Brand:

Country of Manufacture:

United States

                         **** MADE IN AMERICA ****

                        TIRED OF THE  U. S. LOSING

             MANUFACTURING TO OTHER COUNTRIES ?  

      Most brewers agree that our contracted factory in toledo is the very best.

These conicals are made from a true #304 stainless steel. Meaning they are made with 18% chromium & 8% nickel ( 18/8 ) and papers of authenticity are shipped inside every unit to prove it. Each conical is handmade right here in the U. S. by hard working Americans.   Our welders have a unique process using a faster spool and cooler temperature. This eliminates the danger of heat damage because as the stainless cools down after a typical hot welding process, the carbon within the stainless combines with the chromium to form chromium carbides. What this does is effectively reduce the chromium value from the stainless steel and its resultant corrosion protection properties.

In effect the stainless steel does not have the anti - corrosion ability it had before the welding process, and no passivation or electro - polishing will restore it. Even polishing to a mirror finish will only disguise the H.A.Z. ( heat affected zone ) but the damage is already done and sooner or later the heat affected steel may start to pit. We have avoided this danger. 

in addition, we redesigned the stand by bracing the legs with welded struts and eliminating the cumbersome tall side arms and crossbar with wing nut bolt. Instead, we use a Lid-Clamp for the lid that has a unique design contracting as it is installed. The result is a 100% perfect seal with even pressure all the way around. This is far superior to the wing nut bolt design that simply pushes down on the center of the lid, and sooner or later the lid would become concave in the middle. We avoided this danger as well. Our new slimmed down version also allows the fermenter to stand shorter at only 32.5". This is a great advantage if there is a clearance issue in your fridge. Our lids also have a welded center ferrule allowing the discerning homebrewer the option to push the beer with gas or to simply run a blow-off tube. Of course a #7 bung & airlock fits nicely into the ferrule as well. ( extra tri/clamp, barb and seal included at no extra cost ) Conical must pass a vigorous inspection for any contamination  and  a typical signed metallurgical test report  is included inside each conical. We import only our stands and hardware parts from overseas, ie; valves, struts, tri/clamps and barbs. Lastly, our conicals are polished and placed in our state of the art micro - air unit before final inspection by management.  Conical seperates from cradle stand making cleaning a snap. Perfect for 10 gallon batches.

          We are approaching 2000 feedbacks...all positive ! !

                 Just read what Craig from N. Y. has said.

" I purchased a conical fermenter from Dave 5 years ago and could not be   happier. The best thing from buying from Dave was if you have a question, you can talk to the person who designed it and built it and supports it. Even 5 years after the purchase, I contacted Dave with a question and he promply answered as if I had just bought it. His customer service is exceptional and I highly recommend his equiptment. "

Included with this conical :

1 Heavy Duty lid ( 2MM thick ) with 1 1/2" sanitary welded ferrule.  

4 stainless steel tri-clamps and seals. ( NO THREADS ANYWHERE )

3  1.5" ferrules.

1 3/4" sanitary transfer ball valve.

1 huge 1 1/2" sanitary dump valve. (  big mouth butterfly design )

2 stainless steel barbs.

 

When buying a conical you should ask :

1.) Is it made in America ?

2.) Is it free of any contamination and can you offer documented proof ?

3.) Does any metallurgical test report come with this fermenter ?

** NOW THAT YOU ARE ARMED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE THE BEST POSSIBLE CHOICE FOR QUALITY AND WORKMANSHIP, WE HOPE YOU CONSIDER OUR CONICALS WHEN MAKING YOUR NEXT PURCHASE IN HOMEBREWING. **
