The redesigned (patent pending) Nukatap Flow Control Faucet features an exclusive Nukashuttle valve that improves laminar flow for reduced foam and turbulence. 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.
Flow control is best for 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 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 Flow Control is the worlds first forward sealing tap that works with an optional 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.
Note: If you are using a non Nukatap Shank to install this faucet, you will also need one O ring L11 per faucet to seal your generic shank. See the picture above for details. Order one L11 Silicone O Ring per faucet if you have non Nukatap Shanks.
