heaters? help me!
- what is the best heater for a still. I am looking to make a spiral
still and need a good, low price heating element. Also is there a
heater out there that will regulator may mash? please give me a web
site or a brand name. Please help me. I need some.
- I'm not sure exactly what your looking for but the element I use is a
typical 120 volt, 1500 watt, water heater element that I bought at a
hardware store for about $7.00 (US). I also control the temperature
of the element with a "Lutron C-1500" dimmer switch that I bought on
ebay for about $25.00. The dimmer switch normally sells for about
$50.00. I cut a hole in the side of my tank close to the bottom and
then welded a 1" pipe coupling into the hole. using the gasket that
came with element I then screwed the element into the coupling. This
setup works very well and has no leaks. hope that helps.
