Better late than never - right!
Ok so let me kind of explain how this works and then I can provide some part numbers. Keep in mind - this is not a perfect solution - but it works relatively well. The biggest issue is if you keep cranked down on the ball will get lodged in the NPT adapter unless there is enough pressure to dislodge it. Once that happens everything is fine. Sometimes though as you're releasing tension on the spring this can happen suddenly and water will go everywhere.
Back to how this works: the top PVC cap is threaded. The thumb screw goes through the tap and hits a thumb nut which sits inside the top of the spring (there is also a washer in between to make sure the thumb nut doesn't bind with the spring). When tightened, the thumb nut compresses the spring against the ball below which will seal up the opening in the NPT adapter. There is a length of 1/2" stainless round tube that floats inside the spring and this prevents the spring from kinking too severely. In my case I've adapted it from triclamp but that is obviously optional. The PVC cap has a few vent holes drilled (around 3/16") to let the pressure escape. It's also a good place to allow you to fill the valve. There is a locknut threaded onto the thumb screw before the cap to allow you to lock the screw from tightening (also a good way to remember where it was last time you used it).
So here are parts:
NPT adapter (reducing coupling 1" x 1/2"): McMaster 4464K534
4" clear PVC, 1" NPT: McMaster 4677T33
3/4" Viton rubber ball: McMaster 3645K7
1" PVC cap: McMaster 4596K44 or 1" Stainless cap: McMaster 4464K512
Thumb screw: McMaster 93015A217
Thumb nut: McMaster 90368A250
Spring: McMaster 1986K132
Stainless round tube: McMaster 8457K26 - I have to verify the cut but I believe it is 2.75-3".
Washer: McMaster 92217A520
Locknut: McMaster 91847A029
All these parts have really specific sizings so take note if you're trying to substitute something. The OD's are tight.
I'd recommend making sure you don't have this plumbed in such a way it could leak back into your fermenter. Mine has never leaked but it is always possible and you fill it with plain water (I use distilled).
Any questions - let me know!
