Due to the integrated PT100 thermo probe, the eKettles are only compatible with Ss Brewtech eControllers
Designing every piece of our electric brewing equipment from scratch has enabled us to introduce a new level of process control, flexibility, and performance. Every detail has been carefully thought through and refined.
Flexibility is realized through the use of our custom-designed element and eKettle element port, which allows for easy removal of the element for cleaning. In addition, we didn't settle for a common, off the shelf straight or ripple element. Instead, we designed a low watt density halo element, specifically sized to the corresponding kettle volume. This design is better suited to distributing heat evenly throughout the kettle, in addition to fostering an effective whirlpool and trub cone formation. Crafted from Incoloy 800 alloy, our element carries a higher resistance to heat and oxidation than standard stainless.
Lastly, performance is deeply important to everything we design. We sized the element and controller in both 10 and 20 gallon sizes to maximize a standard 240 VAC, 30 amp residential circuit. As a result ramp times are quick, which work to shorten the brew day. We also wanted to blend some of our latest product enhancements alongside some of our classic tech. So we decided on a kettle with fully welded TC fittings, alongside our venerable trub dam, which is now paired with a TC ball valve. Even small aesthetic details were not overlooked, such as a front to back handle orientation for a more compact horizontal brewhouse layout. Or integrating a PT100 temperature probe into the heating element base, which alleviates the need for a dedicated thermowell port.
