What CO2 pressure is used for a coil cooler and cold plate cooler?

For cold plate and coil coolers, 30-35 lbs of applied pressure is recommended for dispensing beer that has an internal keg temperature of 50-55° F. A keg that is kept cold requires less applied pressure for dispensing. A keg that is being dispensed at room temperature or greater has a recommended applied pressure of 35-40 lbs of applied pressure.

Note: Cold plate coolers are not recommended for dispensing beer that has an internal temperature greater than 55° F.
