The process for distilling the cedar leaf oil involves the application of steam @ 100°C - 212°F at the bottom of the tank. The " cook " is done when the steam breaks through at the top. Uninsulated this required 5 - 6 hours depending on ambient temperature. The time required was reduced by 2 hours after insulating with the HPC® COATING. This new coating is the latest addition to our thermal protection package and is right out of research and development. HPC® COATING is designed specifically for straight backside conduction.
A final build coat was applied before the SUPERTHERM ® \ ENAMOGRIP ® topcoats with a final thickness of 250 mils ( 250/1000" or 1/4 of an inch ). The final readings showed a surface temperature reduction from 100°C / 212°F to 24.7°C / 76.46°F.
The total coating system is comprised of :
~ RUST GRIP ® to eliminate any possibility of CUI ( corrosion under insulation )
~ HPC® COATING no mold, mildew, fungus or other biohazards growing in the insulation
~ SUPERTHERM ® no deterioration by weathering ( exterior application only ) for at least 10 years
~ ENAMOGRIP ® on the front only to protect the SUPERTHERM ® where the boiling hot water is poured out.
