I posted this elsewhere and thought it would be better here, so it might not hijack another thread.
I have been reading for days about going electric and am seriously considering a major build. My question is are all of these elements meant to be submersed in liquid or are there elements that you can use dry? The reason I ask is I think I have a different way of using an element (dry) than anything I have seen so far, and what comes to mind is the old electric stove top or oven elements. They seem to work fine dry for hours on end, could this be done with the hot water style or would they just burn themselves up, or do they make a hot water style that can be used dry? Someone posted the link below but it does not say if this element can be used dry? I have attached a chicken scratch drawing of what I am thinking of trying in hopes it helps out. If this is a complete noob question I apologize as going electric is completely new to me, been a gas man for the last 20 years!
Thanks in advance...
