Last one on that page. $19.60. It's exactly the same as the ebay one, except with a different model #... look at the specs. It was shipped from Hong Kong (I'm looking at the box right now.

I bought a bigger one from this vendor too (think it was 25+11 Shipping). As you can see on my avatar pic. They anodized for me for no extra charge because I switched to the "no fan needed" design on the sink. Larger gaps between the fins. Quality product for sure.

Any idea what the model number was for that sink?

only problem here is the 60C/140F max temp on it. I would love to find something like this to remove any need for sight glasses as I transfer from HLT to MT to BK.

let me dig into my ebay account.

I won the HS-0710 but ended up going with the HS-0610 black anodized after contacting the seller (Length 10'' x Width 5.9'' x Height 2.38'').

This looks like a similar one, but the dimensions are a bit smaller on fin height. With two SSRs (2x 5500) at full blast this sink is barely warm to the touch on my set up.

Here is their actual site for specs - confirmed the dimensions on the one that was sent (Length 10'' x Width 5.9'' x Height 2.38'')

According to the data sheet from Proflow Dynamics where I bought mine from the PFT44 has a temperature range of 0-100C.

I just got mine today and it looks like the same material as my march pump. Maybe this weekend Ill test it out a little.

Edit!...Bastards...well sorta. They actually sent me a DigiFlow 8300-TT44 but the good news is it is temperature rated from 0-80C which is 176F.

Well of course you know the question now... which one out there (for cheap) can survive 220F? I would think this is more about the sensor than the plastic tolerance, but I might be wrong.
