---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 22 Aug 2008 07:22:13 -0400 From: "A.J deLange" <ajdel at cox.net> Subject: Valves, Starsan An excellent source for many brewery needs, including valves of all sorts (sanitary 3A, check valves etc.) and other fittings is McMaster Carr. Their web site (www. mcmaster.com) makes it relatively easy to find even the most obscure piece, they sell to anybody and because I (in Virginia) live relatively close to them (N.J.) anything I order today arrives tomorrow without having to pay for overnight delivery. If you wish to pay more (sometimes lots more) for the same functionality there is always Cole Parmer. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * I'm sure that careful investigation would reveal that Starsan, like so many things in this world, "...is known to the state of California to produce birth defects..." by which I believe they mean rational thinking.

I've bought a lot of that sort of stuff from one particular seller on eBay: Sintrol. He's in Gurnee Il. At the moment he has a 3-way Teflon diaphragm valve with 3/4 sanitary fittings for sale, which is a nice valve design if you want to throttle, but probably not so much for switching flow. On the other hand, it's pretty cheap, and it should work. AFAIK, since it has a Teflon diaphragm, it should handle the temperature. http://cgi.ebay.com/ITT-Pur-Flo-3-4-Stainless-Teflon-Diaphragm-Vlv-3-Way_W0Q QitemZ170252882068QQihZ007QQcategoryZ11809QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewI tem If you contact him and tell him what you want, there's a good chance he'll have it and then he'll put it on an auction for you. I recommend installing valves and pumps and things like that with the 1/2 or 3/4 inch sanitary fittings. They're nice. Regards, Mike Sharp Kent, WA [1891.3, 294deg] AR Return to table of contents
