Great responses from both of you. It looks like I will have to redesign my rims tube based on your responses. Here are the pics of my current design. It was planned to use in a vertical position. The ball valve on top is my flow control, the vertical ball valve on the bottom is meant to be closed after mashing and then open the ball valve on the bottom right to pump over to the boil kettle (entire system will be hard plumbed-CIP). Thanks for your input and I like your RIMS tube design (very nice!) I think I will use your PVC design to cover my element wires if you don't mind. Thanks again.

OK. Based on the two responses above, here is my RIMS Tube redesigned with the element on the bottom. I actually like this design better anyway. I was not comfortable placing the RTD that close to the end of the element and I also needed the extra length on top anyway to "stand off" from the keggle. The bulk head fitting from Brewers Hardware will mount into the side of the keggle. Please note that none of the parts pictured are actually tightened or welded (it's just a layout) the RTD most likely will not hang down as shown. Thanks again for your input I'm very happy with the results. Any additional comments before I take it to production?This is a great website overflowing with information.
