These 5 Gallon Home Brew Ball Lock Beer Kegs have a permanently molded rubber bottom skirt and top handles, which not only make them easy to grasp and carry, but allows them to be easily stacked on top of one another so that you can store a lot in a small space. They're perfect for small breweries just getting started or home brewers looking to keg their beer. These Pepsi soda kegs kegs meet NSDA voluntary standards. The body is constructed of 304 grade stainless steel for supreme cleanliness and sanitation. The lid fastens tightly to the body and has a pressure release valve to easily depressurize the keg. Working pressure must not exceed 130 P.S.I.G.
The tank is created by assembling the upper part (handle top), the lower part (rubber bottom), and the shell (calendared ferrule). The different metallic parts are assembled using round and longitudinal welding. All of the welds are automatically made following the TIG system in an inert atmosphere without any deposit of material. On top of the tank there is an oval opening (the mouth) that allows the tank to be closed using the lid. On the bottom of the tank there is a sump to enhance the draining off. Printed on the stainless steel exterior surface of the body there is information about the tank capacity, its identification numbers, and the manufacturer. The lid is made of stainless steel and features 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 fulfills ASTM A240 specifications. All interior surfaces are smooth to prevent any possible dirt or contaminants from remaining inside after the keg has been washed and sterilized. Stainless steel does not react to magnetic attraction and its color does not change due to cleaning or sterilization. The body has a thickness of 0.70 mm.
The upper part of the tank is equipped with one liquid plug and one gas plug to allow for a quick disconnect from the draft dispense system. 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 through which the gas tube and the liquid tube are inserted into the tank and on top of which the plugs are fixed.
Both the top and the bottom of the tank are covered with black hot vulcanized natural rubber bonded onto the steel. Two handles in the top offer easy handling. Four openings in the bottom skirt enhance the drain of water when the keg is upside down. The maximum outside diameter on the rubber parts is larger than the outside diameter of the body, allowing the keg to be rolled and minimizing damage by impact.
