BrewBuilt™ SlingBlade Electric Heating Element – 31 gallon
The BrewBuilt SlingBlade’s unique crescent-shaped design promotes a rolling boil and even heat distribution. This electric heating element places all of the heating power on one side of the kettle, sending thermal energy upward to the surface that then cascades downward on the opposite side of the kettle. This movement creates a natural turbulence that evenly distributes heat while creating a vigorous boil. By being located on one side of the kettle, the other side is clear for immersion chillers, and the curved shape won’t obstruct the flow of wort during whirlpool. Thanks to the non-circular design, the SlingBlade can easily be installed on any kettle with a 1.5″ tri-clamp ferrule. This also makes removing the element for cleaning between uses a breeze.
The SlingBlade heating elements were designed to fit perfectly with BrewBuilt brewing kettles, but you may find them suitable for other kettles as well. They should be used with T.C. ferrules no longer than 1″ in length. For dimensions and recommended minimum kettle diameter, please see the chart below.
