Description
 
These elements are pretty slick. The traditional way to get an element into a TC port is to use an adapter such as our Hot Pod ETC which then had to be hardwired to a cord. These Ripple TC elements don't have screw in bases but are welded right to a 1.5" TC flange. Not only that, but the electrical connection is made by integrated NEMA L6-30P blades. You can twist an L6-30R cord end right on. This gives you the ability to disconnect at the pot rather than drag the cord around.

You will need a 1.5" TC port on your kettle and we offer several different ways to get that done; weld ferrule, solder ferrule, and weldless. These are available separately. The L6 cable is also available as a separate item. Again, this element does not include a gasket, clamp or TC port for your kettle. They are available separately.

Element length is approximately 14.5" Long to the TC flange. Please note that the length does vary across different production runs so if your kettle is going to be a tight fit, call ahead and we'll measure our current stock for you. We are not responsible for return shipping costs if you find that it doesn't fit.

Watt density works out at just around 75 Watts per Square Inch. We are often asked about LWD vs ULWD and we're yet to find any technical documentation that defines exactly what this means and what technical governing body decided what the WPI has to be for specific names. What we can tell you is that these elements do not scorch wort. It's the lowest watt density you can get for a 5500 watt element that also fits into kettles as small as 13-14" with a large TC ferrule welded in.


Everything is 304 High polish stainless steel.


It is extremely important that you consult with an electrical professional for advice or wiring help. Under no circumstances should these be used without proper wiring, ground fault circuit protection, over current circuit protection. We are not licensed electricians so we cannot provide wiring advice.




After years of experience with these elements, we have concluded that the connectivity between the L6-30 prongs and the mating female receptacle is a common point of failure as oxidation from humid environments begins to degrade conductivity. The best long term solution we've come up with is the use of a light coating of a product called Conductive Assembly Paste. It is expensive and not usually available in tiny packages but we've done the repackaging locally. We now include a 1mL syringe of this paste with the purchase of this style of element. Note that we only include a single 1mL tube for up to 3 elements purchased.

5 of 5 Works great December 5, 2021
Reviewer: Kevin Fidler from Akron, OH United States  
Just did my first brew the other day with the electric heating elements after converting my kettles to electric, heats the water faster then propane ever did.
Also Bobby was very helpful, I called a few times with questions and he's the person who answered the phone.
Here's a video I did with the heating elements
