GEA at the BrauBeviale 2015: Innovative technologies and system solutions for the beverage industry
Optimizing brewing technology starts right at the beginning of the process. The GEA MILLSTAR™ system combines the advantages of both dry and wet milling in a single system. This ensures the highest quality of mash and wort for a brewing line from the start, with maximum economic efficiency.
GEA's ECO-FERM™ system for jet mixing in fermentation tanks has been specially developed to improve fermentation performance and homogeneity by supporting the natural upward flow process in a vertical fermenter, especially in slim fermenters. The innovative system enables significant time-savings during fermentation – with no compromise on beer quality.
Especially for the growing craft beer market, GEA presents a separator skid, which is available in 4 sizes, for even more efficient beer clarification. The craft brewer produces 5 to 10 % more beer per batch using the same amount of raw material and water – without additional operational costs. Another advantage is the reduced clarification and maturation time of the beer, which, among other things, enables a significant reduction of the production time. The compact and ready-for-use plug & brew skids are suitable for any brewery and delivered pre-piped and completely assembled.
A further highlight is the new generation of Freeze Concentrators. GEA IceCon® reduces capital costs by around 50 % and operational costs of the freeze concentration process up to 40 %. This reduction creates new opportunities making this high-quality process more widely accessible to beer, cider and wine producers across the globe.
