Bulk CO2 Systems Technical Service Bulletin TSB-BEV-1009 Component Change Date: April 6, 2017 Subject: New design Fill Box/Assemblies and updated vent line connections (Update to TSB-BEV-1006). (Updated from January 31, 2017 release) Products Affected: All new Chart Beverage System CO2 fill boxes and existing fill boxes where new style vent lines are installed. This change adds a compression style fitting to attach the vent line to the fill box instead of a barb fitting. New style Chart vent lines require a compression fitting to be used instead of barb fittings. Description: The stainless steel fill box is a major component of a stationary bulk CO2 fill and vent circuit. It includes the liquid CO2 fill fitting and vent line termination fitting which safely vents excess CO2 gas outdoors. National and International Fire codes require materials used in vent and fill lines be able to withstand exposure to -109°F temperatures. The new vent and fill lines meet this requirement. However, the new vent line must use a compression fitting for factory approved attachment to the vent discharge on the fill box. Barb style fittings cannot be used with this vent line. The fill box design has changed to accommodate bulkhead style compression fittings so that the vent hose (See table (1) for vent hose kit part numbers) can be securely connected. The fill box depth dimension has changed slightly to accommodate these new bulkhead compression fittings. The pass through feature of the bulkhead fitting allows the vent line to be visible from inside the fill box , thus confirming discharge of the vent line outside the building.

With these bulkhead compression fittings the vent tube is passed through the entire bulkhead and extends an inch or two where a push to connect elbow is attached to direct the venting gas to the bottom of the fill box and away from the service tech. Verification of vent tube connection is as easy as opening the fill box and verifying that the vent tube can be seen extending out of the bulkhead compression fitting.

If a conduit is used to enclose the vent and fill lines you can easily source a 3 inch diameter PVC pipe, 4 inch to 3 inch PVC reducer, and a standard 4 inch PVC flange from plumbing supply stores. The flange mounts directly onto the back of the flush mount fill box.
