    Default Suspending steamaway pan and stack

    I'm curious to see what others have for pulley setups or hangers for their steamaway and hoods. I have a 3x8 steamaway pan on my 3x12 evaporator and feel like the 1/4" coated cable is a little overkill for the weight of it. Post pictures of what you have please, looking for ideas to make my setup easier. Long term I want to install I-beam with rollers and electric lift to lift then slide the steamaway over for cleaning.

    Simple set up we are using with SS cable and eyebolts and a boat winch.

    JR,
    I have some pictures on here somewhere? Old post. You might try searching. I also use a hand crank boat winch and a rolling frame work to support the steamaway and or the rear pan and hood.

    Humm these aren't very good. There is a frame not shown below the rails. Maybe I can find others?










    Found them Just my 2 cents.
    Regards,
    Chris
