Voltage controller and Digiboil

Gday,

Can I use one of the FSD VC's with the digiboil, or would I need to bypass the electronic display section in the digiboil? I do find the display handy for monitoring during the heatup phase.

The digiboil is only used for the alembic and runs too fast at 1500w. Have not tried the 500w setting yet, but would expect that to be too low.

I did search but didnt find anything regarding the above combination.

Cheers

I have no idea whether you can or not. But a work around given you like to monitor temp in heat up phase is to use the VC after the dig boil has heated up and that way it wound matter if the display does not work :)

I might have misunderstood the question however as I have been enjoying the fruits of my labour lol

I'm having the same issue with a digiboil. I bought one to do spirit run through my pot still. 1500w pumps out the juice and the cuts aren't particular clean. 500w output is so slow that a spirit run could take half the day. I was disappointed by these results as I thought the digiboil would give me better control of still speed. I'm interested in knowing how your purchase goes for your setup, please share your results. Cheers

Gday Garfield, oredered the VC today, should get here in time for the next run, so will post what happens.

Going by what I have read here, 1000w will make a much nicer spirit, at the expense of a bit more time.
