We offer a complete lineup of replacement parts for D-system keg spears; our Packaging Division Catalog is available upon request. As the D-system is the most common style employed throughout North America, these corresponding replacement parts are stocked and ready to ship once an order has been received. However, we also offer support and will supply parts and tools for additional spear styles, such as the A, G, M, and S Systems by special order.


We offer a wide variety of tools necessary for servicing your keg spears, including spear removal and installation tools, disassembly tools, and more.

Along with our tools, we offer user training manuals and provide technical support over the phone and via email to help insure that you are following the best techniques for safe and effective tool use.

In-House spear refurbishment

Micro Matic offers a spear refurbishment program which provides the option of restoration of your existing keg spears to like-new condition. This refurbishment includes replacement of the CO2 valve, O-ring, beer and CO2 springs and the circlip, while all of the remaining stainless steel components are thoroughly washed, polished and passivated. These refurbished spears are literally good as new and covered by our standard keg spears warranty. Refurbishment orders must be for a minimum of 1,000 spears, and will be performed at our manufacturing facility in Brooksville, Florida. Contact us for more details.

Micro Matic 3rd party certified valve refurbisher program

Micro Matic certifies 3rd party companies who meet our high standards for returning your used Micro Matic valves to like-new condition. Please contact us for the current listing of these service providers.

New generation keg spears

Purchasing new kegs in 2017? At Micro Matic we have introduced innovations for the D-System Keg Spears, available through most keg manufacturers.

Innovation unique to Micro Matic Keg Spears:

  • Color-coding of the CO2 valves for manual or camera-enabled mechanical separation of kegs that are due for routine, scheduled maintenance which Micro Matic recommends at approximately 7-8 year cycles. In 2015 the color-code was blue; in 2016 it is red; in 2017, green. (Note that there will be a 3-4 month transition period each year from one color to the next.)
  • Safety pressure-release feature of CO2 valves allows controlled deformation of the CO2 gasket without dangerous ejection of valve parts.
  • Retainer disc redesign for enhanced clean-ability and sanitation eliminating internal flat metal-on-metal parts interface.
