Let me start by saying thank you to everyone who has posted their projects. I rarely come up with my own great ideas, most of them are crafted from what others have done. So thank you all.
I currently have a single tier rig with 3 BG14 burners. 2 are controlled by Honeywell electronic ignition and one is by a ball valve.
I have been drooling over other peoples control panels and wanted to take my set up to the next level. Here is what the plan is.
- Add a RIMS tube
- Add electronic ignition on BK
- Add control panel w/ 2 PIDs
- Add a second pump for fly sparging
So first off I wanted to find a schematic for the system that fit the bill, which was pretty tricky since my system will be a cross between an electric RIMS system and a gas direct fire system. P-J was kind enough to create a drawing that got me going. Here is the basis of the design.
As you will see when I start showing the actual panel, I changed it up a little as the build started. P-J's schematic really
helped a ton as I haven't done much electrical work since electronics class in high school over 20 years ago.
My skills do not allow me to make changes to P-J's schematic so I will just list them.
- Removed the PID on the BK and just made it a push button
- Added a push button to direct fire the MLT via electonic ignition
- Added a second Pump
- Removed the power button
