Hey All! I am Redline Tuner (Economist BA, Blackmith, Refractory Specialist, & Foundry Sys, Producer/Opp.) Method change on this build: using Controller and SSR elecs with K-A1.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey, so like the huge title says i have a BA in Economics, i am a part time blacksmith/metal castor, I am a refractory specialist with multiple original refractory materials to my name, and i also produce full foundry furnace set-ups building all the equipment pieces mostly by hand.

 

I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

 

** So on this build I'm taking a new approach a bit outside my comfort zone in the realm of thermal project. Propane and acetylene have been my GO-2's for too long so this time I'm constructing a digital temperature controller connecting to a solid state relay and connecting off of the SSR will be my heat producer: My home made element wound on a #8 arbor and constructed from Kanthal A1 Resistance wire with a 1.02mm Diameter a.k.a. 18 AWG.

 

Suggestion on the thermal-electric application project are absolutely welcome. (like can i have a switch to fully cut current downward from ssr without a mercury relay, not a fan of the moving parts)

 

And feel free to ask me anything pertaining to my specialties and I'll do my best to provide u with answers, solutions, or whatever.

Welcome to the group!

I've got a temp controller for my reef tank that controls the heaters.  A temperature probe switches the heater outlets on and off to maintain the pre-set temp.  Not sure if this is what your looking for, your post is way above my pay grade.  :77:
