The digital pressure sensor was the right idea, just the wrong product, look at the LM series
analog sensors with ss diaphragm and pvc body When mounted away from the hot process they
work well as t...

The automated unit was built with Opto 22 hardware and Ebay sourced valves and sensors. The
expected price for the control hardware would be in the $2,000 - $3,000 range with rebuilt mass

Been there and done that with the phase 2 brewery, place grain bill in hopper, hang auto drop
hop bags, connect fermenter, touch auto run icon and walk away. The control system has 16
analog I/O point...

I use the Belimo valves with a 24VDC supply and they work as well as when fed with 24VAC. The
diagram in #16 is almost right, loose the 555 ohm resistor and you should be there. Be prepared
for the 90...

Go with another VR8200, LP conversion valves for Banjo burners from Brewers hardware, a
Bernzomatic 200K LP 2 stage regulator from Lowes, Q314 & Q345 pilots and transformer from PEX
Supply. By firing ...

You will need a bigger enclosure to provide room for switches and transformer, something more
like 10X12X6 would be appropriate, don't start too small and lament the fact that there is not

For an enclosure something along the lines of a NEMA 12 or 4 would work as you will spill
something on it before you can say it will never happen. With the honeywell valves you will
need a 120-24VAC t...

A quick question, you want to go high pressure or low pressure propane, or NG. A couple things
are universal, the Y8610 ignition module and the Q345 pilot burner. If you want to go the high

Sialas, Sorry about the delay, about the only things that could happen are the internal
regulator is missing a spring (the one changed for conversion), or the inlet pressure has
tripped the over press...
