Ziemann International GmbH in Ludwigsburg debuted two new pieces of process equipment innovation at BrauBeviale 2014: “Ice Age” and “Lotus.”
Ice Age permits the regenerative cooling of brewery equipment. At the heart of the procedure is the storage of natural cold in the form of artificially generated snow, which produces cold water when melting, thus supplying breweries with cooling energy. In this regenerative way, Ice Age achieves a coefficient of performance (COP) that is 50 to 70 times higher than that achieved by a standard brewery cooling system, according to the company.
The new Lotus lauter tun design means that, given the required performance and wort quality, the source area per outlet can be extended up to at least 2.5 m2. This means that Lotus ideally meets the current requirements for a lauter tun.
As the international market for craft brewing is booming, a lauter tun must not only be able to process a variety of charges and original worts efficiently, but also have a “simple and smart” design. Apart from lauter tuns, Ziemann also offers proven mash filter technology.
Ziemann offers custom-made solutions for both micro, regional and large-scale breweries — from the brewhouse to the pressure tank cellar. The range of brewhouse offers ranges from malt supply via the grist mill, mash vessels, lauter tuns, mash filters, wort kettles and the whirlpool to the wort-cooling facilities. The cooling block is also fully covered, i.e. fermentation and storage tanks, pressure tanks, yeast and water tanks and the necessary process technology.
