2/278 Cask Breather (Autovent) Black
Cask Breather (Auto Vent)
This is the Cask Breather (Autovent). Sometimes known as a Race Ventilator or Auto vent. This is an automated version of the hard and soft peg or spile. When installed correctly this can add days on to the life span of your ale. The Cask Breather can be used on either vertical dispense systems and in the traditional lay down method.
The Cask Breather is made from a high impact resistant food grade material. It extends the life of your beer. This is due to the Non Return Valve (duck bill) which controls the air entering the cask. Only natural air is allowed to enter the cask. When the beer is dispensed either at the cask tap or at the bar, the vacuum within the cask forces the valve to open.
Installation & Cleaning
To correctly install, simply create a hole in the shiv with either a Venting Punch Hand Held or a Barrel Vent Peg.
The Cask Breather is designed to come apart for cleaning, simply unscrew the cap and remove the silicon (Duck Bill) Non Return Valve, either put in hot soapy water or a cleaning solution and use a Cleaning Brush.
When using the ‘lay down’ method of dispense there are a large variety of different ways of Venting your Cask.
