KegLand Stainless Flow Control Ball Lock

  • Item #X79
  • Price: $24.99
  • Part #KL09041
- +

In stock, will ship on Tuesday, July 5

Now improved for 2021:

• 20% more adjustment knob range allows for finer flow control

• New softer spring for the poppet allows for both easier connection to a keg and easier knob adjustment

• New softer spring for the securing ring also eases installation and removal

• New markings on adjustment knob make it easy to know if you are increasing or decreasing flow

This all stainless fitting features a ball lock beer side connection, a ¼" male flare threaded outlet, and adjustable flow control. Perfect for making keg mounted faucets where you do not have 4' of 3/16" interior diameter tubing to reduce foaming. Adjust the flow when it leaves the keg!

If you want to make a ball lock keg faucet, you will need to purchase this connector, plus our items I26 Faucet Adapter, X85 Nukatap Faucet, D87 Concave Washer, and a tap handle of your choice.  This disconnect is 3" tall.

Note: Due to variances in machining, these vary a bit as far as how much flow they constrict at a given turn of the knob. So if you have more than one, one may require a different amount of knob turning to achieve the same flow constricting result.  Also, these have a bit more restriction than normal wide open ball lock disconnects even when they are fully open, something to keep in mind.

These fit modern kegs only: If you have older USA made ball lock kegs, you will find this ball lock fitting does not fit as it is machined a bit tighter than the old standard. These fit KegLand, AEB, Old Ale,Torpedo, and other modern kegs, BUT DO NOT FIT OLDER CORNELIUS, SPARTANBURG, FIRESTONE, ALLOY PRODUCTS, AND OTHER OLD UNBRANDED KEGS.

Must Have

Review by David K on 5/17/2022

Best for high carb mixed drinks in a keg. Adjust for a smoth flow from tap to glass.

Problems attaching?

Review by brian on 11/18/2021

I'm surprised there are no reviews on how impossible it is to get this attached to a keg. Tried 3 different ball locks and can't get it seated even with almost all my weight on it. William's Responds: This fits KegLand and other modern kegs, but can be a tight fit with some older models.

Very impress

Review by Allan on 11/18/2021

I was just gone through the first keg with this thing. It works well. I was pushing the beer out at 15 psi and have zero issues with foaming.

Restricts flow, allows for high carbonation.

Review by Makas on 6/18/2020

I've been fermenting cider for about a year now and started kegging about 6 months ago. With a picnic tap, I wasn't able to get anywhere near the carbonation level I wanted without losing most of it to foam and waiting for that foam to die down a few times in order to fill a pint. With this flow control ball-lock, I can dispense at high pressures with no problems. So far I have had no issues with leaks or otherwise on all three that I ordered. Also these have a nice etched + and - indication on the top of the thumb screw. They are a bit taller than plastic ball-lock connectors, so be sure you have a little extra space.

Better than a flow control faucet

Review by Larry on 6/11/2020

I've been using both an Intertap flow control faucet and a Perlick flow control faucet. Never quite happy with the Perlick. I had 12 feet of line based upon the online calculator I found and even with the Perlick still had issues. I installed one of these and after about 1 pour of fiddling around each time I change a 1/6 keg, I never have to mess with it again. I left my original beer line installed instead of changing it over to the recommended ID line form Kegland. I'm not in that much hurry to make a pour and I'm very happy with the results. I ditched the Perlick for a regular Intertap SS faucet and couldn't be happier.

Q: In regards to the note about fitting modern kegs only: is there a way to put modern posts on older kegs, in order to be able to use these? I have eleven kegs, all ball lock but of varying ages and sources... none of them younger than 15-20 years.

A: IF your kegs are all Cornelius brand (stamped Cornelius Company, Anoka MN on the front) with 19/32-18 threading on both the gas and beer side, our posts P53 and P55 would insure that the flow control fits. If they are other brands or with different threadings, probably not.
