Control panel :

How looks the automatic control panel ? This is a main menu. Choose one from several beer types or other functions, fill stackes by all required raw materials, then click and let the computer to brew your beer :

Special functions :

  • CIP function – the special mode ensures cleaning, sanitization and sterilization of the brewhouse, wort pipes and optionally also other devices in the brewery

 

Why only the automatic control system for this wort brew machine is available ?

The OPPIDUM machine produces several batches of wort at the same time. This is extremelly demanding of attention, concentration and speed of brewer work as well as rapid and concurrent monitoring and evaluation of rapidly changing data from many sensors . Only sophistical system with a computer and many electronic sensors of the automatic control system are able to provide the properly timing of all brewing phases, the right temperatures in the right time, the right speed of pumps and motors, without damage of wort, it all controlled continuously during up to six paralelly worked production processes.

 

brewhouse-automatic-control-auv3-control-panelThere are also other good reasons why use the automatic control system :

  • Elimination of human errors – machine accurately and timely perform necessary tasks
  • Costs saving for owner – only one worker is necessary for manipulating in the brewery
  • Minimization the number of error conditions in the brewery – everything is still under control of the computer
  • Monitoring and registration– all statuses and operations of the wort production process are stored in the computer memory
  • Minimization of requirements – this system does not require extremelly attention of human operator – There is always ensured an early reaction of machine
  • Stable quality of beer – standard manufacturing procedures are always observed in order to ensure always the same maximum possible quality of beer
  • Six pre-programmed recipes – for production of the most known types of beer : Pils, Lager, Black, Weissenbeer, Ale, Special
  • Manual brewing mode – for production of all other different types of beer that pre-programed system does not know
  • Special sanitation mode – for automatic cleaning, sanitizing and sterilization of all tanks, pipes, armatures and other brewery equipment

 

 


 

Technical specification and functions

 

The control unit is developed on PC platform with an operating system and control programme.

In the price of the automatization of the boiling equipment is contained a complete assembly of hardware included the pneumatic actuators and the installation elements of the boiling equipment. The automatization also contains the operation system including the licence and software for an automatic production of wort using this machine.

The software enables to change the recipes for brewing more different kinds of beer directly via the control panel or by installation via USB port. Software and boiling equipment are both designed to brew all of the world known beers in decoction way or in infusion way as well. Also at decoction way, it is possible to brew on one or two mashing cycles.

Process sequences as times, speed of pumps, timing of all phases, temperature measuring and control etc.

Individual volumes of water refilling or the overflow volumes, temperatures and flow rate of each media can operator set himself after entering the user password on the third level.

Automatic control of the wort production machine with controlling the most of steps and operations by computer – according to a specified program from a central control panel ( touch screen ) . An human operator selects a recipe and starts a program that controls all production processes. The operator checks the progress of all procedures and performs laboratory tests , solves non-standard conditions and ensure the preparation of raw materials for the wort production process .

 

Manual operations before start of brewing :

  • Preparation of malt using a mill machine (milled malt grist)
  • Mixing of malt – sprinkling malt grist into warm water (mashing proces)

 

Automatical operations :

  • Heating of tanks and timing (precise temperature gradients and time control all phases according to selected recipe)
  • Decoction or infusion brew process including control of all pumps
  • Filtering of wort (Lautering wort process)
  • Boiling of wort with hops + dosing of hops (automatic adding of hops into wort during boiling)
  • Whirpooling (separation of wort from hops using a centrifugal rotation)
  • Cooling of young beer and saturation of wort with air
  • Throwing out of rests malt from the filtration tank
  • Sanitisation of all pipes (CIP process)

The control programme operates in Czech, Russian and English language. We can customize the program also for other languages.
