You don't need one for control, but unless you've got either a handheld or a regular thermometer mounted in your tank, it's nice to see the BK temperature when you're cooling, or if you're using the BK element to maintain CIP solution temperature.

File under non-essential, but convenient.

The control panel is for this system

There are 4 KLD 3-way motorized ball valves, 3 March 815-PL-C pumps, ERIMS and Aeration system. A BCS 460 was used due to lack of availability of the 462. Thus there are more relays plus a rotary switch. The pumps are tied to 5 second time delay relays allowing the motorized ball valves time to open. The ERIMS has an inline magnetic flow switch to override the heater element to prevent dry firing. The system has manual override on burners, pumps and valves.
The kettles were supplied by Stout, the majority of the stainless hardware from BrewersHardware and the two 20 plate chillers are from DudaDiesel. The electrical equipment comes from AutomationDirect. The frame is 304 SS 2x2x.065. Burners are 23 jet natural gas supplied by BayouClassicDepot.
