Building a beer dispensing system can be tricky. There are many components required to get beer from a keg all the way to your beer tower or faucet, and into your customer's glass. A keg coupling washer is one important piece of this complex system.
Rubber Coupling Washers Prevent Leaks in your Beer Dispensing System
Once tapped with a keg coupler, beer travels from your keg through a piece of beer line tubing, also called a beer hose. This tubing is custom cut to the desired length you need, depending on how far away your keg is from the beer faucet where your beer will be dispensed. By means of a hose nipple and beer faucet shank assembly, this beer line connects to your faucet so beer can be served by pulling down on the tap handle.
Since the beer has a long way to travel and flows through many components, it is important that all the parts and fittings of your beer line system fit together tightly so no beer is leaked out along the way. One highly susceptible place for beer leakage is actually at the top of your keg coupler. This is where a coupler washer comes into play. This neoprene washer is placed in the next nut or wing nut fitting between the keg coupler and your beer line, or in your beer line jumper. It serves as a gasket to stop any beer from leaking out the top of the keg coupler. This beer industry standard washer fits inside the hex nut or wing nut fittings on your beer hose to create a leak free connection from your beer line to your coupler. These rubber gaskets can also be used to on the other end of your dispensing system to connect beer nuts & tail pieces to a faucet shank or keg tap.
Other connections which these rubber o-rings can seal include wall brackets. Any place where beer hardware is being connected and traveling through tubing or co2 gas lines, a tight seal is needed and one of these neoprene beer washers should be used to insure there are no leaks and precious beer is not wasted.
Buy Neoprene Coupler Washers in Bulk and Save
Although these coupling gaskets are made of liquid resistant, durable neoprene, we recommend keeping a good supply on hand so you can change them regularly, keeping your seals as tight as possible. Some bar and restaurant owners like to change their rubber washers every time they clean their beer lines, as part of their regular beer system maintenance process.
These keg coupling washers are sold as individual units, but they are boxed 25 to a case. So if you are looking to buy these rubber washers in bulk, we recommend purchasing in increments of 25, so we can send you a complete box. Plus, if you buy at least 25 beer washers you will receive a discount.
Application: for use with hex nut or wing nut fittings on keg couplers, beer lines, faucet shanks, co2 lines, wall brackets and more.
