    try Pack Leader

    We used a small table-top unit to apply roll labels to empty cans at the infeed of our canning machine. Even had a hot printer for date coding. Worked quite well for us.
  2. Parallel

    Putting jackets in series also has disadvantage of raising the system pressure. Parallel offers least resistance and greatest heat transfer, which is what you're after. Efficiency.

    What Unfermentable said.

    Why would you do that? There is no upside. Only downsides. Normal SOP will treat you right.

    splices?

    Not sure if you designed your system with a main line that splits off to different taps? If so, that might be your problem. I will never splice my barrier line. Each line should be independent...
  5. +1 for common reservoir

    I've installed many redundant refrigeration systems. The best way I've found is to use the same size chillers and add to the number when you need expansion. Cheaper to stock spares, too! Pro...

    Yeah. No.

    Used many dozens of these over the years and never had an issue. If they did leak you'd hear the pump chug when taps are closed. Think your pal might have an irrational fear of these. Push with...

    Not where you are!

    I've only purchased these outside the US. The last few times from Rotex. Sure you can find something of equal quality. Beware of dirt cheap crap, however.

    I messed that up!

    Been working in godawful English units lately, so my memory did not serve me correctly. One mole (28g) of nitrogen is 22.4 LITERS. Not SCF! So one pound of nitrogen would be 363 liters. Or 12.9...

    So what's the problem?

    20psi is fairly typical for a regulator set pressure. Wetting + internal pressure + hydrostatic. Assuming your tank internal pressure is about 13psi, a typical 10bbl BBT height is maybe 6 feet...

    Really?

    It's very easy to convert pounds to cubic feet. Ideal gas law: PV=nRT. And remember that 1 mole occupies 22.4 SCF. Or Google! Which tells me that 1 pound of nitrogen is 13.8 SCF.

    Angle seat valves

    Are a bit more complicated, I'll give you that. Besides the main angle valve body, they have a pneumatic solenoid pilot. But the failure rate of a small, pneumatic solenoid using dry, clean plant...

    Angle seat valves

    Pneumatic Angle seat valves with solenoid pilots are bulletproof, inexpensive, and reliable. Wouldn't use anything else.

    Don't do it!

    If you're going to replace solenoids with something more robust, then I suggest air-operated angle seat valves. Good ones are around $100 or so. They are bulletproof and highly reliable. A few...

    Stick with plan A

    That device looks like far more trouble than it's worth. Putting gas on a cold keg for a week would be far superior, IMO. How are you going to "9) serve beer"? Through the stone? That's a...
  15. Something else...

    2 hours mashing is extreme. I use 20% boiled rice and a 20 minute saccharification rest. That is plenty! Attenuation is down to 1.65P for a very dry beer. You do not require gelatinization of...

    You get what you pay for.

    Going cheap is most often not in your long-term best interests. I would not spend my money there unless I was looking over their shoulders 100% of the time. And that's not worth my time; nor what...

    They won't make a custom door....

    Your door is very likely mass produced by a large door manufacturer. Just need to find the distributor for that manufacturer. Don't know who BRD used, but many companies used Zorzini.

    First: single walled brite tank? So basically a cooler-housed serving tank? Most manufacturers do not make their own doors. Doors are usually purchased from other suppliers. Check out companies...

    I'd go for it.

    The boiler may be marginally adequate, but you need to know what pressure the steam is delivered and then the jacket size of the kettle. Can't easily put a low pressure boiler on a jacket made for...

    Produce?

    I mean it's just water and flavor, eh? So mix and done. Not sure I understand what you're after. It's far easier to produce than beer. Brite tank would be a good choice. Obviously you need a...

    3/4 hp is plenty

    Sprayballs don't work better with more power. 3/4 is fine. 2 is gross overkill. There is no real voltage advantage, but 3 phase motors are generally a tad more efficient than single phase. Not...
