The name Perlick has been in the beverage industry for a long time, and has always been associated with high quality draft equipment. The 630SS is no exception. This faucet is forward-sealing so there is less chance of bacterial and yeast activity. A high-quality forward sealing faucet such as this will need to be cleaned less frequently than an inferior back-sealing standard faucet. Being all-stainless, this Perlick faucet is built to last! Staying strong long after other metals begin to degrade, a stainless steel Perlick faucet is something of a long-term investment, but well worth the price!
