    Hey, am thinking of putting something like this together. I'd like to put it in a toolbox or
    something similar. Assuming I used the same materials as you, do you think there is any chance
    I could get ...

  • Posted in thread: Conical Electric Copper/Settling Vessel with Recirculation on 01-10-2013 at 03:36 PM
    Starting to move on this. To save some money, I decided to use a band heater (TEMPCO Band
    Heater, 1600Watts,13.3 amps with a layer of KFLEX insulation) with the existing RIMS heater for
    the copper. Th...

    McMaster Carr, 4550T141 extreme temp heat tape gives 626 Watts on 120VAC (5.2 Amps) and costs
    $73.46This link might be of use 500 watts should take 10 gallons up 1 degree every 3 three
    minutes. (if i...

    I was actually thinking more of the better heat conductivity of copper rather than the cost.
    Can you explain more detail on the electrolysis issue?If you insulate the tubes well, the heat
    should trans...

    Is there a reason you went with stainless steel over copper for the heating tube?When I was
    testing I used Copper, and I still have one unit. It works fine and would be a good way to go
    to reduce the ...

    This is a fun site (look at the thermal section). will be a-lot of loss (additional time,
    maybe never) if you don't insulate. Using the calculator, I get, with 100% efficiency, 1009
    watts will bring ...

    The feedback I got, plus talking with a few engineers, I modified the design:1) Moved the pump
    inlets to the bottom of the conical, and one above the level of the trub. Sizing inlets to
    prevent cavita...

    Thanks for that link.He talks like the whole pot doesn't have to boil at once, but I gather
    that the whole pot has to be boiled even if a little at a time to drive off the "stinky"
    parts.I hope you ca...

    Can you post a link to where someone is boiling wort in a RIMS tube please?I would like to boil
    without a propane burner or a heat stick. I do BIAB but I don't think that makes any difference
    in how t...

  • Posted in thread: Electric Heating Element for RIMs/eHERMS on 11-10-2012 at 04:19 PM
    How will this save on the pump?I didn't see a picture of the spring in the tube. Does it rest
    against the sides of the tube or is it held in the middle by the rod?The rod is put through the
    spring and...
