This forward sealing tap is fabricated from 304 grade stainless steel. Due to it’s stainless steel construction it is more durable than any brass model This stainless steel model is ideally suited to both home and commercial environments.
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 occurs.
Now, when you close your Intertap™ tap, the forward sealing design shuts off the flow at the front of the tap which in turn keeps wild yeast and bacteria out of the interior of the tap body.
