Comparing Brewing Regulators: Low-Pressure Vs. CO2

Posted by Beer Grains Supply Co. on

One of the most necessary tools a brewer can have is a regulator because we need a way to get our beer out of the keg and into our cup. Stat! In our collection of Canadian beer brewing supplies, we have two different regulators: Low-Pressure and CO 2. While both of them get the job done well, there are advantages that make each fit for certain brewing situations. Which regulator is right for you?

Taprite Low-Pressure Regulator

Designed specifically for home brewers, the low-pressure regulator is a one-pressure, one-product regulator that allows you to monitor both the CO2 and output pressure. A low-pressure regulator is designed to keep you safe as you regulate the flow of gas through the system. It is intended to work with small batches not exceeding 10 gallons at a time. When compared to a high-pressure regulator, low-pressure regulators are known for keeping the tank from freezing while still emitting plenty of BTUs. Moreover, this Taprite regulator is made out of durable brass, which makes it less susceptible to corrosion.

Like the low-pressure regulator, the Primary CO2 is a one-pressure, one-product regulator to monitor both output pressure and CO2 simultaneously. The main difference is this regulator is great for commercial uses with a high volume of beer flowing through the pipes. As you quickly change through kegs, you can rest assured that this regulator will read accurately. It is easy to adjust the polycarbonate bonnet after changing the kegs or CO2 tanks. Like the low-pressure regulator, this model is also made of brass for durable and corrosion-resistant product.
