3. Filtering tank (lauter tun)

Stainless steel vessel with a special sieve for filtering of wort, with a spherical or conical upper bottom. Filtering pipe and collector – Output pipeline is located below the reactive bottom, pipe diameter DN 80. Lautering reducers from the bottom 80/40 are driven into a circular pipe with a diameter of 80 mm.

Vacuum sensor. PICK pneumatic pressure sensor from SICK. Material AISI 316L. Pressure range -1bar to 1 bar. Output voltage 0-10V. The filtering system works on
the principle of calculating the hydrostatic pressure by volume in the take – off and hydrostatic pressure measured by a tachometer located in a circular pipeline below the reactive bottom of the tank. The system evaluates the difference that passes the PID controller information. The PLC controls the pump speed and the required flow rate so that the filter layer is not drawn to the bottom of the vessel. This system automatically secures the maximum rate of filtering.

We recommend : BH-OPT-ELS60 Electric lift of the knife-stirrer in the filtering tank … see the options bellow.

The special customization of the wort brew machines Oppidum 6000 – the electric lift of the knife-stirrer in the filtering tank (lauter tun). This customization of the wort brew machine allows you very variable setting position of the knife-stirrer inside the filtering tank. This is useful during filtration of wort through the malt grain sediment when some stronger beer types are produced. The lifting of the knife-stirrer ensures you to speed up the process of souring wort. This is important to avoid excessive oxidation of the wort during the filtering process.

The lifting mechanism is ensured by the electric actuator. Operator of the wort brew machine can change a position of the knife-stirrer in any position as he needs at the moment. The lifting of the knife stirrer is solved by system of fixed shafts of 35mm diameter located in the main hollow rotary shaft. The lifting mechanism is located underneath the gearbox at the bottom parts of the tank. The maximum allowable pressure is 800kg. Stroke of the stirrer is up to 200 mm. Positions of the knife stirrer secures the positioner that is part of the electric actuator. Output voltage of the positioner is 0-10V. Display of the position of the knife stirrer is on the LCD monitor. Lifting time is 40 sec.

The wet malt grains ejection from the tank is solved by a lower ejection fitted with a pneumatic sliding flap for the movement of the malt grains that is ensured by the reverse movement of the knife stirrer. Pneumatic sliding flap is made from material AISI 304 DN 250. The wet malt grains are taken by the screw conveyor transporting the waste material out from the brewery to a lorry car or waste vessel which is prepared under the conveyor.

Optional accessories and upgrades

 

Recommended options and additional equipment for improvement of the wort brew machine Breworx Oppidum 6000 Prices (EUR)
| ELS : Electric lift of the knife-stirrer in the filtering tank (lifting up to 200mm)

This customization of the wort brew machine allows you very variable setting position of the knife-stirrer inside the filtering tank. This is useful during filtration of wort through the malt grain sediment when some stronger beer types are produced. The lifting of the knife-stirrer ensures you to speed up the process of souring wort. This is important to avoid excessive oxidation of the wort during the filtering process.

| EFT : Enlarged filtering tanks to production of stronger beer types with EPM (plato) higher than 15°

The special customization – the filtration tank with diameter by 20% larger than standard version of the (lauter tun). This customization of the wort brew machine allows production of beer types with EPM (Plato) from 12 to 17 (Our brew machines with the standard filtering tank are optimalized for production beer types with EPM (Plato) from 10 to 15). According to customer´s requirements we can produce the wort brew machines with more larger diameters as well (the price will be calculated individually).

Other recommended equipment :

  • WCS – Wort cooling system – equipment for controlled hot wort cooling to the fermentation temperature (7°C or 25°C depending on the type of beer)
  • MMG – Mill of malt grains – equipment for grinding of malt – necessary only for production of wort from malt (not necessary for production of wort from malt extract)
  • LEA – Laboratory equipment and accessories – saccharimeters, alcoholmeters, graduated cylinder, wooden rod for manual level measurement
  • HWT – Heat water tank – An insulated stainless steel tank with electrical and steam hesters for heating water and storage of heated water which is heated during the wort cooling process. This hot water is needed for some operations in the brewery like production of wort, cleaning of brewing tanks and fermentation tanks etc..
  • ITWT – Tank for cold treated water – Insulated stainless steel tank for cooling, storaging and pumping of ice water which is necessary in wort cooling process. This treated drinking ice water is heated in wort cooling process and becomes then hot water storaged in HWT. If is not available drinking water with requested chemical composition, it is needed to use some equipment for water treatment – WTS. Available for breweries with one-level wort cooling system – we recomment it for brewhouses with production capacity above 1000 liters of wort per one brew, instead ICWT tank.
  • ICWT – Tank for cooling ice water – insulated vessel for cooling, storaging and pumping of ice water which is necessary in cooling of wort, and for cooling all beer production tanks and fermenters. This treated drinking water works as a cooling media during the cooling process of wort and then is comming back to the storage tank where is cooled down again to next use. Available for breweries with two-level wort cooling system – we recommend it for breweries with production capacity maximally 1000 liters of wort per one brew instead the ITWT tank.
  • WTS – Water treatment systems – an equipment for treating of cold water, if water does not suit requested chemical composition for production of choosed type of beer. It is always needed a chemical analysis for assessment of suitable water chemical composition before delivery of a brewery..
