Subject: solvent stills
Hi Larry, a question came across P2 Tech about purchasing stills. I want to point out the UL listing -- do you know what number the standard is? Is there a list of UL-tested solvent stills around? Thanks, ac
UL 2208 covers solvent distillation units with a maximum capacity of 60 gal (227 1) which are intended to recycle non-flammable, flammable or combustible solvents. These units are only investigated for use with the solvent(s) indicated in the instruction manual provided with the unit, and the units are used in ordinary locations. SDU's are also marked to indicate the solvent(s) or with a statement referencing the instruction manual.
UL 2208 covers SDU's intended for installation and use in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, the Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code, NFPA 30, and the Uniform Fire Code, published by the International Fire Code Institute.
SDU's covered by this standard has not been evaluated for use in hazardous (classified) locations.
