1600 Watt Stainless Heating Element from William’s Brewing
From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:
This 304 grade stainless heating element is 1600 watts, and is designed for heating mash and strike water. Malt solution will burn onto the element, so this should be used for heating water only. It will heat up to 10 gallons of strike or sparge water to 175° F. in approximately 1½ hours, providing the ambient temperature is 65° F. or warmer. It must be plugged into a suitable thermostat* for use, and should never be plugged into a wall outlet (because it will never turn off). It must be operated submerged in water, and never dry. Ideal for building your own electric strike and sparge water heater.
To give you some idea of the heating power of this wand, we mounted it in a Brewer’s Edge 76 Quart BrewKettle filled with 10 gallons of water at a starting temperature of 67° F. with the wand plugged into a Brewer’s Edge Mash Heat Control. The log is below:
- 10:20AM 67° F.
- 10:34AM 77° F.
- 11:00AM 112° F.
- 11:30AM 143° F.
- 11:59AM 175° F.
It can be mounted weldessly in a 1.25″ diameter hole that you drill with your metal rated holesaw or suitable step drill bit (hole saw not included), and features a silicone sealing washer to seal against leaks.
It must be installed in a stainless steel pot, and should not be used handheld or for another other application than heating water.
The stainless element length is 12″, and the overall length with the cord mount on the back is 16″.
It features a 20″ cord which must be plugged into a heavy duty (15 amp) computer power cord (not included). A good cord to buy for this is the Tripp Lite Heavy Duty Computer Power Cord, 15A, 14AWG (NEMA 5-15P to IEC-320-C13).
*Suitable thermostats include controls that have a capacity of 15 amps or greater.
