulton seem to have some good kit which is being used by a couple of other UK distillers in similar setups. However in the literature from Hoga, there is a suggestion that a 12KW sauna heater would work. At a third the price it looks like an option but I do have concerns over durability. Is anyone out there using a sauna or "non conventional" method of generating steam? If so what has been your experience. Thanks in advance Ben
  23. We have upgraded to a larger still so we are selling our 160 gallon steam jacketed still that has both a copper goose neck with onion and a 4 plate copper column. Still also includes the dephlegamater, condenser and motor. The still was manufactured in China and has been in our production line for 1 year. Still will be ready for pick up the second week of February. If you are interested and come by before the first week of February you can see it in production. Price: $17,500 Contact greg@8feathersdistillery.com for details. Serious Inquiries only.
  24. Surface area for heating pipes?

    I need help on calculating the surface area required for copper internal heating pipes in a 3000ltr / 800 gallon wash still design I'm working on. The pot size will be <>2000mm/1200mm - 79"/47". I'm thinking circulating thermal oil instead of steam as the easiest option for heating the still. My understanding is thermal oil runs at about 300C / 572F, with the oil being pumped through an open system (zero pressure) via a header tank. The heating side will be gas fired. Agitation will be part of the design equation, any thoughts welcome.
  25. So I am looking at my equipment and my current situtaiton is as follows. I have a direct heat still with thump keg and condenser and I have a steam jacketed mash tun. I am trying to decide if A. I should just find a direct heat Mash Tun and go the route of avoiding steam for now in order to keep cost down or go ahead and find a steam boiler and steam heat the mash tun and keep the still direct heat (saves alot in up front costs). The question I have is, Is a natural gas boiler safe? Can it be used in the context of a distillery? Is anyone currently using a nat. gas boiler for steam generation? Brian
