If you are looking for motorized ball valves, we are going to do a preorder event and discount them from the regular retail price for you.

Prices:
1/2" 2-Way - $25 plus shipping
1/2" 3-Way - $45 plus shipping
1.5" 2-Way - $87 plus shipping

Shipping will be dependent on volume, and I will give final price before accepting any money.

Valves are stainless, and 12v CR02 wiring. Please respond to this with the number you are interested in.

Adam, who is the vendor for the valves. The reason I ask is I recall Matt mentioning this company: cntonhe.en.made-in-china.com/. There valves look good except the max liquid temp is 90C, which is a bit lower than I would like.

Makes me wonder what the specs were for the older blue ones that we got, because I know I have pumped water over 90C through them.

Good question, for the 3 way and 1.5", that vendor is the one you have linked, and I verified, it is 90C.

The 1/2" 2 ways are a different vendor for a cheaper price, and they are listed @ 100c which will work.

Their price on the 3 ways is higher however.

OK, would like to get in on these ball valves, just not sure what I need. Used the good old fashion manual valves with a very basic system in the past. In my intro, I mentioned that I was interested in a HERMS system....been doing some research, and I might go for RIMS. (Here is a link I found for those wondering what the difference is.) Either way and not trying to create a debate in this area, what type and how many valves would you recommend? I suppose I would order based on the most needy solution so I can go either way. Forgive my ignorance in automation, and thanks for some direction. Bill

I am a proponent of HERMS because its a more gradual temperature change, versus direct contact with an element, but plenty of people make great beer with RIMS systems. The one plus of HERMS on a smaller system (keggle or smaller) is you can use your HLT as the HERMS tank. If you use a gas solenoid with your HLT, then that eliminates the need for a heating element and dealing with higher amp electricity. All depends what your comfortable with building though.

As for valves, I would map out how you want your system plumbing to work on paper and figure out where you want valve control. Anywhere you need proportional control, leave as a standard ball valve. Everywhere else can be a motorized one.

Good Luck!
