Install Peace of Mind with GovReg™ Secondary Regulator System

Imagine a world without huge banks of secondary regulators mounted in a long line along a wall of your walk-in cooler, with gauges that can fail or get damaged and dials that at any time can be adjusted or re-set without your knowledge. The GovRegsystem is one that brings some peace of mind. Seamlessly insert your regulator right before your keg coupler, set at the perfect pressure that you want. Thread it on with a hex nut and let it do the rest! Here’s a look at some of the equipment to make it happen.

Secondary Regulator
Must run in-line behind a primary regulator. Never connect directly to a CO2 tank. Made of  durable stainless steel. Its patented technology accurately maintains desired pressure. Tamper-proof. Set it and forget it! Convenient design saves space. Attaches direct to 5/16″ gas line and standard threaded keg couplers without any adapter. No mounting on cooler wall, so no drilling necessary. Swift installation time saves effort and expense. High precision and lasting durability.


Starter Kit
Adjuster tool & 2 secondary regulators. Set your primary to higher pressure. Each secondary is preset to 12 p.s.i. Maximum inlet pressure 150 p.s.i.

Adjuster Tool
Adjuster tool with gauge comes with easy to read instructions. Have your primary set to higher pressure. Connect secondary regulator to open end and secure with standard hex nut. Adjust to desired pressure. 0-45 p.s.i.

Tri-Clover Fittings Are Easy to Clean and Install

Tri-clover (or tri-clamp) fittings are a 3-part clamp system. They are stainless steel sanitary fittings used in breweries, dairies, and certain other food processing industries. Their design makes them easy to clean and sanitize, are easy to use, form a great seal and seldom leak when properly installed.

Sizes include 1.5 in, 2 in, 3 in, 4 in and 6 in. for large scale operations. By connecting two equally sized hose ends with a gasket in between, and secured with a clamp, they can then be threaded tightly by hand to ensure no leaking.  Here’s a look at some typical applications:

 

Commercial Breweries & Wineries

Tri-clover fittings are perfect for moving high temperature liquids with little risk of contamination. They’re commonly used because of their versatility. The chore of connecting hoses to various vessels, fermentors, or other tanks makes connecting easier, and they can also be easily removed for rigorous cleaning, inspection and repair if needed.

 

For Homebrewing

They’re far less likely to leak & easy to clean, because they contain no “o”-rings, sharp edges, springs, internal cavities, or other nooks and crannies that can resist your cleaning efforts while trying to maintain sanitation. Other quick release fittings can harbor residual wort which may generate off flavors.

FH Steinbart Co. currently stocks EPDM gaskets, PTFE gaskets, silicone gaskets, clamps, caps, butterfly valves, beer thread connectors, ¼, 3/8, ½, ¾, & 1-inch hose barb connectors., 3/8 mnpt, 3/8 fnpt ½ mnpt, ½ fnpt, and larger for 1.5 in. size fittings.  Contact us to talk about your application.
