Beer market of Russia 2016: PET goes to draftThe beer market of Russia was warmed up by the hot summer, but the preparation for large volume PET prohibition has already impacted it negatively. The year was successful for Efes, MBC and regional producers; Carlsberg’s positions were virtually stable but AB InBev and Heineken lost a part of market share having focused on the sales profitability. The dynamics of big brands was determined by how much the companies were willing to keep the prices down or by their promotional activity. In this context the economy segment of the beer market and sales of inexpensive draft beer were increasing. The premium segment started shrinking due to license brands migrating to the mainstream segment.
Beer market of Vietnam: “Young tiger”Vietnam is one of the few big beer markets that continue to grow steadily. The beer popularity results from its low price, street consumption culture, and social motives. The outlooks of beer market as well as the Vietnamese economy inspire optimism, though the country is heavily dependent on export of goods. The state regulation can be called liberal, but the key risk for brewers is harbored in intensive rising of excise. Within TOP-4 there are two leaders, Sabeco and Heineken that grow at the fastest rates. The first company effectively employs its capacities, the second one focuses on marketing technologies. Almost 80% of the market belongs to century-old brands, yet the middle class and the youth are shifting their interest toward international premium that is growing taking share from the mainstream.

Beer market of Ukraine: big three losing weightIn 2016, fast increase of excises and resulting price spike stood in the way of the beer market stabilization. Most of competition (as well as mass sorts) moved to the economy segment of the market. The biggest losses were incurred by the leading three, especially Obolon, which again experienced pressure after reallocation of Efes market share. However, one should already speak of TOP-4. Group Oasis CIS (PPB) became a strong player and competitor to transnational companies. Besides the net sales of many regional medium breweries look rather good and 16-fold cost reduction wholesale trade license for craft brewers opens up a possibility of rapid growth in 2017.
Pentair presents extended hygienic components and valve range at drinktec 2013
Designed specifically for continuous operation on thin liquids like milk, wine, cream, beer, and wort,
Pentair’s hygienic centrifugal pumps offer a very gentle treatment of liquids with a viscosity up to 500
mPa s. The pumps can handle volume flow rates of 200 m3/h and discharge pressures up to 130 m.
Being EHEDG certified, Pentair’s hygienic pumps are the ideal solution for challenging and sensitive
product applications like milk and cream products, but also yeast, and are suitable for cleaning-in-place
(CIP). Features of the pump range include a high-quality stainless steel construction – all product
contact parts are stainless steel (DIN 1.4404/316L) – and a compact maintenance-friendly design.
Pentair’s hygienic pumps family includes the HRN series, a high-efficiency pump with a closed impeller
and a uniquely designed spiral housing, which is available in an EHEDG certified execution (HRN-E).
The sophisticated design of the series offers efficiencies of up to 80 percent and significantly reduces
operating costs compared to conventional technologies.
Pentair’s hygienic centrifugal pumps, available with standard electric motors and a variety of options
including heating jackets, frequency controllers and a wide range of seals, provide optimum adaptation
to specific requirements and maximum flexibility.
New Generation: Hygienic and Aseptic Valves & Tank tops
Maximum efficiency and security on process vessels such as fermentation tanks is available with
Pentair S?dmo’s compact Tank tops that feature air cleaning combinations with built-on vacuum and
security valves. In addition, a new generation of the IntelliTank Matrix, based on the DSV Complete
double seat valve range, is now available. The IntelliTank Matrix is a compact double seat valve system
for tank filling and emptying that is installed directly under the tank. Its short pipelines eliminate dead
space making the IntelliTank Matrix an interesting alternative to conventional valve manifolds.
Pentair S?dmo has extended its DSV Complete range with the addition of type D660, a cost and
function optimized double seat valve for CIP and other cleaning applications. In addition, the SVP Select
Control Valve, type “XL”, in the nominal widths DN 125 and DN 150 for high flow rates, has been added
to the valve program. Typical applications for control valves include flow rate control, liquid and gas
dosing, pressure regulation in liquid piping, buffer tank level control, and carbon dioxide dosing for
