During simulations (to test the algoritms for automation) a few "logic" difficulties were encountered. The automation rules were just becoming so complex that that we decided to "eat-the-elephant one-bite-at-a-time"!
Article - thanks to Henk's experience! Henk started up his brand new 250L and 500L jacketted stills from Distillque and for a first "stress test" he filled the boilers wth water to test for water and vapour leaks.
First the boring stuff: Why do we want to automate stills? Alembic still technology is more than 1200 years old. Reflux still designs almost 200 years. What will our generation contribute to distilling technology?
