Beer

Automation in the beer industry implies compliance with ISA 88, a set of stringent international regulations. Intelligent automation in the industry involves the use of MES systems with traceability of the outgoing products, production planning, integration with the laboratory, WMS systems and energy management systems.

We provide solutions for all components in beer brewing process:

  • Silos
  • Brewing
  • Fermentation room
  • Yeast department/Propagation
  • Filtration
  • Secondary fermentation/KZE
  • Bottling
  • Auxiliary services
  • CO2 recovery
  • Cooling
  • Water treatment
  • Water disposal
