I have 4 sous vide above heaters that are still slacking on their ability to maintain a consistent temperature and not drop an excess of 30-50 degrees in temp.
Trying to come up with ideas and solutions to solve my issue.
On the mindset that I am going to need to upgrade to a heavy duty heating recirculating bath from polysci but I would like to not have to spend 5k on a device to heat my damn water, let alone keep it hot… but damn… I already have 5 anovas… 4 in use…
I’m questioning whether or not a bigger vat to heat water in would play into what I’m talking about…
Currently, I have a 10gal sports cooler that o have 4 anovas hooked up to.
If I increase the surface area/ volume of liquid being heated up initially would that suffice for the amount of surface area I have needed to be heated up?
I have 3 - 6x36 jacketed spools along with a 12” jacketed pour spout that has water flowing through.
I have yet to see how many GPM the water pump I have can handle but I would say about 8-10gal minute. 5gal at the very least.
Again. If I can change a few variables to further increase my hearing capabilities with my current arsenal of sous vide heaters I would chose that route… but if I need to get a set in stone heating recirculating bath then so be it. I just need more heat!!!
Chime in if you have any ideas or can help me!
Much appreciation in advance.
