These 5 Gallon Stainless Steel Ball Lock Kegs (aka Pepsi Kegs or Cornelius Kegs) have a permanently molded rubber bottom skirt and a durable stainless steel strap handle. The ball-lock fittings are easy to access making cleaning very easy. These ball lock kegs meet NSDA voluntary standards and are NSF approved (National Sanitation Foundation). They are an excellent choice for storing and serving kombucha, soda or wine in addition to home brewed beer. The stainless steel lid fastens tightly to the body and has a pull ring style pressure release valve to easily depressurize the keg. Working pressure must not exceed 130 P.S.I.G.

RackTanks is carried out by assembling : upper part (handle top), lower part (rubber bottom) and shell (calendared ferrule). The assembling of the different metallic parts is made by round and longitudinal welding. All welding on the tank are automatically made, following TIG system in a inert atmosphere without any deposit of material. On top of the tank, there is an oval opening (mouth) which allow the closing of the tank by the lid. On the bottom there is a sump to enhance the draining off. Printed on the stainless steel of the external surface of the body, there are information about the capacity of the tank, its identification numbers and the manufacturer. The lid is made of stainless steel, is finished with handle, and has a pull ring relief valve.

The tank model "NC" is made of AISI type 304 stainless steel (1.4301) with No. 2B mill finish steel sheet which fulfils ASTM A240 specification. All inside surfaces are smooth to prevent any possible dirt or contamination from remaining inside after washing and sterilizing. Stainless steel does not react to magnetic attraction and it's color does not change due to cleaning or sterilizing. The top and the bottom are deep-drowned beginning from a stainless steel disk with a thickness of 1mm before the pressing. The body has a thickness of 0,70 mm.

To allow quick disconnect with the draft beer system, on its upper part the tank is equipped with one liquid plug and one gas plug. The gas plug has an incision on the hexagon and the liquid plug does not have an incision on the hexagon. They are both clearly marked by a stencil.

On the top part of the tank there are two welded stems, trough which the gas tube and the liquid tube are putted inside the tank, and top which the plugs are fixed.

The bottom of the tank is covered with black hot vulcanised natural rubber bonded onto the steel. One stainless steel handle on the top offers easy handling. Four openings in the bottom skirt enhance the drain of water when the keg is upside down. The maximum outside diameter of the rubber part is larger than the one of the body. In this way any damage by impact is minimized and the keg can be rolled.

Very Nice Ball Lock Keg
by:Home brewer (10-09-2014)
cheyenne, WY
Comments:I was wary at first especially for the price, but these will be the last kegs you'll buy!! very solid construction. I recommend buying these new rather than the reconditioned soda kegs. I upgraded all my used kegs to these and all of my beer has improved Quality. Buy in bulk for a better price.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Very pleased
by:Josh (03-18-2014)

Comments:These are beautiful kegs. I am very happy with the purchase.

I will second many reviews here that the packaging is poor, but I had no visible wear on any of the kegs.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Solidly Built Kegs
by:John from Cincinnati (03-12-2014)
Denver Springs, RI
Comments:Only 3 stars because the threads on the Gas side of one of the kegs were all gnarled. It still holds pressure, it's just a lot of work to get on and off. Beverage Factory offers no warranty on it and I can't find any info from Kegco directly, so i'm stuck with it as is.

The other keg works great and my results are probably not typical.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Great Product
by:Brandon (03-11-2014)
Comments:I have three of these kegs and they work well. They seal great and easy to clean what more do you need. Third one showed up at the house with a dented handle. Emailed BF and they sent a new one. No big deal.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
