    2" by 40" is over half a gallon of wort!Well mine is 1" with a 5/8" diameter36" long solid
    element so it really doesn't hold much... besides it just ends up with the end of the sparge
    water at the end...

    Want to build a 30 gallon conical I see some have nice SS triclover valves for dumping and
    racking. Is the SS worth it? Could I save 100 bucs and use plastic. I am probably going to
    spend the money fo...

    Bar keepers friend can remove etched markings and advertisements from the distributor (like the
    company logo on an ss brewing or Bru gear conical) This is likely the REAL reason many of the
    companies ...

    Use a RIMS tube for a RIMS tube!I thought most of the triclamp rims tube kits are made of off
    the shelf sanitary fittings for things like the dairy industry. Which are just offset tees
    similiar to thi...

    hmmm.... when I priced it out it was closer to $80. I guess that's the difference between eBay
    and Home Depot.Yeah... The home depot doesnt even stock stainless pipe and fittings needed

    any idea if this would make a good RIMS tube? it's 15" long and has 1/2" inlet/outlet. I'm not
    sure of the element opening and I think there's a quartz sleeve that I need to remove but it
    seems like a...

    Do you have a closeup of how the cartridge heater is mounted in the compression fitting? Do you
    see any benefit in going up to 1-1/2" stainless steel pipe, or is 1" good enough based on the
    cartridge ...

    They are pipe clamps from Home Depot. The back side of the clamp has a lag screw built in. I'm
    on cell phone so can't do a link.I use the same brackets sourced at the home depot.. I found
    the DIY part...

    Were you able to stepmash with this setup? I know your current setp is longer, but I don't want
    to go too long because I have limited space. I like the 15-1/2" length you linked at the bottom
    tooyes I...

I have another PID/SSR compatibility problem. Your insights have been very good, but the spec sheets aren't very detailed.

I have a MYPIN TA4-SSR pid, a lyhpccom:ruike electronics industry "SSR-40D" ssr, and a QCA-302 240V//24v-controlled mechaical hvac relay.

I don't get the SSR to control the mechanical relay. A transformer at 24V switches it ok.

I suspect the PID isn't pushing out 24V AC to event the mechanical relay.

Any advice on matching PID/SSR/MECHANICAL ?
