2" Tri Clamp Half Gasket
Flat “Half Gasket”
for Sanke Keg to 2” Tri Clover Connection
Food Grade Silicone
This “Half Gasket” is different from a standard “Full Gasket” (SKU# 1059) in the following way:
A “Full Gasket” has “ribs” that fit into the groove cut-outs of a Tri Clover connection. This groove will be on BOTH of the items you are connecting.
A “Half Gasket” has only ONE “rib”. The other side is completely smooth and flat.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Although a Sanke Keg can be connected to distilling columns, etc. using 2 inch Tri Clover fittings, the keg neck DOES NOT have a groove cut into it.
More importantly: Due to the thickness of the flange in the Sanke keg’s neck it is very difficult to get a Tri-Clover clamp to fit around the neck, the “Full Gasket”, and the flange of the column.
Even if you DO somehow manage to squish the connection together there is a strong likelihood of leaks, and of eventual failure of the gasket.
