tri clamps are a sort of quick disconnect... just not all that quick. Personally I dislike tri clamps--but they are very sanitary--but, then again, on the hot side, sanitary is achieved with heat. IMO on the hot side, tri clamps add costs significantly--without improving function (ease of use.
Others, i am sure, disagree.
you could use the tri-clamps in combination with other disconnects. That is, tri-clamps coming off the kettles, and other quick disconnects elsewhere.
Alternatively, seems to me, you could attach other quick disconnects to the tri clamp barbs via a short piece of tubing. In that case, use the quick disconnects that have the disconnect on one side and a barb (as opposed to pipe thread) on the other. The two barbed ends face each other, connected with the tubing, and the disconnect end can be use to changes line quickly.
