Distillation is a method of purifying pollutants through the condensation process. It can be used to clean tap water from chlorine and other harmful chemicals and is used for various household and medical purposes. To do this, the water must first boil, and then the vapor condenses back to a liquid aggregate state.
Distillation is more effective than filtering and successfully removes ingredients such as chlorine, fluoride and calcium. Distilled water helps to absorb toxins in the body but is devoid of minerals, so it is not recommended to use it as the only substitute for tap water. Other benefits of distilled water include its use for iron and vehicle, household jars with products, laboratory experiments, or even the preparation of crystal ice cubes.
Here’s how to prepare distilled water yourself:
1. Prepare the necessary containers
You need a large pot of 12-15 liters and a refractory bowl to put inside. Fill the pan to the middle with water and put the bowl to swim in it.
The bowl should not touch the bottom of the pan. That’s why it’s good to put a wooden or metal stand underneath it to prevent contact between the two vessels.
2. Provide condensation conditions
Turn the pan lid back (with the handle down) and fill it with ice. Once the process starts, you may need to get more ice.
The purpose of the cold lid is to cause liquefaction by contact with hot water from the boiling water. The formed water drops fall from the lid and collect in the empty bowl.
3. Heat the water
Liquid in the big bowl should be warmed to a boil, and the process may take about 45 minutes or for the time you need to collect the specified amount of water. If the liquid in the bowl starts to boil, reduce the heat.
4. Allow to cool
After the small container is filled with distilled water, you may stop heating. Take care when removing the bowl, because it will be very hot. Wait for a while to cool and pour into a glass bottle.
