After working the Graveyard shift all night with nothing better to do but look at HBT, I have done a lot more reading and research. My plan is to have a 50a breaker installed into my circuit breaker box and running wire to the 50a GFCI spa panel(seems cheaper than buying a GFCI breaker but GE won't fit into my box). From there I would connect to a 25a breaker then to the ssr, 240v-40a 120v coil, and PID with a 5500w element in a keggle. I would have 1 switch for the pid and 1 for the BK. I would use the SYL-2352 pid. I would heat everything in the BK and manually transfer to the HLT and MLT as needed. My goal is to eventually upgrade to a 3 vessel single tier E-HERMS with 2 pumps and a 5500w element in the HLT and a 4500w in the BK along with another pid controller, appropriate switches etc.
Does this seem doable? Am I at least on the right path? This is not something I am starting tomorrow but I am going to try and get it built before the end of winter and want to start collecting materials.
Sounds like a plan, I am looking for a control panel box now to hold everything then get building....I will give you a call when I am ready to plunge in...I just got a great deal on some Green Lee Punches for the holes for the buttons on ebay that will be here soon, can use them when you are ready too. Happy New Years....about to go pour a pint of Extra Pale Ale and start the new year party all the best talk to you next year!
