Beverage dispensers are useful to have around, especially during parties or events where there are a lot of people. The dispensers allow the guests to help themselves with juices, teas, smoothies, slush, and all kinds of drinks. Additionally, the portability of beverage dispensers allows you to host the gathering in any location.
There are different types of dispensers available for any kind of drink, event or setting. You can get refrigerated, insulated, or non-insulated beverage dispensers.
All the dispensers have spigots or valves to serve the drinks. They also come with one, two, or even multiple containers or polycarbonate tanks that can carry up to 25 gallons or more. These containers may be interchangeable. Some models don’t even need containers, and instead mix the drinks inside the machine to ensure the consistency of flavor.
Refrigerated beverage dispensers typically need electricity to run. They have refrigeration systems inside to make sure that the drinks are always kept cold. Most containers are made of heavy-duty polycarbonate, while the pouring valves are made of stainless steel. Other models use plastic instead of steel.
Insulated beverage dispensers are designed with high-density polyurethane to keep the drinks warm or cold. Polyurethane is a common scratch-resistant and durable insulator for dispensers and similar products. These kinds of beverage dispensers are useful for parties that will continue for long hours.
Non-insulated beverage dispensers do not produce frozen drinks or keep liquid at a constant temperature, but they are the most convenient and easiest to transport. It does not need electricity and can be cleaned quickly. You can safely pop them into the dishwasher. It is ideal for picnics and other public gatherings because it can serve as a handy self-service drink station.
To spruce up your dispensers, you can get self-adhesive labels so people will know what drink they are getting. Most spigots and valves and replaceable, so you can get clean ones or simple change them to different color and style of your liking.
