Arnold Holstein 250 Lt. Still - Defleg Plumbing

Recommended Posts

Hey there!

I picked up a used 250 l still with a four plate column/deflegmator mounted on top of the pot and a stand alone condenser. I'm used to my deflegmator having two cooling liquid ports - one in and one out. This Holstein still has four ports and some a interconnected with stainless pipes and a collection of valves. Before I go moving water through it trying to figure it out for myself, I thought I'd see if anyone on here could help. Picture, (although not the best) attached. I'll post a better one when I'm back at my distillery tomorrow. Holstein doesn't seem to be able, (or maybe willing is a better word), to provide any explanation.

Not cip connections - there are separate ports for those. I was also thinking it could be to allow direct cooling rather than via the condenser outflow. I'll post more pics tomorrow.

was the seller of no help here?

 

The biggest question is, was the manufacturer no help?  If someone contacts me about one of my stills I help them them right away and answer any questions that they have, no matter what country they are in.  If a manufacturer will not answer those kinds of questions then they are not doing their job and they should be called out for it.
