This stainless steel manual keg washer with high-performance CIP spray ball provides an economical way to effectively clean kegs.
The washer can stand alone (with external water source) or be set inside a vessel such as a BREWHA fermenter and the hose connected to the inside using the 1.5" tri-clamp connecting arm. (The Large Cleaner fits in the Large fermenter and the Medium Cleaner in the Medium fermenter; either will fit inside the 120L Mash Tun and a heater and controller used to heat the water) Once spears are pulled, kegs can be inverted and dropped down onto the cleaner.
The Basic Kit just comes with a short 3/4" hose to connect the Return Arm to the Cleaner. The Complete Kit also includes an approximately 2' section of 1" hose for pump return water to connect a tank to a pump, and an approximately 2' section of 3/4" hose to connect the pump outflow to the Return Arm.
When cleaning multiple kegs, it is simplest to first rinse them all by connecting the Keg Cleaner to tap water (the bottom fermenter port should have a hose ran to a drain). Once all kegs are rinsed, then the fermenter cone can be filled with water, the water heated close to boiling, and a pump connected to recirculate and heat sanitize the kegs with the hot water. (Or, if desired, an alkaline or acidic wash can be circulated through the kegs, the kegs rinsed, and a sanitizer added for the final cycle.) The based diameter is 43cm/17" (Large) and 37cm/15" (Medium), the total height is 62cm/24.5" (Large and Medium) and the distance from the platform to top of the ball is 37cm/14.5".
Note: this cleaner works best with a powerful pump such as our 1hp March 7S which can be purchased here. Smaller powered pumps might not generate sufficient force for thorough mechanical cleaning. (If a powerful pump is not available, high-pressured municipal water supply can be used for the mechanical cleaning and then a lower powered pump for the hot water sanitizing).
Note: when cleaning with a BREWHA fermenter, it is recommended to feed the pump with water from the side of the vessel (rather than bottom) to minimize fouling in the spray ball.Learn: How to clean kegs with the BREWHA Keg Washer
