Product Details

Double circuit aluminum cold plate with two lines of 18 feet each of embedded 5/16" O.D. x 1/4" I.D. stainless steel tubing for maximum cooling efficiency. Specifically designed for the correct resistance in a beer system: 18' of 1/4" stainless steel tubing equals roughly 6 lbs. of resistance. The stainless interior won't corrode and is easy to keep sanitary, while the outside has a smooth, easy-to-clean finish. We recommend 2 feet of 3/8 vinyl tubing for each beer inlet and 2 feet of 3/16 vinyl tubing for each outlet to the faucets.

Fittings are not included and must be ordered separately.

In the product details, you state that the resistance of each circuit is 21.6 psi. I assume that you are basing this off the Draft Beer Quality Manual chart that lists 1/4" stainless steel tubing as providing 1.2 lbs/ft of resistance. However, that manual is referring to 1/4" OD tubing. Depending on the wall thickness of the tube that the chart is based on (most surely 0.02" or less) the resistance of the circuits in this cold plate should be closer to the 0.3-0.5 lbs/ft range, providing 5.4 - 9 psi of resistance. Am I wrong about this? I am in the process of trying to balance my portable draft system, and the difference between 9 and 21.6 is a considerable discrepancy.

Best Answer: Hi Chris,

You are correct, it looks like we did make a mistake when we listed the PSI resistance. This cold plate uses 5/16" OD tubing, and 18 feet of it. I'll see that we have the description updated.

FYI, the manufacturer recommends 2 feet of 3/16" line on the outlet, and 2 feet of 3/8" line on the inlet. They tend to have the most consistent pouring results with that length of tubing.
