Sorry my friend,

My little sister is dead in cancer in about 5 years ago, she was very pretty but she smoked to much….

That’s life and this is one of the reasons to why a am building and building to I am self happy with the end result… because that is the only thing that is left after all of us!
The stuff we made…

Now a am sitting and thinking of a “Swedish made” destilations boiler and a think that a shall let build 2pc..

1pc insulated with the electric heater element strait in the mesh for fastest reaction to the control panel and best performance and 1pc boiler with bain marie/ oil around it an no insultation, sorry but this is the way it shall be and some people want to have in “hole garden” in the boiler, then bain marie/oil bath is the way to go….

I am not sure if a shall let this boiler be made in copper or stainless… if I go for copper then a can made it all from plan copper sheet in 2-3mm…

If a go for stainless a can by finished/ stansed round bottom end and also top end with a cone in 45 degres and in about 3mm thickness.

About 80cm shall it be in diameter and about 90cm height + cone and if a loaded it with about 300 liter then it shall be about 60cm mash height then a have about 30cm left for the foam+ cone before column come…

http://www.buktens.se/index.php?option= ... 7&Itemid=6


Here you al can se some “easy made” copper model that a relly like… but am note sure that copper in the boiler is so easy to clean after everytime you have use it.. ss i think is much easier to clean and a have all rest parts ( in stem part) in pure copper so i think that is enought copper alredy..

Here can you se howe the finished cone in ss looks like…

I am deeply sorry for your loss Harley. I apologize for my poor humor as well.

You are 100% correct. There is NOTHING we can leave behind except for our work. Be it instilled values that we pass to our children or the physical things we make. Like I said before your work stands for itself. It will be here much longer than any of us, and I hope it is remembered as yours.

I was going to link you a US company that Pre-Fabs stainless so all you have to do is the welding but I see (as always) you have it well under control. There are just a few people that impress me. You are one of them.

It,s okey. No problem that’s life.

Issnt this little 4” lovely with both drain and ciphead, a relly like it and soon a shall test both pc1 with 54mm caps and 4mm pattern and this pc2 with 63mm caps and 4,5mm pattern of this test column with 5500watt power to about 50 liter of mash..

stilcol.png

My 220mm single bubbelcaps is finish, now a shall fix 3pc plate to this in 12”/30cm also this weekend and a go for 4" as riser so a dont need to have so much licuid to fill this 12"plate....

And a shall go with bolted conections in all size over 8" becouse this is the limit for me with clamps and ferrules conections...

Beautiful still. First class materials, and workmanship. You have set a high bar for the rest of us looking to build but I thank you for that.

I have a question on the Pict. of the Rebel still you posted. Perhaps you will know... The coil of copper that is shaped sort of like a worm connecting the product condenser to the reflux condenser... I assume that is there to cool the water between the to interconnected condensers. I would think something like a finned radiator tube would be more efficient.. Do you know why they used a heavy coil full of water vs any other method? Is that there for cooling?
More importantly would you use something like that? Everything inside me says no.

I may need to be "put down" soon.

Thank you, :text-welcomewave:

I think it has the rolled tube so here mostly for stylish look.

I only see the problem with having such a long distance between the column and the product cooler and it is clearly visible in this small rolled water cooling tube construction ...
I am close to the optimum plate design for maximum taste transfer and also maximum separation….
Only one thing is left.. the Optimum height of this low saw tooth pattern…
It shall ended up some were between 4-5mm so am going for 4,5mm to start with… :confusion-confused:


bild966.png


The distance that the reflux licuid Must travel before it can go down to next plate is More than 2x plate/column size.... in all column size.... :handgestures-thumbupright:


That is a Pro plate :lol:

Nuts.... :obscene-moneypiss: "pro" 36 crap

I can see where planning that pattern can be a major bitch. You either have to change the circumference of the cap or the angle of the tooth.
I would also assume the only way to know the true effect is to make multiple caps to compare to each other... Are you planing any chemical analysis or are you trusting you pallet to determine the results of you cap design?

I would think 0.5mm differences could be quite subtle, and almost subjective.

Ps... If the coil was there for style... It missed the mark. Just my opinion tho. It's a beautiful looking still but that coil just looked unfinished like an after thought.

Bubble Caps are really easy to size/dimension for maximum taste transfer ... only you know if the input power to the column ...
If you have too much / too high / flow discharges through bubblel caps slots then you build up pressure and then you have to increase the return pipe diameter Very much/powerful if you don like to flood the plate ... and if you have to little input power to column so probably not all slot shall work and press the steam Down to the bottom plate...

look relly carfully/close to Stilldragons video of theres Old pro caps 36... then you se that the bubbels/steam is only coming out at the top of this caps... and 50% of the height is note in use of theres slots height :angry-banghead: .... foreshot shall be there for a long time, and the distans for the reflux liciud is about 1,5cm to travel ... Nuts... :angry-banghead:

The Thing is to keep all the steam emissions at all times so they really Press the steam to the bottom of the plate and the optimum would be if you could get them to travel farther/longer through targeted 10mm lips that went out horizontally across each low triangle ...

The triangel shap is what a think is optimum for slots... becouse then you can relly ceep the height down of this slot pattern and also have it wery close to the plate bottom all time even if you go with low power.... Think and think again... then you all shall get to same conclusion ;-))) :text-welcomewave:

And off course the travel distans and time that the reflux licuid can ceep/stay on eath plate level ( with out flooding) is wery important to get maximum of this plate......

For the first time I was able to understand the entire post in one read.

You are on a different level than the SD guys Harley. I wouldn't compare your designs to theirs for any reason. What you are doing is creating a commercial still that is designed from you heart/head/hands. You have a true passion for what you are doing, and your work reflects that. In fact it will stand tall long after all of us are gone.

Those fellas are aiming for market share in a retail world. Their parts are CAD designed for machines to produce. The Human factor is not involved. I am in no way denying their right to design/build/sell anything they want, and I do give them credit for being an ambitious group of fellas but their goal is money.
Your goal is a great finished product (spirits).
It's not really fair to compare the two. It's almost like you get to play a round of golf w/ top notch equipment, and they have to play with a pool cue, and a bastket ball. See what I mean?

Everything has it's place. For the fella that can't afford a $100,000.00 build, I'm sure a SD will suit them fine. For a fella that wants one of the finest stills in the world he would be wasting time there. We all get that.

You're a top shelf builder Harley. I'm proud to be able to say I talk with you on this forum. That actually means something to me. I believe everyone that is following your build(s) will agree. :handgestures-thumbupright:

This bubbelcaps pattern worked perfectly according to my calculations, so I'm very happy with this result, see for yourself, the steam have Always contact to the bottom of the plate... This is Wery important!

5500watt effect and from a 10-14% sugar mash ... but which I was quickly found that the bubbelcapsen must be round for at the top becouse the reflux drop is controlled by the rising vapor stream and pressed toward to the center of the column and also the cup / steamlock should be further down / closer to the plate/bubbelcaps under so this phenomenon becomes less so as it looks in the movies, the reflux can get across the flat bubbelcapsen and it's Certainly not good, the reflux should ALWAYS have such a long road that permit to transport himself before falling to the next level ...: idea:

Now I have tilted the steamlock / cup so that the reflux would stick to the column wall all the time but this did not help when the upward steam flow is as strong as it is at 5500watt and from such a strong mash ...
and walk / climb from bubbelcapsen outside of the plate center over of which is the entrance hole for the steam ...
so the recipe / solution to overcome this is both round / domed bubbelcaps top and lower vapor lock / cup / closer to the plate/bubbelcaps ...

Now learn this problem reduce/get smaller the larger column diameter you have .......

I cannot see the Vids from my browser but I think I know what you are saying...
Have you considered turning over the tops of your caps, and lowering them as you said to force the liquid out in front of the vapor?
I understand the high domes you have are allowing the reflux to settle under the vapor. If you made them much flatter the vapor can make a "wall" that the reflux will be pushed by.

I wonder if a cyclonic effect to the vapor can be achieved to spin the reflux out?
Like this inside the cap? Perhaps several of them set in stages?

Perhaps a very different idea... Something simple to build.

If you get the engineering right (pressure vs reflux) you may not even need a riser pipe. I think pressure can hold just like a valve design. Make a completely flat cap just large enough for your saw tooth pattern.

Harley,

I've been tracking your thread now across multiple forums to finally find the latest info here :)

Early you mentioned you were going to compare the performance difference of a single bubble cap versus multiple small caps.
Have you managed to do this yet?

Cheers,

Harley,

Early you said you wanted to compare single large bubble versus many small caps, did you ever get round to doing the comparison?

PS...love your all your work! and your condenser; it looks like just you, me and Kothe go to the trouble of using baffle plates.

My English issnt so god so a need to translate all fack tems/strange words , that’s why a didn’t write so much.
I am note up and running yet with my 8” and 12” column but in 4” a have tested a little and 1pc big single bubbelcaps seem to transfer more taste then 4pc small caps, but that is what some whisky taster people say… my self can note taste the different yeat, but a think the different shall be bigger in bigger columns…
I have a 4 plate with many small sd bubbelcaps in both 8” and 12” and also 1pc big 50/50 singel bubbelcaps column in both this size so in start of next year a shall test this to 100% and some whisky people shall taste the “white dog” and se if they can say what give me most and best taste transfer…
I am most this time on a close Swedish distiller forum: http://arc.forum24.se/arc.html

Next project is to made 3pc 20cmx100cm copper column filled with pall rings to produce pure vodka and here am testing a combinated packing supportplate and distribuiting plate of the reflux that going down...
I shall have 1pc 300cm hight packed column with 16x16x0,5mm ss304 pallet ring and 1pc of my super reflux cooler on top of this… mayby/hopefully a get out 30-40 liter 96% per hour from a 6-8% mash with this solution…

As you see from the above pictures on pallet ring so the next project is to produce a number of 8 "sections in copper “off course” with a height of 100cm for vodka production filled with 10x10x0,3mm pallet ring and some also with 16x16x0,5mm pallet ring so a can compare what size that gives me the best results to 33 000watt power and with my super shoot gun reflux coolers in copper ...
As you also can see I have a combined packing support plate and distribution in bottom of each 1 meter section which has an open area that exceeds the column diameter so I do not get any constrictions where ...

This shall be without any electronic temp/water controll becouse we have EX/ATEX = explosionproof on/in the boiler and about 2 meter around it in Sweden and a think the hole/all EU..... and we must also be below 1 bar/15psi with ours safety valves......

More pictures will what suffers ..

Hi,
Yes, a have some dished bottom and also some hemisfärisk/ half ball top, to my next boiler build that shall have about 300liter mash volym and a great space for the foam….
I go for ss in the boiler for this is much easier to clean and copper in all the steam phase for best taste and heat/could transfer…

Your threads are wearing out my mouse wheel Harley. Maybe once you get tired of spending $$$$$$$$$'s I can buy a bit of your well crafted labors.

I may need to be "put down" soon.

Many thanks for this nice words.

Have just started to rebuild an old insulated 300 liter milk tank to boiler.

Here you can see 3pc 4 " inputs to 70cm long ATEX / EX immersion heaters ( with certificate) with as low surface effect as 3,41watt cm2 to meet the requirements and have ATEX / EX demand in the EU.

There will be a 3mm stainless steel top “hemispheric” On top for the foam expansion space.

Ahhhh Getting to the Boiler. It's almost Party Time!!!

That boiler is very similar to the materials I purchased to build mine.
I used a conical base but the dome, and dimensions are very similar. I also looked at retired dairy containers, and found them too pricey for my budget. Can't wait to see your project up, and running.

I may need to be "put down" soon.

Can you share the plate specifications?

Hole percentage, and the down-comer percentage? If not I understand.

Thanks for sharing the picts. It keeps me off YouPorn...

What are you doing Saturday night ...

Self so I sit and count and sketches on a product cooler in 4 "x100cm stainless to match my 8" reflux condenser in copper and designed for the maximum 35 kilowatts ...

Stainless is no fun materials to build the product cooler :crying-yellow: of the because it "leads" far too little to copper, which is reflected in the extremely low gas velocity that you must have to copper ......

My 15pc ATEX/EX heaters have arrived at last…. :grin:

Here are 3pc 240 volt 5500 watt heating elements .... but it is only 1pc that is approved to ATEX / EX ( explosion proof) for use in distillation plants in the EU and of course so is everything in the wet part of stainless ... .. and now maybe you all understand why I have 4 "connections in the boiler to the electricity cartridges. ....

Of course, these are manufactured within the EU for the EU's demands ...

Here you have some links to company that sell ATEX/EX electric heaters with certificate for use inside EU..

They are not cheap but you Must have it inside EU if you are legally manufacture/ User….

My own have 5500watt 240 volt 3,1watt cm2 and are 700mm long with 10cm cold part in beginning... and 2,5" BSP tread so 4" conections is a good size.
