How do you use a CO2 kegerator coupler?

Find the locking neck on the kegerator, and turn the coupler clockwise 25°. Then, pull out on the handle, push it down into the keg valve and release the handle. This will lock the coupler in place and securely attach it to the kegerator. With the coupler attached to the keg, slowly turn on the CO2 cylinder.

Should my CO2 tank be inside or outside of the kegerator?

Should my CO2 tank be inside or outside of the Kegerator? Although it doesn’t make a significant difference either way, most CO2 tanks are mounted outside of the refrigeration compartment. This allows for a better use of space inside the refrigerator to fit kegs.

What are the parts of a kegerator?

One of the most important parts of your kegerator is the keg coupler. Think of the keg coupler as a “key” and the valve of a keg as the “lock”. They can’t work without each other. The keg coupler attaches to the valve and to a CO2 compressed gas line. It allows the compressed air to enter the keg and push out the beer.

What does a CO2 regulator do in a kegerator?

A regulator is an essential part of a kegerator dispense system and monitors your CO2 pressure. You can find single gauge regulators or dual gauge regulators, which connect to the air line and read the pressure. With a single gauge regulator, the display will show you your CO2 pressure.

How do you hook up a CO2 regulator to a keg?

Attach the gas line to the CO2 regulator output barb and tighten screw clamp. Connect the other end of the gas line to the keg coupler and tighten screw clamp. Using a rubber washer and nut, attach the CO2 regulator to the CO2 tank.

How do you install a keg coupler?

To install your keg coupler to your kegerator, you must first attach the CO2 regulator to the CO2 cylinder. Make sure that the cylinder is filled and the valve is closed. Then, securely pair up the regulator to the CO2 cylinder. Attach the gas line to the “gas out” port on the regulator and secure in place with a clamp.

How do you connect a gas kegerator to a beer line?

Connect Beer and Gas Lines Youll need two lines to set up your kegerator - the beer line and the gas line. The beer line connects to the keg by way of the keg coupler and delivers cold beer to the tap faucet. The gas line connects to the CO2 regulator on the CO2 tank, then also connects to the keg coupler.

What do I need to set up a kegerator?

Youll need two lines to set up your kegerator - the beer line and the gas line. The beer line connects to the keg by way of the keg coupler and delivers cold beer to the tap faucet. The gas line connects to the CO2 regulator on the CO2 tank, then also connects to the keg coupler.

What does a kegerator regulator do?

As one of the most important components of a kegerator, the regulator controls the flow of CO2 or Nitrogen from the cylinder through the line. If the pressure needs adjusting, the regulator is where you would make those adjustments to find the right pressure. How Do You Make Adjustments With a Regulator?

What is a primary CO2 regulator for a keg?

A primary CO2 regulator hooks up to your CO2 tank. In simple draft configurations, the air line then runs from the regulator to the keg coupler. If you are dispensing multiple kegs from one tank of gas, the airline might pass through a gas blender or secondary regulator before reaching the coupler.

How do CO2&nitrogen gas regulators work?

The contents of CO2 & nitrogen gas tanks are under extremely high pressure. The main function of any regulator is to lower that pressure to a safer, more usable level before the gas reaches the keg.

How do I read the pressure on my CO2 regulator?

With a dual gauge regulator, you want to look at the gauge that shows a range of 0-60 PSI (pounds per square inch). To read your pressure on the regulator, you will see an arrow point to your current CO2 pressure in PSI. What pressure should my CO2 tank be set to?
