- Extra Info.
These Stainless Steel S30 Injection Valves with pressure release come as “Standard” shown here, with Piercing Pin for use with the 8 gram CO2 Bulb Injection System. I now find the Bulb Injection System more beneficial than the S30 Large CO2 Cylinder used without Floating piercing pin, as replacement bulbs are smaller and the barrel requires less headroom for recharging. Be careful to look after these precision engineered S30 Injection Valves by not exposing them to Sodium Metabisulphite Steriliser, the liquid and fumes of which can corrode the metal, and may result in tainting the flavour of the brew.
Fitting the Valve in 2″ or 4″ caps
These S30 valves are well made in shiny stainless steel and are a good deal stronger than the plastic Barrel Caps in which they are inserted and fixed.
It is therefore necessary to use TWO Spanners to tighten the securing nut so as not to depend on the flat sided hole in the soft plastic cap to prevent rotation of the valve as the nut is tightened.
To do this without shearing the cap hole and causing leakage, hold the larger spanner on the securing nut while the smaller spanner holds still the straight sided threaded shaft of the S30 valve above. Then gently tighten the nut so that the rubber washer is in firm contact with the cap and valve flange inside the cap.
Be careful not to over-tighten the valve as the rubber washer may be distorted and dragged out of shape risking leakage. The washer can be smeared with Balliihoo Food Safe Seal Grease to safely prevent leakage.
