  1. Hey everyone. We are upgrading our bottling line and are preparing to sell our existing line. We have a 2016 In-Line system that has a 4 head filler with an over pressurized and explosion proof control panel, an automatic CCR Engineering Model D T-Corker, 2-Label labeler with hot stamp label coder, and a heat shrink tunnel. It will include an unscrambling and a collection table. We have a manual air sparger table too, but I think we will hold on to this. Links: Filler: Economy Filler | InLine Packaging Systems, Inc. Corker: Conveyor System | CCR Engineering (designccr.com) Labeler: Paradigm 700 VS Labeler | InLine Packaging Systems, Inc. We upgraded the product pump for the unit and it makes use and cleanup super easy. Depending on when our new equipment comes in, this may be available in early September 2021. Throughput on this line is about 300BPH. But that is going kind of easy. Attached is a line drawing of the system and we plan to post videos and photos soon. Asking price is $70k and we can even have the buyer come and see it in action and learn the system before we disassemble it. Watch this space for more details. Cheers!

  2. We're on the hunt for a new label designer for a few projects. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks and cheers!
  3. You can use normal cotton twine too.
  4. Thanks Paul. We are going to mill out a copper bushing and tap it. That'll be a solid piece that can handle some torsion.
  5. Thanks Paul: We are adding a return buttress fitting to our column. We can do it in a 1.5inch tri clamp or a 1/2 inch FMPT buttress socket. I am agnostic as to which. Since the column is solid copper, we wanted to keep the buttress fitting in copper as well. I have attached pics for reference. I know I could use a standard copper sweat fit 1/2 inch FMPT adapter, but they arent terribly robust and the thread exposure is pretty limited.
  6. Hi folks! I am in search of COPPER triclamp ferrules to weld/braze to a copper column. Does anyone know where to find these?
  7. Thanks Paul. I tried to PM you but the system says I cant. I sent an email offline. Cheers!
  8. Thanks Meerkat. We live by your software, BTW. Couldn't function without it. Re: the 1st vs 2nd column condensate return, I was assuming I would run two deflegs and pump back column 2 into column one. Seems like an easier challenge to solve than seeing if a simple pump back (sans a defleg on column one) will solve the challenge.
  9. I am running into a challenge with a new building upfit and thought I would throw this to the peanut gallery. We planned for a roof penetration for our vodka column. The construction is underway. The city engineering revised the roof penetration needs substantially and the cost has now increased a bunch. The question becomes easier: spend a ton of money to do a roof penetration or modify equipment to deal with a lower ceiling? Does anyone have thoughts on making a vodka column lower or dividing it in half? Thanks and cheers!
  10. Im guessing an xpressfill could work, but I've had one in the past and wasn't too impressed with it (for 750ml bottles). Also, the TE tops. Are people just using hand held powered cappers to put them on? Thanks everyone!
  11. We are exploring sourcing our bottles directly from the manufacturer overseas. Does any distillery have experience or recommendations on a bulk supplier? We want bottle frosting, printing etc. done all at the same time. Shipping container volume. Thanks for any leads.
  12. Your senators and congressmen can help if you are being victimized here. I would absolutely loop them in and ask for intervention.
  13. Pallet Jack scale. Not the most accurate, but works for us.
  14. True: but most of them have on staff someone (or teams of people) like Donald Snyder, and wouldn't require Whiskey Systems. Alas, I cant afford a full timer that does nothing but systems management and materials/inventory/cost accounting.
