The dephlegmation of these columns has been optimally preset by us, but you can change it according to your needs using the thermovalve. Distillates from a two-stage column tend to be smooth with no alcohol sharpness, full-flavoured with no trace of a watery component, and therefore the spirit is smooth with a distinct aroma at the end of the tasting, even when first inhaled or tasted. To increase the richness of the aroma, we recommend the installation of a catalyst, but this increases the overall height by 200 mm. The catalyst also reduces the presence of ethyl carbamate and hydrogen cyanide in the final distillate. This type of column is recommended for the distillation of all the above mentioned species in single-stage columns, but also for the distillation of pears, apples, apricots, mirabelles, grapes, plums, etc.
Two-stage columns are available in sizes 120 L, 150 L, 170 L, 200 L
