Description

6kg CO2 Gas Cylinder

Our 6Kg gas bottles are new and ready to use straight out of the box. With a cylinder shut-off valve this little tank can dispense up to 1000L and carbonate and dispense up to 500L of beer when used for homebrewing purposes.

We strongly suggest testing your connections prior to leaving the cylinder on.
To do this watch read below:-
Disconnect the gas side of your set up from your kegs.
Turn on the gas at the black valve
Turn the grey regulator clockwise until the low-pressure side reaches 40psi
Turn off the black valve at the top of the bottle.
Wait 2+ Hours (or leave overnight)
If the left and right pressure gauge on the regulator has dropped or is showing 0psi. Then it is safe to say you have a leak somewhere in the line. You will need to check all connections with soapy detergent water to locate the leak.
We recommend checking all clamped sections, or if you’re using push-in fittings, to ensure they’re not bending or being stretched as this will cause a micro leak.

Features:
– Australian Standard Approved
– Comes with 6.0kg of CO2
– Dimensions 76cm high x 16cm diameter
– Black carry handle grip for easy of transport and protection of valve

Refilling:
Empty cylinders can be refilled by most local homebrew stores around Australia.

These cylinders come with a 10 year approved life span. After this time for CO2 fillers to be able to fill your bottle, you will need to get it hydrostatically tested for your safety and theirs while filling it for you. This can easily be done at a local fire station or a certified gas mechanic/supplier.

Warning: Only use in the upright position. or you run the risk of breaking your regulator with liquid CO2.

Hydro Testing
Unlike some other alloy steel cylinders, the KegLand gas cylinders are made with a RPV fitting into the valve opening.  As a result our cylinders only require 10 years periodic hydro testing not 5 year like other similar cylinders.  This can be seen in the AS2030 standard here: 10 Year Periodic Testing Interval.
