Keg Cooler Maintenance

Don’t wait until your Keg Cooler breaks down to realize that you are not properly maintaining this expensive equipment. Like everything in your commercial kitchen, well-maintained equipment will outlast those that have been neglected, saving you money in the long and short run.

Cleaning Bar System… Clean draft dispensers every 2 weeks using cleaners provided by your beer provider and follow their cleaning instructions. A poorly cleaned bar system can lead to a less satisfying draft taste and look.

Cleaning Condenser Coil… Since condensers accumulate dirt, they need to be cleaned every 30 days or your warranty will become void. Use a soft brush or vacuum the condenser with a Shop-Vac or pressurized air to remove dirt, grease, and lint. To avoid injury eye protection is recommended.

Prevent Rust on Stainless Steel Units… Never use abrasive pads, hydrochloric acid or chlorinated cleaners to clean stainless steel components. Many manufacturers recommend that you use soap, ammonia, or any good commercial detergent to remove grease, oil, and routine cleaning.  Clean along polish lines using a plastic scouring pad or soft cloth. Always rinse and allow to air dry so that oxygen to maintain the passivity film.

Clean Door Gaskets… Ensure a proper sealing when you close the Keg Coolers door to prevent spoiling. Wipe door gaskets daily and remove any debris or spills.

Clean Faucet…. This should be done weekly. Remove the faucet from the shank and clean with hot water and detergent. Rinse and reinstall.

Purge Tap Lines…  To prevent beer from backing up into hose and regulator, purge the CO2 line before tapping a new barrel. To do this, quickly open and close the regulator outlet valve to allow a surge of gas to travel through the line and tap.
