Default Picture update

Finally getting some progress updated. This 1st batch of pics are a little out of order from the rest to follow....

The burners are mounted....we only have 2 right now...the 3rd will be removed from our current system at the last minute....along with the 2nd pump.
I polished up the stand with 120 grit on the angle grinder...so now I am mocking up the the gas system.....then I will disassemble and paint the stand.

After that....it will be time to reassemble and get on to the electrical system.

The last 2 pics are of the gas manifold....the stand is flipped upside down.

Default More pics

For the burner mounts I welded these 18 guage flat bar with holes (don't know the actual name) to the frame. These allow me to adjust the burners. I wanted to keep this part cheap and simple, because I did not see the need for an elaborate adjustment system when it will only be adusted once....on initial fire up for fine tuning.

These pics are mainly of the stand with the burners and the gas manifold/valves mocked up...but not completely....just hand threaded together to see what fittings we forgot to buy...

The 4th pic down is the gas manifold....this was a custom piece of stainless that was made for a water flushing system for soda fountain equipment at my work....it did not work out for them...so they auctioned it off...I got it for $5....cost them $250 to have made.

Another pic of the burners....with manifold down below...2nd pic is of the Regulator set up from the tanks to the manifold. Right now, all we have are the standard BBQ 5 gallon tanks...so we will run them in tandem to increase surface area and limit frost up of the tanks.....and as you can see...they were generous with the black hose at the propane shop....

The last pic is of the Honeywell ignition modules that will monitor the pilots and burners....as well as provide the spark for ignition.

The chiller is a 40 plate model from Dudadiesel.com. They have a pretty great selection.....and are very affordable compared to the usual suspects you see advertised on all the big homebrew supply sites.

Got the chiller mount welded in place. It is a bracket from the scrap metal bin at work....can't remember what it was used for....maybe a vending machine security bracket.....

The holes on the bracket don't match up with the studs on the back of the chiller, so to keep it simple, I will just have a thin gauge bar that spans from stud to stud...basically clamping it in place to the upright portion of the bracket....this will make it even quicker to remove....just loosen a nut and lift it off.

OK....I got the pump mounts welded on the stand and finished sanding up the stand to get ready for paint.

Spent some time with the daughter washing up the stand...she loves helping...my Lil brew buddy.

We used engine primer and paint which is good up to 500 deg. I won't bother to paint the grill tops that will be in direct flame. We went with the "Cast Iron" color....looks pretty cool. After 2 cans of primer and 2 cans of Paint.....I still missed some spots...crappy lighting......sooooo we willl be getting one more can next week to finish it off.

While the paint is curing, I will be sealing up the gas system, and trying to figure out how to mount the pilot burners.

Nice work so far, I'd love to step up to a larger than 5 gallon system.
