Beer, especially cellar beer, continues to grow in sales, which is good news for many breweries. Vacuum pumps are required at all stages of the brewing process, and a considerable number of types of vacuum pumps are used (including rotary vane vacuum pumps, oil-free piston vacuum pumps, Roots vacuum pumps, etc.). Since alcohol is ultimately used for drinking, hygiene is the most important criterion in the selection of vacuum pumps. Equally important is reliability. Every step of the brewing process is interrelated. Vacuum pump is very important in any process of production. If there is a little mistake, it may have a serious impact on the whole brewery.
The production of beer and cellar beer is divided into three steps: wheat germination, brewing and packaging. Germination of barley grains is the process of decomposition of barley grains into starch molecules. Brewing is to grind the germinated barley grains and then “saccharify” them to produce a fermentable mixture of sugar and water: malt juice. This process is very complex and requires a lot of skills.
Next, hops and spices are added to the wort and boiled together. When the wort is boiled, it is immediately fed into a heat exchanger and rapidly cooled to a temperature suitable for fermentation. When yeast is added, the mixture waits for fermentation. Fermentation time and temperature depend on whether the final product is beer or cellar beer. Once fermented, beer is put in barrels or transported to bottling or filling plants.
Behind the extremely simple description of the wheat germination and brewing process is the fact that at each stage, pumps are used to add ingredients, remove useless substances, and transport liquids from one area of the brewery to another. Then, there is a cleaning problem in the factory, that is, the cleaning agent must be added quantitatively to the treatment line and the cleaning fluid must be transported to the cleaning point.
The choice of vacuum pump has many different considerations. Product integrity assurance, pump purchase cost, life cycle value, energy consumption, safety and environmental factors. Wherever it is, energy elements need to be considered.
When choosing a new rotary vane vacuum pump, the factors that should be considered in the brewing industry include the speed and curve of vacuum pumping, the type of motor needed and the position it will be in one day.
To meet the requirements of breweries, EVP vacuum pump manufacturers should actively respond to customer needs, listen to the requests of end users, and provide solutions in the best processing plan as collaborators.
