Innovative draught beer system: Tapmaster

Beer enthusiasts are demanding and critical, and they are willing to show it. They increasingly ask what beers are on tap, and they are quicker to complain that the beer has an unpleasant odour or taste.

Bar and pub proprietors, on the other hand, want to demonstrate their professionalism by offering an exceptionally wide range and impeccable quality. Quality cannot always be taken for granted with traditional draught systems, even with regular intensive cleaning. The result is a considerable loss of beer. PALM Belgian Craft Brewers has now set about changing this, with its revolutionary and innovative draught technology: TAPMASTER.

    Four models in one compact design

    A space-saving draught beer system: 4 kegs chilled at the bar for every 50 cm of bar length

    TAPMASTER is the unique, patented draught beer system with an integrated keg refrigerator and chilling up to the tap, developed by PALM Belgian Craft Brewers. The installation system allows you to select the model that fits perfectly into your bar. Installation requires only minimal alterations, so your bar doe not have to become a temporary building site.

    A TAPMASTER system with one door (four 20-litre kegs) and three draught towers only takes up 90 cm of bar length. For the version with eight draught towers, 240 cm (sixteen 20-litre kegs) is sufficient. You have a choice of chilling systems: direct Freon chilling with a remote chiller or glycol chilling with a remote glycol/Freon chiller.

    Integrated chilling system

    Kegs and lines are constantly chilled up to the draught tower.

    The kegs (4 to 16) and the lines leading to the taps are constantly kept at the right temperature and carbon dioxide pressure. No more beer spoilage in lines and kegs, even if the kegs remain connected for three weeks. No more turbid beer with an unpleasant taste or an odd smell. No more oversaturated beer with in excessive head when it is drawn. TAPMASTER eliminate all your traditional draught problems.

    Unprecedented high returns

    • no maintenance costs
    • no hook-up or daily flush-out losses
    • very low CO2 consumption
    • TAPMASTER keeps kegs and beer lines chilled up to the tap. This rules out infections and eliminates the need for a maintenance contract for line cleaning.

      TAPMASTER ensures that there is no loss of beer when hooking up a new keg and that there is no longer any need to run off the first glass every day. This means that you get more beer from your keg: the first glass you draw each day can be sold directly and the last glass from the keg will be equally delicious.

      TAPMASTER allows you to leave the beer in the lines on closing days. This eliminates any loss of beer resulting from running water through the lines. The keg is always kept chilled and is located directly under the tap. At low temperatures the CO2 equilibrium pressure is only 0.85 bar. Only minimal positive CO2 pressure is needed to drive the beer from the keg to the draft tower. This avoids the risk of over-saturating the beer, and the associated dispensing problems. Result: 66% less CO2 consumption, guaranteed to provide lots of extra income every year.

      Good news for great and small

      Low-turnover beer and a wide choice of specialist beers can be provided on tap.

      You know the problem: a draught beer keeps for 2 to 5 days at most. TAPMASTER, by contrast, extends the shelf-life of draught beer to 3 weeks. This applies to every tap, meaning that various specialist beers can now be provided on tap as well.

      TAPMASTER: at home in every bar or pub

      TAPMASTER fits perfectly in every bar or pub and is suitable for both staggered and peak consumption. Even if you are only open a few days a week or only at the weekend, this draught beer system is the only one that can provide you with guaranteed quality. There is a TAPMASTER for every type of bar.

      Excellent value for money

      • o-cost investment. What are the installation costs for a TAPMASTER? Don’t worry. PALM Belgian Craft Brewers will take on the installation charges. Condition: your average annual consumption is at least 10 hectolitres per draught tower. We are convinced that once you start using TAPMASTER, you won’t be able to do without it in your business, nor will you want to.
      • No beer waste
      • No maintenance costs for flushing out lines, and each glass tastes just as fresh as the first
      • 66% less CO2 consumption

      These cost benefits are considerable. In an average food pub or inn with six draught towers and annual sales of 50 hectolitres of pilsner and 50 hectolitres of specialist beer, total annual savings will be an impressive €2,340. This amounts to €395.20 per draught tower. This is €23.71 per hectolitre, equal to an average of 12.16% additional purchasing discount.

      TAPMASTER is easier to use, more economical, more functional, more versatile and less costly than a traditional draught beer system. It is also the only draught beer system that offers guaranteed quality.
