do I need to have anything welded like a nut for mounting?
are they a compression fitting?


There's a thread about that HERE mate :handgestures-thumbupleft:

The thread on the elements is 1" BSP, most get the female threaded socket welded to the keg & screw into that.

OK guys I've been caught out again and 50 elements sold in just over 2 weeks, I have another 50 turning up this week and will update this thread once they arrive.

I never expected to sell them so fast, I will do my best not to run out again.

Cheers.

I've actually made an enquiry about reversing the thread on these elements to provide a no weld option, fingers crossed I'll have some good news in a week or so :D
