I was involved in a workgroup that led to development of a UL standard for small distillation units (<60 gallons). This web site has a good description of the history.
Make sure the still you get has been tested and UL listed per UL 2208. Since manufacturers will mention this in marketing materials, an internet search on "listed UL 2208" should turn up some good leads. Good luck. ac
