More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Dual Wireless Sensors: Built-in the console and 2 remote sensors, the wireless fridge thermometer can display indoor temperature and 2 groups of outdoor temperature simultaneously. You can use it in the refrigerator or outdoor.
  • Accurate Max/Min Record: The indoor/outdoor thermometer range; Indoor: -10℃~ 60℃ (14℉~ 140℉); Outdoor: -40℃~ 60℃ (-40℉~140℉); Transmission range: 100M/328ft (open area). It can record max and min temperature and display up, down & parallel arrow to indicate the trend of current temperature.
  • Audio Alarm: The wireless refrigerator temperature with audible alarm, you can set the maximum and minimum alarm value manually. It can ring when the temperature value reaches at the point of limit max or min alarm value that you pre-set.
  • Multiple Installation: The wireless thermometer is easy to install. With integrated magnets, a hanging hole and a bracket at the back, you can put the main unit in refrigerator door, hang on the wall or stand on the table.
  • Easy Operation: There are 6 function keys on the main unit and signal indicator on the transmitter, you just press the corresponding key to turn on/off the alarm, switch the Celsius or Fahrenheit and clear the MAX/MIN records.

 

Thoughts from HBF… So, this has two wireless sensors along with an ambient thermometer that’s built into the main unit.  It also records minimum and maximum temps for each sensor.  You could use one sensor in your fermentation chamber and one sensor in your kegerator to monitor temperatures.  The min and max feature would also give you a great idea about how things are working.  As a bonus you also get all the same info for the ambient temp where the base is located.  Note that the sensors need to be within the stated range of this unit (or closer).

NukaTap Flow Control Faucets Are Back!

Nukatap Stainless Flow Control Faucet

Nukatap Stainless Flow Control Faucet via William’s Brewing

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The redesigned (patent pending) Nukatap Flow Control Faucet features an exclusive Nukashuttle valve that improves laminar flow for reduced foam and turbulence. As in all Nukataps, first pour foam reduction is achieved through a a reduction in thermal mass by the use of molded rather than stainless interior parts. The tap is often the warmest part of the draft system as it protrudes from the beer tower or refrigerator. As a result, it acts like a heat sink and only works well once enough cold beer flows through it to cool the tap body down. By making the inner shuttle out of lightweight food grade plastic, thermal mass is reduced.

Flow control is best for customers who are often switching from one beer style to the next and want maximum flexibility in their draft system (we generally recommend flow control faucets for customers who dispense commercial kegs, not home brew). The redesigned Nukatap Flow Control is also the first forward sealing tap ever manufactured that can be used with an auto close spring return.

The new NUKATAPS have been manufactured with a 2.5 degree reverse angle. This allows for a wider range of taps handles to be used, in particular, long and/or heavy handles to work perfectly irrespective of the installation conditions.

The Nukatap FC is the worlds first forward sealing tap that has a auto close spring (our part number I23). This means when you fit the optional spring you can let go of the tap handle and the tap will automatically close. Great for kids, pets, or clumsy buddies.


 

What Does a Flow Control Faucet Do? – It helps you easily balance your system – More Info

  • Intertap Flow Control Faucets recently disappeared. I had theorized that the same was true of Nukatap Flow Control Faucets because of their prolonged absence.  Good news… this guess was (apparently) wrong.
  • William’s brewing announced the availability of NukaTap Flow Control towers a week or two ago, but stand alone faucets were not in stock.
  • As of this updated, stand alone Nukatap Flow Control Faucets area available again at William’s Brewing.  Hopefully these are here to stay, but we’ll see.  Check product page for current availability.

The fact is we’re putting beer (food) in our kegs and we should be using food safe materials whenever we can.  More Info: Food Safe Replacement Keg O-Rings
