Essential oil distillers are used to extracting plant oils from plant material.
* Steam extraction is where the plant material sits above the boiler in a basket for our 50 and 100L reflux stills. Just remove dephlegmator and bubble plates, (leave the bottom one so the botanicas don’t fall into the boiler, or you can use a 4″ screen)
* Hydrodistillation is placing the plant material directly in the water in the boiler – Run the reflux column in Pot mode
* Commercial hydrodistillation distillers- >300L Double Jacket boilers, with an 8″ Pot Still to 4″ Condenser
