HOW TO ASSEMBLE EVOLUTION TAP + HOW TO INSTALL PEGAS EVOLUTION INTO BEER TOWER

The device should be installed vertically over a table on a hollow-core beer tower with a diameter of at least 90 mm, or over a bar counter with a through-hole with a diameter of 23 mm. The recommended distance between the axis of the beer supply shank and the table surface should be at least 450 mm. When two or more devices are installed, the recommended distance between the axis of their shank should be at least 150 mm. A drip tray needs to be installed for collecting any spillage.

WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR CONNECTING THE TAP?

  • beer keg with a coupler
  • CO2 cylinder with a pressure regulator (adjustable to 0.15 – 0.25 MPa
  • food-grade LDPE hoses with 9.5 mm (3/8″) outside diameter or food-grade PVC hoses with 7 mm (1/4″) inner diameter
  • hose clamps to fix flexible PVC hoses on nipples (if needed)
  • T-fitting (if needed)

NB!  It can be difficult to fit hard MDP hose onto Pegas tap’s nipple. as a compromise between flexibility and hardness, the manufacturer advises using Rehau 3/8” hose. Contact us to find out more

NB! If you would like to work with hard MDP hoses, it is possible to use speedfit G5/8” instead of the beverage supply nipple that comes with the tap. Screw the speedfit hose adapter into the tap’s shank and attach to the hose.
