An essential shelf-item for keg maintenance. Use these o-rings to get those “out-of-service” kegs back to work fast! Other essentials include removal tools, replacement spiral lock-rings and ‘ready to install’ back-up valves as well. Most keg valves in the USA are manufactured by Micromatic. To choose the correct O’ring for your keg valve, first determine if you have ‘drop-in’, threaded, or camber-(twist) type valves.
- Threaded type valves screw into the neck to install them. At the base of the valve is a lathe-cut (flat) gasket. This gasket may be different for specific threaded valve designs. Look for ‘Keg Valve – Gaskets’ . . . also available on this website.
- Drop-in style valves are installed by “dropping” the valve into the key-way notches located near the upper edge of the keg neck. Once in place a stainless, spiral, two-layer thick, retaining ring is installed into the upper groove of the keg neck. This holds the valve in position and prevents tampering. Drop-in style Micromatic valves require the specific o-ring found on this page.
- Camber-style valves are installed by twisting them into the neck (similar to the bayonet mount style of a camera lens ). Then a single-layer, stainless retaining ring is installed into the upper groove of the keg neck to hold the valve in position. Like the drop-in valve, use the o-ring described and available on this page.
Only drop-in or camber type valves use o-rings.
Drop-in style Micromatic valves along with Camber style Micromatic valves use O’Rings with the code #112-689.
You will receive a package of fifty (50) o-rings. The color of the o’ring may vary per current Micromatic specification.
