All Stainless Heatstick design
 
3 Attachment(s)

Hey gang, I've been working on an all stainless TriClamp HeatStick design. One that doesn't require sealant or JB Weld so to not leak and also allows for easy element maintenance or replacement. Oh and can be done both Straight or with the 90 degree elbow. Cost is the downside Here are some mock-up pics, let me know what you think:

One question is how are you connecting the element to the tri-clamp?
Yeah I wanted to stay away from having to use silicone or JB Weld. You can use the 'Element Guard Kit' or the simple 'Element Adapter' from StillDragon. Here I show mine using the Element Adapter:

Update: Last night was Brew Day (AG- Firestone Walker Wookey Jack Clone), the new Heat Stick worked great and had no leaks! It may be a bit longer than needed for my BK, however it would also work great in my deeper 10gal HD Mashtun.
