Those bulkheads look almost identical to mine... I'm guessing stainlessbrewing gets them from Swagelok. That picture is not very clear. Are those gaskets nice and flat? I think I would also need the...

Yes, the linked pdf on the page indicates a max load of 8 amp/250 v for the output, so I suppose an ssr would be required.

Curious. Which model did you get and where did you get. I haven't had much luck tracking down prices on the Thomsens on-line.

I appreciate the safety concerns, but I've already used the barrel as an HLT without any issues. I couldn't detect any softening of the plastic at that temperature, or anything like that. The only...

Thanks, that's an idea. I'll have to see if I can find one of those adapters.

What is the logic in putting the probe in-line with the pump? Is that what people usually do for their HLTs?

Yeah, I'll probably order from the US too. I have some stuff to pick up at the border anyway, so I'll pick up the elements at the same time.

Oh, one more question for you. How long does it usually take for the people you know doing 20+ gallons on 5500w to get a boil going? Yesterday I did a test and after 2 hours starting from 11C water...

It's an industrial location. But I gather from what you're saying that the kettle wouldn't have worked if the power source was 3 phase? The label on the element gives a rating for 240 (4500) and...
