Difference between piston tap and compensator tap
A compensator tap is operated at a higher pressure than a normal piston tap. operated. With the latter, the beer can only be tapped properly at a pressure of approx. 0.4 to 0.6 bar.
If the pressure is much higher, all that comes out of the tap is often foam.
With a compensator tap, however, a pressure of 1.3 or 1.4 bar is no problem.
The special design inside reduces the pressure of the incoming beer before it leaves the tap.
Dispensing beer with a compensator tap.
For a compensator tap to work properly, the beer must be well chilled. Ideally, it should be at a temperature of around four to six degrees when tapped.
After tapping, the flow rate of the compensator tap should first be set to the highest level.
This will allow the air to be forced out of the lubrication line before the actual tapping.
Once this is done, you can reduce the flow and start tapping.
Adjust the flow so that a continuous clear stream comes out of the compensator tap.
Advantages of an expansion tap:
The main advantage of using a compensator tap is that it is extremely flexible and saves space.
Its use eliminates the need for a pressure-relief coil without sacrificing foam-free tapping of the beer.
A compensator tap allows for more or less foam-free tapping of different types of beer, such as wheat or pilsner, and can be used both for systems with a very short line and for tapping directly from the keg.
A quality compensator tap pays for itself
It is advisable to look for good quality when buying a compensator tap.
Cheap models with plastic components are particularly prone to scratching when cleaned.
Over time, this means that the beer tends to foam more and more when tapped, which means that both the tap and the compensator have to be replaced relatively quickly.
With a stainless steel compensator tap, on the other hand, you can be sure that it will perform well for much longer and allow you to tap without foam.
The extra cost is usually manageable and well invested.
