Hi Rich ( Good name for a gold miner)
We build our own, if ya can't weld then a engineering shop could make one up. Or buy a stock model of Keene. If you want some plans give me an e mail. Whatever you do, make sure you put a premix chamber between you and the heat exchanger. If you get a block in the water intake for the exchanger you wont get a burst of steam or boiling water coming down the line at you. Simple way to make one is piece of 5" pipe plastic or stainless, put a cap on both ends. Drill two holes, one for inlet, one for outlet. Attach a hose tailpiece to each hole. Glue or weld. On the outlet side attach a piece of pipe or plastic tube that almost reachs bottom of pipe.(Inside). Then glue or weld together. That way you know you have a blockage when the water starts to get warmer, gives you plenty of warning, to clear the intake. Heaps of dredgers here were geting bad scalds until we put these on. Oh yeh whole unit should be about eight inches long.
