Pick up this Flow Control Ball Lock Disconnect and stop banging your head against the wall trying to balance your draft line. We’re all after the same thing — the perfect pour — but balancing beer lines can be a daunting task. You do the research and crunch the numbers, choose the right inner diameter line, cut it to the ideal length, only to spend your evenings dialing your regulator setting back and forth like a turtle-necked safecracker. This stainless steel flow control disconnect will eliminate the guess work and fast track you to perfectly pouring beer.
Flow control faucets are a popular option but they’re inherently flawed due to the point of restriction being at the very end of the beer line. The flow control apparatus inside the faucet causes turbulence, which leads to foaming and carbonation coming out of solution prematurely. Flow control disconnects on the other hand have the ability to restrict the flow before the beer enters the beer line so the head pressure created by the beer line keeps the carbonation in solution.
Another advantage of FC disconnects is that you don’t have to rely on a small inner diameter or long line length to apply flow resistance. In fact, even in the fully open position, the disconnect will provide some inherent flow resistance, so you should use a shorter line than the 5-6 ft. length that is typically recommended. This makes the flow control disconnect ideal for dispensing beer on the go where you might have a picnic tap with a short line or a disconnect faucet adapter with no line at all!
These ball lock QDs are made from stainless steel. Beyond that they also have a unique feature that allows you to change the resistance that the QD is exerting on your beer. That means you can dial in flow right at the QD. That allows you to make modifications for lower or higher carbonation levels without changing tubing lengths.
