Here is a picture of the ignition module, solenoid shutoff valve, Mass flow contoller, and pilot fuel needle valve http://picasaweb.google.com/kevin.la...flowController
Here are pictures of the pilots and burners in operation http://picasaweb.google.com/kevin.ladue/PilotLights
The Honeywell S87D ignition module uses a flame rod to sense flame presence, if flame goes out module shuts off solenoid in 6 seconds.

That looks like a beautiful set-up, well thought out and built. PLEASE keep us updated on your progress.

Should be able to finish mash tun and go for the wet testing today and possibly a test run with operating software. One item was apparent during burner testing last week, radiant heat from underside of boil kettle burner needs to be sheilded to prevent hot spot on floor. The combustion venting system worked well as there was no noticible combustion smell inside brew shed during boiler and boil kettle testing. This system is kind of like frankenstein, built out of many used parts by a mad scientist and brought to life with electricity. I did not realise how many hours it would take to put this thing together as it is not done yet, I still have to build the glycol cooling system then finish the permanent power, plumbing connections and inside walls of brew shed.

I am retired and was a tool and diemaker for 30 years and worked with engineers every day to build new automated machines for a production line and to modify and maintain the existing ones so I know you must be retired if you are living in Oregon but still needed a project so you could create something of your own. From the experiences I had I can see that you have many challenges ahead and will have to deal with each one of them as they surface. It's a lot of work to do and can and does cost a fortune. Please do not get discouraged as I know this can happen but just keep at it. I also know it takes a lot of time but the self satisfaction will come.

Wish I was retired but that is about 7 years away, at least it is only 40 hour weeks these days and commuting distance from home, down side is trying to run 3 high tech I&C installation projects in hillsboro Or, and a 450 Mw turbine generator instrument install in springerville AZ.

I was jealous, but now that you have to come to AZ during monsoon season I feel for you. Every time I step outside a new plan springs to mind for cooling wort below 85*. Oh, I really like that grain elevator. Are you using an electric actuator motor to turn it? couldn't really tell in the picture.
