co2 nipple


Im putting togeather a small PVC T in order to get co2 into a needle wheel pump to churr up co2. I want to connect the co2 safely to a cap on the T. I saw that some people here have been using nipples like the one that can be seen in this pictured (close to the bottom of the reactor(borrowed from Ibn)), I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it is called and where I might find one?

looks like the male/male air line connectors you can buy at the LFS just siliconed into the hole.

EDIT found a picture:

OK, so there is nothing thatt works like bulkhead for connecting co2 into a pvc reactor?

Does pvc glue make a tight bond between pvc and the plastic in these connectors?

Well there are these Fourmost things.

It depends on the plastic. Thick PVC and such yes, but the thin/flexible/transparent stuff might not work with PVC cement.

that looks great, they say that the inside diameter on these things is 3/32, do you know if a standard sized air (co2) tube fits onto it?
