In this type of still the wash (wine etc) is placed in the main vessel (which will be heated by a electric plate included) and in the other two smaller recipients. As the wine is heated, vapours are generated and these travel to the second and third pot (the vapours are released at the bottom of each pot through a copper tube).
The repeated condensation and contact with the liquid help clean the rising vapour as less volatile undesirable material and water vapours fall back. This will increase the percentage of purity.
