Description

The compact distillation columns formerly known as "cactus" columns for their shape offer unrivalled variability and are often supplied to experienced customers who know exactly what to expect from this type of technology. These are not devices for high-volume production and processing, they are often functional design technologies for e.g. restaurants, breweries or distilleries. 

The distillation takes place in a brew kettle, above which there is a steam dome, usually in the shape of a sphere, into which an aroma basket for herbs, juniper or fruit can be mounted, for example for distilling gin. One of the advantages of arranging the rectification column next to the boiler is that as the spirit vapours pass through the connecting pipe, a so-called zero-pass rectification takes place, where part of the condensed vapours are returned to the boiler before the first rectification. In the column, rectification, enrichment with the alcohol component, takes place, where the alcohol vapours pass into a controlled dephlegmator or catalyst and then condense in the condenser.

By means of a two-way valve above the steam dome, the direction of the alcohol vapours can be easily changed from the steam dome directly into the cooler. This distillation is used in the production of geist distillates, the production of gins and other distillates from bulk alcohol that do not require an increase in alcohol concentration.

The distillates have a distinctive mild flavour with a very rich aroma, and you can distil all kinds of fruit, juices, wines, beer and spirits.

Standard equipment:
Double-jacketed boiler design with safety assembly, with DN100 outlet valve.
Full brass design of distillation boiler, lid, rectification column and deflegmator with stainless steel tubular cooler. Stainless steel boiler cladding with thermal insulation.
Motorized stirring, boiler and rectification column lighting, DN250 filling hatch with DN100 boiler sight glass, automatic distillate and dephlegmator temperature control, rinsing head and piping for pressure cleaning by pump (CIP).

Heating options:

  • electric heating (standard control or smart control TOUCH panel)
  • gas heating (natural gas or propane)
  • solid fuel (wood or coal)
  • combined heating (electricity / natural gas)

Basic parameters:

  • overall height from 2 500 mm to 3 500 mm *
  • length of one distillation cycle 100 to 180 minutes *
  • cooling water consumption 120 - 500 L *
  • maximum strength of fruit spirit 65% - 83%
  • optional disabling of the rectification stages

Additional optional equipment and services can be purchased for each distillation column:

Vacuum intake of mash with vacuum pump and preheating tank + preheating of mash
Chemical CIP cleaning, catalyst, heads and tails tanks, special closed parrots and ZEHR gauges
Stack exchangers, pots and vessels, various pumps and other accessories
Installation of equipment throughout the EU including commissioning

* Parameters may vary depending on boiler volume, heating capacity and number of boilers

It is not legal in the Czech Republic to distill spirits without a legal permit. The sale / relocation of distillation equipment is subject to reporting requirements. The conditions for the production of distillates in the Czech Republic are defined by the Alcohol Act No. 61/1997 Coll.
