Camco Screw In ULWD LimeLife Heating Element - Ripple Foldback (5500W, 240V) [2965 Model]
Camco 5500W heater ripple element (ULWD)
Alternative Views:

Most commercial breweries boil their wort using electricity. Using an electric stovetop allows brewers to control the amount of heat that they are going to use to boil the wort. Brewing beer using electricity is a great way for homebrewers to control the boiling process. Achieving a correct boil prevents the caramelization of the wort which can eventually lead to scorching at the bottom of the pan.

While using an electric stovetop is a conventional way for homebrewers to heat their wort, others prefer to use heating elements. The Camco model 2965 screw-in heating element is an ultra-low watt density heating element. This means that the heat it produces per square inch along the element is very low which promotes even boiling of the wort over a long period of time, minus burning of the natural sugar from the wort.

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

Reviewer: Bradley from Edmonton  
It can get 20G into an aggressive boil with no troubles. I run it at about 60%.

5 of 5 Extremely Powerful March 18, 2018
Reviewer: Marc-Andre from Saint-Eustache  
5500W for a 5 gal batch is quite overkill! But considering the price difference between 5.5k and 4k, might as well get this one :) I usually power it at 50-60% of its capacity and get a powerful boil, evaporation rate of about 1gal/h. They're a bit hard to clean, so make sure you have some PBW and let it soak overnight after brewday

5 of 5 Damn powerful! February 27, 2018
Reviewer: Jonathan from Gatineau, QC  
I use this to boil my wort and heat my strike water, in 16Gal pots.
I brew 5.3 Gal batched and DAMN these are powerful! The boil is almost too much when kept at 100%. I recommend using a controller to get the perfect boil.
