Distillation is used to separate pure water from a thicker liquid substance, such as ink.

It does this by heating the water, which then evaporates and rises, leaving the ink. It then travels down a tube, surrounded by a condenser which changes it from water vapor back to water, and then it falls into a beaker at the other end.
