Description
 
This is a 1-1/2" Triclover (TC) blank cap that has been meticulously drilled and tapped to NPT female thread to act as a very low profile adapter. (the NPT taper is most narrow on the mating side of the TC flange). Measures 2" diameter actual. 304 SS. We had these made for the thermocouple end of our RIMS tubes, but a secondary use we've come to appreciate is converting a chugger pump to have TC ports without exposing a bunch of threads to the liquid flow. Yes, you will have to use some teflon tape, but it's the best option short of solder or welding. If you do want to solder, this fitting also works well for that.

NOTE: Our current stock of the 1.5" TC x 1/4" NPT version is exactly as pictured in the product thumbnail where it's just a clean through drill and tap.

However, The 1/2" NPT and 3/4" NPT versions of this fitting are not fully tapped through. We intentionally leave a small STOP ledge at the sealing face in order to fully encapsulate the threaded area of the fitting that it is mating to. You can see an example of how it finishes after soldering in the picture below. If you do not plan to solder, the best way to get this to seal is to generously wrap your male threads with heavy duty teflon tape, allowing about 1/8" of it to overhang the ends of the male to make a face sealing gasket.

5 of 5 Just what I needed May 31, 2021
Reviewer: Brandon G from Royal Oak, MI United States  
I used this for an RTD temp probe. The low profile allowed the probe to sit flush with the TC instrument tee. Quality machine work and no leaks!

5 of 5 Worked great! May 13, 2020
Reviewer: Stefan Berggren from Madison, WI United States  
I used these to add TC to my boil and mash kettles.   I used a 1/2" threaded section of stainless, which was soldered into my kettles   Then I used the TC low profile adapters on the threaded stub.  One note - I added a ring of solder into the flange and then screwed it on.  Then I proceeded to heat up the flange and add some flux.  While the solder was just starting to melt, I took some channels locks and tightened the flange.   Let cool and it was a perfect solder.

Reviewer: Lee Bakofsky from Los Angeles, CA United States  
I used this to add a thermometer to the short end of a 1 1/2” TC tee. Worked exactly as intended. Note that it’s not threaded all the way through; there’s a ‘stop.’

5 of 5 Greate quality and idea February 10, 2018
Reviewer: Robert from Buchanan, GA United States  
I have converted three pumps with these. I can't say if it's  better to have the sanitary over threaded but it makes me feel better to know nothings hiding and you can see that everything is clean.
