Default Interested in an Electric Kettle Set Up? Come on in....

**Also posted in the vendor section**

Well we will be rolling out a kettle with a custom 1" stainless coupler that is specially designed for an electric water heater element. The coupler is designed so the electric heater element will sit flush against the coupler engaging the o-ring (no more bottoming out on the NPT threads).

Our question is, who is interested? The additional coupler and welding will be a $30-$40 charge. We also plan on welding a stud that can be used as a ground. Any input on this would be appreciated!

-Ben

Yes, I'm thinking of replacing my 15 gallon eHLT with a 20/25 gallon kettle. As well Im thinking of adding a 10 gallon kettle to my set up to do 5 gallon brews and partigyle's.

Can you weld tri clover ferrules too?

Our tooling is only set up for 1/2" couplers at the moment. It is something we will look into if the demand is high enough though.

How about a picture of it?

Sounds like something that I would recommend.
More info and an image would help all of us decide.

I would be interested in this. I am planing a 20 gallon 3 vessel electric system. I was planning on using Bayou Classic pots and mounting the elements the way Kal did; however, if you had a welded solution I would most likely go that route.

Sorry to be a tease guys but no pictures at the moment. The coupler will look like any normal coupler but it will be machined to work with a heating element. The welding will be the same quality as the welds shown on our site.

The biggest question that I still have is what size stud would you guys like welded on? Male or female stud? Metric or standard? And placement in relation to the element?

I would do 1/4 20. Within 6" of the element location.
