Description
 
Electric Kettle Enclosure with 1.5" TC flange, gasket, clamp and Medium Weld Ferrule .

This specific unit features an enclosure with a 1.5" TC (triclover) flange welded. It assumes you want to weld the included 1.5" TC weld ferrule to your vessel. We have other kits with various accessories included elsewhere on this site. Note: we also developed a way to install this weld ferrule into kettles by pulling a flare using our new TC flare tool as shown in the accessories and finishing with silver solder.


General info for all TC (triclover) based electrical enclosures:

The matter of enclosing the electrical connection of your heating element has long been the shortcoming of many Do-It-Yourself element installs. Many solutions relied on "potting" the exposed connections with silicone or epoxy which was a bit more permanent than practical. In addition to shielding the connections, another challenge is providing an earth ground point on the metal pieces. Our design solves both of these problems in an aesthetically pleasing and functionally adequate way. We have several options depending on whether you want to weld, solder or use gaskets to install your heating elements.
What's included with all enclosure options:
  • Screw-together canister with ground screw and cord grip.
  • Electrical Connection Parts: One pair of crimp-on ring terminals to connect your cord (up to 10 gauge wire) to the element, and a single ring terminal to attach an earth ground to the canister, a couple pieces of shrink wrap tubing (shrink it over your crimp terminals with a lighter).
Note!! electric heating element is NOT included with ANY of these kits.

The cord grip included with this kit will accommodate nearly any practical cord diameter from 14/3 SJ to 10/3 SJ cords.

Much better solution for an enclosure. November 5, 2015
Reviewer: Jay Williams from Sparks, NV United States  
I didn't like the junction box style enclosures. I wanted to keep my shiny rig shiny. I also wanted to mount this as low as possible and didn't want to have to worry about unscrewing the element to take it out hence the tri-clamp. When it arrived, I knew I made the right choice. This is going to look amazing and work perfectly.

Very clean enclosure February 12, 2015
Reviewer: john from FL United States  
Very happy this product is offered. Far cleaner than most of the enclosure methods I have seen people use. The terminals it comes with are also very nice. Always best to solder the wire to the terminal.

Tip: (especially if using heavy gauge wire) when connecting the ring terminals to the element, bend them after screwing them in so the wires are centered in the housing, that way the ground bolt does not hit/mar the wire. You have to attach the terminal "upside down" to be able to bend it a full 90 degrees.
