Purpose-Built Centrifuges for Craft Brewers
Efficient brewery operation and consistent, high-quality production is more important than ever. If you’re not experiencing this, the issue might be that your fermenters are tied up by long sedimentation time or hop burn in your IPA. It usually comes down to consistency or production capacity:
- Good beer trapped in sediments, lost to dry-hopping, or lost during transfer.
- Fermenters are tied up too long by slow sedimentation processes or inefficient fermenter usage.
- Spotty filtration leading to incomplete yeast removal, bad batches, unpredictable quality, or poor shelf-life
The right beer centrifuge will minimize—or even eliminate—these drags on production and barriers to consistency.
But getting an actual beer centrifuge can be tricky. Most of the “beer centrifuges” sold to brewers are just general-use industrial separators. It’s probably an excellent centrifuge—for general industrial use. But if it isn’t designed for use in a brewery, it will struggle to meet the unique challenges that breweries face, especially when it comes to good beer’s oldest enemy: Oxygen.
The CentraSep DB Series centrifuges are purposefully-designed for craft breweries. Thanks to their mechanical hermetic seal design, they have the lowest dissolved oxygen pickup on the market: usually zero ppb (parts per billion), and guaranteed to be less than 10 ppb. You won’t need deoxygenated water or inert gas to charge the centrifuge, and you won’t risk losing carbonation, aromas, or flavors.
The CentraSep DB separator comes in 10 model sizes. Each comes with optional add-ons to make it manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic. They’re ready to be tailor-fitted to your beer styles, facility size, and workflow. That flexibility also means that you can deploy a single CentraSep DB centrifuge on the hot side or in the cellar of your process at different times.
A Custom Centrifuge for Craft Brewers
Removing chill haze and producing bright brands can be a challenge for some separators. The CentraSep DB’s high bowl RPM and specific disc design deliver higher centrifugal force and a greater Equivalent Area of Separation. This design makes it much easier to meet the brightness and turbidity spec that your customers expect. This ability to dial in your turbidity also applies to your hazy brands, like a New England style IPA. The CentraSep DB centrifuge allows you to leave in the desired haze while getting rid of the particles that cause poor shelf-life and consistency.
The right separation technology doesn’t just protect flavors: it’s an investment that increases yield while improving quality. A purpose-built beer centrifuge can increase production by 30 to 50 percent. About a quarter of that is simply a matter of reclaiming beer bound up in the sediment that collects at the bottom of fermenter tanks. The rest comes from the decreased batch time: The right centrifuge system can hasten the brewing process by days or weeks without increasing your facility’s footprint. A CentraSep DB beer centrifuge usually pays for itself in 12 to 18 months.
Trucent also offers the ability to rent or lease a centrifuge. Whether you need a machine for a specific duration of time while brewing a particular beer, or it just makes sense for you to rent rather than purchase right now. Our team is dedicated to making it possible for you to reap the benefits of using a centrifuge in your process.
