I'm working with a burner from Ward burners, X-44 impinged. I'd like to have a brewery type controller in a Nema control panel to stop the distillation if the condenser ever fails or I need to turn it off.
I'd also like it to show the distillate temperature using a thermometer in the parrot so I can be aware of the temperatures for the burner input.
I have one for my electric brewery that has an emergency shut off on it that is red push and twist to reset type.
Would it be possible to do this with a lead going to the parrot to basically safe guard the still in the event that (and I know you guys/gals are gonna say I never should do this) walk away for a few minutes to do whatever else I need to do without worrying the condenser water has run out or some other strange occurrence is happening and the vapor is hot enough to escape.
I'd also without getting too complicated like to be able to control the gas input if possible to only run it as hard as the coolant water can cool the still to the set point I choose. I know this changes the way the still will work but being able to do this will allow me to see some things I'd like to test much easier.
Anyone have any good ideas?
