Often referred to as the “Oscar’s of industrial design,” GOOD DESIGN began in 1950 and is now recognized as the world’s largest and most distinguished design competition. The award program annually bestows international recognition upon the world’s most prominent designers and manufacturers for advancing new, visionary, and innovative product concepts, invention and originality, and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered ordinary product design.
Engineered with nearly a century’s worth of Perlick commercial beer dispensing experience, the award-winning 650SS Flow Control Faucet offers more than proprietary flow control features – it also includes an innovative ball and floating O-ring design. This unique design eliminates the need for a valve shaft; thus, ensuring beverages are never exposed to air, the handle lever does not stick, and that the buildup of mold and bacteria in the faucet body is eliminated.
Additional features of Perlick’s 650SS Forward Sealing Flow Control Faucet include:
• Allows for at-the-faucet fine tuning to solve difficult to pour challenges – making it simple to fill growlers and to properly pour a variety of styles of craft beers (with varying carbonation levels).
• Every part that comes in contact with beverages is made from 304 sanitary stainless steel, protecting the fragile flavors of craft beer.
• The faucet can be cleaned in place – saving time and money.
• Can be combined with an optional Perlick growler filler tube (GT600) to create a cost effective option for filling growlers with minimal pour off waste.
• A Floating Front Seat features a contoured profile to provide enhanced surface contact for a positive seal.
• Fewer internal parts for better reliability and fewer service calls.
• Fits all standard North American shanks.
