as you might of guessed with all my posts, I am at the final stages of my build and now trying to tackle all the little issues that I have skipped but now need to do. here is one of them.

This is my herms heat exchanger, but I need an idea on how to connect it up to the rest of the system, I am using cam locks mainly, but what fittings are out there to get this pipe work which I believe is 10mm to fit a 1/2inch cam lock

your local plumbers merchants will sort you out with step down adapters or B&Q.
I can't see your pic link?

+1 1/2" bsp to 10mm compression fittings are common in brass at plumbers merchants, ebay seller metajune if u want one in SS and can wait for a slow boat from china..

for a less permenant fit than a compression fitting olive provides substitute a silicone oring or 2 for the olive it should seal ok but should u want to change anything you wont have a ridgid olive compressed on the tube..

OR consider using 8mm-3/8" inside diameter soft silicone tube which will make a good tight seal just shoved onto 10mm tube.

the solarprojects.co.uk site famous for the lil brown pumps sell 1/2" bsp to blue silicone tube fittings which will again slip over 10mm tube for a tight seal..

im using 2mm thick wall 8mm id silicone friction fitted on SS 10mm tube in my cfc, and am using one of the solar projects fittings to attach the beerout side of the pump to the chiller beer in feed.
