This Elbow Faucet Shank: A Closer Look
An elbow beer tower shank is essentially a variation of the nipple shank in that the nipple with the hose barb has a ninety-degree bend. This bend helps accommodate the beer line while preventing crimping. In some elbow tap shank assemblies, the nipple is actually an extended tube that runs the length of the draft tower with the beer line attached to it.
A complete elbow beer shank kit will include a flange (stainless steel or brass), a faucet coupling, a snap ring, a sleeve, a metal washer, a spacer, and a lock nut.
Chrome Faucet Shank
A chrome faucet shank like this elbow tap shank is perhaps best used when you want to dispense highly acidic beer or wine because chrome will help conduct heat away from your beer faucet much faster than stainless steel, which also helps keep your faucet nice and cool for a guaranteed foam-free pour.
