I would be a little shy of that one.It is waaay too cheap,although its cheap enough that it may not hurt too much to give it a try. The most common problem with them is leakage, and you can drain a 20 lb. tank overnight.

Tsar, that appears to be a Manometer..It is used to measure the Volume of Co2(Kg/cm2), Not Pressure.

So, you may want to use a Regulator.

But,I may be wrong by thinking, kg/cm2 vs PSI, since I am a Seppo!

I think that if it were volume it would be cm3 not cm2, that's just another unit for pressure. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

You ar right tsar.If I remember right kg/cm2 is roughly equal to 1 bar or 1 atmosphere of 14 psi.
I think you will need another gauge on that to show your serving pressure.

I only have one gas out gauge and reg. If you want to keep some beers at a different pressure than others you need more regs.

The problem is that you will need ot be able to set the keg pressure with this regulator. The gauge is not fine enough.

fermenter: Sourdough Spelt Ale, Classic Lambic, Oud Brune, Barrel Aged Belgian Dubbel
Kegs: Bob's Black IPA, Blanc Blond, Soda...

Tsar,
i had used a regulator designed for welding when i first started kegging. i didn't work very well and was very frustrating. i would not recommend cutting corners with this specific item.
have you tried www.candirect.de ?

Wise words there Shib,

I consider these sort of purchases as long term investments. I know that cost can be an issue if you are on a budget but paying more for a quality item that will definitely do the job as intended is always better in the long run. Cheap kit always lets you down when its needed the most, there is nothing more frustrating than having a full keg of Ale with no way of getting it out under pressure.

:salute:
