Is this suitable as a 30 litre homebrew boiler ?
- will it allow full 90 minute rolling boils
- can the thermostat be overridden
- can a hop strainer be fitted
- is tap suitable
This catering urn can only be used for boiling water.
Is the urn thermostat accurate enough to control the temperature to use as a sous vide. What is the range of the thermostat. Thanks
This unit is not suitable to be used as a Sous-vide.
can i use this to heat milk? if not, what would be suitable? needs to be at least 30 litres
The Manufacturer does not recommend this for milk as the tap cannot be detached and cleaned.
can this boiler be used to boil small white clothing items. We have a burco boiler which has given us over fifty years service but has now started to leak
These units cannot be used for this process.
How does the boil dry mechanism work,
Also does it have a reset buton when the above happens & where if is this button.
Best wishes Kieran
The boil dry mechanism will automatically switch off the urn if the water runs out, or if the unit is switched on without any water in it. This will protect the urn from damage. The reset button is on the underneath side of the base of the urn.
Hello, what is the temperature range of the thermostat?
The temperature range is approximately 37 degrees Celsius to 99 degrees Celsius.
Is the body construction actually stainless steel or is this plated or polished other metal?
The body construction is made of a durable stainless steel.
What is the weight of this unit, when empty?
The weight is approximately 4.4kg.
How many cups will the boiler deliver before refill is needed?
What is the heat up time from cold / normal water?
Finally can it be topped up with boiling water from a kettle?
This will deliver around 120 x 250ml cups before refill is needed. The heat up time is approximately 70 minutes from cold. There is no reason why you cannot use water from a boiled kettle to top up, but we advise with caution. Transferring boiling water from one source to another can be dangerous, so to avoid scolding, we would recommend to use cold water.
Should the boiler be left empty over night or on days when it is not being used?
Is there a recommended length of time that you can leave it on for?
We would advise you to turn the urn off overnight if the premises are unoccupied. If unused for a long period of time, we would advise you to empty the urn and unplug. If the urn is to be used constantly, it can be kept on continually.
I can't find any detail about the power source and need something that is truly portable. Does the urn plug in via a normal electrical plug and if so is the lead supplied?
Yes, this electric urn comes supplied with a cable and a standard UK three pin plug.
In a indoor environment with 20°C, how long does it take to bring 30 liters of water to the boiling point?
The heat up time is approximately 70 minutes.
We want the urn to be kept hot for many hours. Is it safe to put an insulating jacket round it?
If the urn is connected to the mains electricity it will stay hot all the time. We would not advise you to put an insulating jacket around it.
Will the tap stay down without being held for a continual flow of hot water?
The tap can be locked for continual flow, by turning the tap lever, to line up the open padlock symbol with the white dot at the front of the tap body. However, the continual flow will cut off after a certain time, and will not flow to totally drain the urn.
Ask a question?
I’m looking to pick up an Urn for my mobile catering unit.
I understand it uses 2.5kWz. Is this it’s constant consumption or does it drop after the initial boil?
The urn will not use the full 2.5Kw all the time. It will be considerably lower on the \"keep warm\" mode. Energy consumption per hour is 1Kw.
