Stainless Steel Tee Type Counter Pressure Bottle Filler
This Stainless Steel counter pressure filler allows you to fill bottles from a carbonated keg with minimal foaming and CO2 loss - preventing sediment in the bottle, reducing oxygen exposure & thereby increasing the shelf life of the bottled beer.
The filler includes a three-way valve at the top to connect your CO2 line from the regulator & liquid line from the keg.
Before filling bottles, beer must be below 2 deg Celsius. Pressure to be set on your regulator slightly above the equilibrium pressure of the beer when using the counter pressure filler (usually about 12-14psi).
Turn the three-way valve to the CO2 line to pressurise & put CO2 in the base of the bottle to prevent oxygen exposure to the beer. You can open the release valve for a couple of seconds to help purge air from the bottle if desired. Once the bottle is pressurized, change the valve to the liquid side which will allow the beer to flow into the bottle from the dip tube. You can then open the release valve slowly on the side of the filler to allow the beer to fill to the top. Turn the release and three-way valves off, remove the filler & cap the bottle.
The filler has 7mm barbs on the inlets and release valve to suit our 5mm & 6mm ID lines, the dip tube is 22cm and bung will suit bottles with an internal neck diameter between 14 - 20mm. The filler requires lines, clamps, gas splitter and disconnects/coupler to suit the kegs you are using.
