NEVES, Carlos A.; GUTZ, Ivano G. R. and LAGO, Claudimir L. do. Automatization of a water distilling apparatus. Quím. Nova [online]. 1998, vol.21, n.5, pp.657-658. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40421998000500020.
A simple and inexpensive device to automate a water distilling apparatus is shown. It is composed by a magnetic floater placed in the water reservoir and a level control unit, which acts over the heating element circuit. In order to provide water saving, an electromagnetic valve is inserted in the water supply inlet. Some suggestions for the adaptation to other types of equipment are also offered.
