Before fermentation the original wort must be cooled to between approximately 10°C to 20°C. Cooling usually takes place with water, an alternative cooling medium or with a mechanical cooling device.
Instead of mechanical cooling, the cold content of a cryogenic gas can be used to cool the original wort. Liquid carbon dioxide is usually used for this purpose.
- Low energy costs
- Reduced CO2-emissions
- Simple integration into existing system
- Avoids ice and fog
- No condensation on gas lines
- Constant gas temperature
Messer provides the Ecovap-evaporator for an environmentally friendly and cost-effective utilisation of the cold content of cryogenic gases.
