modding heatplate possible?
    #3592944 - 01/07/05 10:45 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

hey!

so i got this huge ass 2000watt heatplate that has got a switch on it with 4 settings.

it says 0 - 1 - 2 - 3

obviously 0 means off, turning the know to 1 gets the pressure cooker
to 15psi, turning it to 2 boosts it up to nearly 30 psi.

i was wondering if it is possible to somehow modify such a plate,
that the setting 2 wouldnt heat it up THAT much but just as much to reach
20psi for example.

is modding a heatplate this way possible or not?
oh btw, the plate is like 20 years old.
peace ohm :mushroom2:

Put a thin peace of metal(steel wire) between the plate and the pot, so the pot does not lay evenly on the plate. Adjust the gap so you get the desired heating effect.
Why are you not pleased with 15 psi?

due to the fact that i am not sure if the setting nr 1 does really give me 15 psi.

i tried to operate the unit for an hour at setting 1 prior to releasing the steam
and measuring its temperature (the steam release valve has got a thermometer built in)
and the temp reached a max of 115-117C.

due to this fact i have always put the plate on setting 3 (max power)
for 20 seconds on a 15 minute interval,
which kept the pressure around 20psi.

anyway my point is, i guess that settin nr1 does not supply me with the
sufficiant heat required for sterilisation but i never tried sterilizing
jars at setting 1 alone.

also, since it is possible, id like to sterilize them at 20psi.
peace ohm :mushroom2:

*edit*
concerning ur suggestion of placing a piece of wire between the plate
and the cooker, i really dislike the idea of wasting that much energy
setting 2 produces.
i state again that setting 1 gives about 15psi whereas setting 2 around 30 and more.
