100 Gallon Backwoods Series Steam Injection Boiler

The drawing above shows one of our Backwoods Series 55-100 gallon Steam Injected Mash Tun Stripping Stills with our Backwoods Series Spirit Safes.  The vessel to the left is the Steam Injection Boiler, the 100 gallon vessel in the middle is our 100 gallon Combination Mash Tun Stripping Still and the vessel to the left is a portable Spirit Safe.  All of our Backwoods Series equipment is built right here at our shop in MO. from used stainless steel food grade drums, tanks and kettles.

The unit in the picture below to the left is a 55 gallon Steam Injection Boiler.  It is filled with water and direct fired by electricity, propane, or natural gas.  This is an open system, so the operating pressure is only around 3 PSI.  The steam which is around 220� F goes through the pipe coming out of the top of the Steam Injection Boiler and down into the bottom of the Stripping Still.  The steam comes out of the pipe in the bottom of the Stripping Still through many small holes that have been drilled in the pipe. These small bubbles of steam heat the mash in the still boiler up to operating temperature fairly quickly compared to some other methods. This system makes noises like a thumper  when it is in operation, that is because this system operates very similar to the way that a thumper does. 

You can also use the steam injection boiler as a hot water source for all of your process needs. You can also use it like an HLT if you want to sparge Barley.  The steam from this unit is 100% Sanitary.
