An elbow shank is a variation of the nipple shank in that the nipple with the hose barb has a ninety-degree bend. This bend helps accommodate the beer line while preventing crimping. The elbow is soldered into the shank to prevent the kind of internal leaks that are common in older elbow, flare nut, and gland elbow shanks.
This elbow shank assembly is NSF certified, made of chrome-plated brass, and includes the flanges, coupling nut, and lock nut necessary to attach it to the draft tower and faucet. Designed with 7/8"-14 (5/8" BSP U.S. Beer Industry Standard) straight pipe thread, this shank will work with all North American faucets. If you're using equipment from outside North America, you'll need to source a specialty shank.
NOTE: Barbed elbow will fit 3/16" or 1/4" I.D. tubing. Hex nut not included, order separately.
