Abstract

With the decline of national petroleum reserves, the government has launched a plan to increase the use of biofuels, one of which is bioethanol. Therefore, it is necessary to design bioethanol distillator machine. The research methodology starts from identifying needs, literature study, design concepts, then design and calculation. From the calculation result, the distillator produces 5 liter/hour of ethanol, vapor required 50 kg/hour, heat required 514102 kJ, and fuel which takes 10 kg/hour. This machine has a tank with a diameter of 400 mm and height of 500 mm. Reflux construction using 4 inch diameter pipe, length of 2000 mm, and spiral copper pipe length of 3000 mm. Reflux works to lower the temperature from 100°C to 78°C. Condenser use tube with diameter of 200 mm and length of 600 mm, length of spiral copper pipe 6500 mm. Condenser is useful to lower the temperature of 78°C to 24°C.
