We use a stainless steel ferrule instead of a copper flare because a copper flare will wear out quickly. Cheap, thin walled copper pipe (DWV) is used by the copycats of our products in order to make the flare on the end of the pipe.
DWV (Drain Waste Vent) pipe is very soft, will crack over time and should not be used on wear points. Beware of rubber gaskets on copycat parts, they will leach chemicals into your alcohol.
We use alcohol resistant gaskets. The high grade stainless steel ferrules that we use are silver brazed (not soldered) with food grade silver and will not leak - ever. Our copper pipe is heavy duty thick walled type L. These moonshine still heads include a thermometer of your choice and a stainless steel tri-clamp & gasket.The included 3/4 copper union makes it ready for attaching to copper pipe. Connection allows for the use of a digital or a high quality dial thermometer.
These will work on most modern beer kegs and commercially available 2 inch kettles. Just ask, we usually answer our emails within an hour. For our silver brazing we use.
