55 Gallon water Bath Proofing Still


Recommended Posts

By the way, while 7kW should be fine for driving the column, that will mean a very long heat up for the initial fill. You want something more like 20kW to allow you to get to a boil in one hour versus 3 hours.

in the midst of redesigning the column on this, going with a single large bubble cap rather than multiple smaller ones. this allows for more fluid retention per plate, which should in turn make it less "twitchy" to changes. I've considered incresing the column size to 8" at the same time, but this increases the cost much more. I think I'll build one in the 6" first and see it run before I consider the 8".

as soon as the factory as back from New Years break (yes they all vacation at the same time) I'm going to have one built for a demo unit, to be displayed at the ADI conference in April.
