The Cap Washer fits between the Plug Cap and the disconnect housing of both Becker Gas and Liquid Disconnects, forming a liquid or air tight seal and preventing troublesome leaks.
Storing a small inventory of disconnect washers in the brewery will prevent tap line downtime following a rare but occasional washer failure.
Following the attachment of disconnects to the soda keg plugs, if gas is heard escaping or liquid is observed leaking from the disconnect, the Ball Lock Plug O-Ring may be damaged or worn out. Replacing the o-ring first will solve most disconnect leakage issues. If the above strategy proves ineffective, the internal washer of the Becker Disconnect may need changing.
