Choosing the Right Brewing Hardware
Knowing what type of valve(s) you need will help you make a better, more informed decision when making your purchase.
Valves that are used in brewing applications are divided into two categories:
- The way they are connected to the pipe or the fitting
- Threaded valves, which generally have an MPT type of threading and can thread onto a pipe
- Tri-clamp connection (aka Tri-Clover), which use a gasket and a clamp that fit over the pipe, vessel or fitting to hold it together
- The type of closure system that is inside the valve
- Ball valve type closure, which uses a little ball that makes a one-quarter turn of the valve to go from a completely closed position to a completely open position
- Butterfly valve, which uses a thin disc that also operates on a one-quarter turn principle from fully closed to fully open
The threaded valve is by far the most common as it’s inexpensive, versatile and easy to install. However, a minor drawback of this type is that the threads can retain contaminants and therefore have to be cleaned regularly.
