  • I've been waiting since you first talked about it on HD for the new element guard to come out. Going to modify my old keg boiler for it as I don't want to even consider it on my 26 gallon milk can.

  • Wonder if this could be used inside of the drain of a fermentation tank to "filter" out the solids?

  • Is the mesh open enough to ensure that the liquid does not evaporate faster than it can "fill".

    Not sure If I am wording that right, basically, this won't create an environment where the element could dry fire?

  • The holes are 1mm

    That would depend on how much power you put in and the amount and type particulates in the wash. Even without a screen you could get the liquid to hold of the element if it were hot enough. Like water bouncing on a hot fry pan.

    I'm sure it works great in specific situations.

  • Not going to work with flour/slurry
