Designed to pull from the side of the kettle
instead of the middle. This helps reduce
trub from entering your fermenter. By
adjusting the height you can also control
how much wort you leave behind in the
kettle. Has a 1/2 inch MPT fitting on the end, that screws into the inside coupler of our Heavy Duty kettles. Will only work if your kettle has a 1/2 inch FPT coupler on the inside of the kettle.
Works well for setting you fluid pickup to edge of kettle. I found that the silicon tubing connection to the copper was loose and needed to add a clamp. Now I can't make easy height adjustments as I had hoped. No clogging problems at least.
Everything I ever ordered from here has been top notch. Does draw from the side but does not allow you to draw any lower into the kettle than the valve is which is what I wanted it for. I probably did not explain what I needed so I will just chalk this up to an experience.
Rig is solidly constructed and seals well so far (mine is relatively new). It maintains a good flow rate and makes it very easy to extract more liquid from the boil kettle, making it safer to tip. The quality of materials and construction are high, very much worth the asking price in my opinion
