Duplast Relex Still
- Hi Everyone.
I am new to distilling and have just got myself a second hand Duplast
reflex still. The boiling chamber and the plastic reflux tower have
been renewed so it is in good condition. My question is has anyone
come up with a nice way of ensuring the seal in in properly or even
another way of sealing the the tower and the boiler barrel.
I have found that if I tighten the lid too much the rubber seal gets
squeezed out into the boiling wash and if its not on tight enough I
get leaks. Because of this in my first trial I got less spirit than
I should have because I lost approx 2 lts of liquid through the leaks.
The seal is new and nice and flexable.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
