Mosccas 8,5" rum column

Postby Moscca » Tue Aug 27, 2013 10:46 pm

Today I started with my build. I decided to build when i found the stainless steel pipe very cheap here in Honduras. I payed for 4' 304 SS pipe, outside diameter 216, 3 mm wall thickness + 2 square SS plates of 9" the sum of 100 $. I will work with flanges, which I plasma cut and drilled at work. I made also one reduction from 200 to 216 mm for the connection at the still. Next swing I will make another reduction from 216 to 76 and cut 2 more flanges. I had a friend who works in the dairy industry who brought me the 3 3" ferrules and some 1/2 and 3/4 NPT nipples. He promised me to trow in also 2 3" 90° bends next time. All the other parts will be from SD. For the dephlegmator I looked at my 4" SD one. The height is 1,5 times the width, so I'm thinking of making this one 320 mm high. I will put 50 % more pipes, 12 pipes from 1 1/4". I will only making spirits run with this column.
my daughter promised me to help :
I got this far, ran out of argon :

Hey guy's, my 8"-project is on hold for the moment.
I moved 2 years ago in my newly build house and it is still not finished.
I made a deal with my wife that when I finish the house, I can build a 36m2 distillery in the bak of my garden.
I hope to finish half 2014.
Meanwhile I'm doing research for single bubble cap/plate.
Thanks for the interest.
Meanwhile I'm having great fun with my 4" Dash 1 from SD.
Next holiday I'm going to try the sieve plates for the first time and see how it affects flavor.
I will try also 1 sieve plate under 2 bubble plates.
