Thank you Bobby M. That was what I was worried about. So you would have to have a 1.5" Camlock pair and a 1.5" to 1" bushing to make this work.

Well, I'd lean towards drilling and tapping out a 1.5" Dust Cap just due to cost and simplicity. I'd also only go after this if you're able to solder or weld a bare bones Male cam QD to your vessel. Making 1.5" NPT weldless would be a major PIA.

Sightglass, Refractometer, Ball Valve, Weldless bulkhead, Thermometer, Decals, Stainless Steel Fittings, Compression Fittings, Camlock Quick Disconnects, Scale, RIMS tube, Plate Chiller, Chugger Pump, Super Clear Silicone Tubing, and more!

New Stuff?
