Default Any pictures of thermowells on a keggle?

In the recent issue of BYO a guy built his own version of the Brutus Ten. In the article he mentions on his keggles he uses thermowells. Does someone have a setup like this and can upload a picture of what these thermowells look like?

This isn't mine, so I'm not sure how legal it is to post, but I'm sure the guy won't mind. Check out his complete build at wortomatic.com. It's titled Carl's Electric HLT.

So what exactly are these? How do they work?

Are they probes that are mounted onto a keggle so you can stick a temperature probe in them without damage to the probe?

Exactly. Thermowells are just a hollow tube closed off on the bottom that you can slide a thermocouple/thermometer in. I work with industrial sized thermowells in my profession, so I assume these are along the same lines.

Nope, he doesn't mind at all.
