Anybody know what they're normally rated to withstand? I have a pal visiting from out of state tomorrow and to hurry along the carbing of a Pliny the Elder clone, I was hoping to get it mostly force carbed at 40 psi (34F) over 48 hrs. I attached the liquid side to a faucet (in my kegerator) to check progress occasionally.
I went and checked it and there was a bit of beer foaming out the top of the QD. Had to clean a few ounces of beer from the bottom of the kegerator but no big deal. I replaced the QD with another one and disattached it from the keg for tonight.
I'm thinking I had a bad QD - the top was screwed down tight. Still, I'm curious what pressure they normally can take.
I couldn't find info after doing a google search.
