We get calls every day to create pieces of stainless tubing with certain dimensions, bends and welded fitting configurations. This particular custom build product is for a TC clamp-in style rotating racking arm. They can also be used for pickup tubes or whirlpool returns for TC ported kettles. All 304 grade stainless steel.

The two TC flanges are welded directly to the tube and creates a sanitary joint. The interior of the tubing is Argon flushed during welding to keep the interior sanitary. Note that welds are performed on the surfaces that touch your product, not on the back side of the TC flanges.

Understand the inputs into the drop down menu options (The picture should help understand these)

Tubing OD: We currently offer 1/2" OD and 5/8" OD tubing only. We can do some limited custom work with 1" OD tubing as well, but if you select 1", there is a possibility that we'll have to contact you to describe some extra limitations. Generally we can do 45 and 90 degree bend angles only.

TC flange size We currently offer 1" / 1.5" (both of these standards use a flange that measures approximately 2" across) and 2" TC flanges (which measure approximately 2.5" across).

Leg “A” length is measured from the end to the intersection of legs or midpoint of the bend.
Leg “B” length is measured from the midpoint of the bend to the face of the TC flange.
FF Length” is measured between the faces of the TC flanges. One inch is minimum to allow for the TC clamps.
Bend Angle is measured from “straight” and typically ranges from 45 to 90 degrees for a racking arm. This example in the picture shows an 80 degree bend.

Bend Radius and Leg Length Constraints! Please understand that our ability to make short legs is limited by the fixed bender radii.

1/2" tubing
- This radius is fixed at 1-1/2". You can specify an A leg length as short as 1, but understand that the cut will happen on the curve.

5/8" tubing - Our bender has a 2-3/8" radius. You can specify an A leg length as low as 1, but understand that the cut will happen on the curve.

Tube FINISH: Our stainless steel tubing typically starts with a matte light grey/silver finish. If you would like us to polish the exterior tubing up to the same shine as the TC fittings, select this option as "YES".

Indicator/Handle: We can weld a short piece of SS bar stock to the exterior of the assembly in the same direction as the inner tube bend so that you always know what direction the bent tube is facing. You can avoid needing this by orienting the external valve a certain way and clamping it tightly to the racking arm.


Length tolerance +/- 0.25" Bend Angle tolerance +/- 3 degrees.


We are not responsible for misunderstandings in communicating the specs of this unit. We have made every effort to clearly describe what the inputs are and how they are measured. If you have any questions prior to ordering, please feel free to contact us.

We are NOT interested in supplying your business with large quantities of these. They are hand made in our shop and we do not have the resources for bulk purchasing.

Reviewer: Scott from Evanston, IL United States  
Based upon my measurements, Bobby was able to make a piece that I would swear was designed for my system.  I have several custom welded parts and this piece is by far the best!  Perfect welds, perfect measurements, perfect finish and perfect fit.  Bobby is a master.  Thank you so much!!!
