THE CARBO-COUPLER CO2 MANIFOLD
The Carbo-Coupler was created by Industrial Carbonics
to address the high initial expense, continual venting,
periodic maintenance and service problems associated
with a low pressure Dewar and to hault the constant
“changing out” of individual cylinders.
It was specifically designed to be maintenance free
and never require servicing. It is a completely closed
system, never venting during filling or operation
and is warranted for life.
The Carbo-Coupler CO2 system consists of a Carbo-Coupler
Manifold and three standard, unaltered CO2 cylinders
of the same capacity or any combination of cylinders
that maintain a 2 to 1, liquid to vapor, ratio. The
system may be expanded up to 1800 lbs by simply adding
groups of 3 like sized cylinders.
By using the Carbo-Coupler Manifold and the correct
grouping of standard CO2 cylinders, a "one vessel"
bulk CO2 system is created. A system using time tested,
industry proven components that can be filled at retail
user's location, accurately, and safely. A "one
vessel" system, for example, could consist of
three 75 lb D.O.T. approved CO2 cylinders chambered
together creating a 225 lb. bulk system that can be
"topped off" as needed without ever removing
or touching the system.
The Carbo-Coupler delivery system incorporates the
blending together of a delivery vehicle, a 3000 lb.
to 12,000lb. DOT approved MC-331 insulated CO2 delivery
tank and the Industrial Carbonics proprietary pumping
system. A key component of the system is the use of
a weight mechanism that literally weighs the liquid
CO2 dispensed at an end user's location. This process
allows for the accurate filling and billing to the
The System incorporates a design that allows the
accurate, measured filling of standard pressure CO2
cylinders in a bulk configuration on location, eliminating
the need to handle the cylinders.
A mechanically driven pump, with a pumping rate 40-50%
higher than most high pressure cylinder pumps, is
used to disperse liquid CO2 into the "bulk"
systems. The pumping rate can be manually adjusted
from 250 psi to 1250 psi without the need of a pressure
The goal of Industrial Carbonics in marketing this
complete System has been to provide an "operator
friendly" CO2 filling apparatus that saves time
and money to local distributors and ultimately the
end retail user. Our System is automated to the extent
that all pressures and filling requirements are controlled
electrically and all functions are operated in a safe
environment. An operator is required ONLY to open
and close one ball valve to fill any system.
WHY THE CARBO-COUPLER SYSTEM?
-Better Quality - through eliminating syrup and CO2
waste, poor drink consistency, and the need to return
residual CO2 left in a cylinder to a supplier.
-Reduced Employee Time - by eliminating changing
out cylinders, dealing with
regulators, tools, washers, safety caps, keeping abreast
of the amount of CO2 left in a cylinder, and the need
to train workers.
-Eliminates - the possibility of impurities being
introduced into the system during
a cylinder change over; our system is total enclosed.
-Safety - through eliminating employee handling,
moving, and "changing out"
cylinders. No more fear of personnel injuries do to
-Convenience - No longer will cylinders, either full
or empty, be "in the way", whether by the
service door or in a back corridor.
-Environmentally Safe - no venting of CO2 during
the day whether through pressure build up or the "changing
out" of cylinders.
-No Ongoing Maintenance - with only one moving part
and a constant supply
of CO2 and pressure, there is little to go wrong with
-Longevity - with CO2 cylinders lasting 50-75 years,
and tested every 5th year, a
system could last 20-30 years or more.
-Minimal Installation - the Carbo-Coupler system
can be installed quickly, easily and inexpensively
by a trained distributor
-Efficiency - the Carbo-Coupler system can cut consumption
an estimated 25-35% over existing single cylinders
