Default How much can weldless fittings support?

So for now we'll probably end up going weldless fittings on our keggles and eventually have them welded (trying to reduce our immediate costs - as the brewery build itself is a few grand we're shelling out!)

Curious how much weight/equipment a weldless bulkhead can handle. Anyone think this will be fine?

We're thinking of this setup in at least 1 place (this is the one that I am a little concerned about).

1) Weldless bulkhead from Bargain Fittings
2) 1/2" Stainless Ball Valve
3) Tri Clover npt end (with clamp)
4) Tri-Clover Thermowell from Brewers Hardware (3" long)
5) Tri-Clover barbed end (with clamp)

I think that would be pushing it.
