We have some PBST kegs with their Chinese spears/valves in our fleet and we've been having a problem with some kegs not draining properly on our keg washer. They fill with water or caustic but won't drain. We've replaced some of these faulty spears with Micromatic spears and they all work perfectly.

Just curious if anyone else has run into issues like this with these kegs, or maybe has a fix for the bad spears other than a replacement with a micromatic.

I have a bucket full of Mircomatic spears salvaged from trashed kegs. Let me know if you're interested. All are in good shape, usable, might need new gaskets.

Most Chinese spear have issues with the O rings.
Some can be interchangeable with the MicroMatic ones.

If you email me some photos I can see if my manufacturers can figure that out for you,

Curious to how they helped you out and if the replacement spears worked out for the cost?

Thanks!
