Default Loc-Line Brewing Uses?

Does anyone know if Loc-Line will work at brewing temps, mash or boil? Any experiences to relate? I'd like to use it for an adjustable return on my HERMS or for the return on a whirlpool in the kettle.

I use it running off into the kettle right now with no problems. Plan on recirculating with it in the mash tun.

They used one here as a "sparge" arm in "no sparge" system. it's a great system, and I'm using it as plans for mine now.

Been using it as a sparge arm for a couple years...

I just used mine for the first time yesterday. I have one in 2 different lids. I loved having it in the lid. when it came to time to transfer to the BK I just slid the lid from the MT over and opened the valve. Sweet.

The material is acetal copolymer. The material in accordance to the rules in 21CFR 177.2470 meets the requirements for food contact. The rule limits temperatures not to exceed 250 degrees F and it is limited use with alcoholic and fatty foods. I know about this material being a Mechanical Designer. It will work for brewing applications. I am currently implementing the Loc-Line system into my Brutus.

I too use Loc-line with my B10. I use the Circle Flow Nozzle Kit #51837 in my mash tun to circulate to keep the channeling down. I also have another that I use for circulating the water in my HLT and to moving the wort into the boil kettle. Works great!!

What are the benefits of this line vs say a copper recirculation or sparge arm? Is it just the versatility of the flex?

That's exactly why I bought it.
