Default New Brewing system gadgets

Here are a couple pictures of new components for the phase 2 brewery project, 1"OD outer tube with 1/2" SS inner tube CFC, O2 mixer, water heater/steam boiler. Chiller inside tube is 20 foot length of 1/2" OD .049 316 tubing inside a 1"tube with inner tubing silver brazed to modified swagelok fitting. Boiler is 4-20' lengths of 1/4" OD SS tubing wound over a 2" PVC pipe and coupled to a modified1/4"tube cross for water in at bottom and steam out the top. http://picasaweb.google.com/kevin.la...76763824483858

It looks like your system is taking shape. It is very cool. I want to see it married with the rest of your automation. Prost!

Connected a flowmeter to the water inlet and fired the boiler to find out how it works, was able to raise 1/2 gpm of water from 44 deg F to 184 deg F with the burner turned up fairly high. will have to plumb in a flow meter for the propane feed to the burner to get actual firing rate so boiler effiency can be determined then test it on new flow control hardware. A rough calculation of output is 35,000 Btu/h or 10.25Kw of heat, it should be able to heat 3.5 gallons of water from tap to strike temperature in less than 7 minutes.

It's things like this that make me wish I hadn't gone the software route.. I can build cool stuff but none of it is tangible heh

It's beautiful. I dream of the day when I am out of academia and making enough money to do things exactly the way I want to, rather than just the way I can afford to.

Can't wait to see how your full system turns out.

I was thinking about buying a tankless water heater as my "HLT" but I was a little concerned that I wouldn't be able to mod it for the output temperature I wanted. Are you planning to control the flame or the flow rate?
