Not the other popular type of Distillation...

Was looking at a drawing of a distillation unit on LST's (Mr. Alferi's writings) and thinking about how it works. I didn't see dimensions on the drawing (wondering about the space it took), just the various components that make up the unit. One part I wasn't familiar with - what is a manometer and what does it do? (And don't laugh...I am serious...)

the manometer must be an indicator of the pressure inside the vapor separator... and the pressure must be a by product of the salt and water separation process...

I will learn some of this eventually....smile.
