The Leland CO2 TapGas cartridge features a small cylinder that holds 74 grams of triple-filtered 99.97 percent pure low-moisture carbon dioxide, just enough to dispense an entire quarter keg container with a small reserve. Its threaded neck facilitates easy installation (and exchange on half and full kegs), and the hermetically sealed container ensures no one has tampered with its single-use sterile gas cartridge.
The Leland PicnicTap features a modern design and a single-stage pressure regulator for the commercial beverage business. The regulator’s mounting incorporates several subtle patented safety features, and the remaining tap elements are standard features, simplifying lease fleet maintenance. PicnicTap is provided in a “grab-and-go” travel pack with two replaceable CO2 TapGas cartridges and complete instructions for every step from chilling to tapping and serving.
Additionally, in-store promotional aids include an ice-requirement chart for proper chilling. – Leland Ltd., P.O. Box 466, South Plainfield, N.J. 07080-0466; 800/984-9793; mrfizz.com
