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.

New generation keg spears

Purchasing new kegs? 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 2017 the color-code was green; in 2018 it is was brown; in 2019 it is yellow. (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.
