The new Core 360 Mini CO2 Regulator from KegLand represents a huge jump forward in the mini regulator market. After much feedback on how to make mini regulators more compact, sturdy and efficient, the brilliant engineers at KegLand have come up with this mini-beast.
Heavy Duty Construction
Starting with the body of the regulator, this unit is made from chrome-plated solid cast brass which means it will stand up to quite a bit of abuse. Unlike most mini regulators, the pressure gauge on the Core 360 is safely recessed in the regulator body, so if you ever drop it there is little chance that you'll damage the gauge. What's more, the gauge is removable, so you can swap it out with another mini gauge with a pressure range that better suits your application.
Unique Cartridge Connection
What really sets this unit apart from other mini regulators is the way in which you insert a CO2 cartridge. A common complaint with these types of regulators is that you can lose a lot of gas from the cartridge just from threading it into the regulator. There's that brief period where the cartridge has been punctured but you haven't fully threaded it into the regulator to form a seal. If you're not quick enough, this can result in a significant amount of lost gas. The Core 360 has a unique design feature where inserting the cartridge is a 2-step process. First you fully thread in the cartridge so it forms a seal before it's opened, and then you screw down the actuator pin to release gas into the regulator. Simple and effective.
Furthermore, the Core 360 Mini Regulator is designed to be compatible with both 16g and 74g cartridges. Out of the box it will be ready to accept 16-gram 3/8"-24 UNF threaded cartridges. But with a simple adapter (coming soon!) you can switch to 74-gram 5/8"-18 UNF threaded cartridges.
Interchangeable Gas Outlet
Another feature we haven't seen before on a mini regulator is the interchangeable gas outlet. You can use the swivel nut connection to directly attach the regulator to a flare ball lock disconnect, or you can swap to the 6.5mm Duotight-compatible barb and connect draft tubing. This a great option if you want to dispense a commercial keg without the need of a ball lock to sanke coupler adapter.
The regulator also has two outlet options at either a 45° or 90° angle which makes this the ideal mini regulator regardless of whether you use plastic or stainless steel ball lock disconnects.
If you remove the 16g cartridge bushing, you'll find TR21-4 female threads for use with SodaStream gas cylinders. These can be a great option for mobile dispensing as they provide much more gas than a CO2 cartridge and are more easily transported than a full CO2 tank.
