PENTAIR

In-Line Pinpoint Carbonator

The Pentair In-line Pinpoint Carbonator - PPC is primarily designed and suited for carbonation of beer, water, soda, wine, and other qualifying liquids but also used for nitrogen injection and wort aeration. The product portfolio has a full range of available capacities.

Bubbles in the beer are crucial, both in size and quality. The injector plates in the Pinpoint Carbonator are microporous and feature large contact on both sides. Beer passes across the plates as a thin liquid film, immediately receiving full CO2 saturation even at the lowest possible flow rate. The foam head remains stable over long periods; when the head does recede, CO2 saturation continues to hold at a high level. Residual CO2 is used for carbonation from the Ruh stage to 2.75 volumes - or, depending on flow requirements, up to 3.0 volumes - in one pass-through.

The immediate saturation and improved bonding provided by pinpoint carbonation reduce foaming during the transfer of beer from Ruh to storage and greatly reduce the beer’s air content.

Designed for highest CO2 saturation
The carbonator is designed for the highest CO2 saturation, and intimate gas-to-liquid bonding with micro-pore, stainless steel injector plates dispersing very fine, 5 – 9 micron size bubbles.

Some of the other advantages are listed below.

The Pentair PinPoint Carbonator is currently marketed in North, Central, and South America only.

  • No longer collapsed foam issues

Functional Description

Beer passes across the plates as a thin liquid film, immediately receiving full CO2 saturation even at the lowest possible flow rate. The foam head remains stable over long time periods; when the head does recede, CO2 saturation continues to hold at a high level. The immediate saturation and improved bonding provided by pinpoint carbonation reduce foaming during the transfer of beer from Ruh to storage and greatly reduce the beer’s air content.

The Pinpoint Carbonator is designed for highest CO2 saturation, and intimate gas-to-liquid bonding with micro-pore, stainless steel injector plates dispersing very fine, 5 – 9 micron size bubbles. The injector plates in the Pinpoint Carbonator are micro porous and feature large contact on both sides.

The product portfolio has a full range of available capacities (see technical specification). Smallest, model 1 inch (Size 25), ideally suited for craft breweries, microbreweries, small wineries and other small operations with low flow applications.


Fields of application

  • Beer, water, soda, wine
