In the food and drink industry, the sector of brewery is a very important axe: beer is the elaborated drink most appreciated after tea. For beer and other drinks, based or not on alcohol, there are several steps in their process of elaboration.
During these different phases, it is necessary to cool down hot liquids. For example, in the brewery industry, after obtaining beer wort, it comes necessary to cool down the mixture in fermentation containers.
So heat exchangers become very useful in these phases of production.
Why install a heat exchanger in a brewery?
First of all, food industry is very demanding concerning laws and regulations. It is necessary to assure perfect hygiene and sterility of the heat exchangers involved in production.
That is why our Weplex® heat exchangers are specially adapted for juice heating and cooling and are very performant for heavy fluids charged in suspended particles. In fact, Labbe Process Equipment has developed these heat exchangers taking into account the different constraints of this industry. That is why its performances are higher than those of classical tubular heat exchangers.
Moreover, Weplex® welded plates heat exchangers are also used for syrups issued from molasses and crystallization.
Weplex® welded plates heat exchangers are very compact and thus very easy to install and clean.
