Transfer wine out of a barrel using inert gas to reduce oxidization with our Gas Transfer Tool. After using most all similar tools on the market, we took what we liked and disliked and made our own. Obviously we love the price!... but perhaps more impressive is the polished finish and the excellent quality welds. We sell it without a sight-gauge welded in or attached. We found it easier to clean without a welded in place sight-gauge. We also found that most wineries already had other sight-gauges in the winery and did not need it included. Of course it is available as an option, (sight-gauge H664, clamp H652, gasket, h656.) Replacement gaskets and parts in stock and available.  

Quality Features

  • Stainless lock down mechanism to adjust height
  • Polished stainless tube
  • Compression Silicone Bung to form airtight seal with barrel
  • Adjustable lees pin
  • Made from 304 stainless steel


    Specifications
  • 1.5" Tri-Clover Outlet
  • 1/4" Stainless Steel Ball Valve with FPT inlet for inert gas
  • 31" height from lees pin to pictured stopper
Prebook Item: Please note this item is not currently in stock, but is available for Pre-Order. We do require payment in full in order to reserve stock.

is this height adjustable to fit any size barrel? I have several 5 and 10 gallon barrels i need it for. HELP!
Francisco Ramos on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, not only does it have an adjustable lees pin at the bottom but the whole valve and bung assembly can be adjusted along the whole length of the racking cane to accommodate various size barrels.
I have several stainless kegs (old firestones) that take a #10 stopper. Any idea if the stopper will fit this sized keg?
Mark Parker on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what a #10 stopper dimensions are. The small end of this one is 1.75 inches. At the top its closer to 2.25 inches. It expands to seal the bung hole when you turn the lower screw handle right above the rubber stopper. I would say if the hole in your keg is about 2 inches this will work.
What is the recommended CO2 pressure? Looks like it has a PRV.
T I on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The PRV on this is rated to 55 psi. All of the other answers are correct that you really just need a little bit of pressure to push your product out of the barrel. Then when you're finished you can either relieve the pressure with the PRV.
How do you clean the assembly? I cannot locate an instruction manual.
T I on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I run PBW through it for 20 minutes or so: put PBW + water in the boil kettle, hook the BK outlet to the outlet of the cane and put the whole thing in the BK so the solution flows through the cane, out of the BK, back into the top of the cane and out of the bottom again.
Does this tool pressurize the tank being transferred from the top or the bottom? I’m concerned about disturbing the lees at the bottom of the tank during transfer if the gas comes out the bottom of the tool.
Shawn wichman on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use one of these in my home winery. It pressurizes from the top (where the rubber seal is) and presses liquid up from the bottom. You have to set the little screw in the bottom to lift the liquid pipe off the bottom of barrel so you don't push up lees that are on the bottom. Works great.
What is the maximum vessel depth achievable if the stopper is pushed as high as it will go? I am looking to transfer apple juice for cider from a 275 gallon IBC tote which measures about 38" from the lid to bottom of the tote. I may need to extend the tube so it reaches the bottom. If so, what is the outer diameter of the stainless tube?
Nico Chiarito on Nov 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I just measured that maximum vertical distance as about 33.5”, maybe a bit more. The outer diameter of the stainless tube is 1 7/64”, or just under an inch and an eighth, as measured with a digital caliper. Hope this helps.

Works great for transferring from a barrel at a fraction of the cost of some of the others out there.

Cheaper than and comparable to other brands
So far so good. This bad boy is the bees knees, we used it to transfer a mixed ferm that spent 19 months in the barrel, straight to the keg. The ability to remove all the soft parts is monumental in keeping peace of mind between mixed ferm and regular batches.

Great Product, Small Design Flaws, Initial Quality Problems Though
I love this machine! However, we had to do a lot of disassembly and cleaning of the machined threads to get it to work. They were completely frozen and galling up the works when we first tried to use the thing.

They should have made a bit more space to slide the collar up for good access to the threads for cleaning. The nitrogen tube is too close to the collar. Also, the silicone bung was dirty and had some marks on it like it has been used before.

All that said it really has a nice quality look and feel. We were able to flush out the threaded areas with lots of cleaner and water and soap and now everything screws together nicely.
