That really depends on the size of your HLT and BOIL vessel. The 4500W elements would work well with anything from a 10 gallon pot (5 gallon batch) to a Sanke keg style brew rig (10 gallon batch).

What are you intending to use for your HLT and BOIL?

For a 4500W element - 4500W LWD Incoloy Element
For a 5500W element - 5500W LWD Incoloy Element

Seems off the shelf solutions are either hopelessly expensive of stupidly under powered...
