Keg Specifications and Details

In side by side tests, our kegs have outperformed major European keg manufacturers in key keg quality tests.  

Our kegs are produced in an ISO 9001 Certified manufacturing facility to assure you receive the highest quality kegs possible.  Here is a short summary of the testing done on each lot of kegs.  Contact us for an example test report.

Keg Inspection and Testing Procedure (brief summary)

Pressure Test:

  • Keep the keg under 6.3 bar pressure for 1 minute, the body shall not twist.
  • Keep the keg under 10 bar pressure for 1 minute, the body’s twist shall be ≤50ml.
  • Destruction test: pressure ≥75 bar; keg twist is allowed when struck by a hydraulic machine


Drop Test:

  • 50°drop test: Kegs shall be filled with cold water (not less than 99.5%), and then be dropped from 4 feet (1.2 meters) using slings at correct angle (50°) with a quick release mechanism for 3 times onto a 1 inch (25mm) steel plate on the ground.
  • 90°drop testing; Kegs shall be filled with cold water (not less than 99.5%), and then be dropped from 4 feet (1.2 meters) using slings at correct angle (90°) with a quick release mechanism for 3 times onto a 1 inch (25mm) steel plate on the ground.

Burst Test: Add a burst disc under the bottom, and increase the pressure up to 40 ± 10 bar. The burst disc is allowed to break, but no more breakage anywhere else.

Color labeling testing: 24 hours after spray-paint is applied, wash the applied part with 60-70? water, and flush 1 minutes with cool water, repeat for 10 times. The color label shall remain the same.

Requirement for spear assembly: Test the spear in water to check if the sealing is ok, then screw down spear with a force of 7 – 8 kpm (70 – 80Nm).
