Ultimate Oxygenator Kit

This kit is for the 'serious homebrewer' who wants to control, and know, how much Oxygen they are injecting into the wort. The kit consists of the following:

1. A refillable 20 CF O2 cylinder. Has 20 times the O2 of the disposable unit, (good for about 500 batches of beer). Tank gets hydrotested every 10 years and is easily, (and cheaply) filled at any participating welding gas company (check your local vendors). The tank will outlive us. It is 17 3/4" tall and 5" in diameter.
2. An O2 regulator that not only reflects the remaining tank pressure, but has a control knob where you can adjust outlet pressure between 1/32 and 4 liters per minute. So you KNOW and can MEASURE how much O2 you're injecting.
3. A 22 inch stainless wand with 2 micron stone attached, so you can position the stone exactly where you want in the carboy and stay sanitary throughout the process. It's attached to the reg with 5 feet of 1/2" tubing.

These oxygen tanks have ISO stamps on them. Some vendors may claim that they can only fill DOT stamped tanks and not ISO. While this may be their policy, ISO is the current standard in the United States and abroad. These tanks are tested. More information about the differences between ISO and DOT stamps can be found below:

ISO vs. DOT/TC High Pressure Cylinders

Gas Filling and Certification Overview

1. In addition to the USA and Canada, UN/ISO cylinders are approved for use in almost every country around the world. This means cylinders can cross country borders and still be filled easily.

UN/ISO is a worldwide, harmonized regulation for compressed gas cylinders that is universally recognized.

2. Higher rated capacities allow for UN/ISO cylinders to be easily integrated into a fleet of DOT / TC cylinders (UN/ISO service pressures are at or above the common fill pressure of a DOT cylinder with a + 10% overfill designation). Also, our UN/ISO cylinders contain friendly markings with service pressures rated in PSI and BAR.

3. UN/ISO cylinders remain in circulation at maximum capacity for life of tank. Due to the higher design ratings for pressure, ISO cylinders do not require REE (Rejection Elastic Expansion) testing to achieve the common cylinder service pressures used and approved in North America. While REE is a valuable and stringent test, DOT cylinders will often have their max fill pressure ratings reduced. This is very inconvenient for fillers because they like to fill many cylinders at once with the same pressure.

1 of 5 Replace parts out of the box September 6, 2018
Reviewer: Mike from Canmore  
The tank, regulator and carbonation stone are solid but everything in between is flimsy.

After removing the wand from sanitizer I shook it dry and the steel tubing bent. It is not much stronger than a coat hanger. I can imagine having to replace this sooner than I would want.

The hose is tissue-thin silicone and is too big for the wand and regulator barb. It leaked even with a zip tie and hose clamp, plus being pinched by hand. This is not safe near open flames.

If I saw this in person before buying it, I wouldn't have bought it.

2 of 5 oxygenator kit hose February 22, 2017
Reviewer: david herder from Kelowna, BC Canada  
The hose that comes with the kit is not as pictured. Instead of the nice, long, bevflex type hose that is pictured, OBK ships you a crappy lightweight silicon tube that is pretty short.

2 of 5 Nobody will fill these tanks (exchange only) March 23, 2016
Reviewer: Dave Chappelle from Waterloo, ON Canada  
I was excited to order this product. After I received it I started calling around to find somebody to fill it. Unfortunately, all of the gas suppliers like Praxair, Liquide, etc will not fill the tank for you. They only do exchanges. The reason being that they do runs where they fill 100s of tanks. They only do these runs every few months. So you can't just walk in off the street and say "fill this for me". So after ordering the kit with the tank and paying for shipping, I then drove down to Praxair and exchanged the brand new tank for a beat up old tank. There is no way that I am the first guy to order this O2 kit and have this issue. Ideally, I would have just ordered the regulator and wand from OBK and then just purchased a used tank from Praxair. I would have saved money on the tank as well as shipping.
