In breweries, disk stack centrifuges secrete trub from wort, clarify green beer, adjust the number of yeast cells in wheat beer, facilitate filtration by separating yeast cells, and also clean CIP bases.
Flottweg disk stack centrifuges are especially developed for breweries. They comply with a high hygienic standard and are completely CIP capable. Very soft products like fine trub or yeast cells require both: gentle acceleration in the rotor distributor as well as high centrifugal force for separation. The Flottweg „Soft Shot“ discharge system ejects the separated trub or/and the yeast from the bowl at full speed, thus performing an accurate partial discharge. As the separated solids are compacted, loss of beer or wort can be minimized.
- The Flottweg hydro hermetic design provides perfect sealing of the product from the atmosphere in order to prevent oxygen pick-up; mechanical seal elements are not necessary.
- Discharge control via turbidity measurement provides discharge at the ideal moment and minimizes losses of precious beer and/or wort.
- Flottweg disk stack centrifuges feature a smooth belt drive. The „Soft Shot“ system works without making loud noise. Flottweg disk stack centrifuges can be installed in production facilities without sound insulation.
