CO2 tank regulator is an integral part of any draft beer system. With it, you will be able to maintain the excellent taste of the drink and not worry about storing conditions.
Besides, beer will not develop correctly without gas. That is why your bar is not complete without a gas pressure regulator, which will provide the necessary pressure while dispensing the drink into the glass.
After reading our article, you will know everything about the features of this equipment and where it can be purchased.
- What are the types of co2 tank regulator?
There are several different types of such products available on the market.
The most popular are the regulators of the primary and secondary gasses.
A primary gas regulator is needed to control the pressure at the outlet of the cylinder. This equipment can come with one pressure gauge (measuring only the dosing pressure) and with two pressure gauges (measuring the feed pressure as well as the amount of gas remaining in the cylinder).
A secondary gas regulator is needed if you plan to dispense several beer varieties at different pressures.
- What are the main components of such equipment?
As a rule, each pressure regulator is equipped with:
- Low and high pressure gauges;
- Adjustment screw;
- Shut-off valve;
- A rod that connects directly to the carbon dioxide cylinder.
- What is the optimal pressure for beer dispensing?
It depends on the type of beer you dispense. For most varieties it will be a pressure of 10-15 pounds per square inch.
If the manufacturer has not given you recommendations about the dispensing, start with 10 pounds and gradually increase the pressure until you get the perfect dispensing of the drink.
- How many kegs can you plug into one cylinder of this type?
You will be able to service from 2 to 4 kegs, depending on the ambient temperature. The colder it is, the more kegs you can serve.
