Description
 
These are 24" long offcuts of either 4mm or 5mm ID and if these lengths work out for your kegerator, great.... super cheap.

  • The barrier prevents oxygen from ingressing into your lines. Believe it or not, most widely used beverage and gas tubing does NOT stop ambient oxygen from migrating into your kegging system. Quality nerds have even been known to disconnect their lines from kegs in between pours to keep oxygen from migrating into the keg.
  • The tubing can make use of the very simple push to fit connectors such as John Guest and DuoTight. This is a major time saver for initial builds and subsequent maintenance.
  • Much cheaper than all other so-called premium tubing.
  • 4mm super slick barrier keeps oxygen out.
  • 8mm OD semi-rigid exterior is compact and easy to route in your kegerator.


As mentioned, we REALLY like using the push-fit connectors for this tubing. We stock fittings to thread onto the black ball lock QD (pushFFL) and to thread on the back of a faucet shank (pushSHANK). The picture below shows the application. THIS item does NOT include any connectors. It is just the tubing. Note that we offer a kit will all the items shown in the picture.


If you must terminate the tubing on a hose barb, such in the case of a tower shank, it is possible. For 3/16 barbs, simply dip the end of the tubing in very hot water for a few seconds and push it on. To get it over a 1/4" barb, you can dip the end of the tubing in hot water (not boiling) for 1 minute and flare the open end with a Vaseline-lubricated tapered object (such as small needle nose pliers or a pen cap, etc). Care must be taken to avoid damaging the thin liner. We would be happy to pre-flare one of the ends for attachment to a 1/4" hose barb tower shank for you if you prefer. Simply comment during checkout.

GAS:
We talked about using this tubing for CO2 gas connections as well. Here's how to set that up. Assuming you are running more than one keg, you can split gas from a single regulator output using a manifold. The benefit is that each output has its own shutoff valve. Since each of those valves is a 1/4" MFL output, you'll simply thread a PUSHFFL adapter onto each valve (as well as the grey QDs on the other end) and push the tubing in. The other option for splitting gas to multiple kegs is to use tees, specifically PushTee at any point you want to branch off. While cost is one of the savings using this method, it also allows for a very neat distribution of gas in kegerators with a lot of kegs. In other words, you can run a single line over to a grouping of say 3 kegs and split the gas right in the middle of those three instead of running three lines over to them. The only possible downside is that all your grey QDs will be pressurized whether they are connected to a keg or not (small chance of leaks).
