The high demand of water in breweries makes it a significant cost and quality factor. Berkefeld understands these demands and can provide customized, technically-proven solutions.
Product water in breweries:
Brewing water - water as a raw material for the beer production.
The adjustment of the total hardness and carbonate hardness, the removal of nitrate, as well as the reduction of salinity (e.g. sodium chloride), are important considerations of brewing water treatment. Furthermore, we have the expertise to meet the special water quality demands of our customers, for example, such as for High Gravity Brewing.
Process water in breweries:
Water for cleaning, cooling, and as an energy source
CIP-systems, bottle cleaning machines, powerhouses and several other ancillary units require water with the most diverse quality. When planning a water treatment plant we consider these aspects. In collaboration with the customer we then develop distinct concepts for an economical system design.
Water recycling in breweries:
Water and rinse water recycling, modern regeneration methods, multilayer membrane systems, as well as automation and plant optimisation, are possible ways of reducing specific water consumption.
Waste water in breweries:
Waste water treatment using aerobic or anaerobic methods, generation of energy with waste water.
