Q: How wide a gap will this handle? Thanks
Q: I installed this on a 3 gal igloo yellow cooler and it leaks .bulkhead through cooler then oring washer and nut can not stop it from leaking?
A: The washer on the fitting is thin and can in certain causes leak when the bulkhead is over tightened onto hr cooler wall, causing the gasket to slip into the cooler opening. Removing the fitting and re-applying tight enough to hold the fitting in place by not over tightened should resolve the leakage. If not, we can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org to further troubleshoot if needed
Q: What is the OD of this please?
A: The outer diameter is .840".
Q: What does HLT mean?
A: HLT Stands for Hot Liquor Tank
Q: Does this take any ball valve with a 1/2in NPT female connection?
A: Yes, So long as it is 1/2" Female NPT you should be good with any valve, brass or stainless
Q: What is the proprietary threading used for? Do you have a bulkhead like this with standard threading on both sides?
A: The threading is used with the compression set up we have produced for us for our full false bottom assembly. We do not currently offer these bulkheads with other thread types at this time
Q: Is this fitting supposed to come with the black gasket shown in the photo of the product? I got mine today and it does not have one.
A: the Fitting will come with a black or brown colored gasket when ordered, if this has been missed you can reach out to us with the shipping and order information at email@example.com if a replacement is needed
Q: Will this work for other Igloo coolers? I have an Igloo Max Cold that I've had for quite some time just gathering dust. Will this work on that cooler?
A: Igloo typically uses a standard spigot for their coolers, so the sidewall at the spot where the bulkhead would be applied should be the same. This would still be at your own risk, as we have designed these specifically for the round design coolers, and couldn;t guarantee them on other models
Q: The thread on one side is 1/2" MIP but what is the other side?
A: The inner diameter of the thread is 1/2" as well but uses a proprietary thread that would not be an NPT fitting
Q: I know you say this may not work for other coolers, I have a home depot cooler and need a bulkhead. Do you offer anything?
A: Some Home Depot coolers I have seen are Igloo, this bulkhead should work for those. I have also seen Rubbermaid coolers with Home Depot on them as well, which are not compatible. We do not offer bulkheads for anything other than Igloo. There should be a brand marking somewhere on the cooler.
