Week 3 into our 5 week country shut down and my mind is all over the place.
So I am looking at ideal vapor velocity in a column depending on the process currently underway i.e. stripping, spirit run, gin run, whiskey run etc. Each run will have a different preferred velocity.
The vapor velocity in a column to me is an important element as this is derived directly from the power input to the boiler.
I am struggling to find anything out there hence the post for those whom have this answer.
For example, I had originally looked at approx 1.21 m/s for a NW 100 / 4" column. But this translates for this size to approx 12 KW which is crazy.
Have a look to the Excel chart that I am trying to put together.
Thoughts as to preferred velocities
