19" of 1/2" OD thickwalled pyrex (borosilicate) glass tubing
2 high temp silicone orings to seal the tube to:
1/2 stainless compression elbow with 1/4" NPT threads towards the vessel.
Stainless tubing formed as a protective cover and slotted to view level







The top of the protective tube will accept a bolt to the top of your vessel with a spacer in between. I used a piece of beverage tubing as the spacer.

$50 shipped

Bobby, is this less likely to boil in the tube like my smaller diameter one?

I think the boiling thing is related to the fitting getting hot which would seem to be burner/pot dependent. Maybe the fact that the protective tube is touching the fitting would matter, acting as a heat sink.

This setup was the sight glass that I installed in my MLT and I did that because I was originally planning to fill it with strike water directly from my RV hose. I'm fine with filling the HLT first and then transferring so I'd rather not clean the sight for no reason.

This same installation did have a bubble problem in my BK but that was when i ran the 23 tip jet burners at full throttle and flames licked up the sides overheating the fitting. bdavanza, did you try it with a heat shield yet?

What kind of shipping works to SA? Fedex, UPS? I've have to do some research.

very snazzy..nice work.
I just spray the fitting with a little sanitizer in a spray bottle when it heats up. Problem resolved.

I'm brewing right now, and the fitting does not boil during the rolling boil (with heat shield) but it did when I had the KAB4 cranked up to get to the boil. That's acceptable. I may need one more of those O rings though, it was leaking when I first started the boil.
cheers
