Additional Information

Essential Extractor Pro Series II Complete – 2″

2″ Diameter Column

The 2″ Essential Extractor Pro Series II is a reflux distillation unit incorporating the Pro Series Cooling System and a 2-piece column for the greatest versatility. By placing the cooling lines near the top of the distillation column, reflux is created where it is intended – at the top of the tower. This allows for the most effective use of the column filling by causing the refluxed liquid to flow down through it, resulting in a cleaner distillate. Crossing the cooling lines instead of leaving them parallel results in a much more efficient cooling system, requiring less cooling water while maintaining effectiveness. And, by having the cooling system in direct contact with the rising vapour you achieve a far more efficient and effective cooling than systems that surround a column with a cooling water jacket. The slow heat transfer rate through the thick column wall is much less efficient, and concentrates all of the cooling ability around the outside of the column. The result of jacketed columns is liquid channeling down the walls of the column, while not cooling the majority of the vapour as it is not in contact with the column wall. While such a system may operate faster, it is at the expense of quality.

The two piece column – another Brewhaus innovation – allows the top portion of the column to attach directly to the kettle, giving you a true Pot Distillation column, without having to purchase another column separately.

The unit uses a full-length column that is more than 3′ long, for true reflux operation. This results in a cleaner, more pure distillate. Included is Copper Mesh column packing. While adding copper to the distillation column can offer some definite advantages, some still prefer ceramic rings.

Solid Stainless Steel construction, using only dairy quality beverage tubing and high grade custom kettle components. We do not use utility pails or dairy milk cans for our kettles, which are not intended for welding or heating.
