    Polished Brass The body is forged brass, polished to a bright finish.
    Polished Stainless Steel The body is forged in stainless steel, then polished to a bright finish. This is the best faucet available today. The stainless steel will not impart any off-tastes. The finish will not tarnish like brass or pit like chrome. Excellent choice for all beer, wine, cocktails, or cider as it is not affected by acidity.
    PVD The body is forged in stainless steel, with a tarnish-free brass-like finish. Excellent choice for all beer, wine, cocktails, or cider as it is not affected by acidity.

    Faucet Components

    Shaft – The shaft is moved by the lever resulting in an on or off position—any position in between results in foam. If the shaft cannot move in the faucet body, it will be difficult to open and close the faucet. Dispensing issues will occur if the two vent holes are clogged with yeast or mold.
    Lever – The lever holds the faucet handle and pivots on the shaft. Brass or stainless steel levers are available. Brass levers are more economical but are more susceptible to damage. A stainless steel lever is more durable and is ideal for larger, heavier faucet handles.
    Friction/Ball Washer – Black rubber washer sits on top of the white nylon ball washer. Check for wear; the washer can become crushed with use. Replace when the bonnet can no longer be hand tightened.
    Lever Bonnet – This compression nut on top of the friction/ball washer determines lever action. Hand tightens only.
    Coupling Washer – Thin black washer between the faucet body and shank. Visually inspect the washer during faucet cleaning. Replace if damaged to eliminate leaks.

    Straight shank
    Nipple Shank
    Elbow shank


    The shank creates a stable mounting place for the faucet. It is the transition point between the beer line and the faucet. Shanks come in a variety of lengths. The shank is an excellent conductor of cold between where the kegs are stored and the faucet. However, it is important a shank does not go through thick walls where the beverage would be allowed to warm up. Shanks are available in economical chrome-plated brass or quality stainless steel.

    Straight Shank – Requires additional fittings to connect beer line: hex nut (874), tailpiece, neoprene washer (759), and clamp.
    Nipple Shank – Built-in tailpiece for easy beer line connection. Only a clamp is required.
    Shank with Bent Tube – Utilizes elongated 1/4" O.D. tube extending down through the tower into a kegerator. Threaded fitting on end allows for easy connection with a hex nut and tailpiece inside the kegerator.

    Multi Wrench


    Maintaining the faucet is critical to proper dispensing. Start by disconnecting the faucet using a faucet wrench (also referred to as a "spanner"). Disassemble and clean the faucet when cleaning the beverage lines and couplers; always use a recommended cleaner. A few minutes of routine maintenance will protect the beverage quality and reduce dispensing issues.
