Carbon dioxide tanks have many uses that we often take for granted. They keep beer, ice cream and soft drinks cold, power dragsters, provide pressure for paintball guns and make carbonated water at home. CO2 has numerous commercial uses in cleaning and is even used for growing plants.
CO2 cylinders do more than just store the gas for you. CO2 has three phases — solid, liquid and gas depending on temperature and pressure. When you use your CO2 tank, the gas shoots out leaving liquid behind. The pressure in your tank drops and the tank will get ice cold. But, that’s OK as the heat in the air around the cartridge will start warming the tank and the CO2 turns back into gas and will be ready for the next time you need to use the CO2.
So, how do you know when it’s time to refill your CO2 tank? Of course, you can bring it into All Florida Fire Equipment, and we’ll check it out for you. However, if you’re using CO2 to keep your draft beer taps flowing, you don’t want to take a chance of running out in the middle of a party.
The best option is to install a double gauge regulator on your tank. A double gauge regulator tells you how much pressure is available in the tank – between 0-60 PSI (pounds per square inch) and how much CO2 is left in your tank. If you need to add a double gauge regulator to your tank, then you’re in luck because All Florida Fire Equipment Company has them in stock.
If you are using your CO2 tank to dispense beer, you don’t want to run the risk of losing pressure in the middle of an event. If you have a 5 pound CO2 tank, you can dispense 2 to 4 full-size beer kegs before needing to refill. Most U.S. breweries recommend a CO2 pressure of between 12-14 PSI. A setting outside of this range can cause your beer to become either over or under carbonated. If the beer is foamy, then your CO2 pressure is set too high, and you should adjust the regulator to lower the pressure. On the other hand, if your beer is flat then that’s a sign of the CO2 pressure being too low, so you adjust the regulator to increase the pressure.
