Cold Plate Jockey Boxes are designed to serve cold beer at events. The cold plate is solid aluminum with Stainless Steel 1/4" tubing running inside. Both in and out connections are stainless steel barbs. Your beer never touches anything but stainless steel while running through the cold plate. For a nominal amount more you can choose all stainless steel parts (tailpiece, shank, coupler and faucet) and have nothing but stainless and hose material every contact your beer. Cold plates are not designed to dispense a hot get (kegs should never be allowed to get hot anyway!) It is designed to take a cool keg (no warmer than 55 degrees Fahrenheit) and have it serve at around 36 to 38 degrees Fahrenheit. These work great for events or when a bar needs and additional temporary beer station for the night. The cold plate should be elevated in the cooler (We sell a rack for this or you can build your own) and it should always be covered in pure ice without water. These coolers come with a drain plug so water can be drained before reaching the cold plate. If you have a regulator and CO2 already you can use yours. We also offer optional CO2 supply with this product.
- When ordering couplers you need to also purchase the CO2 gas supply for the coupler.
- CO2 Gas Supply comes complete for Homebrew. Pick a coupler for commercial kegs. Read options carefully.
