--- still need to update gas pressure and valve info
I bought a SQ 14 burner only from ASC for the low low price of $9.99! I was hoping to use it as a boil burner but after re-orificing it just didn't have the BTU to cut it. As a fall back position I'm going to use it at my HLT burner.
|Burner||BURNER CAST LOW PRESURE MULTI-HOLE 6" (SQ 14)|
|H20 Volume||10 Gal|
|Air Temp||12 C|
|Starting H2O Temp||15.5 C|
|Target H2O Temp||82 C|
10 Gallons of water is 80 pints which is 80 lb. of water. T delta is +148.1 F in 100 Min is 11848 total BTU. That gives me an effective 7108 BTU/h. While I stopped the test at 80C the water temp did hit 82 a few minutes later but i was busy and don't know exactly when so it is omitted from the data set.
Ideally I would be able to hit 82C with in 1 hour but practically I think that this burner will work. First, I can still get more heat out the the burner by better tuning the air/gas mix & gas pressure. Second, I can run the rig in "Lincoln is impatient mode" by pumping the water into the boil kettle and letting run back down into the HLT, and using the boil burner to heat as well.
