Description

If you want an easy way to balance your beer lines, this is the way to do it. One of the benefits of Flow Control disconnects is you don't need to rely on the small ID or line length to apply flow resistance. Rather than adjusting your line length or size, simply apply additional restriction directly on the Quick Disconnect (QD). This is perfect for people who want to serve a large range of beverages with differing carbonation levels without having to customize each line. Now with the added benefit of Duotight fittings built in.

Please be aware that even in the fully open position these FC disconnects do have some inherent flow resistance so you should use either shorter line or larger ID line that you would when compared with traditional ball lock disconnects. 

The humble plastic ball lock disconnect has been around a long time and is used by countless homebrewers around the world.  Despite the extensive use they have seen little to no innovation for decades and KegLand wanted to change this. Enter the Duotight Ball Lock QD. The integrated Duotight design means you can connect your beer and gas line directly, easily and reliably with no need for additional fittings or clamps. It is a robust and super compact design that is incredibly easy to assemble and disassemble, making cleaning and sanitizing an absolute breeze!

Made from highly chemical resistant materials with stainless springs and ball bearings (no cheap ABS plastics here) this baby is extremely resistant to commonly used chemicals such as phosphoric based sanitizers and caustics. The incredibly small form factor allows for easy stacking of kegs. The new cap design ensures a pressure seal with just hand tightening and it can be completely taken apart for cleaning with no tools required.

Features:

  • Ball Lock Quick Disconnect - Bev Out
  • Adjustable flow rate
  • Direct connect EVABarrier tubing
  • Compact design won't interfere with keg stacking
  • Made from highly chemical resistant materials
  • Dissamble by hand for quick and easy cleaning

The description indicates "you should use either shorter line or larger ID line that you would when compared with traditional ball lock disconnects." Any recommendations regarding specific length of line and ID combinations?
Jeffrey Hewit on Aug 24, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Actually, the description says you "don't need to rely on the small ID or line length." That's the whole point of flow control. With these disconnects, you should be able to use whatever line length you want, and just adjust the flow control to restrict the rate of flow, as needed. As far as ID goes, these only work with 8 mm line.

Great!
These are great for bottling for the tap. No reason to change the
gas pressure, just create a slow pour and bottle away.
