Default Keggle dip tube

I have two feet of 1/2" diameter copper tubing and plan to buy a 3 piece ball valve. Does anyone know what compression fittings I'll need to get it all put together? Do you need to use teflon tape?

Thanks!

You need a full coupling welded in your keggle or a weldless kit with a coupling. Then you will need a whatever size NPT thread on one side of your compression fitting then the other side is your 1/2" compression fitting. See the link below. It is to be used if your coupling is 1/2" NPT.

I think I'm getting the jargon down. So I need a weldless bulkhead (which will be physically attached to the keg and then will attach my valve to the bulkhead and then whatever to the coupler on the inside? Hope I'm getting this right

Yes, the coupling will either be welded, or weldless. Ball valve on the outside, and compression fitting on the inside.

So something like this would work if I got the vale with it, right?

Then all I would need was a weldless dip tube attachment for the inside coupling?

This is the best one I have seen. It was a bulkhead and a diptube in one.

Pardon, but i dont quite get it.

Would it be something like this:

Ball valve>SS flat round thing i forgot the name>silicon gasket>(Keg Wall)>CENTER PICKUP - WELDLESS VERSION DRAIN / DIP TUBE SS KIT


Or inbetween all that i have to insert a bulk head of any type?

Sorry for the intrusion but i'm sorcing my list of itens and this is REALLY bugging me!!

What you are showing could be used weldless or welded. What you are calling a bulkhead is called a full coupling in a welded set up or can be an oring set up if weldless. Hope this helps. Google keggles and check out the images. This should help with the confusion.
