The procedure of filling of the keg using the filling head :

  1. Sterilize both the coupler and the filling connector on the keg using some sanitizing solution with alcohol.
  2. Connect the filling head using the bottom connector onto the keg.
  3. Close the valves No 1 and 3.
  4. Open the valve No 2 and fill pressure CO2 gas into the keg. We recommend to set the pressure in the keg lower than is the pressure in the source tank.
  5. Check the pressure on manometer during the filling process.
  6. Close the valve No 2 when you reach the target pressure in the keg.
  7. Open the valve for beverage input No 1. At the same time slightly open the valve No 3 and let release the CO2 out from the keg. The pressure in the keg rises during the filling.
  8. Slowly open the valve No 3. When the beverage with foam leaks out then the keg is full.
  9. Close all valves at this moment and disconnect the coupler from the keg. The keg is full now.
  10. Disconnect the filling head from the keg.

Filling of the 50-liters keg takes from 1 up to 4 minutes – the time depends on the chosen overpressure and beer type.
