Description
 
This is the 7000 WATT version of our very popular integrated RIPPLE element. This wattage is 27% more power than the 5500 version and makes use of every bit of your 30 amp circuit (29.1 amps). This is a great option for use with the Blichmann Brew Commander controller because it uses a separate circuit for the pump so you don't need to reserve any overhead for that.

Please be aware that if you are using a controller designed to run on a 50amp supply, you cannot sub these elements in because when two of these elements are running at the same time, they will pull 58 amps.

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" Long to the TC flange.

Watt density works out at just around 95 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. At 7000 watts, the watt density is getting pretty high for wort boiling but scorching is only a concern if you're brewing a high protein wort where the fine sediments are allowed to settle on the element before energizing it. Pro tip! If you've been collecting wort slowly during a long sparge, give the kettle a brisk stir just before turning the element on!


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.

Note that you should take extra care to ensure good electrical conductivity between the element prongs and the female cord end. Since these are used in often moist environments are are stored in garages and basements, some light oxidation may build up on the prongs over time and it can be hard to see. We recommend occasionally scuffing up the prongs with some 100 grit sandpaper, emory cloth, emory board, etc and wiping the dust off with alcohol about every 4-6 months. Failure to do this may result in an overheat situation at the electrical connection which may cause the cord end to melt in worst case scenarios. This failure is not very common, but like dry firing damage, it is not covered under the 1 year warranty.
