Separation for your brewery - webinar, 24th September

A centrifuge, or a separator, is a great tool that can help you to increase the profit from every batch of beer from your brewery and at the same time improve the quality of your beer. In this webinar our experts Joakim Gustafsson and Fernando Jimenez will introduce you to separation technology and explain how it is used in beer breweries. You will get to know why more and more brewers pay attention to beer centrifuges. You will find out, how separation can help you increase yield, improve beer quality and profitability.

Brew 20: Separation innovation for craft brewers

Alfa Laval invented the world’s first disc stack centrifuge in 1883, and we have been constantly re-innovating separation technology ever since. All of this experience has gone into Brew 20, a centrifuge engineered specifically to meet the needs of brewpubs and small microbreweries. Compact and energy-efficient, Brew 20 is easy to operate with minimal maintenance needs – giving you a low total cost of ownership. The module comes ready to install on a robust plug-and-play skid, and it can be delivered within just 12-16 weeks. Brew 20 also represents a smart solution for enhancing quality and flavour, thanks to innovations like the Axial-Hermetic Seal. This unique feature makes it possible to achieve dissolved oxygen pickup levels under 10 ppb, without requiring expensive CO2 or deaerated water.

Questions about using a centrifuge in your brewery?

Many smaller craft brewers still assume that centrifuges are too costly or offer little benefit for clarifying beer. But today’s modular disc stack systems, optimized for small breweries, now require only a small investment compared to conventional tank settling, and provide faster solids separation without the same high product losses. Additionally, they provide better retention of aromatics and volatiles than filtration systems. The result is a solution that offers long-term savings and superior beer quality.
