TOTAL SOLUTIONS FOR HIGH GRAVITY BREWING

BOOST YOUR BREWHOUSE
Pentair's High Gravity Brewing (HGB) Technology allows you to boost your brewery's capacity considerably and offer a variety of products without having to invest in brewing house, tank or filter capacity. The brewing house also needs less water to make the wort, so less energy is needed for heating, boiling and cooling purposes. 
The idea behind HGB is to make and ferment wort with a high original wort content. Less water and energy are required and brewers are able to blend the brew into different end-products later.

RELIABLE PLUG-AND-PLAY HGB UNITS
Pentair’s engineered solutions for a high-efficiency HGB system consist of a modular membrane filtration unit, water deaeration systems plus blending, carbonation and optional dosing units. Our solutions help keep the footprint of your process plant low and helps to avoid the cost associated with multiple process lines – boosting your brewing efficiency significantly. With these solutions you can have a peace of mind when it comes to carbonation and you can focus on what really matters, crafting great beer.


MAXIMIZE PRODUCT VARIETY
Beer lovers around the world are constantly looking for new taste experiences and like to enjoy various beer types. The brewer’s challenge is to not only create rich, flavorful and various beer types, but also to maximize product safety, optimize output, and deliver the highest quality beer possible.

SAVE MONEY ON TANK EQUIPMENT
This means there is no need of investing in expensive areas of your brewhouse and you’ll benefit from more than 60 years of brewing process engineering experience.


SOFT DRINKS
Also, when producing Carbonated Soft Drinks (CSD’s), our fully automated blending and carbonation solution helps to mix syrups, deaerated water and CO2 to add the right ‘ fizz’ to your drink.

HIGH GRAVITY BREWING UNITS

Beer Membrane Filtration Systems


A BMF makes use of proprietary membrane technology owned by Pentair. This membrane fiber technology has several advantages compared to the use of diatomaceous earth filters: beer ageing is strongly reduced and beer quality is consistent. Besides the use of membranes is sustainable and environmental friendly.

Blending & Carbonation 

Pentair's Carbo Blender (CBR) combines accurate control of both blending and carbonation in one unit, enabling the optimization of high gravity beer production with regard to both quantity and quality.

Water Deaeration


The Water Deaeration System WDS is based on our long experience in the area of gas/liquid stripping technology resulting in a highly efficient removal of air. 



Deaerated Water Distribution


Pentair Südmo's Hygienic and Aseptic Valve Technology is used to distribute deaerated water.

Functional description

Carbo Blender (CBR)
Pentair’s Carbonation and Blending System - Carbo Blender CBR combines accurate control of both blending and carbonation in one skid-mounted unit, enabling the optimization of high gravity beer production with regard to both quantity and quality. Deaerated water dosing is controlled by either original gravity or alcohol measurement, and carbon dioxide (CO2) dosing by CO2 measurement. In addition, there is the option for combined CO2/Omeasurement.

The Carbonation and Blending System - Carbo Blender performs blending on the basis of water/beer ratio control, with correction on either original gravity or alcohol content through PLC control. This ensures that the blending process is both effective and highly accurate. 

After blending, carbonation takes place by injecting CO2 at the inlet of a dissolution tube. The CO2 is then finely dispersed and dissolved by a set of static mixers, which are engineered to suit your specific process conditions, guaranteeing complete, bubble-free dissolving of the CO2.

The Carbo Blender is a skid-mounted system, consisting solely of proven components. It includes all required piping, wiring and a PLC control system. The hygienic, fully automated and reliable design guarantees easy handling, low maintenance and a long service life. The quality and reliability of the Carbo Blender is backed by our many references around the world.

Carbo Controller (CCR)

The Carbo Controller works by injecting CO2 at the inlet of a dissolution tube. The CO2 is then finely dispersed and dissolved by a set of static mixers, that are engineered to suit your specific process conditions.

The In-line CO2 meter, type AuCoMet-i determines the amount of CO2 and can immediately adjust the CO2 dosing rate if needed. The CO2 analyzer communicates directly with Pentair Haffmans’ CO2 dosing block through embedded software. Besides controlling the carbonization process and measuring the CO2 content, optional Oxygen measurement is available to monitor product quality.

The Carbo Controller comes as a skid mounted system. It consists of proven components, and includes all required piping, wiring and control systems. The hygienic, fully automated and reliable design guarantees easy handling, low maintenance and a long service life. Quality and reliability is backed by many references around the world.

Pinpoint Carbonator (PPC)
The Pinpoint Carbonator is designed for efficient CO2 dissolution, and intimate gas-to-liquid contact by dispersing very fine, 5 – 9 micron size bubbles with microporous stainless steel injector plates. 

When beer passes along the plates, it soon receives full CO2 saturation at any flow rate. The immediate saturation and improved bonding provided by the Pinpoint Carbonator prevent foaming during the transfer of beer from Ruh to storage.

Water Deaeration (WDS)
Pentair Water Deaeration System WDS is based on our long experience in the area of gas/liquid stripping technology. The water deaeration system is based on stripping technology with the help of CO2, either at a temperature of 72 °C, or at ambient temperature.

The water deaeration system is a skid-mounted system, it consists of proven components, and includes all required piping, wiring and control systems. The hygienic, fully automated and reliable design guarantees easy handling, low maintenance and a long service life.

Water enters the top of the stripping column and is led through specially designed packing with a large contact surface area. CO2 is injected at the bottom and travels in counter flow, resulting in a highly efficient removal of air. The deaerated water is subsequently cooled down to a temperature of 2 °C.

Beer Membrane Filter (BMF)
A Beer Membrane Filter (BMF) makes use of proprietary membrane technology. A membrane is a thin polymer layer with pores working as a sieve in the shape of a fiber. Turbidities like yeast and proteins are retained while beer flows through the pores. The membrane is used for many filter run-cycles, which is possible because of an optimized cleaning protocol. The membrane is made from poly ethersulphon (PES) which is known for its great compatibility with food & beverages, and can withstand cleaning agents and high temperatures. Thousands of membrane fibers form a module, and 4-18 modules are packed to a membrane unit.

Typically, Pentair’s BMF system consists of an unfiltered beer tank, the membrane filter system, and a filtered beer tank, along with a designated cleaning agent cabinet. In existing breweries, reuse of the current tanks in the filter line is possible, which helps minimize capital expenditures.

BMF systems offer unique features with the PES membranes, the optimized filtration process, and the ideal cleaning procedure. The optimized filtration process withstands large amounts of yeast, and yeast even has a positive effect on the run volumes. Because of this, preclarification of beer with a centrifuge is not necessary. These solution features help breweries save on Capex and energy use, plus help avoid expensive maintenance costs. As a result, the brewery benefits 
in the areas of sustainability, quality, operation, and expenditures.


Fields of application

High gravity brewing technology can be used in cold blocks of breweries without having to invest in brewing house, tank or filter capacity.
