Description
 

No more rusty element bases after two batches! No, we're not the first company to offer these to the homebrewing market, but we are offering the best price by far. This element will make 5500 watts at 240 volts or approximately 1400 watts on 120 volts. The length of the element from the hex flange to the tip is 14.5 inches. At 5500 watts, the watt density is approximately 60 watts per square inch making it an ULWD element. At 120 volts/1400 watts, it's a mere 15 watts per square inch.

If you were looking for the Camco 02962 or 02963 that everyone recommends, this is REALLY what you want. This is basically the same element but with the stainless steel screw base. NO, the camco brand one is NOT stainless but rather nickel plated steel and it WILL rust on you. If you get the Camco instead, you will likely come back here to buy the stainless one later.

This is the lowest watt density element possible that will still fit into a keggle or 15" minimum diameter pot. Due to the zigzag shape, you can wrestle them a little shorter without damage but it's tricky. If your pot is smaller than 15", you may want to go with the 5500 watt straight instead.

The base on this unit stainless steel and will not rust. The threads are standard 1" NPSL like 99% of the elements you'll find out there. Weldless installs such as with our EWL enclosure kits will require a 1.25" hole in your vessel.


Note: the manufacturing process causes some heat discoloration on the stainless and they are not polished or visually stunning in any way. While we typically like our equipment to look shiny as possible, this item is more about durability and function.

MADE IN THE USA.

kettle conversion June 12, 2017
Reviewer: James Olson from Montross, VA United States  
I recently decided to convert my 20 year old kettle to electric and add some goodies, a thermometer and whirlpool arm. Using the supplies purchased here, the conversion went effortlessly and I saved a lot rather than purchasing an already prepared electric kettle. The online instructions were great! Thanks Jimo.
