Tri Clover Compatible Fittings
Tri Clover compatible fittings can be a little confusing at first. But take a look in any commercial brewery (or dairy for that matter) and look to see what they are using to make their connections. They will almost certainly be using Tri Clover type sanitary connections. The advantage to these connectors is how easily they are cleaned and how sturdy the are. With no nooks or crannies for nasties to hide, they clean like a breeze. There are no ball-sockets like a conventional brass, plastic or stainless quick disconnect. You can see every surface that meets your precious wort. If that weren't reason enough: they don't leak. I had been using brass garden-hose type quick disconnects for years and I was always fighting sticky dripping wort getting on the rest of my brewery every batch. That slight leak would also create an air-bleed into the line that would inevitably cause my March pump to cavitate.
They are made from all 304/304L stainless steel components.
