My mistake, I lent all my books to a friend.
Seems the proper name is Fractionating Still. Above the pot is a tall
column filled with glass beads. There is a copper tube that is coiled
inside the column to allow temperature adjustment of beads. A thermometer
is mounted in the column.
Thanks for the correction.
