1/2 Copper X Female Adapter by Nibco
This 1/2′ fitting to NPT female adapter can be used to install a ‘welded thermometer’ in 1, 5, or 10 gallon Clawhammer Supply Copper Still Kit. Simply install the fitting as shown in our article on ‘How to Install a Thermometer in a Still’ article. Simply drill or cut a hole in the side of a still, large enough to accommodate the 1/2 pipe fitting. Solder the fitting to the copper still. Wrap the thermometers 1/2′ male NPT threads with high temp, chemical resistant thread tape and screw it into the fitting. Hand tighten and snug with pliers. Do not over tighten. Using this copper fitting in conjunction with lead free solder and a stainless steel thermometer ensures that the contents of the still will not be contaminated by coming into contact with undesirable metals and material.
