Still distillation, also called pot distillation or still water purification, is a means of drying minerals and chemicals from liquid substances using the still water process. In its most common form, still distillation stills pure water and removes any contaminants before boiling. However, in its other forms, still distillation is used to remove chemical contaminants and volatile materials from industrial and agricultural products. Still distillation is also used to complete the chemical treatment of liquids used for fuel production, as well as chemical treatments for flushing out the solids from sewage.
Although still distillation has many advantages over the boiling process, still distillation is used sometimes when something is more effective than boiling the substance. Still distillation is also a necessary step in the manufacturing process of certain foods, such as milk, juice and ice cream. For example, most juices must go through the boiling process before they are made available to consumers. Ice cream needs to be still distilled and its final product kept at an extremely cold temperature to prevent it from melting and becoming unhealthy. There are some still distillation processes that use vacuum or very high pressure to dry things at extremely high temperatures, but most still distillation techniques use a more economical method.
In still distillation, water is put into a container and still chemicals are added to it, usually ethanol. The container is then brought to a boil, whereupon the water and chemicals are separated from one another. After the separation, the water is left to cool while still compounds are collected on the lower part of the container. The water is now ready for use and is used as a source of water for still plants, such as grain mills.
A number of still distillation processes are used today. Some still use boiling as a part of the still process, but many still distill water on their own. Still distillation still uses steam, but modern still plants make use of solar powered heating units that do not boil water and instead just convert solar heat into energy, which can then be used to boil water.
One of the advantages of still distillation over other types of distillation is that it is less wasteful. The boiling of water is the major source of waste, as it uses up more energy than it actually does. With still distillation, only the water that is being distilled is wasted, meaning that there is only as much as there needs to be for any given distillation process. This is also why distillers are so commonly found in landfills.
Still distillation is a valuable process for many different reasons, including saving resources and using less energy and fewer resources to create alcohol. It is also generally safer than the boiling process, since the boiling water vaporizes chemicals that could cause some problems. The still distillation process may not completely clean water of all contaminants, but it is still a useful way to make sure that the water that comes out of the still is as clean as the container that it came out of.
