Level Sensors for Brewery Production Plant

The production of beer operates in a strict and hygienic environment. Sapcon level sensors are designed and developed in close association with industry requirements and standards for such applications.

Applications

Malt Silo
Malt Silo

The production of beer starts with malting the barley grains. For this, the grains are germinated by drenching them in water to encourage sprouting. Further germination is then halted at a particular stage by drying them out. The wet barley is sticky and can form a coating on the level measuring probe. SLA Series is a justified solution which comes with coating immunity. Another maintenance-free solution that would suit well is SLM.

Vibrating Fork Type Level Sensor
Hot Water Tank
Water Tank

During malting process, barley is immersed in hot water which is stored in tanks. Level measurement in these hot water tanks can be done without calibration of the instrument by using Elixir. As the temperature inside these tanks is very high, the level sensors being used for this application need to have good temperature endurance. For this, SLC Series is an ideal solution.

Capacitance based Level Switch
Mash Tun
Mash Tun

The malted barley grains contain activated malt enzymes which convert starch into fermentable sugar. This process is known as mashing and the material made during this process is stored in a vessel called llmash tun. For vibrating fork type level sensor use Elixir-T-Uni which has smoother fork and Elixir which ensures longer running life.

Lauter Tun
Lauter Tun

The process in which mash is isolated into clear liquid known as wort and the remaining grains. This process of extraction is known as lautering. Elixir can be useful as it is unaffected by fluid movement. For hygienic purpose Elixir-T-Uni is a proven solution.

Wort Cooker
cooker

The clear liquid "wort" obtained from lautering process is boiled with hops in the large tank which is called as wort cooker. For buildup immunity Elixir-T-Uni is perfect solution and Elixir can also be used as it has fork erosion alarm.

Fermentation Tank
fermentation

After wort is cooled, yeast is added to it and now the material is ready to ferment. During fermentation, the material becomes viscous and Sticky. Coat-Endure is immune to coating which proves to be best solution in this type of application.

Admittance based Level Sensor
Yeast Storage
Yeast Storage

Yeast is the microorganism that is responsible for fermentation in beer. Yeast metabolises the sugar which produces alcohol and carbon dioxide, turns wort into beer. Use SLA Series in which calibration is possible for remote location and for sticky application Coat-Endure is used.

Admittance based Level Sensor
Aging Tank
aging

Aging tank is also known as secondary fermentation tank. The secondary fermentation is used when beer is required for long storage before packaging. For large storage tank SLA Series is useful which is available in rope probe arrangement and SLC which ignores material buildup is well suited.

Level Sensor for aging tank
Bright Beer Tank
bright

The clarifying agent is added to beer which precipitate out of the beer along with protein solids in the finished product and this process makes the beer bright and clean. For small tanks Elixir is compatible and get easily installed.
