KEG / Kettle kit install

THIS INSTALL SHOWS OUR standard KEG / KETTLE weldless kit installation. 

MALE NPT THREADS REQUIRE WHITE OR YELLOW PTFE (TEFLON) PLUMBERS TAPE BEFORE ASSEMBLY.   YOU WILL GALL (BOND) THE THREADS WITHOUT IT.

PROTECT YOUR Valves, bulkheads, tubing and sight gauge from direct flame exhaust.  Sight gauge tubing will soften / melt if flame wash heats it past 250 F. Silicone o-rings and (PTFE) teflon valve seals will melt if you dry fire your keg or kettle.   Silicone tubing will melt if it touches hot parts.  Thermometers have glass faces but the plastic seal on the face will melt if you allow it be in the flame exhaust.

 

A HEAT SHIELD (a piece of flat metal under the edge of your kettle) should be used to keep the flames off the sight gauge, valves and thermometers.
