NO! This is an open frame relay with line voltage exposed all over it. Don't go near it while
it's energized.288697Brew on :mug:Yes, of course. I wasn't about to. I power off the box before

Are you driving this relay with a straight on/off voltage or are you using a pulse width so
that you can run the element at less than 100%? If you are doing PWM, you can't use a
mechanical relay, it h...

I'm switching 23 A (5500W heating element). Using 120V on the coil by using one hot lead and
the neutral on my 240V line coming in. This last time I used it, sometimes it would buzz,
sometimes do noth...

What's the relay model # (or link to ordering page), and what voltage and current is it
switching?Brew on :mug:Here it is:

I would be expect any relay coil to have enough pull on the contacts that you can use it in any
position. If it is flat, gravity helps pull.on the contacts, works fine. If you rotate it 90

Anyone have issues with their relay chattering when they mount it vertically? Mine started

If you are going to throttle the pump flow, then it needs to be on the outlet side of the pump.
Throttling using a kettle valve can cause pump cavitation and damage.You do want to run at the

Would it make sense to put a valve on the outlet side of the pump to control the flow out so
you don't end up with too much wort on top of the grain bed. I can understand not constricting
the flow int...

Sorry, but its not going to make one crap of difference. 2degrees is a joke, right?That's not
what I've heard. A couple of degrees can make a difference with the fermentability of the wort.

Thanks all. In speaking with Auberins (who supplied the PID), it appears that my mistake was
constricting the flow through the pump. I need to have it pumping at full throttle in order to
keep from ha...
