Aston Hand Pull 1/2 Pint Cylinder – for Clamp on & Thru the Bar Beer Engines
Harry Mason Ltd has been producing high quality Hand Pulls since 1803. In 2016 we created our newest addition The Aston Hand Pull. This combines all of our expert knowledge with the use of modern materials. The Aston Hand Pull 1/2 Pint Cylinder has a very appealing price tag and comes with Harry Masons’ top quality manufacture and reliability hallmarks as standard.
The Aston 1/2 Pint Cylinder and comes with self-contained water jacket. This eliminates the possibility of cross contamination. The Aston 1/2 Pint Cylinder also comes with an Energised Non Return Valve. This prevents the beer from flowing back down the line.
Installation & Fitting
The Aston Hand Pull and Cylinder is also exceptionally easy to install, change and maintain. To remove the Aston Hand Pull 1/2 Pint Cylinder drain both the lines and the cylinder beforehand. This will help eliminate waste and reduce mess. Firstly unscrew the pivot points near the base of the frame. Remove the dispense tap and unclip the spring pin. Once you have the cylinder and dispense tap free from the frame this make it a lot easier to access the jubilee clips. Simply loosen the jubilee clip that holds the connection tube on to the outlet of the top cap and pull the tube off.
To install the new cylinder slide the connection tube over the outlet. Tighten the jubilee clip back up to create an air tight seal. To connect the cylinder to the frame, slide the spring clip through the holes which connect the cylinder clevis and Aston Quadrant together. Screw the dispense tap back to the frame and screw in the pivot point. Tighten the bolts to the frame to avoid them coming loose. Be careful not to screw the pivot points to much but keep them flush with the outside of the frame.
To connect the dispense unit up to the beer line, simply slide a Hose Clip on the end of the beer line. Once in place slide it on the bottom of the Hose Tail. This is then connected to the Aston Cylinder. Make sure to keep all washers and seals in place to keep it air tight.
Testing and Warranty
With the aid of our new test centre the Aston Hand Pull has been put through rigorous testing. This has replicated the equivalent of many years in-trade usage. We have such confidence in the performance and longevity of the Aston Hand Pull that we are able to offer a 3 Year warranty.
