Squat still

Postby tubbsy » Fri Feb 28, 2020 12:00 pm

I saw a still on Instagram the other day that I haven't seen before. It looks very short and I was wondering if anyone knew what type of still it could be?

So would that tiny pipe coming out the top right be the Lyne arm?

Looks like it may run into a thumper doubler. Looks like an american style still..not sure why such a tiny lyne arm..prob adequate but still..

Not sure if thats a thermometer or pressure gauge up top if pressure gauge could be that the big round top is an inline thumper. But doubt it or I would think there would a product condenser hanging off the side. Without whole still in shot hard to tell whats going on..

At a guess its a x thousand litre stripping pot with 3x three loop elements with somewhere around 18, 27 or 36 kw and a built in worm condenser on top
Theres a few pics on google images of it and when the lid is open you can see green, their first still at a guess and now for display as more recent pics have it without the elements

I started typing this a few hours ago... beat me to it guys lols

RC, right on the money, its Larks first proper still, 500L job from memory. A display piece now in their bar in Hobart. Memories a little foggy after a sampling a few of their wares. Think I have a few photos of the distillery floating around somewhere. If you're keen can try find em.

Thanks guys. I guess I was thrown by there being no Lyne arm. I haven't see one like that before.

I would say the small pipe from the top section is an overflow back to the boiler.
