Beer Carbonation

Safety Procedures

The brewer should only use pressure-rated vessels for carbonation and must know the maximum working pressure of the tanks. Pressure-rated tanks are certified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) certifying its ability to withstand normal operation pressures. Tanks are equipped with pressure relief valves as a precaution against over-pressurization.
