Does anyone here have a Stout Tanks & Kettles system which came with the standard adapter attached for a electric element and also uses the 1.5" Tri Clover X 1" NPS Element Adapter from Brewers Hardware?

My issue is that I am afraid that the 5500w LWD Camco fold back Element may eother come back and hit the inside of the kettle wall or at least try to reenter the fitting. Anyone have this issue using these products?

I don't have one, but keep in mind you can bend the element if need be. So once installed you can widen to ensure it doesn't hit the wall.

Have never bent one before. Am wondering if I do would I ever be able to remove it and re-install it? If not I wonder then why I am getting tri-clamp fittings?

I have that element adapter (not on a Stout tank) and you probably won't be able to get a ripple element through the adapter itself, nevermind the kettle. I tried, I tried bending within reason and went to a straight element instead. Look around and you'll see most people ran into this. I think Brewers Hardware has a 2" adapter now that probable works fine.

Thanks for your reply. I know that I won't get the ripple to work and am going with a 5500w fold back LWD element. My issue is trying to find out if the product from Brewers Hardware will work on what Stout Tanks & Kettles will be sending me. I have asked both company's for feedback and have sent a last ditch effort question to ST&K today. I may have to wait until I get the kettles here which is slated to be sometime in November at this point. But any help is much appreciated.

I sure will. I'm waiting on replies from John at Stout Tanks & Kettles as well as from my question I posed to Bolts in his thread.

I like the looks of the other option but the thoughts of drilling those beautiful shiny kettles turns my stomach.
