  • Mini Design - Ideal Flow Rate for Small Systems


    Most conventional beer taps are designed with a 10mm diameter nozzle/spout so you can pour your pint in just over 10 seconds. This type of flow rate is great for high turnover bars and commercial venues, but this is not necessary or desirable for all applications.

     

    For compact portable systems and home brew draft systems a slower flow rate reduces foaming issues - and if there’s a lower liquid volume stored in the tap body, then that’s a bonus. This NUKATAP Mini accomplishes both of these and is ideal for pouring smaller doses (for example, pour a pre-mixed cocktail, when normally dispensing precisely 150-250ml of liquid would be difficult to control with a high flow rate tap).

     

    This tap with a flow control ball lock disconnect assembly is small enough to put in your pocket making it ideal for mini keg setups. Additionally this assembly will easily fit inside a domestic fridge where space is tight.

     

    Laminar Flow


    Just like the NUKATAP SS and NUKATAP FC, the NUKATAP Mini has had extensive modeling and has been designed to optimize laminar flow. Laminar flow is critical for a beer tap as it means you will pour the beer with minimal fobbing and a substantial reduction in wastage.  Think about how many times a beer tap opens and closes in its lifetime… 1,000 or maybe even 10,000 times? Laminar flow saves wasted beer in excessive foam and the better laminar flow easily pays for itself in a reduction in lost beer. To use poorer designed taps is literally like flushing money (or worse, beer!) down the sink.

     

    Integrated Seals That Are Not Only Extremely Sanitary - They’re Practically Indestructible!


    Unlike other designs, the NUKATAP Mini body is made from POK making it strong, robust and able to be autoclaved.  The seals are also over-molded (meaning NO fissures or cracks exist for bacteria, crud or yeast to hide) from Santoprene®, a hard wearing compound that will last the lifetime of the tap without the need for replacement. Santoprene® and POK both have excellent resistance to chemicals such as caustic soda, peroxide, phosphoric acid, lactic acid, citric acid, acetic acid, and other common chemicals sold and used in the beverage industry.

     

    Superior First Pour Foam Due to Low Thermal Mass and Conductivity


    First pour foam is an issue caused by a warm tap body. For most taps to pour well it's important to dispense enough beer to cool the tap body down before the tap will pour well.  In addition to this the conductivity of the tab body also makes this worse so insulative materials simply work better than conductive materials. The NUKATAP Mini not only has very low thermal mass but is also highly insulative being made mostly from Santoprene® and POK. The combination of these two factors, in conjunction with superior laminar flow, makes for the lowest "first pour foam" effect out of any tap ever produced.

     

    Forward Sealing Design
    Just like the Intertap and its predecessors, the NUKATAP shuts off the flow at the front of the tap which in turn keeps wild yeast and bacteria out of the interior of the tap body. Put end to substandard beer and only use NUKATAP taps.

    What does Rear Sealing Design Mean?
    Typically most beer taps use a rear sealing design and the beer in the tap drains from the body of the tap with the help from a vent hole drilled at the front of the tap. This drainage hole is a dark and wet cavity and is an ideal place for airborne bacteria and wild yeast to reproduce leaving a foul film that deteriorates the quality of your beer. Every time the faucet is opened contamination occurs.
