Oil Temp


Recommended Posts

I never said I run the whole thing that hot. Only starting up and getting to temp quick that is the hottest I go. Hotter than any steam system.

And truth be told as we all know it is not really over all how hot the pot is running at it is what your system (column, dephlegmator, and condenser) can handle. And about 2 million other factors.

The oil is nice!

Take Care.

We used regular old cooking oil from Walmart. Ran it hot as hell and it was fine. Cant remember the high temps, but it never even came close to getting too hot. Oh, and the oil stayed clean for more than a year; same color, same viscosity, same everything. We sold the still and the current owner is still using the same oil. No probs.
