There are several connection options to allow you to use the Fill-Boss with various beverage vessels. The Fill-Boss requires two connections, one for the CO2 (gas) supply and the other for the beverage. It is important that the pressure on the gas line match the pressure in the beverage vessel.
We have standardized on the Ball-Lock type connectors for the Fill-Boss as they are quick connect/disconnect and are self sealing with integrated valves. Ball lock connections are included with every Fill-Boss unit but we offer other connection options as described below that you can add to your order to convert the filler to your beverage vessel. We recommend that you use the ball-lock connectors and purchase at least one small Cornelius keg for sanitizing and cleaning purposes.
Please download and review the operations manual
for this product for more details on how the filler is used or scan the QR code below.
We also offer a Multi-Filler Kit that allows up to 4 Fill-Boss Fillers to be ganged off a common source. Most commercial operations have from 2 to 4 fillers ganged together to increase production. We have found that we can fill about 2 cases of standard 12 ounce bottles in 20-30 minutes with 2 people and two fillers. One person fills and the other caps, labels, wipes, and places in case. We have a customer filling 22 ounce bomber bottles and they report being able to do 1 case (12 bottles) every 10 minutes with 2 fillers and 2 people.
The only moving part in the filler is the electric solenoid valve. These valves can become plugged if filling beverages with sediment in them. We recommend purchasing the optional inline filter if you are filling beverages with visible sediment. The valves can also become "sticky" if not cleaned properly and routinely. For this reason, we recommend purchasing a few spare solenoid valves (they are easy to change) in the event a valve becomes plugged or sticky and needs to be cleaned. Simply install the spare and clean the valve off-line.
If you need to fill a bottle with a mouth diameter greater than 1.25", you can simply replace the bottle seal we provide with any standard brewery grade drilled rubber stopper. For example, a size 11.5 drilled stopper fits the opening of HydroFlasks perfectly (see picture for this item showing rubber stopper used on HydroFlask growler). We don't supply these stoppers, but they can be found at any homebrew or brewery supply retailer or online.
The Fill-Boss is powered by a wall pack power supply that provides 12 VDC at 2 AMPS. The power supply we provide is similar to the one shown below and has an input range from 100-240 VAC and has USA type prongs. It has a standard Connector size: 5.5 x 2.1mm. If you are purchasing for use outside the USA, you need to either source the appropriate USA travel adapter to use this device in your country or source a power supply with the same specifications.
