Abstract : The patent describes a portable stainless steel water distillation unit capable of producing sterile, pyrogen-free water in a single distillation. A filtering section permits the use of deionizing resin or activated charcoal. A series of baffles permit the incoming water to be preheated by a portion of the steam. Another series of baffles filter out particulate matters from the steam on its way to the condensation chamber where it is effectively cooled but isolated from the feed water. The relationship of the elements enables the compact, durable unit to function at maximum thermal efficiency.
