Honestly didn't look hard enough to find one in all reality.Looks good! Though I'm not crazy about the 2 SSRs for power to the element. Why didn't you get a DPDT SSR instead?
I didn't realize the cost of them. Used them. But never bought one. Ouch! Perhaps your set up is a better go around.Honestly didn't look hard enough to find one in all reality.
Do have a link to one are referring to? I can always make things better.
The only advantage I can think of to my set up is heat dissipation for the SSRs.
More than likely why I didn't come across those! LolI didn't realize the cost of them. Used them. But never bought one. Ouch! Perhaps your set up is a better go around.
Great solution!Hi! Little update.
Used a few times... Starting to get a feel for the flaws in the design.
Biggest one being heat loss from the single wall sheet metal. I had did a run at higher temps and with a breeze, the temps wouldn't stabilize.
This and I had also processed
I had assumed out of the gate that this was probably going to be a problem....
So to insulated, I didn't want to go the cheapest route, which is a fire blanket, but I also didn't want to spend $1200+ for a custom, industrial blanket.
Find aluminum backed, ceramic insulation, add foil tape to the unfinished side, and make my own custom blanket.
Finally have a chance to start on it today... Getting the larger foil tape on the unfinished side is going well so far.
Also will be finishing the edges also, and possibly etching the foil tape and painting the outside black.
The cost savinging and custom fit is what I'm ultimately looking for. View attachment 515058 View attachment 515059 View attachment 515060 View attachment 515061
|I love the detail with the ceramic blanket. I used fire blankets for the same reason and like my results though not as nice of an appearance!|
