Absinthe Pete Posted September 26, 2010 Share Posted September 26, 2010 I've never used a steam generator (steam boiler) before and have a few questions for those of you out there who do use one. Can they be regulated? What I mean is my boiler is rated at 150,000 BTUs and I'll be using the full amount to heat up the wash in the still, but after that do I turn down the steam pressure or volume to match what I want as output on the distillate? or do I just keep it full blast? Thanks. I need this info as I'm building the still from scratch, lots of still building experience but never with steam so I need to know the heat input is so I can design the condenser to keep up. Oh it'll be a maximum of 150 gallons of 40% wash at a time in a pot still. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
