Description
 
This is a 1-1/2" Triclover (TC) blank cap that has been professionally 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. For this use, we recommend getting the optional NPS locknut so that you can lock the TC adapter with its face nice and flush to the open end of the pump inlet casting. 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. See the picture below. On the right, you'll see the adapter threaded flush with a locknut backing it up for a secure fit. You'll need teflon tape in that configuration. On the left, you'll see the same fitting where the gap was filled in with Harris StayBrite solder and then polished smooth. This item available in either 1/2" or 3/4" NPS threads. The latter size is appropriate for the inlet of a Center Inlet Chugger while the 1/2" is the choice for the inlet of a Chugger Inline pump.

Note: due to the variability of machining of NPT threads on both male and female parts, there is no way to ensure that these low profile flanges will have the threads mesh at the same time the flange is flush with the end of the male threads.

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.

Neat adapter July 31, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Göteborg, Västra Götaland Sweden  
Used them to convert the threaded connections on my chugger pump to tri clover. I TIG welded them with 309 filler, ground flush and polished. Good thread quality and finish without scratches or dents.

I had searched for this kind of product for a while but the only alternative I found was a complete pumphead replacement with tri clover ports and that was a bit pricy.

Perfect piece for the job February 16, 2017
Reviewer: Brandt Winkelman from Bozeman, MT United States  
I used two of these on my chugger pump head and TIG welded them on from the face where the threaded male ends come through the tapped adapter.  great way to make a tri clamp pump head that has no threads exposed to liquid or anything to capture gunk and need taken apart and cleaned. Did the same on the male side of a welded on pull through bulkhead on a keggle to make a TC port for hoses on the outside, and use the threaded female port inside the kettle for a whirlpool arm.

Great Solution and Great Service June 25, 2016
Reviewer: Wayne Nicholas from Auckland, New Zealand  
I recently purchased the 1/2" 1.5 TC Tapped Female NPT Low Profile Adapters for my March/Chugger stainless pump headend to complete my all triclover Brutus 10. The service was quick and accurate and it is great to be able to buy items from an organisation that understands advanced home brewer requirements. Using the Starbrite solder as per the product prescription made for an easy and perfect solution to compliment the pumps. Thanks a lot guys. Will certainly be back.
