    You have your system set us as first-in, last-out already. I think. Doubt it matters for your system anyhow.

    The bypass regulator goes between the delivery line and return line where you now have...

    Have fun with that!

    The steel of a keg side/top is very thin. It's much easier to blow through than to get a halfway decent weld. I'd look to finding someone with a proper argon and TIG set-up and...

    I hadn't noticed that, but then, I never did the comparison. I'm more worried about CIP and foaming issues.

    It's amazing how fast the chrome plating on the brass fittings goes.

    A quick note: We've gone with all SS tavern heads, too, as the kind of corrosion shown in Linus' picture will occur from line-cleaning chemicals, leaving a rough, hard-to sanitize surface exposed to...

    Been there, done that.

    Tim: The cleaning couplers, in addition to not having PRVs, are about twice the ID of a tavern head. Most automated keg washers will see the extra back-pressure as a fault.

    Send one of the old valve seats to Brewerygaskets.com. If they can be found, those folks will find them. Good prices, too.

    Yeah, what Linus says. The solenoid valve should be located right behind the evaporator, so the wiring is right there and easy to get to. As Linus point out, compressors run on cycles, and it's not a...

    Each of our trunks splits into two lines immediately after the pump. We've never had any problems running this way for 8 years.

    This is pretty much normal for a defrost timer. While you would normally use a double-pole switch for 208, it works if you just interrupt either leg. As shown in the wiring diagram.

    That makes no sense. OP is in Georgia, USA. All taxes and sales are figured in gallons or brewer's barrels. Most of our containers are in fluid ounces. Why add confusion?

    Our HLT runs at 183-188F. No problems in over a year of using these hoses. One nice thing is that they don't have the steel wire in the casing, which tends to break out and become a hazard as the...

    I'd recommend getting the tool(s) from MicroMatic themselves. If you're using quality Sanke kegs, MicroMatic makes the valves. Be sure you also get a couple of the safety ring knives.

    No way. Just ain't happening, unless someone has sabotaged them. Even then, as mentioned, any leak between the propellant and product would be very obvious--horrible foaming at the very least.

    Very good advice there!

    For a non-fire-rated wall, I use a hole saw big enough to allow the insulated pipe to pass through with some slop, then seal with spray foam.
