Yambor,
I too ordered a couple of different items from McMaster but finally settled on this one:51135K83. Its 3/8 ID with 1/8" thick wall. Seems to do the trick with a 1/2" port 3 piece ball valve. I did purchase (5) stainless steel water tank 12" hose and cut the ends off. It was cheaper than buy the fitting. They are brass with 3/4 NPT connections. But these worked out well with my March pumps.

PM me if you want a picture or two.

I can order them in on my next order. I just placed one so it might be awhile before I restock.

The 1/2" ID Silicone tubing that Bargain fittings sells is 1/8" wall (3/4" OD). This is fine for low pressure high temperature like gravity transfers and march pumps. I use it with RIMS, whirlpool, etc.

Yes both the 1/2" and 3/8" ID silicone tubing I stock is 1/8" thick.

All unreinforced silicone tubing is for non pressurized transfers. Anything over 10 psi (72 degree F) is going to blow it up like a balloon and make a loud bang. At wort transfer temps the tubing is going to be more flexible and have a lower psi rating.

Never have any back pressure on the outlet of a silicone hose.

Are you saying I should not use this tubbing with my pump. Next monday was going to be the inagural brew with the new cam locks and the new march pump. Do I now need new tubbing.

The 1/8 wall silicone tubing is what most of us here use. Just don't restrict flow downstream of the pump. If you need to restrict flow, use a ball valve directly connected to the outlet of the pump. Restricting flow at the end of the outlet hose would cause pressure to build up which wouldn't be pretty...

I have a 3/4" camlock that I bought some #317 silicone o-rings from o-rings and more. The OD of the oring is a bit on the small side. It still seems to be retained by the internal groove - I can't shake it out, but I have not brew tested it yet.

Curious if you had another idea.

Jason
I just went ahead and bought item #9396K288 from mcmaster. It's the same oring as you used. I coulda got a bigger OD and fixed the problem you describe....but the ID would be proportionately wider and it would surely slip off. So I figured I'd toss it into my order and take my chances. FWIW, I'm glad I went 3/4"....it's usually in stock because there's less competition

Your order shipped. I've reordered and I'm considering just shipping silicone o-rings with these as a standard option.

What do you guys think? Same price and I'll ship an o-ring to replace the black gasket in the female fittings.
