  • Nipple to shank connection

    I have an old Beverage Air BM23 and the nipple that connects the beer line to the shank is a 3/16" 90 degree. I cleaned it the other day and got the soft rubbery washer out of the back of the shank, it was kind of dried up and hard. It came out in pieces, now i have no replacement and can't seem to find one anywhere.

    Does anyone know where I could obtain one of these washers. The BevAir website does not seem to be much help.

    It is a different style connection than the newer ones I think, I looked at photos and diagrams of newer shanks and they have a rubber washer that connnects to the back of the shank, not down inside the shank like the one I have.

    Do I need to replace the shank and get new connection this way? Or can I find a washer of this type somewhere?

    Thanks in advance if you can help.

    Really need some help, no tap beer at the moment.

    In my old Kenmore, I had a similiar problem. I bought one of these:

    Problem solved.

      Here is link to the replacement gasket. When you tighten the compression nut onto the shank, hold the tube against the shank and do not over tighten as you can force the gland (gasket) into the flow of the beer. After tightening, inspect the inside of the shank with the faucet removed to verify that the gasket is not impeding flow.
