Anybody know of a source for weld in bungs that standard corny keg 40+psi PRV's thread into? I know they make threaded ones that use a gasket but I want a weld in version. Worst case is a salvage some old corny lids and cut them out myself.
I was hoping to just use beer parts (replacement corny screw in PRV's). I'm over everything NPT cold side brewing related. The old school Cornelius lids are definitely welded in. I think my easiest course of action will be to salvage some old lids. My plan is to weld them into tri-clamp end caps to use with sanke keg fermenter assemblies.Why not just get a PRV that uses 1/4" (or even 1/8") NPT threads and get a bung welded into the lid (or wherever you're going to get it welded into)? I've bought the 1/4" stainless bungs before, and they're not that expensive. You can then get the correct pressure release PRV you want (several sources for those too) and use that. I've seen those on the McMaster site.
I did order up a PRV from Keg Connection, but the picture was very deceiving. It LOOKED like it was 1/4" thread. Nope, more like 1/2" and aluminum. Zero use for me.
