If you dispense Guinness or any other nitro beers in your bar, you are going to need a special kind of gas regulator for your draft beer dispensing system. This MicroMatic primary nitrogen regulator is designed for use with Guinness, stouts, ales, and some other styles of nitro beers giving you that instantly recognizable taste that’s impossible to replicate.
MicroMatic Beer Nitrogen Regulator Features
Gas regulators are an essential part of any draft beer dispensing system since they maintain the pressure within the range recommended for the style of draft beer that you’re dispensing (for nitrogen-dispensed beers, it’s typically between 30 to 40 psi).
Like all gas regulators do, this high pressure double gauge primary regulator from MicroMatic helps to control the pressure of the gas coming out of the tank - although, in this case, it’s nitrogen rather than the more common CO2. Another notable difference from CO2 regulators is that this model uses a female stem to attach to a nitrogen tank.
This particular MicroMatic nitrogen regulator model is dual-gauge, which means it features two separate gauges:
- the main gauge (which is on top) measures the dispensing pressure
- the auxiliary gauge (which is one the side) measures the amount of gas that’s left in the tank
This is more convenient than having just a single gauge, especially if you run a bar or pub and don’t want to keep your patrons waiting for their Guinness while you’re changing tanks.
