Default SSR Relay Question for 4500W HTL

Folks,

I am doing a basic 4500W HTL running off a 3-Wire 30A connection.

Is this SSR O'K? Can't beat the price.

Should I add a fan or heatsink?

Thank you,

David

This is cheaper and I think more people use them.

And yes, you'll absolutely need a heatsink.
