Newsletter #4 – Expand capacity with combined yeast- and storage-tanks

The past year we, Bryggeriudstyr ApS, have sold a lot of combined yeast- and storage-tanks. All customers have been very impressed with the quality of the steel, welds and the finish of the products. And also, the tanks have been tailored to the match the customer’s premises and needs.

We provide the most offers on insulated cylinder tanks with conical bottom – the so-called called “Cylinder Conical Tank, CCT”.

Based on a standard, we adjust the tanks in cooperation with the supplier. For example, we have just ordered 2200-litre tanks for a customer of only 164 centimetres in height, so they could be squeezed into a low basement with two meters to the ceiling. On the other hand, the tanks became small and fat with 76 cm in width, so the customer needs to remove the windowsill to get them into the basement.

The tanks are configured with everything that is required to create a complete controlled fermentation- and warehousing-process. The tanks are made of AISI 304 stainless steel, have dual cooling jacket and rotating sprayball for cleaning. The tanks are all prepared for cooling.

We can deliver complete cooling-equipment together with the tanks, or you can choose a local fitter to install cooling to the tanks. Are you buying several tanks, we can provide piping for cooling along with the tanks for only a small amount of money. The control can be part of a complete brewery-setup based on Siemens-PLC or we can provide a simple control panel for the temperature. The last offer is available for a very small amount.

For example, one of our customers has installed three 400-litre tanks with a draught-beer-cooler and controls it with the simple control unit.

The tanks are available with a carbonation device (CO2 stone), if wanted.
