Brewery Production Plant

The manufacturing unit which produces beer is considered as a brewery or brewing industry. The beer production increases as per consumer demands, and competition in the market. Beer manufactures in a hygienic environment at specific conditions to maintain the taste and quality.

The production process starts with malting. The barley grains are immersed in water to encourage sprouting and spread out in a room for the germination process. The resultant barley is passed through the high-temperature kiln for drying purposes. For adhesive material, SLA Series is well suited. For a maintenance-free solution Vital will be a great choice.

The grains are termed as malt after malting process. These malt are crushed proportionally and mixed with hot water. The water is much hotter and requires special management to used safely. Level measurement solution like Elixir is best option which has high temperature endurance.

Tuning Fork Level Sensor

Mash Tun

The crushed barley grains are mixed with hot water in a huge vessel known as a mash tun. The mashing process converts starch (discharged during malting) into fermentable sugar. For the hygienic environment, EHEDG certified Elixir-T-Uni is highly preferred and for longer life span Elixir is a proven solution.

The resultant of mashing process is a clear sugar-rich liquid known as "wort". In lautering process wort is separated from grains. Fork type level sensor Elixir with hygienic fittings will added advantage. For compact solution Elixir-T-Uni is best.

Wort Kettle

The wort is conveyed to a copper kettle called wort kettle to boil the wort with hops. This boiling process helps to extract the bitterness from hops. Use tuning fork level sensor Elixir-T-Uni for temperature up to 150°C and for low power consumption, use vibration level switch Elixir.

Fermentation Tank

The hot wort is cooled and transferred for the fermentation process. The operation starts by adding special brewing agent yeast. The yeast changes the sugar into alcohol and carbon-di-oxide. The sticky material in fermentation process requires Coat-Endure type admittance level switch with build-up immunity.

Yeast Storage

Yeast is responsible for the fermentation process in the beer industry which metabolizes the sugar to produce beer and release carbon-di-oxide. SLA Series will be useful for remote monitoring and for compact probe length, use Coat-Endure.

Aging Tank

Aging tank is also known as secondary fermentation tank. The secondary fermentation is required to sink remaining particles of yeast. For large storage section, SLC with rope arrangement is helpful.

Bright Beer Tank

The addition of clarifying agents helps to enhance the taste of beer and makes the beer brighter. This process takes place in small tanks. For small level measuring device, Elixir is compatible.
