Pushfit reducer/splitter

Post by soupdragon » Sat Nov 21, 2020 6:04 pm

Hi all

Is there such a thing as a push fit reducer/splitter?

I know there's other ways to do it but one of these would be my easiest option. I want to split a standard gas into two but reduced to standard beer line diameter for flexibility. I need to buy a couple of things whichever way I do it.
I've seen splitters and reducers but nothing that combines the two.

Cheers. Tom

Get a splitter and then insert a stem reducers?

Just be aware of splitting gas into two kegs if they are already gassed up at different pressures (or even one just pressurised), without a one way valve things can travel between kegs as they equalise.

Got 2 stem reducers off eBay, £4 delivered :)

Both kegs will be at the same pressure thankfully. Used to just split the 3/8 to the two kegs but the line is too rigid for my liking. Changed over to a single feed but reduced to 3/16 and it worked well but I don't want to keep swapping the gas over from the in use keg to the conditioning keg.
Job should be a good-un :D

Cheers. Tom
