Last crazy question for a bit

Anyone have the honor of building a homemade pasteurizer yet?

I got a guy who wants to make one thats about 4'x4'x4' tall and will heat by boiler or on demand up to 170 or so.

I was thinking of doing a 150k btu boiler and wrapping the inside of his tank with 1" coils and feeding the thing with 1-1/2" copper header and see what we can do.

Any other ideas, the guy was suggesting steam.

    The trick is to use a lot of temperature transmitters in different locations to verify it’s heating evenly and the profile meets your requirements. If theres a cold spot, then some
    Product light not be at temperature long enough. You need a bunch of RTDs and a multiple channel data logger.

    The some thing is done on large
    Commercial ovens.
