Pre-configured sets of the CCT-M modular cylindrically-conical tanks with A2-recommended configuration.
Modular cylindrically-conical tanks CCT-M are very versatile products from our production portfolio that enable freely assemble the beer production tank to a configuration that is momentally required by user with respect to the intended use. That actual configuration of the tank can be changed at any time to any other configuration using expansion accessories and their combinations.
About the A2 configuration
The A2 configuration is a simplified set of the CCT-M tank (without a filling level indicator), that allows a controlled fermentation of beer, cider, wine, sparkling wine, must, lemonade and other similar beverages.
If the tank is equipped with a safety valve 0.5 bar (non-pressure vessels that do not require a certification by the European Directive PED 2014/68/EU), then the tank is suitable for the production of non-carbonized beverages (wines, ciders, soft drinks), but also for the main fermentation process of beer, cider or sparkling wines.
If the tank is equipped with a safety valve 3.0 bar and certified according to PED 2014/68/EU, it can be used for both fermentation and maturing process of all carbonizated beverages. The configuration 3.0 bar is suitable for controlled fermentation and maturation (under pressure) of all kinds of beer, cider and carbonized wines.
Equipment of the tank allows you to set the required pressure in the tank and also monitoring of the actual pressure, the fermentation process is indicated by bubbling CO2 gas through a fermentation lock with water – everything you need is included in the adjustable pressure valve with a manometer (optional part). For the production of non-fermented beverages the adjustable pressure valve is not necessary accessory (it may be excluded from the configuration).
The tank is also equipped with a fix or rotational washing ball with a pipe connection for easy cleaning and sanitizing tank using the CIP station (optional equipment).
The sample valve (optional part) allows collection of product samples to their analysis. The tank may be equipped with the carbonization candle (optional part) with porous stone to additional carbonation of beverages before the final bottling process, using the multiport MT-DN40. The same multiport may be used also for dry hopping, when some special types beer are produced in the fermentation tank. The port is also available for connection of the flotation machine (optional equipment) that is needed during the juice or cider production.
A placing of the input/output product valve and the tank draining valve very near of the tank prevents unwanted putrefaction of yeast inside uninsulated long pipes, as is the case in most fermentation tanks of other manufacturers.
The only difference in comparison with the configuration A1 : The tank in A2 configuration includes removale product input/output and draining pipes RO1 and DO1 for easy access to the tank with filling and draining hoses. Both of these pipes should be dismounted and cleaned before each use.
