Also known as a race ventilator or auto vent, this cask ventilator is an automated version of the hardwood and softwood spiles.
Usable on both lay down and vertical dispense systems, when installed properly the auto cask can add days to the life span of your ale.
It can also be used with our flexible ale extractors.
Made from a high impact resistant food-grade material. It extends the life of your beer by use of the Non-Return Valve (duckbill) controlling 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.
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.
