Benefits of vacuum distillation for gin:
- Boil at a much lower temperature
- Preserve aromas that are temperature sensitive
When using the round still for ginning you will be able to extract those wonderful flavors from certain botanicals which change their aroma characteristics at higher temperatures e.g rose petals.
This is the perfect vacuum setup for small trial runs during your product development phase, or if you simply want to experiment with vacuum distillation at home.
The water circulation vacuum pump uses water to pull a vacuum. It requires no oil what so ever to operate, allowing for a low maintenance, easy to use vacuum pump. Each vacuum port pulls vacuum separately allowing for either two separate applications or connect them together for double the "vacuuming" rate.
Max vacuum (Mpa): -0.098 (i.e. 98kPa differential when measured at sea level ambient pressure, or down to 4 kPa (at sea level) when measured as absolute pressure)
Air drawing ("Vacuuming") rate (L/Min) - 10 (this implies approximately 1.6 Liter of liquid "boiling off" per hour under max vacuum)
Voltage - 220± 10% / 50Hz
Water circulation rate (L/min) - 60
Power rate - 180 watts (200V/50Hz electric supply)
Capacity of water tank - 15L
