Default My HERMS build

After several months of researching HBT and planning my Gas/Electric HERMS, I've finally started putting parts together. Special thanks goes out to Pinup for my stand and Kal for sharing his amazing plans for his own rig. I've got the HLT pretty much rigged up, and I should have the MT and BK finished by next weekend. Then it's on to the control panel.

All stainless steel components
1/2"Tri-clover sanitary connections
Dedicated gas beam rail with Honeywell Y8210U Retrofit on HLT (to be installed)
Two March 809 Pumps
Bobby_M Sightglasses
5500 ULWD E-HLT
5500 ULWD E-BK

I'll continue to add photos when I make more progress. Sorry for the crappy phone shots...

HLT






HERMS coil

Those big valves mounted to the pumps scare me. I've already busted pumps heads, so I'm moving to the SS ones for the durability. Be careful with those suckers!
