Brass-Plated Faucet Shank
A brass-plated tap shank like this assembled faucet shank is perhaps ideally used when you want to dispense highly acidic beer or wine because brass will help conduct heat away from your beer faucet even faster than stainless steel. Needless to say, a brass-plated beer shank kit will help keep your beer tap nice and cool for a guaranteed foam-free pour and—by extension—great-tasting beer.
A Closer Look at The Beer Tap Shank
Essentially, the beer tap shank provides a transition between the beer line and the faucet. There are generally three types of faucet shank available in the market today: straight beer, nipple, and elbow. Here at Rapids Wholesale, you can choose from a wide variety of faucet shank units and accessories, depending on what you require.
In a nutshell, the functions of a complete beer shank kit are the following: it provides a place to attach the beer line, it provides an attachment point for the faucet 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 beer tap shank.
