If your system utilizes gas, follow these steps to check the levels and pressure.
Gas Gauge Readings
For systems that utilize gas for beer or carbonated beverages, there are three different readings to look for: (1) gas tank level, (2) tap pressure, (3) beverage pressure.
Gas Tank Level
This gauge is the one with colored sections to indicate the amount of gas in the tank.
- If the needle is in the green section, the tank is full.
- If the needle is in the red section, the gas level is low or empty.
This gauge is used for Sestra’s Model-C Touchless Taps.
- These are standard gauges and generally should be steady at 50PSI.
Certain kegs dispense beverages using pressure from gas that pushes the beverage up the lines, to the taps and into your glass.
- The physical gauge is the same type as the Tap Pressure gauge.
- The reading will vary based on beverage type and the length of the beverage line.
- Sestra can clarify what your Beverage Pressure should be.
Spot the Difference: The Tap and Beverage Pressure Gauges are labeled by stickers to avoid confusion.
Changing Pressure Settings: These pressures should never be adjusted without the recommendation from a Sestra Support Representative.
