What to Look
for When Buying Water Distillers
Brand Name Water Distillers
It is important to buy a water distiller from
a reputable company with a sound line of brand names. Buying a well known water
distiller will last 25 years or more with only minor upkeep and maintenance. Small
water distiller companies often carry lesser known brand water distillers and often go out
of business. Buying water distillers from these companies creates the possible
problem of not finding spare parts in the life of your water distiller. There are
names in water distillation products worldwide: Polar Bear water distillers, Durastill
water distillers, West Bend water distillers, Pure Water water distillers,
and Precision. Each has over
20 years experience in the design and manufacture of water distillers and a successful
financial record to back it up.
Production Rate of Water Distillers
Production rate is the specification that
measures the rate at which water is produced through the water distiller. Water
distillers range from 3 gal/day (1gal/8hrs) to 12 gal/day (1gal/2hrs) and more for
commercial application water distillers.
Types of Water Distillers
Water distillers are either Manual water
distillers, Semi-Automatic water distillers or Automatic water distillers. Manual
water distillers produce one gallon of water at a time due to limitations of the
distiller's boiling chamber size. While automatic water distillers are connected
directly to the water line and can continually produce distilled water.
Water Purity of Water Distillers
Distillation, the process of removing
contaminants from water, removes 98%-99.9% of distilled water contaminants producing
distilled water. The distance between the boiling chamber and condensing coil along
with the construction material is determinate of a water distiller's ability to remove
Water Distiller Baffle Distance - When water boiled
it is first converted to wet steam and then to dry steam through water distillation.
Contaminates rise with wet steam, but not with dry steam. The longer the distance
between the boiling chamber and the condensing coil produces more dry steam resulting in
purer distilled water from your water distiller.
Water Distiller Construction - The best construction
material is surgical quality stainless steel.
Water Distiller Storage Containment - The best
materials for water distiller storage is stainless steal or glass. While glass maintains a
high level of water purity, it is not as durable as stainless steal, which is why it is
not the most reliable storage container used by the water distiller.
