- Mar 1, 2013My 220 V, 30 A range has coils, but my hotplate burner is solid. That should allow for better heat transfer than my range, and it might reduce distillation time, which should save money in the long run.Robert

Has anyone thought of using a blower with ethanol or methanol to heat a still such as in oil furnace like setup?
