What element are you going to use? What size batches are you doing?

Sweet!!! Thanks!

I do five and ten gallon batches. I am making a keggle MLT. I already have your stainless sparge arm, which is awesome and I'd recommend it to anyone. The element that I'm planning to use is a 4500watt 240V but I'm gonna wire it for 120V. I meant to order one that didn't fold back but I ordered the wrong one. I may have to bend it to make it fit.

Do you bend it to avoid touching the tube wall? How do you wire the element to 120v? I only have a 220 receptacle on my controller.

Yes you would want he element to not touch the walls if you can get away with it. If you have 220 VAC then use it. There is no need to go 120 when you have 220 available.

If i can get a 220v 2000w element, would that be better than a higher wattage element?

I cant really start a war on what is better or worse 120 VAC or 220, 2000 watt or 5000 watt. I am sure you can understand that. But a 2000 watt 220vac element will work wonderfully.

Cheers

Mine just arrived! It is freaking awesome and I can't wait to use it, but it may be a month or two while I wait for the rest of the build to finish (I work a lot).

My heating element seems to almost completely fill the inside diameter of the tube. It won't restrict flow, but I don't see how I can prevent it from touching the sides. Any advice?

Damn Dan that got there fast! I figured you had to wait long enough from the "other" company. I went ahead and shipped it priority for you.

What element are you using? You shouldn't be touching the sides. Not sure exactly what will happen if it touches the sides. I doubt anything because you are completely submerged in liquid. But I really don't know because I have never ran into that. You said your going to be a month or 2 let me do a few tests with mine. I will replace the element with one that touches the sides of the tube and test the heck out of it. Sound good. I have a brew day planned for a week from tomorrow. I can test it then. Sound good?

Pictures? Post up some picts of the system you have and the element your using too..

Cheers
Jay

Yeah man that was fast. Thank you very much! The brewstand is still being built so it's at my welder's house (so no pics) but it's going to be a single tier, three keggle, propane RIMS system.

It won't let me upload a photo like it normally does... Standby..:



Edit to add: for some reason the option to upload isn't there, but in all other threads, it shows up again, so there's something that I must not be aware of.

I have a 1.5 OD tube & the fold back element is touching the side. Is there a safe way to bend it at the base & angle it away? I think that is what caused my last element to burn through cause it was touching the side.

Does anybody know what TRLW mean for a heating element? Thoughts on copper vs SS?
