Pros & Cons.
Life is full of Swings & Roundabouts, and the cost of a Stainless Steel Vat Thermostat is an unfortunate downside, at the same cost as a single phase heater! An immersion heater, fitted thru the side of the vessel, comes with a stat pocket. Thus a bargain £30 stat can be added. Albeit a somewhat “Agricultural” one, with a variance of circa +/-7°c. This suits most customers, but if half a degree accuracy is required, a PID Controller will have to be fitted. The upside to the Over the Side, Vat Heater arrangement is that the tank or vessel does not need to be drained in order to switch out a dead heater or controller. They can be simply dragged Over the Side! Also, vat heaters and controllers can be moved from one vessel to another, increasing flexibility.
