Description
 
The 1-1/2" Triclover (TC) weldless bulkhead flange allows you to add a TC port to any tank or kettle with absolutely no welding or soldering. Just drill a hole and tighten the locknut. Done!
The flange measures 2" like all other 1.5" TC ferrules, and the overall length is just under 1". The ID is 1-3/8 just like standard 1.5" weld ferrules. The short length of this ferrule makes it possible to use ripple style heating elements and not have the foldback make contact with the ferrule. These are extremely high quality pieces machined out of 304SS and polished to perfection (except for the locknut which is cast finish 304SS. Let's repeat this since we get the question constantly. YES! Ripple style elements fit into these with NO PROBLEM at all when using the ETC3 Hot Pods as the element housing/adapter.

The silicone O-ring is included and gets captured in a groove like our other True Bulkheads.

This is the STD length version which has enough thread length for wall thickness of up to 1/8" (or 3/16" as long as the install surface is completely flat like a lid). We also have an XL version that can accommodate wall thickness of up to 1/2".

Installation Notes:
  • Hole Size Required - 1-5/8" or 41mm. Note that the most pleasant tool to use for this is a knockout punch set. Since they are extremely cost prohibitive, the next best option is our tungsten carbide hose saw (40mm). After deburring the 40mm hole, the result is a clean 41mm hole. See the accessories column on the right for the bit.
  • The oring contact is on the flange side of the fitting so make sure there are no burrs on that side of the hole.
  • The lock nut hex measures 2-1/16" or 52mm. Turning it with an adjustable wrench does NOT work well. You'll need a socket or a box wrench. Since these tools are very rare, we offer a socket as an accessory. It requires a 1/2" drive ratchet.
  • The front of the flange does not have flats for a wrench. The easiest way to hold the front of the flange for tightening is to clamp any other TC part on with the gasket and clamp (a blank cap works great). Once tight, you can insert a long rod or screw driver into the hole of the wingnut.

We've tested this on a pot measuring as small as 12" in diameter. Anything smaller may work but we don't know for sure. Larger diameters or flat areas are no issue at all.

5 of 5 Nice product September 26, 2023
Reviewer: Ed Carlson from Monument, CO United States  
Great way to add ports to my brew kettle; seals well if you follow the video instructions! I advise you get the drill bit (and socket) to go with this as it would have a chore to make a clean, proper sized hole without it. I used a hammer drill, which has a second handle so I had no problems with the bit jamming as it cut through.

5 of 5 Very Easy to Install October 18, 2021
Reviewer: Marshall Guerin from Westerville, OH United States  
If you need to install a bulkhead for a tri clamp this is the way to go.  Make sure you get the recommended hole saw and the piece to tighten it down.  Cut through the steal easily and after that was easy to install, does its job works perfectly and provides a clean watertight  tri clamp port
