Brew Mart's new premises less than one mile from junction 30 on the M1 Motorway
The process starts with heating a liquid to boiling point. The liquid evaporates, forming a vapour. The vapour is then cooled, usually by passing it through pipes or tubes at a lower temperature.
The cooled vapour then condenses, forming a distillate.
The principle for the operation of a distiller is easy. Heat water to boiling in an enclosed container. Inorganic chemicals, significant non-volatile organic chemicals, and microorganisms are left behind or killed in the boiling chamber as the water evaporates.
A salt water distillation mixture separates saltwater to produce pure water and salt. During the process of the distillation the water starts to evaporate, and that vapour then cools down to form pure water.
A second container then collects the purified water.
The advantages of distillation are:
Distillation apparatus kits consists of a boiling flask which is attached to an adapter which is holding a thermometer (to determine the boiling temperature of the liquid). The adapter connects to a condenser into which cold water is constantly passed through.
Brew Mart has all the distillation apparatus need to produce a perfect distillate.
