I'm curious if the element housing can be purchased separately and adapted for use in keggle/kettles. Are there any plans for this?

Wow I did not understand that... How are a sight glass and a RIMS tube mutually exclusive?

I have a tri-clamp sight glass rims tube. Not a keggle sight glass. So I would have to attach it to your shiny nice tube and have the longest rims tube in il. My current power for my rims is an old extension cord (heavy duty) that has electric tape to cover the connections. The weakest most unsafe part of my set up. A better cover would be nice.

I believe this is what he is talking about.

I really like having it but if I had to do it again I may give it up for a good $ savings.

Looks pricey just to see the wort through a glass.... Sure looks nice though...

I do plan to make the end protection module available separately. I just need to ramp up production on them so that the quantity exceeds the RIMS main unit stock.

BTW, I do plan to make the RIMS units available to purchase this weekend at some point but we've fallen behind on cleaning and packaging the parts.


There was a question on the cord grip size. The cord OD range for these is 1/4" to 1/2". I verified that 1/2" OD is the absolute maximum cord diameter.

Based on some unverified research, that's 16/3 SO** and MAYBE 14/3 SO**. Definitely 16/3, 14/3, and 12/3 SJ*** and maybe 10/3 SJ***. The 10/3 SJ is listed as .58" OD so it's probably too big. The premise for now is that these will be run at 120v but I understand some people want to use them for on demand water heaters and such. The hole in the housing is 7/8" so if you can find a grip that goes up to .6" cord diamters, you're golden.

Wouldn't Kal's control panel just as easily run a RIMs setup as it would a HERMs?

Yes and no. His panel supports two elements with only one running at a time, unless you get the 50 amp panel. Even with the 50 amp panel it only supports 2 elements. With a rims you want to fire it and your hlt at the same time. The panel would need some additions to do this, 3 elements with two firing at the same time.
