The Tapcooler revolutionized counter pressure filling your bottles, and now they've done the same thing for cans! Introducing the Tapcooler Counter Pressure Dual Head Can Filling Station! This product comes with all the items you need to counter pressure fill your cans of beer (works with standard 202 end cans). All you you need is your beer, some cans and lids, a can seamer, and a table to mount the filling station to. With the dual headed design, you can can up to 250 standard 16 oz. cans per hour with a single operator. This is a great setup for the aspiring homebrewer that has a lot of beer to can, or a small startup/nano brewery that doesn't want to spend thousands on a mobile canning service.
Counter Pressure filling is the #1 way to fill cans of your homebrew, directly from your kegging system. Fill cans for that hiking trip, vacation, or just a few to send home with friends and family. The Tapcooler is quick and easy to use, and will help maintain the flavor, aroma, and carbonation level of your beer so it tastes the same out of the can as it would out of the tap.
ONLY WORKS WITH STANDARD 202 END CANS! YOU WILL ALSO NEED CANS AND A CAN SEALER.
Each Tapcooler head in this setup is it's own independent unit. For EACH head you will need one keg of beer, a liquid out line on the keg that can connect to the female flared fitting on the provided keg connector, and a CO2 line connected to your beer keg to push the beer from keg to the Tapcooler head. You will also need a separate CO2 line connected to the Tapcooler itself that supports 3/16 in. pushfit tubing. This is a bit different than standard thick walled tubing and barb setups, so if you have any questions, just let us know and we can help you out.

The clamp and drip tray design allows you to setup the can filler to almost any table with a flat/smooth surface. In addition, the clamp provides a tight seal on the cans while filling. The can seal is clear silicone that includes a flange that directs spills along the outside of the can to help with the mess. The included beer valve connectors allows you to hookup directly to your kegs, and the drain tube allows for any excess beer filling to be redirected from the Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) to another vessel such as a growler or bucket. The base of the can filling station also acts as a drip tray, with a drain tube in the back which makes for a truly mess free setup.
A counter pressure filler is better than most solutions, as the can is under pressure while the carbonated beer flows in. Because the interior of the can is pressurized there is minimal loss of the CO2 in solution.
With the Tapcooler design, your beer AND CO2 are filled from the bottom of the can through the telescoping connection tube. First CO2 flows down into the bottom of the can to flush from the bottom up. Next you open beer valve beer flows down the same tube, filling from the bottom up. The result is a more effective purging of oxygen and little to no foam during the filling process
The telescoping connection tube allows you to fill cans of various sizes (still requires standard 202 ends).
The filler features a push button CO2 purge valve which allows you to purge the can of oxygen before & after filling. It also includes an adjustable pressure relief valve, giving you the ability to change the filling speed. The pressure relief valve also acts as an overflow port for excess beer/foam to escape when filling.
One of our most favorite features of the Tapcooler, is that is super easy to clean. Cleaning other fillers can be a chore and take lots of time. The Tapcooler comes apart easily and allows you to clean all parts effectively and easily after each use.
All metal parts that come into contact with your beer, are made of stainless steel (SS304). The barb and ball lock CO2 adaptors are made of aluminium.
