I'm configuring my 5'' Dash column next week. It's heated with 3 x 5500W elements. I have 3 PID controllers (Elitech STC1000) that were used in a brewing process before that I'm going to use to control the heating elements. Is this a better option than controlling two manually and using the DIY Controller on the third element?
In terms of the reflux condenser I would like to add some automation to it. I have attached the diagram of the process flow. I would be very grateful for any feedback. Essentially I'm recirculating water from a 1300 litre buffer tank for both the reflux condenser and and product condenser. The product condenser will be always open. The reflux condenser water flow will be controlled by a PID controller, PT100 thermocouple and a solenoid valve on the water out hose from the reflux condenser.
