  • Every part of your beer dispensing system works with maximum efficiency
  • All possible waste is reduced to a minimum
  • The beer keeps flowing and the clients are happy

There are a few handy tools to increase your beer dispensing system potential and achieve all these three goals - we’re talking about FOBs and bar beer pumps. Let’s see what makes them so great.

What Is a FOB?

FOB stands for “foam on beer”, which gives you an immediate idea of what this little thing does. Foam on beer detector is usually installed as a part of a long-draw beer dispensing system. This beer fob helps to reduce beer waste and prevents foam from getting into your beer lines.

Why Do You Need a FOB?

If you lose a pitcher or more every time you need to change a keg or your keg even blows, the extra foam in the beer line may slow down your service start costing you money. Beer fob system eliminates these problems with ease.

Beer fobbing is a must for long-draw draft beer systems when your kegs are in a cooler away from the bar and they have lines running underneath the bar all the way down to the beer tower.

If you have your kegs right in the bar underneath the coolers, you probably might go without a FOB detector beer.

How Does a Beer FOB Detector Work?

Foam on the beer detector is essentially an empty keg sensor. When a keg runs out of beer, the FOB detector stops the beer flow and keeps the beer in the line preventing air from getting into the line which causes foam and unnecessary waste.

When must a foam on beer FOB detector be reset? If you’re using a FOB foam on beer, as soon as your keg is changed and locked it back into the system, you need to prime the chamber, as they call it.

To do so, use the black lever on the bottom of your FOB and push it up to release the gas/foam from the chamber. This will allow the beer to flow from the keg into the chamber thus lifting the float and letting the beer flow to the faucet. The system’s ready to go!

Beer Pumps

Beer pump is a reasonable alternative to using gas pressure to push beer inside a draft beer dispensing system. With a beer pump system, you have the pump moving beer from the keg to the point of dispensing (a faucet).

The beer transfer pump is often used in long-draw systems (200 ft and longer) where pressure should be more than the standard 35 or 40 PSI to sustain a consistent flow.

Beer pump compressor can be powered by either high-pressure gas (most commonly, CO2) or compressed air that must not come in contact with the beer in the system.
