Default SS RIMS tube

I bought the SS RIMS tube from Brewers Hardware
Trying to decide how to mount it on my new rig.
How are you guys mounting this?

I used U bolts for mine.....however you mount it, make sure you can take it off easily because you may need to drain it.

Why? Isn't that why Derrin has the triclovers on the end, so you can easily remove them and drain the tube?

The triclamps are so cool. I'd like to maybe find a similar mounting solution.
Something with a strap or clamp, or something, to lock it in place for operational, and 'break loose' for cleaning,

I have mine mounted horizontally. With the inlet facing down it drains just fine so far.

I have mine mounted vertically. One U-bolt through the frame with wing nuts and coupled directly to the pump outlet. It's solid, no vibration. And with Derrin's design, I can remove everything except the bottom half of the tube with the tri-clovers. The only thing that I can't CIP is around the thermocouple at the top, but that comes off with a tri-clover too.

See post #3 and use wing bolts for easy disassembly.

Sure...all depends on orientation. My rims is horizontal with a horizontal inlet and very outlet. Because of the pipe contour there may be fluid left. So it depends on the build.
