Re: [Distillers] how much vacuum?
- Use the link below to determine how much vaccum will have to be pulled to get the desired boiling point. Doubtful that you can pull enough vacuum to significantly lower the boiling point with normal household equipment such as a shop-vac.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiling_point

Date: Thursday, December 31, 2009, 12:02 PMGreetings all,
I have been reading the file on vacuum still design. The first question I have is how much vacuum is enough? Could you use your Shop Vac? I Found a vacuum pump in the garbage and it is 1 hp BUT is 3 phase. I like the idea of lower temperatures, so I'm thinking about it....
