The KegLand Keg Reactor Lid fits any ball lock keg with an oval lid, and allows you to have continuous carbonated water on tap fed by your house water supply. All you do is install the lid, hook your house water supply up to ball lock inlet on the Reactor Lid, cool the sealed filled keg down to 40° F or less, attach your gas line and set your regulator for 30 to 50 PSI, and attach a water line to dispense carbonated water.

Basic Setup & Use:
1. Position the keg inside your fridge, kegerator, poolroom, or anywhere cold (ideally below
40° F).

2. Attach your dispensing tap of choice to the soda water outpost.

3. Attach your gas to the gas in post.

4. Set your CO2 regulator that is connected to the gas post to 30-50psi. (higher pressures will give you more carbonation so set your regulator pressure to achieve desired carbonation level).
NOTE: It's recommended to use a check valve in your CO2 line
to prevent back flow into your regulator.

5. The first time you use this unit it's a good idea to purge the air from the head space of the keg. To do this pull the pressure relief valve on the keg lid about 5 times for 2-second bursts.

6. Connect the house tap water to the water inlet post on the lid of the keg. We recommend using a check valve for this application to prevent soda water going back into your house water supplyYou can use either a DuoTight Check Valve item item C53 for 9.5mm outer diameter water tubing or a DuoTight item X34 if you are using 8mm diameter water tubing. For this unit to work well the house water pressure should be 30-50. To regulate your water pressure we would recommend the use of our Inline Regulator KL15035 Inline Regulator.

This simple unit will give you continuous carbonated water as long as the water it refrigerated and you have a supply of C02 and tap water. Great for a bar, cafe, restaurant, or just at home.

This is capable of carbonating 2 gallons per hour if you have sufficient ability to cool the water. The colder the water and the higher the incoming gas pressure the higher the carbonation level you will have.

Note that our KegLand Series X Kegerators feature two threaded plugs on the back top corners which fit our item C35, allowing you to have a male ball lock connector for both your water and your gas. This makes the Series X, with its ability to chill as low as 27° F, a perfect place to house your soda water system.

NOTE: Your house water pressure should be 30 to 60 PSI. If it is higher than this, use a water pressure regulator to reduce your house water pressure to 50 PSI before entering the keg.

carbonator keg lid

Review by louis r federico on 9/27/2020

I gave up on installing my McCann carbinator the moment I saw this product. This product requires no electric and does a great job. I installed this in my freezer kegerator using a 2.5 gallon keg which sits on the compressor shelf fits perfectly. Plenty of product great bubbles, great idea. Installed a third tap on my beer colunm and now have two different beers and soda water, works great.

Q: How should one connect to the house water line? A standard fridge icemaker line is 1/4" compression fitting. How do I get from the compression fitting to the duotight assembly?

A: 1/4" OD refrigerator ice maker line will fit a 6.5mm x 8mm Duotight reducer (item Z84) then use the standard 8mm EVAbarrier tubing and duotight connectors to connect to your Reactor lid. Don't forget to add a check valve (item X34) to the water line to prevent the soda water from backflowing into your home water supply.

Q: If you have a keezer or kegarator, you have to have a water line going to the inside? Not sure how that works.

A: Yes, this is a valve that keeps your keg filled with water so you never run out of carbonated water. If you want a simpler device that does not refill the keg automatically, check out our product B40, Keg Carbonation Lid.

Q: Does the water pressure have to be higher then the CO2 pressure? It seems like it would to allow water to enter.

A: That is correct. For this unit to work well the house water pressure should be 30-50 psi.
