Any pictures? How far of a gap are we talking? You might be able to just get a thicker silicone
oring. If not, silver soldering is probably the best/only solution.

The better plan is to wait. Most beers should show carbonation after two weeks, but that's not
at all uncommon to have them take longer. Are they in a cool space? Try to get them up in the
70s if poss...

You can adjust temps fine. The algorithm is more about how quickly your system heats and loses

Awesome, what are you using ther peri pumps for, and where did you get them/cost?

That's a neutrik power connector, not an XLR. But the XLR's need to be soldered. Not sure about

I'll throw out a question - why have a separate circuit just for PID/pumps? Do you have a 120v
20A circuit available? That'd be more than enough. If you're running the typical
march/chuggers, they max...

There's people here that do it and it works fine. Personally I'd rather mount to the outside
instead of dicking with a fan, but do what you want. Just check and make sure the fan is
keeping it cool en...

Fotek's spec sheet says max temp is 80C.Auber's site says not to go above 70C.Crydom's spec
sheet says max internal temp of 120C.If you have it mounted to a heatsink outside, it really
shouldn't be ge...

It's definitely a higher utilization. In industrial applications SSRs are recommending to be
sized to only use around 70% of the max rating. That's for continuous industrial use though.
Would it be go...
