Is the Stainless Steel used in this stone type 304, or 316?

What is the length of the stone just by itself. Also, how many micron is the stone?
A: the stone measures 1" and is a 2 micron diffusion
Q: Hi, can you please confirm this is a 3/8" barb? I have ordered a similar piece from another supplier and it turned out to be a 1/4" barb. Thanks

Q: Can you also use this for CO2 and carbonate with it or just for oxygen?
A: Yes you can, we have done these here at the shop within a keg.

Q: Is there any gap between the stone and the threaded cap? I'm concerned about cleaning and sanitation.
A: There is no gap between the diffusion stone and threaded portion of this fitting, cleaning and sanitation should not be an issue.
Q: Is the difussion stone short enough to fit in the center of a standard 1/2" stainless T fitting without interference? Or does it designed to go in the end of the T?
