Batch distillery (still)


Price drop!

I am selling a DIY 50L pot sill which has been professionally assembled and programmed. This is a very unique opportunity to acquire a functioning still for producing essential oils or as a sample still for professional and registered distillers etc.

The still is electronically heated and controlled using a PID controller and features a specific single/three phase heater manufactured in The UK by Heatrod Elements. The thermostat has been upgraded and the heating element can easily reach 100 Deg. C.

In addition, there is an SMC digital pressure transducer to ensure safe operation.

Additionally, the controller uses a PT100 temp. transducer in a SS case to control temperature to within 1 Deg. C.

Also, the barrel has been professionally welded and purged where possible to include a SS 316 low position outlet for cleaning in place along with a 2” dairy flange to attach the still head. All welds were undertaken by a coded welder.

The still head was sourced in the US and features a copper Lynn arm, a top temperature gauge and a features a copper/ss primary cooling reflux 3” column. Included in the sale is a 3” to 2” reducer that can be used as an infusion basket if required. The column is packed with copper wool.

In addition, there is a Thermo Merlin 75 recirculating chiller unit to cool the distillate. These units alone currently retail for approx. €2-4k on the second hand market.

Finally, included in the sale is a gravity filtration device that uses gravity to filter the distillate through active carbon/charcoal to remove impurities.

The entire unit was manufactured during Covid as a means to experiment with hand gel preparations and hasn’t been used since. It can of course be used as an experimental still for spirits if all the legal requirements are complied with.

The asking price is form as this reflects the value of the materials in the offering. Therefore I will not be accepting any offers below the asking.

It’s important that the eventual buyer have the system appraised by a professional electrician/engineer prior to operation. This is a condition of the sale
