I have a 6x6x4 box from Lowes (Carlon brand) and a SYL-2352 PID has about 1/4" to spare if top mounted. A 25a SSR w/heatsink clears no problem.

I've got a 20qt from MoreBeer & it has the same tooling marks in it. I guess this justifies the $$ for the knockout punches. I'm guessing a hole saw may end up doing the same thing.

Possibly some kind of passive in kettle RIMs. A tube over the element with a riser at one end should increase flow.

The 120v system is for brewing in my apartment where 240v is not available. I already have the PIDs, kettles, elements, SSRs for both systems. If 7500w is available why not use it.

120v/2000w & 240v/5500w together in keggle

I'm starting my control box build & plan to have both 120v & 220v control systems in it. Can I run both at the same time in a keggle for 7500w or is there a reason this should not be done?

Check your local co2 supplier first. Some only exchange cylinders, makes no sence to buy a new cyl only to swap it out for an old beat-up one.
