Berliner-Kindl-Schultheiss-Brewery / Germany
In 2015, the Berliner-Kindl-Schultheiss-Brewery decided to modernize the young beer separator which has three turbidity measuring points (at the inlet, at the outlet, in the bypass). The goal was to incorporate reliable, low-maintenance turbidimeters. Those should guarantee optimum operation of the separator as well as allow a comparison of in-line and laboratory measurements.
SIGRIST turbidimeters TurbiGuard were chosen, with a connection to the control unit SICON M. These instruments supply EBC turbidity values which can be compared with those measured in the laboratory and cover a measuring range of up to 1000 EBC. This ensures smooth operation of the separator particularly during turbidity peaks from fresh fermentation tanks. SIGRIST TurbiGuards hardly need to be serviced.
The Berliner-Kindl-Schultheiss-Brewery was able to significantly reduce maintenance expenses at the separator during the first year.
