What To Do Before A Installing Keg Cooler

True TDD-4-S Stainless Steel Direct Draw Keg Cooler | 4 Keg Capacity

Always read the Operations Manual of your Keg Cooler before installing the unit. Small errors can lead to not only a ruined unit, but also a voided warranty. Below are a list of tips from True, Turbo Air, and Beverage-Air that should be reviewed before plugging in your Keg Cooler.

Before Installing… Use a volmeter to make sure your establishments electrical voltage will support the Keg Cooler. If anything less than 100% of the rated voltage for operation is noted, correct prior to hooking up the unit. Compressor warranties are void if compressor burns out due to low voltage.

Before Loading…. We recommend you run your unit empty for two to three days to ensure electrical wiring and installation are correct and no shipping damage has occurred. Most manufacturer warranties will not cover product loss.

Before Tapping… Ensure that all beer faucet in the serving location are in the off position. Completely remove the dust cover/ identification cap from the keg.

Electrical Precautions… If you’ve unplugged your Keg Cooler, wait 5 minutes before restarting the unit. Never plug a Keg Cooler into a breaker with other units or use an extension cord.

Helpful Hints On Maintaining The Correct Pressure:

  • Know which pressurizing agent to use on which product and why.
  • Monitor your regulators to ensure applied pressure remains constant
  • Keep equipment in good repair

Keg Coolers are Energy Star Products

Energy Star

Everyone is trying to save money, while at the same time working to improve our world. That’s why many manufacturers are working hard to ensure that their products are energy efficient. ENERGY STAR labeled commercial refrigerators and freezers are more energy efficient because they are designed with components such as ECM evaporator and condenser fan motors, hot gas anti-sweat heaters, or high-efficiency compressors, which will significantly reduce energy consumption and utility bills. Compared to standard models, ENERGY STAR labeled commercial refrigerators and freezers can lead to energy savings of as much as 35 percent with a 1.3 year payback.

A Comparison of Keg Cooler Manufacturers

At Burkett’s we carry 3 of the major Commercial Keg Cooler manufacturers: True, Beverage-Air and TurboAir. While all 3 offer a superb product, there are manufactural differences in each. Knowing these differences will assist you in making the right purchasing decision.
