  • Posted in thread: What PID should I get? on 05-06-2015 at 12:59 PM
    I would like to use a k type thermocoupler. I would like to a way to disconnect the wire from
    either the pot or controller (preferably controller ) suggestions? All I find r probes with
    wires to conne...

    ... from what I've read, once you get the BK up to boil with a 5500 watt element, you run it
    about 50-60% after that to retain a nice boil. So it'd more like 15 amps at that point. Same
    goes for HLT I...

    The RIMS tube in my setup is midway to the lowest point. Top to bottom is mash tun, pump
    (lowest point), RIMS tube, then back to mash tun. With the RIMS tube lower than the top level
    of the mash tun i...

    Rtd probe shown at top of RIMS.Is your probe reaching the wort? Did you calibrate the
    temperature on your controller?My RIMS tube is horizontal instead of vertical. I don't know
    that that makes a diff...

    I did some tasting over the last 4 days with 2 - 10gallon batches and found that when running
    my MYPIN TA4 @ 143 it will keep the mash right at 151 inside the cooler. I'm not sure why the
    controller i...

    Getting to within 1 degree seems about right. You might have to change the precision of the
    control from single degrees to tenths of a degree. When you tuned with the water, were you
    recirculating it ...

    Please provide us with the model/type of PID and the settings.Regardless of the PID settings,
    once the set point is reached the PID should hold temp.Please also explain your method for
    autotuning.

    Note that a DPST switch capable of switching 25amps/240v is pretty expensive. Most people buy a
    contactor and a switch for @ $20 and use that to switch main power.

  • Posted in thread: Circuit Verification on 03-31-2015 at 07:53 PM
    My idea was to place the switch between the PID and the relay that controls the element. There
    is no way the PID will have more than 15 Amp output, the PID is fused at 0.75 Amp.Ok, but when
    SSR's fail...
