Default What heating element

I am building my "pipe bomb heater" and I am curious what elements you are using. On my dieselcraft set up I used a 220v element and ran it on 110v. Should I do the same on the gravity centrifuge.

Yes, 220v element wired to 110v. The "lime life" elements can be dry fired without harm unlike standard elements that could catch fire. Did you order a PID and thermocouple yet?

Today I am buying the pid and parts similar to yours. As far as the element, Im going to buy a 220v 4500w element. That's what my last setup had, but I wasn't sure if a gravity setup is different.

Anii23 If you need a 1 inch NPTS tap to build anything for your heater I have one to loan you. That is a pipe tap with straight threads for water heater elements. Had to order it from McMaster Carr a few years ago when I built a few heaters. Dave
