Help With 220v Outlet
1 Attachment(s)

Can anyone help me ID this outlet? I'm looking for a heatstick for my HLT that can heat up 12 gallons to 170 in a reasonable time.

From the google it looks like a nema 6-20 outlet but I don't have any electrical knowledge so I'm not sure.

I would like to buy this heatstick from High Gravity Brewing (http://www.highgravitybrew.com/produ...S-306p2514.htm) which has a 220v 30A nema 10-30r plug.

Can I just buy an adapter and use it on my 220v nema 6-20 plug? Is it the same amps?

Should I just go with 2 120v heatsticks?

Also I live in an apartment and the building is pre-war which makes me wonder about how good the wiring still is. Idk if they have upgraded it or anything.
