Three-vessel industrial mini-brewery
As well as the restaurant mini-breweries made by our company, also the industrial variants can be delivered in two basic variants.
However, comparing to the restaurant mini-breweries, these variants differ in more than just in the type of boiling equipment jacketing. The boiling equipment of an industrial mini-brewery can be made in three-vessel or six-vessel variant. Thus, the three-vessel boiling equipment consists of three separate stainless steel tanks, namely a mash-wort kettle, a filter tank and a whirlpool. The industrial variants of our breweries are equipped with a service platform with stairs, a sink with sample cooling and a touch screen for semi-control or full automation of the boiling equipment.
Although called "industrial", even the three-vessel boiling equipment is, by its design, an adornment of the entire mini-brewery. The exterior jacketing can be made out of ground or polished stainless steel and together with all-glass inlets in all of the three tanks, it creates a pleasant design contrast to the rest of the technology. This statement is best confirmed by already existing mini-breweries of our production such as the Český Krumlov Brewery, Kvasar in Sentice, or the Royal Omar Brewery in Alexandrov, Russian (and many others).
Like all other types of our boiling equipment, the three-vessel industrial ones are able to brew both in decoction and infusion methods, and therefore, they are able to produce both, the classic double-mash Pilsen lager or the top-fermented specials such as APA, IPA etc.
The duration of one batch is from 8 (infusion) to 11 hours (decoction – double-mash).
Both types of our industrial boiling equipment can be adapted to the needs of brewing today's very popular Craft beers. These types of beers are more difficult especially because of their higher alcohol volume and they put a little different demands on the boiling equipment than the classic Pilsen type of beer.
Therefore, the CRAFT version of our industrial boiling equipment contains several changes to the standard version, namely:
1) Electric lifting of the stirrer blade in the filter tank and that up to 200 mm.
2) Increase of the filter tank capacity by 20% minimally.
3) Special type of the bottom of the filter tank with increased permeability compared to the standard variant.
Various features of the CRAFT version of our industrial boiling equipment can be combined with the standard type and, therefore, you can come up with a completely unique form of a boiling equipment tailored to your requirements.
A model example of an industrial mini-brewery with a 1000 litre three-vessel boiling equipment and of a production up to 3000 hl / year
Description of selected model example components:
One thousand litre version of a boiling equipment of an industrial mini-brewery. Stainless steel three vessel boiling equipment consists of a mash kettle, filter tank and whirlpool. This cooking equipment brews up to 1,000 litres of finished beer per batch. The basic form of this boiling equipment comes in semiautomatic version, in which the pneumatic valves of the steam and water inlet can be controlled from the touch display. The operator can thus set the individual steps of the temperatures at which the boiling equipment starts the brewing process, as well as he can set the volume of water to be infused. In this semi-automatic version, the rest of the valves is operated manually.
For the main fermentation, the cylindro-conical tanks with a working volume of 2 000 litres (two batches) are placed in this industrial mini-brewery model example. We are able to produce and deliver the CK tanks in several qualitative designs and with various certificates of pressure vessels (PED, GOST-R), always exactly based on customer’s needs. The standard tanks can be viewed in the Products / Components / Cylindro-conical tanks section.
Apart from the cylindro-conical tanks, additional fermentation vessels are needed in which final fermentation, lagering and bottling of the beer can take place. For this purpose, there are vertical tanks cooled by water with a working volume of 2000 litres placed in our sample set. The fitting, quality and tanks parameters can be individually tailored to the needs of each customer.
This insulated, stainless steel container equipped with a cooling spiral serves for storing and cooling the treated brewing water, which is then used to cool the wort in a single-stage wort cooler. During this process the water is heated to approximately 80 °C and after that, it goes straight to the hot water tank, where it is maintained until the brewing process starts.
Mobile sanitation equipment serving to sanitize the system of pipelines and tanks of the mini-brewery. The sanitation unit is equipped with a pump for a circulation of the sanitizing solutions and with two reservoirs – one for lye and one for acid. The vessel is also equipped with its own electric heater for heating the sanitation lye.
The automatic washer and filler of KEG barrels, Sankeg 25, can sanitize approximately 20 KEG barrels per hour or sanitize and fill 15 KEGs (50l) per hour. It depends on the speed and skill of the operator as well as on the setting of the length of each automation step.
