  5. 2422 - Those look like tri-clamp fittings? A lot of breweries use those on beer plumbing since they're easier to clean and sanitize than threaded connectors.

  6. 2422-That makes sense Tim. I had wondered whether the stainless steel appearance was due to a food application.

  7. Well, I was close! Wine and Beermaking equipment is pretty much interchangeable :)
