- Simple and easy to use
- Fewer parts makes cleaning easy
- Plastic canister won't conduct heat
- Fittings are all stainless or plated metal
- Pre-calibrated and easy to read components
- Cost is much less than competitor's models available
- Comes with its own carrying case
- Use an NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technology) reference thermometer to calibrate the carbonation tester thermometer at or near the sample testing temperature.
- Use an NIST certified dead weight tester or an NIST certified pressure gauge calibrator.
- Do not turn the hex nut when calibrating the thermometer. The hex nut immediately below the head of the thermometer is used to hold the thermometer while turning the head to calibrate.
- Ensure that the pressure gauge and thermometer are calibrated prior to conducting a carbonation test.
- Chill both halves of the carbonation tester in an ice cold water bath. Do not submerge the pressure gauge or thermometer.
- Open the relief valve by flipping the yellow toggle to a vertical position.
- Empty the contents of the carbonation tester
- Tilt the canister to 45 degrees and fill the canister to the scribed line located inside the canister. The fountain drink should flow steadily down the side of the canister to minimize foaming.
- Place the canister on a horizontal surface and carefully screw on the cap.
- Once the cap bottoms close the relief valve and tighten the cap a quarter turn.
- Gently swirl the tester until a pressure of 5 psig +/-1 psig is indicated on the gauge.
- Purge the carbonation gas by opening the relief valve; the pressure should drop down to zero
- Close the relief valve
- Vigorously shake the carbonation tester for 30 seconds
- Determine the volume (%) of carbonation from the canister chart by reading the value at the temperature/pressure intersection.
- Open the relief valve and empty the contents of the tester
- Wash the tester in a warm mild detergent and then dry thoroughly
