Beer centrifuges

Brewery centrifuges are one of the first pieces of professional equipment that craft brewers invest in to scale up production. Alfa Laval beer centrifuges have a long history of enabling breweries around the world to achieve higher yields, meet shifts in demand and maintain profitability. Used in pre-clarification, green beer separation, hot wort separation and beer recovery, they ensure minimal levels of oxygen pick up during passage through the separator and the highest standards of hygiene.

Cleaning in Place

The Alfa Laval CIP station is a modularised skid-mounted plug-in unit for automated cleaning-in-place of brewery process installations, including process piping, tanks, filling machines and heat exchangers, among other systems. The cleaning regime is fully adjustable to that required by the target system in terms of cleaning time, temperature, pressure and flow.

Dry hopping

Alfa Laval has solutions for all main stages of the dry hopping process: pellet introduction, disaggregation, aroma and flavour extraction as well as removal of hop material. The Alfa Laval solutions for dry hopping are designed to help brewers produce distinctive beers while maximizing yield, minimizing process time, improving cleaning procedures and minimizing losses.

De-alcoholisation module

Alfa Laval’s fully automated Beer dealcoholizers are plug-in solutions that remove alcohol efficiently and gently in a single-pass to produce full-flavoured beers. They are designed to help brewers tap into fast-growing and profitable low and no-alcohol beer market as people search for healthier options. The modular design makes it simple to add non-alcoholic brewing capability without the need for major capital investment.
