I have a GEMS Sensors FS-480P that has 1/2" tube compression nuts on each end to connect up tubing. I got this sensor for free and would like to install it with my tri-clover RIMS system as a safety device.
The question is how to adapt 1/2" compression fittings to 1-1/2" tri-clamp.
The easiest thing that I can think of is:
1/2" compression cap --> brazed/soldered to --> 1/2" NPT Cap --> Threaded to --> 1/2" NPT-M to 1-1/2" tri-clover.
Is there any off the shelf piece that can reduce this at all?
I don't know of any fittings that go directly from 1/2" compression to 1 1/2" tri-clover, but maybe someone who deals with sanitary fittings alot would be able to source one. Home Depot and Lowes both sell 1/2" comp-> 1/2" NPT, so there's no need to solder/braze two caps together.
