The stainless steel Perlick faucet was designed to be unique in both appearance and function. Manufactured with the revolutionary Perl Ball and floating o-ring design, the stainless steel Perlick faucet eliminates the need for a back sealing valve shaft contained in standard faucets. Back sealing empties standard faucets completely, leaving the internal parts vulnerable to air and bacterial infection
Following each pour, the Perlick faucet remains filled with beer, preventing the internal mechanism and parts from drying out and the handle lever from sticking. By limiting exposure of the interior parts to air, the faucet’s design inhibits the growth of mold and bacteria.
Stainless steel construction further enhances sanitary conditions. Standard faucets are composed of brass clad with chrome, materials prone to deterioration and pitting. Pits and flaws can harbor bacteria, eventually leading to off-flavors and infection. By combining stainless steel construction and innovative features, the Perlick Faucet creates a more sanitary environment, leaving beer fresher and better tasting.
Beyond improvements in sanitation, the Perlick Faucet’s stylish appearance provides an attractive touch to tap towers and keggerators while the polished interior delivers a smoother flow, generating less foam and yielding a more attractive pour.
