A little update - the 2nd package from Auberins arrived last night. Opened it up to find the PID, heat sink and the 2 PT100 temp probes. Didn't realise how thick the probes are.
Will be looking around for a cabinet to mount all this in along with some switches. The plan of the dual head pump has come to an end following advice from March Manufacturing that they aren't suitable for food at temperature. So a single pump is the way forward allowing for an additional pump later on if needed. Will get a sketch up shortly of the flow scheme and valving arrangment.
Purchased 2 coils of 12.7mm OD annealed copper pipe (6m), a variety of fittings, a soldering torch and solder. Picking up a 7.6L pot later in the week and will then start on coiling the pipe trying to get as much in the pot as possible. Will be trying to do a double coiled pipe having the internal pipe at a tight diameter and the outer pipe slighlty bigger. Might not be feasible though - all depends on the diameter of the pot. Need to get some flux and emery cloth to clean the pipe and also check the solder doesn't contain lead.
