HOW TO CHANGE THE GAS ON BEER PUMPS.

ALWAYS TAKE CARE WHEN DEALING WITH PRESSURISED GAS CYLINDERS.

Changing a gas cylinder is a simple and straightforward exercise, the following steps will show you how to do this safely and correctly:

Step 1. Even though the gas pressure gauge registers empty, you should close the tap on the bottle. Turn the knob tightly on the top of the bottle towards the ‘close’ position.

Step 2. Using your spanner unscrew nut on the pipe connected to the bottle until it is removed.

Step 3. Place the empty bottle safely and securely, ready for pick up by your supplier.

Step 4. Carefully position your new gas bottle and secure it in place.

Step 5. Pull out the plastic stopper from the connection on the bottle and insert the connection from the pipe. You must make sure this is level as it is vital to have a secure connection to prevent leaks.

Step 6. Using your trusty spanner, tighten the nut on the pipe until it is secure.

Step 7. Unscrew the knob on the top of the gas bottle towards the ‘open’ direction. You will hear a hissing sound, don’t panic this is just the gas flowing into the pipe. You will also notice the pressure gauge rise to indicate full.

Step 8. Go to the bar and dispense your drinks.
