I have been running a 4" dragon for about a year now and would like to invest in a bigger still.
I have Allied Super Hot 500,000 BTU/ Hr closed loop boiler that I would like to use to either be the sole source of heat for the kettle or at the very least assist so I don't need to invest in a steam generator at this point. Or use excessive amounts of electricity as natural gas is much cheaper in my area.
The Boiler can be turned up to 102 C.
I was hoping to buy a Baine Marie Kettle and fill the jacket with propylene glycol.
I was then planning to isolate the rest of the closed loop system from the kettle by using a heat exchanger and a pump to circulate the propylene glycol to exchange with a dedicated closed loop.
