$59.99

In stock and ready to ship.

Made of high-strength, durable aluminum, this 5 lb. CO2 tank delivers dependable performance for up to 8 half kegs per fill.


    Overview

    Pressurized gas is a key component on any draft beer system. This dependable 5 lb. aluminum CO2 air tank provides the right amount of pressure to your gas lines.

    Made of high-strength aluminum alloy, this CO2 air tank is lighter than steel and will not rust. Measuring 18 inches tall and 5.25 inches wide, the tank has a capacity of 5 lb. of CO2, which will last for roughly 6-8 half kegs. When in use, the tank must be in a fully upright position, so do not tilt or lay it on its side.

    The body of the canister has a brushed finish and the dome is unpainted. It comes with a CGA 320 valve. The tank is stamped with required U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Transport Canada (TC) Markings.

    Due to Federal regulations, your aluminum gas tank will be shipped empty. To fill with CO2 before you hook up your draft system, check your local listings under “Gas,” or try local fire extinguisher supply or welding supply companies.

    If you have a multi-tap system, you can buy your 5 lb. CO2 tanks in bulk for extra savings.

    Where was this tank manufactured?
    John G on Oct 16, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Hi John! Thank you for your question.

    We source our CO2 tanks from multiple manufacturers based on availability. Our manufacturers have plants all over the world, so depending on when you place your order you may receive a tank made in USA, China, or another country. When you're ready to place your order, you can call our Customer Care department at 877-636-3673 and they can confirm what we have available at that time.

    Cheers!
    How many gallons of beer will a 5LB CO2 tank dispense?
    Mike O on Jul 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Mike, a 5lb CO2 tank will last for about 6-8 Half Kegs. A Half Keg holds 15.5 gallons, so you should be able to dispense 93-124 gallons per tank. Cheers!
    We have a kegerator from a bar. The air line was run to the outside for a 20lb tank and that is where we put our 5 lb. tank. My friend was told by a beer distributor to put his inside his kererator. Which is right or the best?
    patricia a on Aug 1, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I think inside is better. The tank, air and line will reach the same temperature as the keg and no additional heat will be introduced inside the kegerator. With the tank outside it will be at the room ambient temperature. Since your line and air will penetrate the liner of the kegerator, an unnecessary heat path will be introduced into the kegerator. This added heat will cause the refrigeration system to run more. Now how much more energy will be used and how much added cost I can't say, it could be pretty small, but given the choice between tank inside or outside I would always choose inside.
    How to identify that the tank is certified? Label or engraved marking?
    Tyler S on Aug 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: All tanks should have the month and year that it was last hydro tested. It usually consists of a stamp in the metal with 2 numbers, a symbol, followed by 2 numbers. 03@14 for example. March 2014. CO2 tanks for to be tested every 5 years. So March 2019 in this example. Hope this helps. Mike from Lakeland's Beer Revolution.

    BEST ANSWER: JayJay,

    This CO² tank is a non dip tube tank.
    Bought this with the Economy Single Gauge CO2 Regulator (ITEM # JO-60K). What size o-ring is needed as one did not come with the tank or regulator?
    A shopper on Jun 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The part you need is a nylon washer. I have attached the item here for your reference.

    Dose the co2 tank work both styles of co2 regulators (i.e. Rubber o-ring/taprite vs. nylon/plastic washer)?
    Kyle R on Apr 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes
    What is the date stamped on to the tank? My co2 dealer says there is a time limit before the tank has to be recertified.
    A shopper on Mar 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Our CO2 tanks are sold brand new and they are certified for 5 years from the date stamped. Our current inventory is dated 09/15. That date is subject to change depending on when you order. Cheers!
    I possibly need 15-20 of these. Do you offer any price breaks on large quantities?
    Dean P on Feb 18, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Dean!

    We do offer a price break on quantities of 10 or more. They would come out to $58.49 each, which is a 4% savings.

    Cheers!
