Wort Cooler

With wort cooling we change over from the hot to the cold phase of beer production

After separation of hot trub the wort temperature is lowered to the required pitching temperature. From the physical point of view, cooling is an easy process. In practice, however, breweries can choose different methods of heat transfer.

Economical cooling in one stage

Single-stage wort cooling with pre-cooled brewing water is considered as state-of-the-art. With this type of wort cooling the wort is cooled to the pitching temperature in one pass. So all the heat used is returned to the brewing process. Depending on the number of brews per day, the brewing water is pre-cooled continuously or at certain times using low electricity tariffs. Pre-cooling of brewing water is performed with cooling brine, alcohol-water mixture or by direct evaporation of the refrigerant. Besides brewing liquor cooling we can also offer two alternative systems: The water storage system is recommended when operated with direct evaporation. Direct evaporation is preferable for a high number of brews per day. In this case continuous cooling without storage is necessary. Of course, this is done fully automatically – and very effectively at high evaporation temperatures – in a semi or fully welded plate and frame evaporator. However, to manage energy and water surplus two-stage wort cooling was common practice. In the first stage of the plate and frame heat exchanger, part of the thermal energy of the wort was transferred to the brewing water. In this way preheated brewing water was made available for the next brew. In the second stage, chilled water, cooling brines, alcohol-water mixtures or direct evaporation of the refrigerant were used to lower the temperature of the wort to pitching temperature.

Dear partners,

We would like to inform you that in the framework of preventive measures aimed at effectively addressing the spread of “Covid19” disease and in accordance with the National Public Health Organization guidelines (https://eody.gov.gr/), our company is committed to ensure public health, safety of its partners and employees. Therefore we have recommended the fulfillment of our employees' tasks through teleworking.

The duration of this measure is initially set from 17.03.2020 to 30.04.2020

The design provides full operation, but due to special conditions, delays in specific tasks or communication may occur.

Our company will strive to keep its operation uninterrupted and secure by serving its clientele in ways and timeframes that are judged possible.

We thank you for understanding and we remain at your disposal.

Αγαπητοί Συνεργάτες,

Θα θέλαμε να σας ενημερώσουμε ότι στο πλαίσιο μέτρων πρόληψης με σκοπό την αποτελεσματική αντιμετώπιση εξάπλωσης του κορωνοιού και σύμφωνα με τις οδηγίες υγιεινής & ασφάλειας που έχει ορίσει ο ΕΟΔΥ (https://eody.gov.gr/), η εταιρία μας για να διασφαλίσει τη δημόσια υγεία, την ασφάλεια των συνεργατών και των εργαζομένων της, συστήσαμε την εκπλήρωση των καθηκόντων των εργαζομένων μας, μέσω τηλεργασίας.

Η διάρκεια του συγκεκριμένου μέτρου ορίζεται αρχικά από τις 17.03.2020 έως τις 30.04.2020

Ο σχεδιασμός προβλέπει πλήρη λειτουργία, ωστόσο εξαιτίας των ειδικών συνθηκών, ενδέχεται να παρουσιαστούν καθυστερήσεις σε συγκεκριμένες εργασίες ή και στην επικοινωνία.

Η εταιρία μας θα προσπαθήσει να διατηρήσει αδιάληπτη και ασφαλή την λειτουργία της, εξυπηρετώντας το πελατολόγιο της με τρόπους και σε χρονικά πλαίσια που κρίνονται δυνατά.

Σας ευχαριστούμε για την κατανόηση και παραμένουμε στην διάθεση σας.
