The automatic control system for the brewhouses Breworx Classic, Lite-ME, Tritank
The BHAC2 is automatic control system for brewhouse with computer support and most operations controlled automatically – according to a specified program from a central control panel.
This control system cooperates with our brewhouses Breworx Classic, Breworx Lite-ME and Breworx Tritank with usable volumes from 1200 to 5000 liters.
BHAC2 automatic control system for the brewery includes:
- Automatically controlled hot process of brewing – fully automatized management of the entire processes of production beer wort
- Automatic system for time-control of temperatures in fermentation and maturation process
- Automatic system for control of media
The control system may work in two modes :
- Fully manual control
- Semi-automatic control
The operator can freely switch between the two modes.
Control of operations and processes when the automatic control system is choosed :
|Automatic processes||Manual processes|
|Filling the mashing tank and filtering tank with water||Grinding the malt|
|Heating cycles||Malt dosing|
|Pauses for saccharization|
|Hops brewing + hops dosing (the hop granulat must be ready in the hops dosers before the process)|
|Swirling the wort|
|Wort cooling and aeration|
|Throwing out of malt residues from the filtering tank|
|Rinsing and sanitation of the brewhouse|
Why choose AC system for brewing control ? Main reasons are :
- 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
- Minimize the number of error conditions in the brewery – everything is still under control
- Monitoring and registration of the production process into the computer memory
- Minimization of requirements for constant operator attention – early reaction of machine
- Stable quality of beer – standard manufacturing procedures are always observed
- 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 types of beer
- Special sanitation mode – for automatic cleaning,sanitizing and sterilization of the brewhouse, wort pipes, armatures and other brewery equipment
The control unit is developed on PC platform with an operating system and control programme.
In the price of the automatization of two-vessel boiling equipment is contained a complete assembly of hardware included the pneu-actuator and the installation elements of the boiling equipment. The automatization also contains the opration system including the licence and beer-brewing software.
The software enables to change the receptures directly via the control panel or by installation via USB port. Software and boiling equipment are both designed to brew all of the world beers in decoction way and in infusion way as well. Also at decoction way, it is possible to brew on one or two mashes.
Process sequence as times, speed of pumps, 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.
Automatically controlled brewhouse with controlling the most of brew operations by computer – according to a specified program from a central control panel ( touch screen ) . Brewer selects a recipe and start a program that controls the production process. Brewer checks the progress of procedures and performs laboratory tests , treats non-standard conditions and ensure the preparation of raw materials for the beer production process .
Manual operations before start of brewing :
- Milling of malt (grinding)
- Yielding of malt (mashing)
Automatical operations :
- Heatings (precise temperature control according to selected recipe)
- Decoction or infusion brew proceeding incl. all pumpings
- Filtering (Lautering)
- Boiling with hop + dosing of hop (adding of hop in a case before brewing)
- Whirpooling (separation of wort from hops)
- Cooling of young beer + saturation with air
- Throwing of draff from wort filtration tank
- Sanitisation of brewhouse and wort pipes (CIP process)
The control programme operates in czech, russian and english language.
