The Nukatap Flow Control model is latest technology in flow control tap design giving you all the advantages of a forward sealing tap while allowing you to control the flow speed using a simple flow control leaver on the right hand side of the tap. This 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 (we generally recommend flow control faucets for customers who dispense commercial kegs, not home brew). The Nukatap FC is also the first forward sealing tap ever manufactured that can be used with an auto close spring return.
As in all Nukataps, first pour foam reduction is achieved through a a reduction in thermal mass by the use of molded rather than stainless interior parts. The tap is often the warmest part of the draft system as it protrudes from the beer tower or refrigerator. As a result, it acts like a heat sink and only works well once enough cold beer flows through it to cool the tap body down. By making the inner shuttle out of lightweight food grade plastic, thermal mass is reduced.
The NUKASHUTTLE design is the world’s first seamless shuttle. The streamline "nuke/missile" shape is how this new innovation earned its name "NUKATAP". This improvement in laminar flow means even highly carbonated beers pour like a dream with minimal turbulence.
The new NUKATAPS have been manufactured with a 2.5 degree reverse angle. This allows for a wider range of taps handles to be used, in particular, long and/or heavy handles to work perfectly irrespective of the installation conditions.
The Nukatap FC is the worlds first forward sealing tap that has a auto close spring (our part number I23). This means when you fit the optional spring you can let go of the tap handle and the tap will automatically close. Great for kids, pets, or clumsy buddies.
