    I would agree with the points made by Philip. Pneumatic actuated angle seats are the bees knees. I like the 2000 series valves by Burkert myself. However, I have had an actuator spring break on one...

    This is why it is super important to understand chemical compatibility. Stainless Steel (304 or 316 of our usual "food" or "medical" grades), EPDM, & Viton are fine for KOH, NaOH, and PAA at our...

    That is good to know!

    I guess I just assumed it was a bypass and never really considered otherwise. Looking a second time, I do notice the dual liquid connections. I did also read the manual, but...

    I know it is semantics, but you are not heat sterilizing with water unless your water is at 121*C (250*F) and you apply it for a minimum of about 15 mins. You are likely pasteurizing only, which does...

    First, I will echo the sentiments mentioned. Spunding is always my first choice. Uni-tanks are your friend.

    The reversal valve does allow you to clean in both directions. It bypasses the positive displacement pump. You need a separate pump to circulate solution through the system. For pretty much any...

    This - Noritz makes a nice commercial grade unit. If you're above 10hL/bbl then I'd look at the Hot Liquor Back solution Todd mentions.

    First, I would always recommend you contact the HX manufacturer for their best practices recommendation. Generally, it is recommended to run your CIP solution in the reverse direction of normal flow...

    The lactose is where I was headed too, but you do have the potential downside of it being dairy. Just make sure you notify your customers it has lactose if you go that route. It is advantageous in...

    Never had consistency issues with either, and have compared them multiple times, but regardless your issue appears to be as I stated above. Not enough line restriction (tube diameter). You should be...

    This is my suspicion, although most mobile canners I have met carry a Zahm or TapRite to test. Another possibility is not enough line restriction in the filling apparatus. (Filling too fast, causing...

    Itís refreshing to see someone ask a question while at the same time proposing their solution. Finally someone who wants to engage as opposed to being fed an easy answer.

    Are you having issues canning out of the bright at 33*F? - I would think there may be more of an issue with the filling method if that is the case.

    As far as insulation, I have not had to DIY a...

    Circulate your beer. The reality is that your beer next to the tank wall is probably sub 33. That cold beer (or even ice) can act as an insulator and stop further thermal transfer deeper into the...

    I completely understand about the temp dial being small and hard to read for some. It could be larger for ease of use. I was going to call you out as a millennial for needing digital, but I would've...

    In my experience those cheap digitals are way less accurate than the mechanical analog type. I would not trust it myself, but if you are real anal just swap it with a type K TC and plug it in to your...

    This is not really descriptive. It is a size reference, but does not give any context. Perhaps in your situation brass valve bodies with nylon seals are acceptable. I would not use that setup on a...

    This will be the case most of the time. You can source some replacement seals, however if you are not looking for a significant volume, the cost will probably not make sense. If you find some cheap,...

    Most any maltster will be willing to ship you a container volume. Soufflet or EuroMalt would be two options which I believe have production in or near Romania.
