    Where did you source your valves and how are they holding up? We unfortunately have a Colorado Brew washer and are looking to redesign it which requires upgrading the valves to SS with better seals. The viton isn't great for caustic cleaners.

    Different people. In the original videos, which were put up long after Noble Keg washer was a thing, showed this guy with a simpler home made washer setup that he used for cleaning kegs for his cold brew coffee. I think his coffee brand was called Noble?

    This project is dead. let it rest in peace.

    Also, as someone who looked into the Noble Keg Washer (now The Keg Washer) at one point, stay very far away. In addition to the online reviews, I also talked to a brewery that we know a few counties over and he really regrets getting one.

    We ended up importing one based on the recommendation of another local brewery and have been very pleased. Well, except for the tariff hike some idiot put into place because he doesn't understand economics... smh.

    Now... to unsubscribe from this thread...

    Interested

    Hi I am interested in this if this is still a valid post and if it will work hooked up to an artisan keg washer?

    Interested.

    How can we get the source code from you?

    Pumps like crazy, and had been good so far.....

    I'm guessing that wayne pump would be OK for moving starsan or rinse water???

    I am looking for a keg washer pump and saw this thread. How is this pump working for you? Strong enough for two kegs at at time?

    Thanks!

    New to this thread but if either of you needs any help with design, let me know. I'm almost done building mine. I programmed an Ace PLC & HMI connected via Modbus, relay controlled pneumatic valves, and all kinds of bells & whistles. Sourced most of the stainless through China. I included the post that has pictures.

    That would be great.

    I'm sure I don't speak just for myself when I say that semi-automated keg washer is on my DIY list, and automation is most complex part, so code and info about using it would help a lot.

    I've actually picked up the Arduino code from where it was developed over on the Arduino forums and have been slowly working on it for a slightly simpler design, which uses only one wash tank (I plan on running Acid 6 or another CO2 friendly cleaner) and just blows out the kegs with CO2, rather than doing an air purge. I'm building up the hardware for it at the moment to see if it gets beyond the current Proof of Concept stage, but once its actually trialled and working with kegs and liquid I'll share the code and the liquid schematic.

    So far I'm about $400 of parts in, which is all stainless steel Ts and fittings for the liquid paths for a two head washer, the Arduino and associated electronics, a waterproof enclosure and all the motorized ball valves, and I expect to spend another $250 or so for the cleaner tank and fittings, wiring and a cart for it all to sit on.

    Thanks for your willingness to help, though!

    I'm pretty sure this is a dead thread at this point. The OP hasn't updated in quite a while.

    The idea was nice, but there's been no followup in a long while despite the community response. Not condemning Noble, just assuming that business has picked up past the point of being able to follow up on this side-project. Seriously, good for them!
