Just used my Brewers Hardware RIMM tube yesterday for the first time. I have a 4500W (at 240v) ss element from Lowes running on 110v. It touches the sides. I was also concerned. I ran 3, 10 gallon batches yesterday and the outside of the tube does get a bit hot. But when I tore it down to clean there did not appear to be any burn spots or anything on the element or the tube. Element was clean too. As far as I'm concerned I'm going to run it just like it is.
