Topic: Behmor Roast Temperatures (4 msgs / 76 lines)
1) From: Justin Marquez
Does anyone have measured temperature profiles from inside the roaster in
operation? I am trying to capture the data myself with a thermocouple. I
took two small diameter pieces of wire and made a couple of loops to hang
the T/C inside the chaff collector about halfway between the collector and
the front of the drum, perhaps an inch below the collector screen.
I have taken data during a P1 and  P2 roast. I don't want to post it if
nobody else is interested.
Another strangeness....
The Behmor is NOT going into the smoke suppression mode at all since I have
implemented the sheet metal bend temp fix from Joe.  It does roast a bit
faster, and makes P2 very viable now for at least 320 grams load. Also, in
P1 it doesn't cycle on and off now, at least not on the 1# P1 setting with a
320 gr load.  P2 does do the 70% power drop by cycling.

As for it not going into smoke suppression mode, it would be in no 
way related to the bend.  I would suggest you contact Behmor.  Either 
a wire has come loose or the element burned out.

I relayed the info to Joe yesterday and he asked me today for a mailing
address to send me new burners. He is very diligent in support of the
roaster.
