ที่วัดแรงดันน้ำ reduces the water consumption for diafiltration throughout dealcoholization by as much as one hundred pc. The alcoholic base produced as a by-product of the filtration process can be utilized for manufacturing different beverages within the brewery, similar to hard seltzer.
GEA AromaPlus makes use of a filtration expertise with particular polymer membranes to separate alcohol and water from the opposite ingredients by means of reverse osmosis; these elements are essential for the aroma, color and turbidity of the ultimate product. Adding the brand new PRO know-how to the water-saving CO2 blow-out function and the selective membrane which is already carried out within the AromaPlus unit design, GEA saves greater than two thirds and as a lot as 100% of the contemporary water used for diafiltration.
“Our newest AromaPlus generation combines the trend in the course of zero.0% beer with the aim of reducing water in manufacturing,” says Ralf Scheibner, filtration expert at GEA, under whose management the GEA AromaPlus has been further developed. “In reality, a membrane course of requires plenty of water to flush out the alcohol. That is a matter for breweries with a restricted deoxygenized water availability. Our new PRO solution is a vital step for them in direction of contemporary water neutrality in production processes.”
The complete dealcoholization system GEA AromaPlus is mounted on a body. It contains the filtration modules and reverse osmosis membranes, pumps for media transfer and system strain build-up, the entire internal piping, a CIP dosing unit put in subsequent to the system, and the management tools required for semi-automated operation. – Image: GEA/Mike Henning.
While breweries need less recent water for the diafiltration step, the permeate leaving the system can be reused as a useful by-product. Due to its decrease quantity, it has a higher alcohol content and can due to this fact function a base for alcoholic blended drinks and newer beverages, such as exhausting seltzer, or may be reused within the brewery itself.
“The Corona pandemic showed that breweries whose production services offered the pliability to course of different beverages coped best with the drop in demand. GEA AromaPlus is a good example of how customers can gear their vegetation toward excessive demand dynamics,” says Scheibner. Originally designed for the dealcoholization of beer right down to 0.0%, the system may additionally be used used for different non-alcoholic beverages, similar to 0.0% cider.
