StillDragon 100 Litre, is 4.5kW Element enough?

edited June 2021 in Configuration

We have a 100 litre StillDragon column still, is a element of 4.5kW enough to distil 100 litres?



  • Hi Billy.

    The calculator says you would need about 7000 watts for a one hour heat up. Looks like you have enough power for a 2 hour heat up time.

    I see only your other post that you have run the system. Can you confirm that your heat up time was approximately 2 hours?

    4500 watts should be plenty to run with once brought to temp,,,,though not necessarily optimal.

  • Go for 5.5kw minimum.
