Since 1965, Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions has been making some of the most innovative fluid management solutions in the world. The company makes plenty of pumps and hoses for the craft brewing industry, including Certa Sine pumps from MasoSine, Bredel hose pumps, Qdos metering pumps, Aflex hoses and more. Rigorously tested and engineered by a global network of specialists, the company’s solutions simplify and accelerate process equipment maintenance to help brewing companies remain in compliance with increasing regulations around hygiene and energy-efficiency. Brewers can remain at ease knowing they are delivering the best quality beer to their clients while also reducing their own cost and maintenance burdens.
WMFTS’ self-priming and dry running peristaltic and sinusoidal pumps are highly accurate while also retaining a high suction capability. All stages of the brewing process can be optimized with WMFTS’ pump solutions — from filtration to yeast handling to additive dosing.
Accurate and repeatable, the flow rate of WMFTS’ pumps is not adversely affected by fluid viscosity and pipework. The pump’s accuracy and efficiency ensures precision in dosing additives. This helps maximize the overall quality of products by ensuring the beer has a consistent aroma, taste, and look.
Maintenance and downtime are also reduced with WMFTS’ pump solutions. For example, its pumps accelerate system cleaning regimens, such as cleaning in place (CIP). Due to the accuracy of WMFTS’ pumps, dosing for the CIP process happens without error, ensuring optimum hygiene while safely containing chemicals. WMFTS’ Bredel range of hose pumps consistently handles abrasive fluids without wear and is ideal for use in the filtering process of brewing.
In the brewing process, once fermentation is complete, the yeast is recovered (harvested) for reuse. WMFTS pumps have high suction capabilities to draw the solid yeast from the tank without damage. The efficiency of the brewing process is achieved through increased uptime and reduced costs through lower energy usage, reduced product wastage and a simplified and accelerated harvesting process.
