I would appreciate any help. I have a 58 liter boiler and would like
to be able to produce at least 1.5 liters of product per hour as I
don't have alot of extra time. Now I only have a 1.5" x 26" column
get about 500ml per hr @ 80% Abv. Do I need a larger diameter column
say 3" or 4" would that make a big difference ??? Please help...
A larger diameter column will indeed be the way to go, but please let me
caution you to approach this as you would a tiger ... with caution! Three
inches should present few problems, but if you suddenly jump from 1.5" to 4"
then you will probably have many sleepless nights. Correction, you WILL
have insomnia! That is an enormous jump in technique, and not one to be
taken lightly. In fact, you will probably find that 2" diameter with a 36"
column will suit you best, for not only will it be cheaper to build, but
will call for much the same techniques you now use with your 1.5" diameter
shorter column. Such a 2" column is perfectly capable of achieving your
goal, and probably with no changes to your boiler, for 58 liters is getting
to be seriously large! You should also be able to improve on your present
80% abv without even trying.
All the best,
