Element position

Postby Nathan02 » Thu Oct 05, 2017 7:03 am

Hey guys,

Have one of macs 2400 weldless elements i want to install into a 50l beer keg. Just curious where the optimum height in the keg would be for installation. Cheers!

As low as possible so you can run small washes without having the element get exposed.

We put ours around the back so we can work on the front without tripping over wires and protruding elements ...
