True Weldless bulkheads are available in a number of configurations for varied applications. The 5/8″ Barb version is included in their Cooler Conversion Kit. I’ve used that extensively – See: Hands on Review Brew Hardware’s Mash Tun Conversion Kit – and I can tell you that it’s awesome.
If you’ve dealt with other weldless kits and bulkheads you’ll know that typically a certain finesse is required when installing. They can be a bit of a pain to to get working correctly and can require some adjustments over time to keep leaks under control. Depending on the design “just tight enough” is really close to “too tight, your o-ring just popped out”. True Weldless bulkheads – at least the style I have – are well thought out, well built and you can actually tighten them down.
The only bad thing I’ve run into with these is… availability can be an issue. They are popular and sell out. As such, I keep an eye on these. As of this posting, a number of configurations have just come back in stock – including 1/2″ with NPT Male Threads, Bulkhead with Elbow, and Bulkhead with mini dip tube. Stock can change quickly. Check the Bulkheads page at Brew Hardware for current availability.
