Beer Dispenser - Backpacks
A Beer dispenser system consists of one or more taps (usually a compensator tap) and fittings for connecting the storage containers, usually barrels, plus a pump or a pressurized gas container, also called a carbon dioxide or nitrogen bomb, with a pressure reducer suitable for this purpose.
- For heating or cooling the beverages, the beer dispenser can be equipped with appropriate equipment.
- As a rule, continuous flow coolers are used here, which cool the beverage while it is being poured.
A distinction is made between wet and dry coolers, with the somewhat outdated wet coolers using a cold water basin, whereas the dry cooler uses a cold aluminum block through which cooling coils with the beverage run.
- Beer dispenser tap systems are typically used in the beer service industry or where beverages are dispensed in large quantities.
- The quantity to be filled can be dosed manually or automatically.
- In the meantime, there are also beer dispensing systems where ready-to-drink beers are filled from canisters into drinking vessels at the push of a button.
- Smaller home beer dispenser systems for small beer kegs and private use are also on the market.
- A component of dispensing systems for beers, especially for draft beer, is usually a collecting device for the over foamed or skimmed beer foam.
- It consists of a tub under the tap, usually covered with a perforated, grid or slotted plate, in which the liquid is caught and collected.
- In the past, so-called leak beer was often served at a lower price to financially less fortunate customers.
Beer Dispenser equipment
- Through technical dispensing controls associated with the system, the correct dispenser technique and the correct pressure on the pressurized gas line, the so-called dispensing loss can be minimized.
- The CO2 content of the beer:
- the more carbonating CO2 present in the beverage itself, the higher the corresponding back pressure must be to prevent the carbon dioxide from dissolving.
Tap pressure of the beer dispenser?
- A pressurized gas such as CO2 is used to move the beer from the storage container to the tap.
- This gas flows into the container and ensures the buoyancy of the beer via a riser tube and the maintenance of the carbon dioxide content of the beere in question.
- A pressure reducer is connected to the pressurized gas container, as the pressure directly at the valve would be too high.
- Setting the correct tapping pressure on this is essential for tapping.
- This should depend on the following factors:
- The temperature of the beer:
- The higher the temperature of the beer in the container, the more easily the carbon dioxide dissolves and the higher the counterpressure must therefore be.
- The difference in height from the container to the tap: the higher the beer has to be transported in the fittings, the higher the driving pressure must be.
- The other portion is exclusively responsible for transport to the beertap.
- At the tap, the pressure is then reduced again to prevent carbon dioxide loss and to produce a moderate flow of the beverage.
- This is usually referred to as an adjustable " compensator tap"
Cold Beer Dispenser
- In case of deviations from normal beer quality!
- If a beer smells or tastes untypical, in the worst case a filtered beer comes out of the tap cloudy or flakes float in it, then the dispensing equipment most probably has a strong microbiological infection.
- Also in this a basic cleaning is absolutely necessary, because the infection cannot be removed from the infection cannot be removed from the system with the normal weekly cleaning.
- In case of apparent abnormalities
