Plugs, End Caps, & Bushings

Plugs, end caps and bushings are small accessories, but they are never negligible. In fact, they are widely used in a home brewing set ups. They are used to attached or secure parts in place. In a home brewing set up, plugs, gaps and bushings are often threaded. The threading on/in a fitting serves as a fastener for whatever object it is inserted into or that is inserted into it.

They come in different types (including barbed) depending on their applications. They can be made from plastic, brass, aluminum or stainless steel. However, for a home brewing setup, threaded plugs, caps and bushings made from stainless steel are suggested as they are rust-proof and can withstand stronger tension and torque loads. When choosing a plug, end cap or bushing, make sure that the fitting is compatible. This means that if you have a female pipe fitting, you need a male threaded insert and vice versa.

There are many ways on how you can use threaded inserts for a home brewing setup. In fact, there are a lot of ways on how you can use them to fasten different parts, tools and equipment to customize your home brewing setup.
