With a little inspiration from Boerderij_Kabouter I started working on a Tri-clover thermowell and here's the result:
This is an inline Tri-Clover thermowell that's only about 2.5" long and has a 3/8" thermowell TIG welded into the liquid stream.
Price is $36.95 and includes 1 clamp and 1 PTFE gasket.
Here's the link to on the site, but it's not in the site nav yet: http://www.brewershardware.com/TCTwell.htm
That thing is sweet! You should also make one with a 1/4" NPT thread in lieu of the thermowell...
Looks fantastic Derrin!!! Way to go. I think Poobah's idea is a good one too. A lot of people like those RTDs from Auber Instruments and they have 1/4" threads I believe.
Great works as always!!!
I will definitely be placing an order for one of these and more tri clover disconnects in the future. I just received my order for 2 tri clovers and they are very well made and they shipped the same day I ordered them.
