Simple fluid-bed roaster attempt: wiring heat element
zamunda
[img][/img]Hello,

This is my first attempt for a small fluid-bed roaster (+-100g).

I have the following:
- Glass tube from an oil-lamp (thrift shop)
- Tea seef ((thrift shop)
- Piece of stainless steel tube (diameter +-8cm, length 2cm)
- Fan from Steinel heat gun
- Heat element from same heat gun (-+ 1500 Watts)
- 18-36V DC with a variable control for fan
- Plugin dimmer for heat-gun (+- 3000Watt).

The fan is quite able of agitating 100 grams of beans, de DC gives a nice control over the agitation.
Now I want to connect the heating element and place it into the stainless tube so the fan blows hot air.
However, can I connect the 220V directly to the heat element? There are 3 wires, have my doubts how to connect these (see pictures)?

Any advice on this?

Thanks and regards,
Bert

The third wire should be the tap for the motor, in original hotgun setup.
Measure with an ohm-meter and find the two wires showing the greatest resistance from the pack.
The expected resistance you should expect to see is in the 35 ohms ballpark. (230V^2 / 1500W)
When you find the desired two wires, insulate the exposed end of the third and let it hang.

Although I am not sure, I guess the brown is "L" power, and depending if you connect grey or black, you get "high" power and "lower" power.
But I am not sure, any experience with this?

Thanks! I'll try that!
