Frequently Asked Questions

What is a tap dispenser?

A tap dispenser, also known as a tap cap, is a device used to dispense liquids from a container in a controlled and convenient manner. It typically consists of a spout or nozzle attached to a container, along with a lever, knob, or handle that allows users to control the flow of the liquid.

What types of liquids can be dispensed with a tap dispenser?

Tap dispensers are versatile and can be used to dispense various liquids, including water, beverages (such as juice or wine), cleaning solutions, soap, and even industrial fluids like oils and chemicals. The type of dispenser may vary depending on the intended liquid.

What are the different types of dispensing taps?

Non-venting and Self-venting Taps – When dispensing through a tap, the container needs to be ‘vented’ – air needs to get into the container – otherwise a vacuum will be created and the product will ‘glug’ out or be difficult to dispense. Often with the larger containers, there are two bungs opposite each other and when a tap is fitted to the one, the other can be opened to let the air in. With smaller containers or those with only one opening, you will need a self-venting tap. This lets air in at the same time as dispensing the liquid/chemical.

Where are tap dispensers commonly used?

Tap dispensers find applications in both domestic and commercial settings. They are commonly found in homes for dispensing water from water coolers or beverage dispensers. In commercial environments, tap dispensers are used in restaurants, bars, hotels, laboratories, factories, and healthcare facilities for various liquid dispensing needs.

How do tap dispensers work?

Tap dispensers typically work by opening or closing a valve mechanism, allowing liquid to flow or stopping it. Users can operate the dispenser by turning a handle, pressing a lever, or pushing a button, depending on the design. When the valve is open, liquid flows out through the spout, and when it’s closed, the flow is stopped.

What are the advantages of using a tap dispenser?
  • Hygiene: Tap dispensers promote hygiene as they minimize contact with the liquid, reducing the risk of contamination. 
  • Portion Control: They enable precise control over the amount of liquid dispensed, preventing waste
  • Convenience: Tap dispensers make it easy to access and dispense liquids quickly and efficiently.
  • Reduced Spillage: They minimize spillage, especially when dispensing liquids from large containers.

Are tap dispensers easy to install and maintain?

Installation and maintenance depend on the specific dispenser type. Some are simple to install and maintain, while others may require professional installation and regular servicing. It’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for proper installation and maintenance.
