What About Flow Control Models?
First, why flow control? What Does a Flow Control Faucet Do?
Flow Control variations of Intertap and NukaTap faucets were both available at some point in the past. It seems they are largely (maybe completely) unavailable now.
Background… From William’s Brewing:
via an email sent on 6/4/21
This weekend, we have some awkward news about being told to stop selling Flow Control faucets due to a patent dispute. So if you need a flow control faucet or kegerator, this is a good time to shop.
Due to legal issues, we will no longer be able to sell Intertap Flow Control Faucets after June 18th. Take advantage of our plight and get our remaining stock for 30% off while supplies last!
- My guess is that Intertap Flow Control Faucets are going away, at least how they exist now.
- The Nukatap Flow Control has mostly been out of stock for months,
this info from William’s leads me to believe if this same issue is affecting Nukatap Flow Control Faucets.
- I believe it’s possible that as retailers find some of these sitting around, one or two may pop up here or there.
- Alternatively eBay may be a good source for used faucets, see search below.
NukaTap Flow Control Faucets
My early guess about Nukatap FC faucets was thankfully incorrect. They seem to be have re-introduced and, as of this update, I know of two sources.
- Nukatap Stainless Flow Control Faucet at William’s Brewing
- NukaTap Stainless Steel Beer Faucet (With Flow Control) D1584 at MoreBeer
