What is color coding?

The market leading spears from Micro Matic comes (optional) with a unique color and year coding for preventive maintenance.

Color-coding of the spears enables camera-controlled or mechanical separation of kegs that are due for routine, scheduled maintenance which Micro Matic recommends at approximately 7-8 year cycles.

​​​​​​​In 2021 the color-code was Purple; in 2022 it is Light Blue, and in 2023 it will be Magenta. (Note that there will be a 3-4 month transition period each year from one color to the next).

Below you can find the color markings for the years 2015-2026:

2015 Blue (RAL: 5010)

2016 Red (RAL: 3020)

2017 Green (RAL: 6032)
