Southernhighlander Posted March 6, 2018 Share Posted March 6, 2018 There is something going on that everyone should be aware of. There are 3 distillery equipment vendors out there that are importing stills from China that have major design flaws. One company is in Canada. All of the drawings on their web site are my design drawings. These drawings were given to them by a factory that I used to build some of my equipment. What they do not realize is that I added design flaws to the drawings before I submitted them to the factories. When I get the equipment here we fabricate things and change things to make these stills work correctly. We also pressure test them, inspect the welds, run and test the agitators, add apollo pressure relief and vacuum relief valves, assemble everything to make sure that all parts and components are there, then I personally do a 30 point inspection before the equipment leaves here.. Another company is in Washington state. I have helped one of their customers with multiple problems concerning their still. The vendor could not even give the customer the info needed to wire the agitator and that was just the beginning of a long list of problems. Another of these vendors is in the Rockies. This vender sold a still to a customer with the same design flaws that I drew into my designs when I submitted them to a certain factory 6 years ago.. I am helping that customer solve their problems now. Also this vendor sold a jacketed vessel to one of their customers with no vacuum relief valve and it imploded. If you are on a distillery equipment vendors web site and their stills look just like mine, beware they will probably not function properly, especially if they have bubble plate columns. Here is a link to my web site http://distillery-equipment.com if you see my design for sale on other web sites email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
