THE USE OF THE AQUADRON IN BREWING
You guarantee flavour and
that it stays that
The AQUADRON produces Innowatech Anolyte, a biocide solution, at the point
of use on a just-in-time basis for reliable plant hygiene in the beverage industry.
The AQUADRON coupled with the HyClean
Concept can ensure and preserve the product quality of non-alcoholic
beverages starting from the raw materials through to the bottled product.
The application of INNOWATECH Anolyte® guarantees the complete
elimination of all harmful bacteria and yeasts within a short contact time.
The system has a number of uses within the production process -
Use of Anolyte from the wort procedure up to the bottling
Wort cooling, yeast tank, fermentation tank, storage and bright beer tanks
can all be disinfected with Anolyte supplied through the existing CIP-systems. The
simple integration of Anolyte into the existing system allows
very short installation times.
Comparison of CIP-Disinfection with bromo acetic acid, peracetic acid
As can be seen above, the use of Anolyte allows the reduction of water
and chemical use. As a result the cleaning and disinfection times are also
reduced by around 30%. Additional cleaning steps needed to remove scale
(beerstone) layers in the tanks are also redundant. In addition storage, fresh
water tanks and borehole water can be included in the disinfection process.
Filling and packing
After the long production process, packaging is the final step where the
quality can be compromised by technical deficiencies or inadequate hygiene/
disinfection, allowing secondary infection.
With common disinfection methods, including filler flushing, it is practically
impossible to keep the filler germ-free during the running production. With the HyCleanConcept and the targeted use of Anolyte
it is possible to maximise microbiological safety during the bottling without
any interruption to the production run. This means that economically unwelcome
stop times caused by the emptying and filling of the filling plant during
line disinfection can be avoided.
Comparison of Filler flushing and the HyClean Concept
The HyClean Concept is undertaken during normal operation,
this increases the production performance of the filling plant. Our experience in Europe is that a one minute stop of the filler plant
costs about €20.
Use of Anolyte in well water and mains water
Adding Anolyte to the water supply, eliminates
all relevant germs, breaks down existing biolms and effectively prevents
the formation of new biolms!
