Brewing beer using an electric stovetop is a great way to increase your level of control during the boiling process. While using an electric stove is great for novice homebrewers, it requires homebrewers to invest in additional equipment especially if they do not have such kind of stove in the first place. Adding an electric heating element directly to the brew kettle is a great idea for home brewers as it saves a lot of the working space as a stove is no longer necessary to heat up the wort.

The heating element is 10" long and provides extreme heat thanks to its 5500W heating capacity. This screw-in heating element provides even heat to the wort, thus producing an even boil in the shortest possible time. Since this heating element will be immersed in the wort, the liquid allows efficient heat transfer for even boiling. It also prevents caramelization and scorching at the bottom of your brew pot. It is made from nickel-chromium stainless steel that allows for extra strength and resistance towards dry firing, which is heating the kettle without water.

It can easily be installed using a 1" nut. The Camco Model 2935 screw-in heating element can fit most types of water heater brands such as Bradford White, American, AO Smith, Kenmore and many others. Since this is a high current and voltage heating element, proper installation should be done to avoid serious injury or electrocution. Camco model 2935.

Please Note: The threading for Camco heating elements are Nominal Pipe Size (NPS).

1 of 5 Poor Thread Machining May Forbid Fit April 4, 2019
Reviewer: Bryan Wood from Port Moody, BC Canada  
I have 4 elements from Camco now, but these last two were really bad. OBK cannot be blamed here, they were great at sending out a replacement. Camco, you must do better QA on your product.

I took them to a machine shop to diagnose the issue. These are 1" NPS threading, but the last two I received were machined using dull lathe tools. The thread valleys were cut too shallow and have a rounded base making it impossible to thread these into a well-made housing. The defective threads can easily be observed with a magnifying glass, light from beneath, and a thread checking tool.

To make things more frustrating, they cannot be re-tapped using hand tools because the socket-end protrudes out and prevents it. Re-threading on the lathe was sketchy because it was very difficult to mount the piece level. After 3 hours they were suitably threaded for use! I'd say this is a risky bet for anyone needing a guaranteed fit to a true 1" NPS. Hopefully, Camco gets it together.
