Due to many customer requests, we have hand matched all the electric home distillery parts for this DIY heat controller kit together so that you don’t have to! The DIY heating element is based around a 40 Amp Solid State Relay so that it can withstand the 30-amp current of a typical household 240V source at higher temperatures.
As with a lot of the individual heat controller parts, we do a large portion of the pre-assembly so that you do not need to go out and buy specialized tools and supplies to assemble this electric heater controller. We have pre-fastened the SSR to the heatsink with thermal paste and we have cut wires and soldered them to the controlling potentiometer so that all you need to do is screw the wire ends to the control terminals of the SSR. The only things you will need to do to assemble this DIY heat controller is to cut out an opening for the ammeter and holes for the cable glands, strip some wire, and wire everything together (with screw terminals, no soldering required). Check out this helpful DIY Heat Controller video for directions on how to assemble the electric home distillery kit.
