This Intertap Flow Control SS model is polished 304 stainless steel with a smooth bore to aid a completely laminar flow and foam free dispensing of beer. In addition to this, it also had the added advantage of the flow control leaver on the right hand side of the tap. This adjustment gives the operator full control over the flow speed and makes balancing your beer lines a snap. This type of tap is typically suited to customers who are often switching from one beer style to the next and want maximum flexibility in their draft system.
Typically most beer taps use a rear sealing design and the beer in the tap drains from the body of the tap with the help from a vent hole drilled at the front of the tap. This drainage hole is a dark and wet cavity and is an ideal place for airborne bacteria and wild yeast to reproduce leaving a foul film that deteriorates the quality of your beer. Every time the faucet is opened contamination can occur. When closing the Intertap tap, the forward sealing design shuts off the flow at the front of the tap which in turn helps keep wild yeast and bacteria out of the interior of the tap body.
Intertap uses a threaded spout that can easily be removed and replaced with a range of other spouts including:
– Stout Spout
– English Sparkler Spout
– Growler Filler
– Ball Lock Post Spout
Requires a shank, sold separately.
Note that this is the stainless model.
