Professional distilling equipment

Whether you are looking to upgrade and expand your current distilling operation or start from scratch with a brand-new distillery, BM Engineering can supply all the professional distilling equipment you may need. Some of the distillation equipment for alcohol we provide includes:

  • Butterfly valves

Unitech split-body PTFE lined butterfly valves

Developed especially for the distilling industry, Unitech’s split-body PTFE lined butterfly valves are designed to allow ease of maintenance and their one-piece disc/stem arrangement ensures zero movement between the disc and stem.

These valves offer the following features and benefits:

  • Full PTFE liner allows for high temperatures (up to 180°C), chemically toxic and corrosive media.
  • Silicone resilient elastomer backup pad extends around the seat, including the disc hub. This provides uniform force sufficient for bubble-tight shutoff.
  • Self-lubricating bearings are SS with a PTFE coating.
  • Top and bottom secondary O-ring sealing prevents leaks to atmosphere.

Orbinox EX knife gate valve

For the mashing process in the distilling sector, we have Orbinox’s EX knife gate valve. The EX model knife gate is a uni-directional wafer valve designed for general industrial service applications. The design of the body and seat assures non-clogging shutoff on suspended solids. 

 Valsteam ADCA float and thermostatic steam traps

Designed for all types of low and high-pressure steam heating and process equipment, the FLT17 is suitable for an array of applications including unit heaters, heat exchangers, dryers, jacketed vessels and all the applications where continuous drainage is essential.
