SBC490 Series

SUMMIT's SBC490 Series of freestanding commercial beer dispensers brings the convenience of automatic defrost in a range of styles fit for any commercial setting. Available in black or stainless steel, and with single, double, or triple taps, these customizable beer coolers are perfectly sized under 24 inches wide and conveniently portable with sturdy castors.

Each SBC490 unit can accommodate half, quarter, and mini (pony) kegs. Models ending in suffix "NK" come without a tap kit for the "do-it-yourself" customer. All other units include our KIT490, a complete tap system with 5 lb. CO2 tank and regulator, draft arm, Sankey American tap, connection hardware and cleaning kit.

All SBC490 models feature an enhanced cooling system fit for use in bars, restaurants, and other commercial venues. Additional features include a top guard rail, adjustable thermostat, and a set of casters for optional installation. The automatic defrost interior ensures low maintenance operation.

The SBC490 models are designed for freestanding use. Built-in undercounter units are available in our SBC490BI series. All SBC490 units are built to commercial standards and meet UL Commercial Standard 471. For an NSF-listed version of these units, see the SBC4907 Series.
