Description
 
Due to the popularity of the Bevseal Ultra tubing, we've also been testing this new similar option from Keg King/ Kegland. Both are semi-rigid exterior tubes with a thin interior barrier layer.

This EVA tubing has 5mm ID which should only be used for longer runs when needed. In other words, if your unique situation is such that 11 feet of the smaller 4mm ID line won't quite make it between keg and faucet, this 5mm line will provide a faster pour at longer length. 5mm line should be used when the line length is between 12 and 18ft. This 5mm sized tubing is sold by the 13ft length with a maximum contigous piece of 39 feet (if you purchase multiples, just put a note in the checkout comments that you'd like the length left full.)

To be perfectly clear, most situations are better suited for the 4mm ID version of this tubing since you only need 5.5 feet for a nice controlled pour.


Features:

  • The super slick inner liner is completely flavor neutral. Beer can sit in these lines for days and you can start pouring a pint WITHOUT dumping a single drop.
  • 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.
  • 5mm super slick barrier keeps oxygen out.
  • 8mm OD semi-rigid exterior is compact and easy to route in your kegerator.



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).

I installed 5mm EVAbarrier for my gas lines with durotite fittings and tested with 20psi co2 for 24 hrs and did not notice a pressure drop.
