Generally, the brewing equipment required for brewing in a small brewery mainly includes: raw material storage equipment, raw material preparation equipment, wort preparation equipment, beer fermentation equipment, beer filtration equipment, and beer storage equipment. Small breweries mostly use 500L-3500L equipment.

  1. Raw material storage equipment: malt storage equipment, ventilation equipment, conveying pipe bridge equipment, temperature and humidity control, weighing and measuring equipment, etc.
  1. Raw material preparation equipment: malt conveyor, malt crushing equipment, centrifugal dust collector, storage bin, automatic metering electronic scale, etc.
  1. Wort preparation equipment: gelatinization pot, saccharification pot, filter tank, wort boiling pot, sedimentation tank, rotary sedimentation tank, cooler, ice-water cold-water preparer, etc.
  1. Beer fermentation equipment: fermentation tank fermentation tank, fermentation temperature control equipment, yeast culture expansion tank, CIP washing and sterilization equipment, hot water alkaline water preparation equipment, etc.
  1. Beer filtration equipment: yeast centrifugal separator, filter cotton diatomite filter, rotary fine filter, biofilm filter, beer turbidity meter, deoxygenated water preparation equipment, high concentration dilution device, etc.
  1. Beer storage and distribution equipment: sake storage tanks, temperature control equipment, capacity measurement devices, distribution wine pumps and automatic control and metering devices.

Equipment needed to brew beer?

  1. Three systems are required for beer brewing: saccharification system, fermentation system and filling system. More finer: mashing system – raw material crushing, raw material mashing, wort filtration, wort boiling and clarification, wort cooling; fermentation system – yeast addition, fermentation tank fermentation, sake filtration (plate and frame filtration or candle filtration); Filling system – bottle washing machine (or can washing machine), filling machine, sterilization machine, labeling machine (with coding machine), etc.
  1. Beer brewing is a relatively expensive project. If it is a beer brewing system, it should be simplified a lot, such as canceling sake filtration, sterilization small glass beer filling machine, labeling machine, etc., but only fresh beer can be produced (because the produced wine is not sterilized).

What equipment is needed to produce beer?

  1. I also only understood a few days ago: raw material storage equipment – malt, rice storage silos, conveying pipe bridges, air dust collectors, temperature and humidity monitoring and control equipment, ventilation equipment, weighing and measuring equipment, etc.; raw material preparation equipment – malt, Rice conveyor, centrifugal dust collector, vibrating screen, malt, rice grinder, storage box, automatic metering electronic scale, etc.; Wort preparation equipment – gelatinization pot, saccharification pot, filter tank, wort boiling pot, Sedimentation tank, gyratory sedimentation tank, cooler, cold water preparation device, etc.; Beer fermentation equipment – fermentation tank/fermentation tank, fermentation temperature control equipment, yeast culture/expansion tank, CIP washing and sterilization equipment, hot water/alkaline water Preparation equipment, etc.; Beer filtration equipment – yeast centrifugal separator, filter cotton/diatomite filter, rotary fine filter, biofilm filter, beer turbidity meter, deoxygenated water preparation equipment, high concentration dilution device, etc. ; Beer storage and distribution equipment – sake storage tanks, temperature control equipment, capacity measurement devices, distribution wine pumps and automatic control and metering devices.
  1. Brewing is the first link of beer production, and brewing equipment is the most basic equipment for beer production. Whether it can produce qualified beer depends entirely on whether the brewing equipment can provide sufficient guarantee for the brewing process; brewing is a continuous process. For chemical operations, there are generally no redundant designs and backup configurations.
  1. Therefore, in addition to routine maintenance, it is usually necessary to carry out regular preventive overhaul or maintenance during the off-season of production and sales. l Beer packaging equipment, including: Bottling equipment – depalletizer, bottle unloader, box conveying bridge, bottle conveying bridge, bottle washing machine, filling machine, sterilization machine, labeling machine, cartoning machine, stacking machine, CIP washing and sterilizing equipment, as well as empty bottle detectors, liquid level detectors and printing equipment, etc; Case sealing machine, case transport bridge, stacker, CIP washing and sterilizing equipment, etc.; Barrel equipment – instant sterilizer, automatic barrel packing machine, hot water/alkaline water preparation equipment, CIP washing and sterilizing equipment, automatic weighing device , bucket bridge, bucket washing machine, etc.
  1. Packaging is the last process of beer production, the last link of product formation, and is related to the final realization of quality and value. Like brewing, packaging is also produced in a continuous process. There is no spare machine for packaging equipment. Any pause will cause great losses. However, the production capacity of packaging equipment is often greater than or equal to the brewing capacity, and the cycle of packaging production is shorter than that of brewing. The market sales will also have a direct impact on the packaging production plan. Therefore, in addition to the overhaul of the packaging equipment during the off-season shutdown period, the production interval can also be used to arrange small and medium repairs and item repairs.
  1. Auxiliary production equipment, including: Steam production and steam supply equipment – low-pressure industrial boilers, blast/induced fans, electric/steam feed pumps, water purification/softening equipment, fuel storage and supply equipment, steam supply and distribution adjustment devices, etc.; Electrical equipment – diesel generator sets, start-up control panels, feeder cabinets, cooling water circulation supply equipment, diesel supply and measurement devices, etc.; equipment, low-voltage incoming cabinets, power-generating incoming cabinets, low-voltage outgoing cabinets, capacitor compensation cabinets, etc.; Refrigeration and cooling equipment – various cooling evaporators, low-pressure circulating liquid storage tanks, refrigeration compressors, condensers, water cooling towers , high-pressure liquid ammonia storage tank, cooling liquid ammonia pump, auxiliary cooling water pump, etc.; Cooling water pump, etc; , air storage bag, CO2 compressor, CO2 dryer, auxiliary; Freon refrigeration compressor, CO2 condenser, evaporator, CO2 liquid storage tank, evaporator, auxiliary cooling water pump, etc.; Sewage treatment equipment – collecting well, lifting Pumps, regulating tanks, rotating filter grids, aeration tanks, surface aerators/blowers, sedimentation tanks, sludge return pumps, sludge thickening tanks, sludge dewatering machines, sludge storage hoppers, as well as pH measurement and control devices, dissolved oxygen measurement and control devices Wait.
  1. Auxiliary production equipment refers to primary energy supply equipment, secondary energy supply equipment and environmental protection equipment, which is the basic equipment that all factories including beer production enterprises must be equipped with.
  1. It is the power source of production, as important as the human heart, and must be kept functioning properly and safely every second. There is no doubt that it is the top priority of equipment maintenance in the whole plant, and mandatory planned maintenance and inspection tests are generally implemented.
  1. Because of its indispensability, at the initial stage of factory planning and construction, it has been designed for reliability and redundancy, and some spare machines and equipment are reserved, and most of them are single equipment. Therefore, the maintenance of auxiliary equipment can be planned. It can be carried out in stages and in batches, and can also be arranged during holidays, weekends or intermittent periods of production, with greater flexibility.
