How to connect and disconect a low profile coupler?

Connecting the coupler

  • It goes on the top of the keg
  • Put it into position and give it a quarter-turn twist clockwise
  • Do not overtighten it
  • Stand up to get leverage, push and rotate until it locks into place

Disconnecting the coupler

  • Put one hand on the keg, one hand on the coupler (you can hook a finger around the line to help)
  • Rotate the coupler counterclockwise until it pops up
  • Turn it another quarter to be able to remove it

If the keg is empty and you want to change it with a full one, you will first need to remove the coupler from it. You will have to push down slightly on the handle, pull it out, and bring it up.

Afterward, you will need to place one hand on the keg and the other on the coupler and subsequently take it out.

If a gas cylinder is empty, you may want to replace it with a new one. You will first have to find a tank, which matches the gas cylinder you currently have. With the help of a wrench, you will need to loosen the threading on the gas tank, a process that is similar to changing a propane tank.

Afterward, gently put the regulator down, without throwing it. Set aside the empty gas cylinder and grab a full tank. Sometimes, they have a red cap to indicate that it has not been used before. Remove the red cap and subsequently make sure that the component which you will need to attach to it has a gasket. You will then have to line the threads up and subsequently tighten it by hand. You will need a wrench again for the following step, which involves tightening the gasket to the new tank.

However, make sure you do not overtighten it, as this may damage the components and the new tank will thereby not last for a long time. You can test it after you tighten the gasket. Do not forget to turn the line switches back on or otherwise you will not have any pressure going to the kegs.

After you complete these steps, the gage should indicate that the tank is now full and the line pressure will also rise back up. As for a nitrogen tank, the threading will be different, but the process of replacing it with a full tank is relatively the same.

The first sign you should look for when trying to tell the difference between a Co2 tank and a nitrogen cylinder is the label, which is usually present on the cylinder. However, the threading is another telltale sign which you will have to look for when trying to differentiate between a Co2 tank and a nitrogen tank. Accordingly, the threads on a nitrogen cylinder are on the inside, whereas the threads on a Co2 cylinder are on the outside.

People with a sensitive stomach can tolerate much easier nitro cold brew coffee.

Another amazing benefit is that you get the rich, creamy, sweet taste from the nitrogen, without sugar, cream, or any dairy being added.

Nitrogen is an odorless and colorless gas with smaller bubbles than carbon dioxide. These tiny bubbles dissolve slowly in your cold brew coffee and give a thick, heavy feel to it. Nitrogen can make a strong, black coffee taste smooth and sweet. Nitrogen is a natural preservative also, which gives a practical kick to your coffee experience: by pushing out oxygen it keeps the coffee fresh-tasting all day long.

Cold Brew is a way of brewing coffee where the ground coffee is steeped only in cold water for up to 24 hours. This brewing process yields a richer, smoother, less acidic flavor with a higher caffeinated kick. Cold Brew on tap is dispensed with Nitrogen gas. Cold-brew coffee started to gain popularity in recent years because of its many health benefits.

If regular coffee upsets your stomach, cold brew might not. The only way to know is to try it. The cold extraction process produces a sweeter and more flavorful result because it brings out fewer of the coffee’s bitter compounds. If you like your coffee hot, you can heat up a cold brew, it will not affect the flavor.

If liquid is not pouring out of the faucet, the first thing you may want to check is whether you have enough gas in the Co2 or nitrogen tank.

You need to look at the gage which shows you the tank pressure and, if it indicates zero, it means that the tank is empty. To solve this issue, you will need to replace the gas tank with a new one.

Founded in 2013, our company leases and sells premium equipment such as kegerators, as well as quality products, such as kombucha, nitro cold brew, coffee, and tea. If you decide to use our equipment, your clients are guaranteed to have the most wonderful beverage experience.

If your product is not pouring properly, there may be multiple causes for this inconvenience. Firstly, if you hear some gas coming out when you pull the tap handle, but no liquid is coming out, you will have to open up the kegerator and check if the keg is empty. If this is the problem, all you have to do is replace the empty keg with a full one.

However, if the keg is not what is causing a lack of liquid, you may want to make sure that you have gas in the tank.

Similarly, if you run out of gas, you will have to replace the empty cylinder with a full one.

A Kegerator is a self-contained refrigerator designed to dispense beverages. If you have just bought your kegerator from our company, you are bound to have a wonderful experience. Also known as a draft system, a kegerator has a tower, faucets in different styles, tap handles, as well as the kegerator body, inside which there are the kegs and the gas cylinder.

These components work together to create a pleasant experience.

The draft tower can have one or multiple faucets, depending on your needs. It also has a built-in drip tray, which subsequently goes to a collection bottle or to a floor skin.

The top of the kegerator has enough space for you to deposit various items, such as cups and glasses. Inside the kegerator, there is the keg and the Co2 or nitrogen tank, which has a regulator telling you how much pressure is in the cylinder and with what pressure you are pushing the coffee out of the faucets.

The keg has a coupler, which has several slots that line up with the tabs on top of the keg. To get the coupler out of the keg, you will either have to push it down or pull it out. Another important aspect you need to know is that the temperature is preset, which means that in case of a power outage, you will not have to reset it.

The kegerator also has a fan in the back which helps maintain the proper temperature. All you have to do to maintain the kegerator is wipe down all the surfaces on a daily basis, as the rest is taken care of by itself. Every month, our team will visit you to help you properly maintain your kegerator.

If the tap handle is taken off for some reason, you may want to reinstall it. You will first have to thread it back up, a process that should go very easily.

Afterward, you will need to handle the adjusting nut. You will have to back the tap handle up until it faces forwards and subsequently take the little tensioner and snug it up to the handle. Now, the tap handle should be secured so that when you are pouring coffee, you will not encounter any issues.

However, sometimes, the tensioner nut and the handle stick to each other, which may make it hard to get the tap handle loose. In this case, you will need a wrench, with the help of which you will have to loosen the tensioner so as to break that seal on the tap handle. You will have to place the wrench around the tensioner and hold the tap handle, after which you will need to give it a turn to the tensioner to be able to break that seal.

When you put the tap handle on the equipment, sometimes it will line up properly, but the tensioner will be sticking out. Nevertheless, you will need to make sure that the tensioner has a bit of movement. To solve the problem of the tensioner sticking out, you will have to back the tap handle up one rotation to where you get the proper display and then rotate the tensioner up to the tap handle. Eventually, this will make the tap handle move a lot better.

If there is ever a power failure, the kegerator will not fail to keep the cold temperature on the inside as long as you do not open the door. When the power comes back on, the set temperature will remain preset, so that you will not have to reset it. Thereby, when the power comes back on, the kegerator will continue working properly as before. This will guarantee you a low-maintenance experience if you choose to lease or purchase a kegerator from our company.

The system has tap handles, faucets, a tower, a kegerator body, as well as internal components, which make the draft system work properly. Inside the kegerator, there are couplers, which attach to the kegs and the cold plate, which you have to be aware of, because if the product lines touch it, they may cause a freezing spot.
