yup. Loc-Line.

Typically used for air delivery or oil delivery on automated machinery.

it's only rated for 170*F. So I'd be careful about using it for boiling wort.

I'm just going to use it for my recirc tube in the MT, easier than copper, if I have diff size batches it will be super easy to adjust the line to the correct level.

Great timing on this thread as I am finishing my keggles now...

While true...I and many others have used this in our BK's for recirc with no problems.

So take from that what you will.
