So, am I correct in assuming this will allow me to add a thermometer to my HLT, Mashtun or Kettle? Do I install this and it allows me to put any thermometer probe through it into the HLT, Kettle, etc? Does it have some sort of material stppeor in it?
Just be sure that the probe that is being used makes direct contact with the bottom of the thermowell. In essence, a thermowell is simply a sheath with a pipe thread so a water tight contection can be made without the actual thermocouple or temp probe. Then the probe is inserted into the thermowell and senses the temperature by the heat of the thermowell.
