High Gravity Brewing is a standard procedure in modern brewing. Precise adjustment of extract or alcohol concentration is performed directly after filtration rather than in the brewhouse. It allows increasing the final output with the existing brew capacity and gives high flexibility in brewing different types of beer.
Designed for fast and accurate dosage of deaerated water, DENWEL provides a fully automated solution for continuous blending ensuring consistent product quality.
An inline density / sound velocity analyzer continuously monitors the original gravity and alcohol concentration of the standardized beer. Two parallel valves of different size control accurate dosing of deaerated water. Special software algorithm regulates both control valves simultaneously anticipating their required position: the coarse valve acts for the fine valve so that the latter never remains in any end-position but can do fine tuning in its most efficient range. This results in very fast regulation and most precise adjustment in just one process step.
Two electromagnetic flow meters measure the volumes of high gravity beer and deaerated water. If the resulting ratio is not within expected range, the system sends a warning or stops. The dosing of deaerated water is typically situated between buffer tank and beer pump after the filtration. The beer pump reliably blends the two liquids and therefore no additional mixer is necessary. Pressure drop can be avoided and superior sanitary design maintained.
The system is PLC controlled and has automatic modes for continuous blending, carbonation and CIP.
The unit comes assembled on a compact frame, tested to be rapidly put into operation. Proven components guarantee reliability and extended lifetime. The modular layout allows easy integration into production and efficient combination with other process units.
