New single tier build near completion
 
5 Attachment(s)
So I have finally just about finished my single tier build. Thanks to the many posters here that have provided help and guidance as well as very useful information! All helped me to create this stand.
I incorporated a swivel mount for the control panel and added a secure tippy dump to the MLT for a little more ease in dumping grains and then added a welded, removable grate to the top of the burners so that if there was ever a time I was using a smaller pot then I could easily accommodate the change. There are two pumps on the system and everything is done with quick disconnects. I went with the high pressure Baso safety valves and the STC solenoid valves for the system with a standard pilot burner.
The mash will be direct fire recirculated and everything is wired through the control panel and then plugged in through a GFCI plug.
Thanks again for all the help and I welcome any comments/critiques!

is that a electric starter I see, very nice set up

It's actually not an electric starter. Everything is controlled through the propane solenoid valve and baso safety valve which is basically controlled by the Love controllers.

Looks good ! I like your attention to detail & automation.

Are the Baso valves h19's? Where did you get them and how much.

ddknight 02-27-2009 02:11 AM

They are the H19 high pressure valves. I got them both from the same vendor off of ebay for about $64 shipped a piece. It was a lucky but great find.

That ebay link doesn't work... The Baso valves are quite expensive if you are looking at using something like the H19 for safety valves and then using another solenoid for main gas line delivery. Why not go for a combination valve??

Nice build anyhow!!

I thought about a combination valve but I got a really good deal on the safety valves at $65 a piece shipped and then got the stainless steel STC solenoid valves for $20 a piece from a friend of mine who didn't want them. At the time this was the way I knew how to set it up and only learned about the combo valves after I had previous mentioned materials. I think the combo valves would be an easy way to go in hindsight, though.

Can the combo valves handle high pressure? If so any info would be greatly appriciated.

Anthony_Lopez 02-27-2009 02:49 PM

There are both high pressure and low pressure combination valves. Any reason everyone wants to use high pressure? I think we need to get Nicksteck to chime in on this subject
