Modern equipment is easy to operate, saves space, and consumes less water and electricity. It allows you to solve most of the problems you might encounter when distilling.

The KPD-type distillation equipment is protected by industrial design No. PDO 2005-36193, issued by the Industrial Property Office in Prague.

Advantages:

  • easy to operate;
  • takes up less space;
  • saves on water and energy;
  • offers a number of working modes;
  • has an in-built copper catalyst that reduces the harmful content of the distillate to a minimum. 
  • Description of the equipment

    All parts of the equipment that come into contact with the process media are made of stainless-steel according to DIN 1.4301. The outer surfaces are polished.

    • The heating boiler and the catalyst are made from copper. The surfaces of the copper sheets and dephlegmators are forged and stained.
    • The cooling and rinsing water pipes are made of copper.
    • The craftsmanship of the whole equipment is at a very high level, which guarantees considerable reliability and durability

    KPD-type distillery equipment is made up of the following parts:

    • Raw material boiler

      Flat vertical cylindrical vessel equipped with a fractional dephlegmator. The bottom and the cover of the boiler are made from copper.

      The boilers include:

      • a copper stirrer that copies the shape of the bottom,
      • an electrical motor and transmission with a vertical shaft,
      • pouring spout,
      • drain valve equipped with an “open position” sensor and audible alarm,
      • inspection and cleaning hole

      For heating this type of distillery, we recommend gas heating. Gas heating equipment is suppled as standard. We supply an insulation board below the boiler to protect the floor tiles.

    • Rectification column with a dephlegmator and catalytic convertor

      The rectification part is supplied in a standard 3-level design. The dephlegmator is made up of a tubular bundle. The catalytic convertor has a copper lining.

      Steam enters from the boiler to the bottom part of the column, which serves to separate the foam; it the enters the bottom part of the rectification column and bubbles through a layer of liquid on each of the individual levels. The steam is enriched by the alcohol component and separates itself from the water and other undesirable substances on each of the levels. Each level works as a separate distillation stage. The steam then goes into the dephlegmator and the catalytic converter. Part of the alcohol vapor is cooled in the dephlegmator. Vapors condensed in the dephlegmator create a reflux.

      The size of the reflux (cooling of the dephlegmator) governs the entire distillation process. With a large reflux, a distillate of higher alcoholic strength is obtained, and with a small reflux the resulting distillate is weaker.

      The catalytic convertor, which releases carcinogenic ethyl carbamates and cyanides from the alcohol vapors, is located in the upper column extension.

      For perfect control of the distillation process, the column is equipped with an alcohol vapor temperature sensor, which serves to control the supply of cooling water to the dephlegmator via a solenoid valve. This makes it possible to optimize the cooling water consumption when cooling the dephlegmator and thus facilitates the overall operation. At the same time, it ensures stability and sensitive regulation of the whole process. This is also facilitated by very accurate temperature measurements taken using a digital thermometer.

      The operating mode is controlled automatically and does not require supervision.

    • Condenser
      Stainless-steel apparatus with a tube bundle serves for the gradual condensation of alcohol vapors. The cooling mode is controlled automatically and does not require supervision.
    • Epruveta test equipment
      Stainless-steel test assembly with a glass flask that protects the inside of the meter for checking the distillation of the distillate before it is led to the alcohol meter.
    • Overflow drip armature
      A valve with a tank serving to separate drips from the core of the distillate.
    • Alcohol meter
      OLM4Ti stainless-steel measuring system is an integral part of every DESTILA grower and fruit distillery technology.
    • Rinsing equipment
      Rinsing heads are located at the top of the column (in the catalytic convertor extension) and serve to clean the entire column. Water is sprayed across the entire cross-section of the extension, then it flows through a valve into the boiler, from where it is discharged. A spray head is also located at the base of the column and in the yeast tank. In addition, nozzles are installed for rinsing the ball valves and the inspection hole glass.
    • Yeast tank
      Stainless steel tank of the same volume as the raw material boiler. It is heated by waste cooling water, it is equipped with an inspection hole and an internal spray head. It is used to suck in the yeast using a vacuum pump and preheat the yeast before filling into the boilers
    • Gas burner
      A semi-automatic atmospheric burner that serves for easy and safe heating of the processed yeast. The power is changed by a switch on the automatic control block.
    • Tank

      ​​​​​The stainless-steel tank forms the main supporting element of whole of the equipment and creates a combustion space for the burner. Internal thermal insulation prevents undesired warming of the surface and reduces the risk of burns.

      In addition to heating with natural gas or propane (or a propane-butane mixture), solid fuels, steam or electricity can also be used.

    • Oil separator

      ​​​​​​This tank is part of the vacuum pump system, it serves to prevent oil leaking from the pump.

    • Vacuum pump

      ​​​​Equipment for creating a vacuum in the fermenting system. An oil-lubricated rotary vacuum pump is used. An oil separation tank is used to prevent oil leaking from the pump.

    • Control and distribution of water

      Cooling and rinse water control cabinets are part of the equipment, and include all connections and valves in a fully functional configuration. The equipment is connected to the water mains at a single point, although the water system as a whole is a two-circuit system.

      The rinse water and cooling water can be easily separated, and e.g. utility water can be used for cooling. The cooling water supply is equipped with an electronic device that prevents the formation and settling of limescale.

    • Electrical equipment
      An electrical switchboard and all control, regulation, signaling and interconnection elements are included, everything is connected to a fully functional unit. The equipment only connects to a three-phase socket.
    • Supporting structure

      Simple and light construction made of a stainless-steel profile, which directly connects to the stainless-steel tanks and supports all of the elements of the distillation equipment. This minimizes the space requirement for installation of the entire equipment.

      The operator has a clear overview of all of the controls in a single place.

      The equipment is not dependent on the supporting structure of the building and may be relocated to another area
