Three-piece Ball Valve Stainless 1/2"
3 piece ball valves are easy to take apart and clean. These valves are 316 stainless steel, full port with 1/2"NPT threads. The seals are made of Teflon to resist high temperatures. Comes with a locking handle to prevent accidental opening.From Blichmann Engineering
Great valve. Caution when pairing with bulkheads from this site though. The bulkhead has a slightly different pitch, and you will only bite about 3 threads. Will still seal with Teflon though. Fitted this valve to other 1/2” NPT fittings I have and got a full capture.
the valve itself seems fine and i'm happy with it although i didn't go with the set up i planned, as the pump i got sucks up too much sediment, so i went back to siphoning.
Excellent upgrade to your brew kettle, makes transferring wort to carboy so much easier. Heavy duty, as expected from Blichmann.
The 3 piece valves look sturdy,easy to clean for sanitation purposes and soon will be put to use.
I bought this to replace a standard ball lock on a bayou kekettle. It doesn't work. The threads ate different even though it says 1/2". Don't waste your money.
