Mechanical Spring Auto Tilt Stillages

Floor Standing Unit - Models KLS

Automatic Tilting Stillages are designed to gradually tilt as beer is dispensed from a cask. As beer is drawn the weight of the barrel reduces allowing the stillage springs to gradually open and tilt the cask. The smooth tilting action coupled with an efficient final tilt angle helps to save money by reducing beer wastage to a minimum.

  • One stillage for all size casks from 9 to 22 gallons.
  • The stillage is fitted with a pair of galvanized wire torsions springs which provide a smooth and efficient tilt.
  • Ullage can be reduced to a minimum eliminating beer wastage

  • The KLS stillage incorporates an 'Easy-Load' facility which eliminates the need to lift a cask when loading it on to the stillage. The rim of the full cask is positioned over the front hook on the stillage and the full cask is then simply tilted backwards on to the stillage. Once loaded on to the stillage the cask can easily be rotated on four roller wheels to centre the keystone.

  • Unlike most stillages where barrels are in direct contact with the metal stillage, Kayel stillages all incorporate a set of four roller wheels on which the barrels rest. These wheels enable the barrel to be rotated with ease to centre the keystone after loading and because there is no metal to metal contact, there is no fear of damaging the stillage which can lead to corrosion.

  • Unlike other stillages on the market today, there is no need to alter or change the springs when switching between cask sizes. The front loading hook has two setting positions - in the back position the stillage is suitable for 9 and 10 gallon casks whilst in the front position the stillage is set for 11, 18 and 22 gallon casks. The hook position can easily be altered in seconds without the need for any tools.

Due to the angle to which our stillages tilt, ullage can be reduced to below two pints in most casks and often even less than this. This ullage will be achieved every time a cask is loaded on to the stillage - no more forgetting to tilt the casks, no more wasting valuable beer!
