Brew series

High quality separation equipment especially designed for beer brewing industry

Alfa Laval disc stack 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.

High beer separation efficiency combined with energy efficient operation

  • Centrifugation provides breweries with swift beer clarification with no loss of aroma or CO2
  • Increased clarification capacity: reduced fouling of filters with preclarification
  • High efficiency beer separation enables quicker turnover of fermentation tanks
  • Reduced product losses: beer centrifugation results in more concentrated solids compared to gravity settling
  • Patented beer brewing equipment and hermetic design leads to low to zero oxygen pick up

Clarification through separation helps increase the stability of the final beer. Our beer brewing equipment ensures gentle product handling through the utilisation of a unique hermetic feed design. Turbidity measurement system and bowl speed adjustment functionality allows to achieve solids free crystal clear beers as well as hazy beers.

Alfa Laval is one the major global supplies of high-quality separation equipment to the brewing industry. Our centrifuges have proved crucial in enabling breweries around the world to achieve higher yields and greater efficiency, as well as in helping them meet changing demand patterns from consumers while maintaining profitability. Beer brewery centrifuges from Alfa Laval ensure minimal levels of oxygen pick-up during passage through the separator, which is a major quality requirement for brewers. Hygiene is also a prime focus in all aspects of the design of our brewery centrifuges.

The Brew series beer centrifuges are all used within the following application steps in the brewing process:

  • pre-clarification
  • green beer separation
  • hot wort separation
  • beer recovery

With features and options such as our fully hermetic seal that ensures minimal oxygen pick-up in the clarified liquid, SmartEject self-triggering system, which provides intermittent discharge of solids that have a high dry matter content, a specially designed variable frequency drive (VFD) system provides benefits that include low starting current and a short time power supply, and much more, the brewer can customize the separator performance and capacity to a given application task to the optimum yield.

How it works 

 beer centrifuge

 

The heavier solids phase is collected at the periphery of the bowl, where it is discharged intermittently via the centrifuge cyclone. The solids are discharged by a hydraulic system below the separation space in the bowl, which forces the sliding bowl bottom to drop down at suitable intervals, thus opening the solids ports at the periphery of the bowl.

I believe that craft brewing on a relatively small scale as we do, is still a traditional art creating distinctive characterful beers using the time-honoured brewing methods but coupled with elements of modern technology, such as the Brew 80.
