I'm trying to understand how the fittings are connected to the pots - welded, weldless, quality???

Could someone post some pics of the inside and outside of the fittings without the thermometer, valve, etc. attached? I appreciate any help here, as I'm trying to plan the next iteration of my brewery and don't have direct access to these pots to inspect in person...

I don't have any pictures for you, but they are weldless.

Thanks folks... how does the quality compare with off the shelf weldless fittings?

They are weldless and very high quality. They are purpose-built, not off-the-shelf pipe fittings made to work.

I bought a 20 gallon boil kettle and 15 gallon MLT with the false bottom from Austin Homebrew about a year ago and have been very satisfied with them.

Easy to use and easy to clean.

Thanks again... I'm torn between the Blichmanns and properly welded keggles... the research continues...
