duotight 8mm (5/16″) x Ball Lock Disconnect (Black-Yellow/Liquid)
The humble plastic ball lock disconnects have been around a long time and are used by thousands of brewers around the world. Despite the extensive use they have seen little to no innovation for decades and Brewnation wanted to change this. As a result we have come out with the new duotight ball lock disconnect.
Some of the features include:
- duotight push in
These duotight ball lock disconnects already have the duotight fitting built into the ball lock disconnect. No need for additional threaded fittings. Simply push the beer/gas line in and you are done!
The worlds most compact ball lock disconnect every manufactured. This new compact form factor is great for tight spaces or fridges where you want to pack as many kegs in as possible. This is the only ball lock disconnect that allows standard ball lock kegs to be double stacked while still connected to beer and gas lines.
- Overmoulded Poppet
The overmoulded poppet design means you can couple and disconnect this ball lock disconnect under extreme pressures of 150psi and will never have issues with the o-ring blowing out.
- Tool-less Disassembly
Other ball lock disconnects require a tool such as a flat head screw driver or spanner to take them apart for cleaning. The new caps on these allow for easy disassembly by hand, making these easier to break down for cleaning. It’s literally never been easier to remove hop particles from your ball lock disconnects.
- Extreme Chemical Resistance
No cheap ABS plastic or nitrile seals. This ball lock disconnect is made from stainless spring and ball bearings, with an engineering polykeytone resin body, EPDM and PP/EPDM overmoulded poppet. This makes this ball lock disconnect resistant to extreme chemicals such as phosphoric and acetic acid, caustic soda, peroxide and many other acid or base chemicals which are commonly used in brewing.
This ball lock disconnect is more robust than any other plastic ball lock disconnect ever manufactured due to the use of new engineering plastics. Don’t be fooled by the small form factor – these bad boys are tough!
- High Flow
The internal design of these allows for faster flow meaning you can slightly quicker transfers when compared to other plastic ball lock disconnects.
duotight Swivel Elbow Sold Separately

KL18456 – 8mm (5/16″)
