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.

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: Hi Jared, as you've discovered, those gaskets do need to be on the outside. They have a fairly high melting point, around 600F I think and I've never had one melt or break down on me. That said, if you're using a high pressure burner on a small pot, the flames can lick up over the bottom of the pot if you crank it up too high. I tend to keep those types of burners turned down a bit to avoid damaging the gaskets. It is still high enough for a strong boil on a full pot. Low pressure burners shouldn't have that problem.
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.

Solid bulkhead to replace flimsy ones
I used this bulkhead after numerous attempts at making my own with 3/4” fittings. The goal was to reuse 3/4 SS Brewtech that I replaced with butterfly valves on my Chronicals. These very nice valves are now on both my 20 gallon kettles with unrestricted flow. The bulkhead is a real 3/4 NPT with a wide flange, a nice thick flat silicon gasket, a wide washer and a nut. It firmly secures the valve to the kettle, on the other side of the flange is a male MPT 1/2 tread where most users would typically Teflon and connect the ball valve.
Solid and reliable, I forgot where I bought it from years ago and was thrilled to buy it again for my second kettle. Totally worth the money.

Great Sturdy Bulkhead
This is way stronger than any previous 3 piece bulkhead by competition. No leaks. It is not a standard 13/16 - 7/8 hole You need a 1 inch hole. Also works exceptionally well on Rubbermaid Tuns.

works as advertised
Great product to add a weldless fitting, just be sure to save time and frustration and buy a greenlee 730BB-1 one inch knockout punch.
