Cold Plate Resistance?
« on: August 05, 2012, 07:26:58 PM »
I'm getting ready to set up a jockey box and want to make sure I have enough beverage tubing on hand to balance the system. To maintain 2.4 vol at 30°C/86°F, I'll need to have the kegs at ~35 psi.

Google isn't being much help. NB's product page says that the plates will drop 21.6 psi, but also that they're 18' of 1/4" tubing, so the math doesn't work out - 18' of smooth 1/4" tubing should drop ~4 psi, and the bends and fittings can't tack on that much.

Frequent cold plate users, have you found a length of 3/16" beverage line that works for giving a balanced pour?
