need a 1/2\" X 8\" thermowell

Options
I can't find one anywhere, 3 different wholesalers tell me they don't exist, longest they have is 5". I know Viessmann supplies them with their tanks, I suppose I could get one from them if I had to.

Any ideas?

    Is this,

    what you are looking for? W-R seems to have an 8¼" one. Or you could use the "packing-nut" type and insert whatever length capillary.

    An 1/2 copper to male adapter, a cap

    and file or drill out the stop in the cop X FIP adapter. Sooldedr on the cap, cool, teflon tape and tighten away.

    Use L or K copper for a nice long lasting well.

    Zac,

    Buderus has one for their horizontal tanks. It's made for them by Honeywell I believe.The depth of the tube from the bottom of the mount is a bit over 8". Find a Buderus dealer and they'll be able to get it. Chris

    Mamac, yup

    Good stuff across their line. I do like Hot Rod's home-grown well idea too. Cool.

    Do not forget the heat-conductive paste. In a pinch you can use Vaseline and aluminum powder. If the well is vertical, use mineral oil or glycerin kept about an inch down from the top for expansion.

    3/8\"

    those look nice, but i need at least 3/8" ID to fit tekmar universal sensor.

    i think those buderus ones are the same as the viessmann ones, we have better viessmannn representation around here though.

    i'll probably try hot rods idea, same thing i was going to do for my custom copper towelwarmer to be able to attach it to the wall w/flanges ;)

    You can bush down the 1/2 copper tube

    to get to whatever diameter sensor you need. I started drilling 1/2 copper adapters years ago to mount Grohe hand held shower adapters.

    I'd be glad to ship this one to you.
