J,
Where did/will you put the third probe, in the BK? Is that to just monitor the chill? I was planing just one in the HLT and one for the exit of the MLT and I'd use the dial thermonitor that came on the BK..?

Yeah the third is just to monitor the chilling and how close to boil you are. If you already have an analog one installed that would be fine. The probe was cheaper than a thermometer otherwise I probably would have used an analog as well.

Cool, just checking I ordered 3, one's for you.
I'll need to look around for the SSR, that seller is out for Chinese New Years (like 1/2 of the people that work for me).

Isn't the new year celebrarion only 1 week? Shouldn't they be back open this coming week? Do you need one or 2 ssrs? I have the stock aluminum heat sink that it came with, and I have 1 of the copper pc ones. So you probably don't need to order a heat sink. Auber also sells ssrs and they aren't too expensive ($19)considering they are in the USA. I haven't heard of any defectives ones coming from them. I got my contactors from auber I think they were only $15 each.If you are ordering a pid or contactors from them you might as well get the 40a ssr too.

The actual new years is just like ours, 1 day. The celebration, and the "hey, I'm not working" time, can be two weeks or more. The whole thing is actually 15 days, but just like July 4th is only 1 day but we often take the week off, you'll find that the whole month can be a bust for certain folks in China.

I just checked with Bobby. You would have to use this sight kit and order it without the thermometer.

Thanks for checking that out!

Any downside to using this instead of one from Auberins?

The Watlow RTD's from Red-Tag Liquidators on Ebay have four wires. The two that I bought just before Christmas did, anyway. The Auber Instruments PID (2352) has only three contacts for the RTD input. Not a problem. Just connect only one of the white wires from the RTD. Don't connect both white wires to the same terminal.

A reliable source tells me that Omega makes good RTD's. He used them in the R&D lab at Wolf Appliance. The Omega web site has a lot of info about RTD's in general.

I got the opposite info. I connected both white wires together. It works fine that way and was what was recommended here on hbt. Works fine that way. Maybe it works fine both ways? There wasn't any difference I could notice either way.
