    need to replace Burned up heating elements

    Our brewery uses electric heating element for the hot liquor tank.

    We've burned up two of the Mcmaster Carr stainless steel units...about $280 / each. I don't know if it's salts, acids or what that's causing the corrosion and ultimate failure of these elements, but I would like to get a recommendation on a similar unit.

    we sometimes put lactic acid, calcium chloride and / or calcium sulfate in the HLT depending on the brew.

    Our wiring is 3 phase, 240V, i believe max amperage of 25V.

    thanks for any input.
