Ya gotta give 'em credit for responding so fast to a customer note. They gotta know we are more a religion than a customer base. I can't tell you how many hot sauces I've tried and I always drift back to my rooster sauce.

I know mustard and wasabi lose heat potency over time, the chemical that makes them hot oxidizes or something. Not sure about capsaicin in peppers.\

**********

IN OTHER NEWS:

While Liam et. al. finish calibrating the hotness of their Sriracha sauce, DK has been pondering (...and mebbe a leetle more...) the four sliding layers of her drawer slides.

You can see the inner "rail" layer.
Then the layer with the ball bearings.
Then the outer "rail" layer.
Then the outer casing/mount.

All three inner layers slide out of the outer casing, sequentially.

Ponder on this, peeps:

OK, so. We interrupt the drawer slide thing to go back to the syrup discussion.

And how sales literature LIES.

The blue thing in the picture is called a proportional injector. Tap water comes in from the left (1) and enters the "mixing chamber" of the blue body. As tap water flows in, it turns some magical geared machinery that runs an injection piston, which causes injection concentrate from a vat to be sucked up and injected into the inflowing tap water (2). The amount of injection is proportional to the amount of tap water flow.

And then, it's SUPPOSED to get thoroughly mixed together in the blue body and exit the injector homogeneous (3) and go on to feed perfectly even solution to both (4) and (5) as it travels along its merry way.

But.

The LIES, oh the LIES.

What was actually happening was that proportional injection was taking place but MIXING WAS NOT, so what was exiting the injector was a thick syrupy stream of concentrate that traveled along the BOTTOM of the exit pipe, and fell into the first hole (4). So measuring the outputs, DK found a too high concentration coming from her flush line (4) and a basically non-injected stream emerging from her tank feed (5).

She hadda get out of the box to realize that the TDS meter was NOT LYING but that the injector literature was.

She then ran to Lowes, got hersef more of the fancy red syringe things (a couple to spare for future projects as this product Lowes is selling out of and not going to actively carry any longer...), did a surgical extraction via needlenose of the critical magical red spirally thing, and inserted it inline into the exit stream.

Now, when the syrup and water exit the injector, they are forced by turbulent flow mixing to ACTUALLY mix, and what (4) sees is identical to what (5) sees, according to her handy-dandy-trusty TDS meter and crude drop tests.

Just another day in the Shrimporium, tuning thangs...

P.S., so you might ask, hasn't this problem been happening all along, so there has been no mixing to the tank feed all along?

Well, the answer is if I had been running the WF with BOTH the flush line (4) and the tank feed lines (5) open all the time, yes, this would have caused a BIG problem.

But, the normal operation of the WFIII is to only open the flush line when I'm doing a change to the global system and need to draw a side sample for testing. When the flush line was not open, the laminar flow must have eventually mixed the syrup into the line down toward the tanks, and they would be fine.

But now, I can take accurate samples from my flush line and know this is what the tank feed will also be getting, not something different!

How did you attach it inside? Seems like it would fly down the pipe, or is that 1/2 inch pvc and you could just cement it in?

I use magical mixers like that at work for injecting 2 part silicone. They're not quite that large though. What would need a mixing tip that huge if you don't mind me asking? (the intended use, not the dk use)

Well, there is a whole other story to your question, actually.

First, it's half inch SCH40 line.

Second, the product (ACTUAL USE) is this. (pic below) It's manly stuff, used to anchor rebar into concrete and other he-man construction type extra-heavy duty uses. DK is attracted to such.

Third,

um... it actually did fly down the line, and DK tested this by trying to close that-there valve you see on the right with the black lever, and it din't wanna close, so she knew she had migration issues.

BUT.

Yes. But.

DK is anal, at times. You will see that just proximal to that valve is a half inch plug, sideways. This plug covers an access port for a someday second CIC-152 TDS probe to monitor and control this stream. So what DK did was to open up that plug, scoot back that red thing toward the injector, and then cut a piece of yonder toilet feed pipe to fit inside the plug and go across the pipe pathway, blocking the migration of the red spiral. The toilet pipe is small enough to allow enough flow around it, still.

I would not cement it in, because that would break one of DK's executive rules: Make it reversible, if possible, and re-configurable.

OK, C. Farbeit from me to get into ennywons bizness. Unless it's Shrimptern 1.0's, which I did get into.

But, here I go again.

Ya need to take this here graphic of my Moose, and make it your avatar.

Right click on the image and save it to your computer, then click on "User CP" and under the options choose "edit avatar" use this graphic as yer avatar.

That way, with EVERY ONE of your posts, I get to see Moose in all his doggled glory. I mean, what could be better...

May The Force be with you.
