SBC490BI Series

SUMMIT's SBC490BI Series features built-in undercounter commercial beer dispensers designed to meet your style and service needs, with automatic defrost operation for user-friendly convenience. Available in black, stainless steel, or with customizable fronts and with single, double, or triple taps, these beer coolers are perfectly sized to fit in 24 1/2 inch spaces and conveniently portable with sturdy casters.

Each SBC490BI 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.

Designed primarily for built-in use, the SBC490BI features an enhanced cooling system fit for optimum operation in busy commercial settings. It can also be used freestanding and ships with sturdy casters to be installed by users who want to use the SBC490BI as a portable beer cooler. These units utilize automatic defrost operation for low maintenance cooling.

The SBC490BI Series models are built to commercial standards and meet UL Commercial Standard 471. For NSF-listed versions of these units, see the SBC490BI7 Series.
