PEX for heat exchange?
Has anyone tried PEX as the coil in their heat exchanger? Cheaper, easier to bend, as easy to plumb, good to 200*.
I know its thermal properties are nowhere near copper's, but if sitting in a few gallons of water, will the thermal mass outweigh the lack of conductivity?
Would need to be careful around the heating element too.
Anyway, just thinkin' . . .
i guess you could counter that by using a much longer coil in the HLT, but then you are going to be taking up a good amount of its volume.
