TECHNICAL TIPS
Keg and Valve Maintenance and Repair Standards

Mark Carpenter. Franke Beverage Systems, Inc., LaVergne, TN, U.S.A.

Abstract
Qualified keg repair achieves the following benefits: 1) Mitigates safety risks for the public and brewery employees. 2) Extends the life of a brewery’s existing float and reduces future keg needs. 3) Ensures that the keg is “fit for fill” and will not damage keg processing equipment. 4) Eliminates costly returns of defective kegs from wholesalers or retailers for defective kegs. 5) Reduces risk of “off taste” product.
