These are my favorite bulkheads and the only ones I'll use. Sturdy and seals well. I put gaskets on both sides and I've never had a leak.

how long is the shank? I'm wondering if i can use this in an igloo cooler
Carl Rustic on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The shank is 1-7/8" long. This is the same bulkhead we use on our Rubbermaid cooler mash tuns and hot liquor tanks.
My bulkhead leaks if i put the gasket on the inside, no matter how soft or tight I crank it down. If I put it on the outside it doesn't leak at all, but since it's for a brew kettle, I'm wondering if it will melt from the heat of my propane burner. Any insight?
Jared Wyatt on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This gasket will stand up to the heat for a long while provided the flames don't lick it directly for too long on a given day. It is made of a soft silicone rubber that can withstand temperatures over 400 degrees momentarily, however continued exposure will eventually cause it to char and potentially dry out.
I can not get a 1" hole drilled in my keg to install. Any suggestions? Do the SS bulkheads come with 1/2" body so I can go with a smaller hole?
Kenneth Fort on Jun 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There are some other weldless fittings by Blichmann that have a 1/2" or 5/8" OD threading. Or you can make your own. You will be looking for pipe fittings that have a 3/8" ID and that will allow you to use a smaller hole.
I received the bulkhead and it only has one gasket. I am using this on a boil kettle. Should the gasket be inside or outside the kettle?
TedR on Nov 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We recommend putting the red silicone gasket on the outside as that tends to get the best results. We've seen people have success with both options though.
What is the OD of the 1/2” FPT side of the bulkhead?
Bradley Panasiti on Aug 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The outer diameter of the 1/2" FPT side (Threaded on both outside and inside) is 0.98" or roughly 1 inch.
Will this fit as a direct replacement for the digiboil (7 gallon) outlet valve?
Doug Haviland on Aug 17, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I measured my 7 gal digiboil and the hole in the side is 0.85" (21mm). The digiboil hole has a pressed flange in the metal around the hole so I don't think it would work even if you enlarged the hole to 1" for this bulkhead.
Would this weldless kit withstand 15psi pressure? I'm wondering if I could add this to the manhole on my bright tank. Thanks!

Almost Perfect
The Bulkhead hardware was exactly what I needed for use on a stainless steel pot (thin metal). My only suggestion is to make sure you have a silicone washer to help in sealing. The rubber washer did not conform perfectly. I added a very small amount of 100% silicone RTV and the washer sealed.

No Leaks
Easy to install and no leaks. The gasket has a groove that it sits in some when you tighten it it does slide out of place.

Through-wall for mash screen
wanted to add a 12"mash screen to my 30 and 55 gallon brew kettles. I enlarged the holes that are on my Blichmann kettles for these and it worked out great.

Good Quality!
This is a well made piece and seems to be a good value! It makes it easier to modify a tank if you are not a welder.

Nice fittings!
Great quality fittings. I installed these on my HLT and like the flat gasket much better than other fittings I have, from another company, that came with o-rings and nuts without the o-ring retaining groove. So far, these gaskets have stayed in place.

Got a spare rubber gasket?
Quality product with limited instructions. Technical support wasn’t firm on whether the rubber gasket went inside or out, their best guess was put one on both inner and outer…
