At least ten meters usually separate a beer barrel from the beer tap at the bar. With this distance, it could mean you get a warm beer on a hot summer’s day. This problem doesn’t just impact upon the taste, but also goes against regulations. Bar operators need to ensure a temperature of four degrees Celsius at all times. Pump systems such as ecoFLO® from the British manufacturer Cornelius therefore have hoses with integrated cooling, known as pythons.
An ebm-papst immersion pump tirelessly dissipates the heat from the beer. The ecoFLO® features another highlight that saves the bar operator money. Instead of continuously cooling the beer in the hose and in barrels, even when it is not needed, the ecoFLO® only jumps into action if there is a risk of the temperature rising. This saves around 42 percent on energy costs.
