Description

Stop leaving clean, perfectly good, wine in your tank and always drain from the perfect height with our tri-clamp style rotating racking arms. Remove your existing tri-clover butterfly valve and place this rotating racking arm between the tank and your valve. When it is time to rack off slightly loosen the clamp nearest the tank and use the built in handle to rotate to just above the lees level.

We recommend using a white rotating gasket and placing it between the welded in tank fitting and this rotating arm. Because the micro finish is hard and slippery it allows the rotating arm to rotate in place while still maintaining a seal. A standard black EPDM gasket is placed between the rotating arm and the butterfly valve and is always kept completely tightened.

The length of the arm after the elbow is about 8" allowing you to draw from 8" above or below the valve level. The length before the elbow is about 10" with a diameter of 1". If you have one of our older racking arms, without the handle built into it, we suggest your assemble the rotating arm and butterfly valve in such a way that the arm is pointed in the same direction as the handle on your butterfly valve. In this manner you always know how the racking arm is positioned in your tank.

Manufactured from 304-type stainless steel with a polished finish. 1.5" tri-clover connection. You will need (2) 1.5" tri-clover clamps, (1) 1.5" Rotatable gasket, (1) 1.5" EPDM gasket, a 1.5" tri-clover butterfly valve, and of course a tank full of wine or beer with a tri-clover ferrule (fitting) welded on!

Will the 1.5"TC racking arm elbow go through a 1.5"TC x 4" fitting on my jacketed brite tank?
Sherwin Antonio on Jun 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Sherwin - The arm will go through a 1.5" TC opening. I cannot confirm if the bend would pass through a straight 4" tube though, if that's what you're asking.

Very useful, not just for flat bottomed tanks
I first bought this for a 300 L flat bottomed tank and it worked great. When I 'graduated' to a 675 L conical bottom tank on legs with racking port I thought I no longer needed it, but it is useful there too rotating all the way down to the sloping bottom to carefully rack the wine.

Work Really Well
We added these to a number of lagering tanks that we have, and they allow us to pull more beer out of the tank without disturbing the yeast that collects at the bottom of the tank. They work great and are easy to adjust.

Tri Clam Racking Arm
I have used these for the past several years and they pretty much do what you need them to do. The one suggestion I have for the manufacturer is to bevel cut the end of the arm so it would lay almost flat against the bottom of the tank. The current design is limiting since it is flush cut on the end. A simple fix by the manufacturer and this would be 5star.
