Alfa Laval - Brew series

Brew series

Alfa Laval beer centrifuges have a long history of enabling breweries around the world to achieve higher yields, meet shifts in demand and maintain profitability. Used in pre-clarification, green beer separation, hot wort separation and beer recovery, they ensure minimal levels of oxygen pick up during passage through the separator and the highest standards of hygiene.

High beer separation efficiency combined with energy efficient operation

  • Centrifugation provides breweries with swift beer clarification with no loss of aroma
  • Increased clarification capacity: reduced fouling of filters with preclarification
  • High efficiency beer separation enables quicker turnover of fermentation tanks
  • Reduced product losses: beer centrifugation results in more concentrated solids compared to gravity settling
  • Patented beer brewing equipment and hermetic design leads to low to zero oxygen pick up

Clarification through separation helps increase the stability of the final beer. Our beer brewing equipment ensures gentle product handling through the utilization of a unique hermetic design. Turbidity measurement system and bowl speed adjustment functionality allows to achieve solids free crystal clear beers as well as hazy beers
