The KegMan faucet shanks will fit all modern bar and tavern applications (7/8 x 14 thread) but we cannot guarantee to fit the myriad of inferior parts on the home brewing and superstore market today. Also note that our shanks have a one (1) inch O.D. and when replacing a Banner Shank you must enlarge the 7/8 O.D. hole to 1 inch.
The faucet shank is a standard part of any draft beer system. The shank is the hollow tube which connects the draft beer faucet to the beer line and passes thru the tower, wall, bulkhead or other such bar barrier. The front of the shank is made with a spline coupling which accepts the spline of the faucet to hold it in an upright position. The rear of the shank can have three standard forms.
- 3/16" nipple shank is used in all home and most bar (short run) applications)
- ¼" nipple shank is used in longer run (over 6 feet) to reduce the pressure drop in a system.
- 3/16" bore shank with just a threaded hole for an elbow, gland and locking nut; third, the short tower shank with a soldered 3/16" inch SS elbow. Shown on the Shank Parts page.
- ¼" bore shank with just a threaded hole for an elbow, gland and locking nut; third, the short tower shank with a soldered 3/16" inch SS elbow. Shown on the Shank Parts page.
Sometimes we may substitute a shank that is the next longer size that the one ordered when the shank ordered is out of stock. If this would present any problem to you please let us know when ordering and we will make sure the shank is the exact shank length ordered. Thank you.
