Still Controller

Three SOLO (Automation Direct) Temperature controllers across the bottom are (L - R):
1. Kettle temperature - display only, no control
2. Dephlegmator temperature - This provides control of cooling water sent to the dephlegmator. Set the head temperature for the desired proof out.
3. Spirit Output temperature - This provides an audible alarm and emergency release of cooling water to the Alfa Laval condenser in case output product exceeds a pre-set threshold.

The controller also provides:
- Steam Boiler E-Stop output
- Auto/Manual activation of the Wash Return Pump
- Auto/Manual control of Dephlegmator cooling water
- Override of output over-temp audible alarm

Cooling Water Manifold

The Cooling water Manifold has 4 legs (left to right):
1. Dephlegmator Automatic - Electric variable valve visible in upper left, driven by the Still Controller
2. Dephlegmator Manual - typically unused
3. Alfa Laval Manual - typically used for condensing spirits
4. Alfa Laval Automatic - Electric solenoid valve visible in center (Provides emergency cooling in case of over temp in product out.)

Alfa Laval Chiller

Condenses spirit vapor into liquid out.

Wash Return Pump

Due to the "U" shape of the column, condensed wash collects at the bottom. Using two float valves and a relay inside the Still Controller, this return pump automatically pumps the condensate back into the kettle.
