Re: Force Carbination of 50ltr Keg

Thanks Clive. I've only just put my coupler together. I may have to wind some more PTFE on the top ball valve as the coupler threads are shorter and it didn't seem very tight, it was tight - just not 'very'. A pressure test will sort that out. So... SNAP! http://s24.postimg.org/gs680scph/keg.jpg Che...

Re: Force Carbination of 50ltr Keg

Im just starting to get the ball valves and keg couplers together and got a quick question, should I use PTFE on the ball valves?

Re: Force Carbination of 50ltr Keg

Makes sense :) I've seen some smaller handled ball valves on ebay that look nice and compact. Obviously offering less control for perging gas. I may buy one to put on the gas side for when I run the keg without gas connected, I know the check valve is there but the ball valves are only 2 quid delive...

Re: Force Carbination of 50ltr Keg

1/2" baalvalves part number 16835 , 1 x 1/2 tee piece part number 14307, 2 x 1/2 nipple part number 14462 and finally a JG fitting Clive, I've been looking on ebay at fittings.

Re: Kegs arrived, 30l

Going back to spear removal. I've seen mentioned that you can place a 5p coin on top of the spear and insert and engage the coupler and this will retract the safety clip, is this true?

Re: Kegs arrived, 30l

Sizes below. The 20L will be tight for me. Might have to wait until you get yours barneey :D I also see that the 20L is marked as 'Standard: US' Does this mean the spear won't be threaded? http://s13.postimg.org/mv6po67pj/Scan0020.jpg http://s16.postimg.org/5rt8h0905/Scan0022.jpg http://s23.postimg....

Re: Kegs arrived, 30l

barneey, I see from your photos the 50L keg is 21" tall. Is the 20L keg you have the same height?

I've tried to google for the width and I got 10", would you say that was correct?

Cheers!

Re: Kegs arrived, 30l

So as these are euro kegs the spear is threaded with a sefety clip, unlike the c clip style?

Re: Kegs arrived, 30l

Cracking reply barneey, thanks for that. Absolutely true though, price and quality, and its what they use in pubs. The tall 20L kegs seem an ideal alternative to cornys. As you say you cant get your arm in but I havent wanted to get my arm in my 2" cap plastic kegs :D When I emailed crusader I had a...
