  1. Inside the production area containing fermentation tanks, 1000L still and 2000L still is a set of stairs downstairs to the boiler room/bathroom/storage area (steel door separation at bottom of stairs). An engineer was concerned about the settling of CO2 in the bottom of the stairwell. The stairwell is on an outside wall. Best way to manage this? My intention was to put a CO2 sensor in that area.
  2. Urgent need for any distillery that isn’t producing hand sanitizer and wants to be a part of this important movement and impacting the lives of millions. We are in desperate need of 90%+ pure alcohol based on ethanol or isopropanol, no other contaminants or add-ons (willing to purchase). My company is working on behalf of two of the largest organizations that represent healthcare supply chain workers, of who I have proudly been a part of for 30 years, our people are on the front lines fighting on the phones for gowns, masks and sanitizer and we have found a potential large sca
  3. Hi everyone, I am looking to buy a pump to transfer: 1) some undiluted spirit at 80% ABV to a larger resting vessel where it will be diluted 2) 40% ABV neutral spirit into my still. what are some safety issues I must be aware of and any brand/configuration recommendations? I assume plastic hand pumps are not safe? Thanks.
  4. I'm looking for an alternative to the condenser temperature probe we were given with our still. I am looking for an explosion proof, alarmed temperature gauge to take the place of what we have in there now. What we have now is meant to be run with an automated setup, which we do not have. ( https://spluss.de/en/products/temperature/temperature-controllers-thermostats/built-in-temperature-controller-immersion-thermostat/1102-2010-2100-390-etr-060-u-va-100/ ) (pictured) Trying to find an answer from our supplier has been unsuccessful. If anyone has a lead on a alternative, or how to get this thi
  5. We are in the design phase and out architect brought up the the question or installing a plumbed eye wash station. Is this a code requirement in some locations for a DSP? Just wondering what everyone else has done here.
  6. I am looking to put together a Standard Operating Procedure document for our state, and for future employees (also possibly for the FDA?) Is DISCUS good place to get a template for this? Is anyone willing to share a template? It will be tweaked for our unique plant but am looking for somewhere to start. I put this in "Safety" because I would imagine that will/should be first and foremost in any SOP document. Thank you!
  7. Hi All, Our columns don't have adjustable legs/feet on them. Anybody have recommendations for adjustable legs - preferably that can be permanently mounted into concrete? I'm looking for a safe/secure method of adjusting our columns because our concrete is uneven.. Would this adjustable foot work if we use a couple and then use separate anchor bolts to secure it to the concrete? Is there a cleaner / more streamlined option? Thanks
  8. I have been chewing over a question for nearly a decade now and, frankly can't come to a balanced conclusion. I would like to hear others' input on this: What is the benefit of a tube-in-jacket condenser system over a traditional worm/coil and tub setup? I have worked hands-on in dozens of distilleries over the years and beyond a doubt over-boil vapor release situations, that being where a loss of water pressure or similar coolant flow event, have been the most common and dramatic safety issue I have seen. I would bet that any distillery operating for more than 6 months has seen a va
  9. 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.
  10. Been working on setting up a small farm distillery for a couple years now and ran across a hoga still that seems like a potentially good fit for what I want to eventually do (brandy mostly) The still appears to have a steam coil in the jacket and the original posting listed the heat source as a steam coil but when I spoke with the owner she said they were planning on bricking it in and running direct flame. Two main questions: is their increased risk with running direct flame under a pot with a jacket and a coil in it? Would it even work? My gut says yes and no, but maybe I'm off.
  11. Hello everyone. Very limited background in distillery safety requirements. I work in a brewery right now and was recently asked what osha standards were for a distellery as far as the lab and chemical side goes. I'm trying to do some research to help out a friend in the business and any suggestions on reading material or what signs and material are needed for safety requirements would be so much help.... Thanks guys...
  12. OSHA has made it clear that it will enforce its jurisdiction over the micro-distillers (DSPs) nation wide. Below is a URL for actions taken across the nation by OSHA that includes giants of the industry and micros such as Tuthilltown Spirits in New York. https://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/industry.search?p_logger=1&sic=&naics=312140&State=All&officetype=All&Office=All&endmonth=02&endday=27&endyear=2011&startmonth=02&startday=27&startyear=2016&owner=&scope=&FedAgnCode= What can you do: 1) Review OSHA rules in your state.

  14. Good morning, The Silver Trail Explosion Fire Marshall's report is available online at https://www.scribd.com/doc/272493968/Silver-Trail-Distillery-Accident-Investigation-Response-Report#fullscreen Please take time to read it today and think about safety in your facility. This report is not the final definitive answer, the engineering report from the insurance company will be the final answer of what went wrong. Try to leave the armchair engineering out of the discussion and just read the report...think about safety in your distillery in all aspects, not just your still. Go look

  16. Hey all, Sorry to bring another story of an incident at a distillery. This time the incident appears to be in San Antonio, TX at Azar Distilling, LLC or http://www.cincovodka.com/Home.aspx Article from http://www.ksat.com/content/pns/ksat/news/2014/10/24/explosion-sparks-fire-at-vodka-distillery.html Not much info other than the wall of the building was blown off and the operator was blown through the wall. I truly hope everyone is ok. I would ask if anyone knows the group at Azar if they would be willing to share more information about the incident, especially as it relates
  17. I have a restaurant moving in next door. There is a brick wall separating the spaces, and both units are sprinklered. Should I be concerned about their emissions, venting from their exhaust hoods, flames on their ranges, etc.....?
