I'd be interested to hear how it works. It may be LWD based on surface area, but the coil puts all the heat is a small area, not spread out like a single fold back element. First impression, that would defeat our purpose for using a LWD element.

I like the idea of an element that has mounting nuts instead of a screw in. You could mount it to a TC end cap and have a system with zero threads in contact with wort. Problem is that 2" OD kills it.

Yea that's it, forgot to post that. I was wondering about the coil being to compact in one area.
The one I posted is a bit longer than the one in the link. Must be the new style.
