Is the temperature controlled so that water doesn't contaminate the methanol? I don't see a reflux mechanism in your picture.

I want my methanol to be 100% pure to feed back into the biodiesel process.


No.. My system is a removal system, not a recovery system. The difference is that with a removal system, we don't care what comes out the tap, we only care what's left in the pot.

With a recovery system, you only care about what comes out the tap.. what's left in the pot is not important.

That said, we can recover methanol at around 93% purity as reported by customers attempting to control that aspect.

Hope that helps,
