This Beer Shank Assembly: a Closer Look
In a nutshell, the functions of a complete beer shank assembly are the following: it provides a place to attach the beer line, it provides an attachment point for the beer tap using the coupling, it provides a channel for the beer to flow through on its way to the mug, and it provides a conducive mass to help maintain the cold temperature of the beer while it is in the keg shank.
So basically the beer shank kit provides a transition between the beer tap and the faucet. There are actually three types of keg shank available in the market today: straight, nipple, and elbow shanks. Here at Rapids, we give you a large selection of keg shank units and accessories, depending on what you require for your establishment.
Chrome-Plated Brass Keg Shank
A chrome-plated keg shank like this beer shank assembly is perfect for use when you want to dispense highly acidic beer or wine. This is because the chrome-plated brass will help conduct heat away from your beer tap faster than any kinds of material, even stainless steel. It goes without saying that a chrome-plated brass beer shank kit will help keep your beer faucet nice and cool for excellent-tasting draft beer every time, with just the right head of foam.
