These great value re-usable plastic kegs are the best way to store your home brew in a smaller sized container than traditional 19L corny kegs. The small 8 litre size is convenient, light weight and perfect for sharing beverages with friends.
The 8L keg is light weight, compact and has high oxygen barrier properties with 3x better (less) gas transmission than traditional PET grades of plastic making it suitable for beer storage or other oxygen sensitive carbonated and non-carbonated beverages.
What is Oxebar Mono
Oxebar Mono is a PET polymer blend that utilises several polymers blended together to significantly improve gas barrier properties. When compared with standard PET plastic Oxebar Mono is able to reduce oxygen ingress and CO2 loss so your precious beverage is preserved and shelf life extended by x3.
We recommend this product for beer stored in keg up to 6 months.
During normal everyday use Do not Exceed 4 Bar / 58psi or 45°C
Periodic Hydrotesting Requirement
All pressure vessels should be hydrotested periodically. This is a very simple process and it’s nothing to be feared.
We recommend that this container be pressure tested every 2 years up to 6 bar.
The instructions for this are:
1. Remove RED prv and fit GREY prv (you can borrow one of these from a 19L keg).
2. Fill keg to the absolute brim with water. DO NOT forget this step.
3. Use bike pump, CO2 regulator, air compressor or any other pressure source to pressurize the keg to 6 bar.
4. Hold the keg at 6 bar for 1 minute
5. Release the pressure and immediately remove GREY prv and swap back to RED prv.
Note: This test should be done with the keg and water in the keg at room temperature 15-30C
