After completion of the maturing phase of production in maturing tanks or cylindrical-conical tanks ( depending on the selected fermentation technology ) the beer is tapped into the serving tanks. Service tanks, also called bright beer tanks, are the containers structurally identical to maturing tanks.

Their typical feature is the certification for pressure 3.0 bar , since for their main function, which is filling the transport packaging ( kegs, bottles ) and draught beer ( in the adjacent restaurant ), it is necessary to keep beer under a higher pressure than is used in maturing tanks.

Serving tanks / Bright beer tanks that are manufactured and supplied for our breweries are the same construction as the maturing tanks . It means that any maturing tank can also be used as a serving one and vice versa. This solution simplifies and accelerates the process of beer production because it is not necessary to pump beer from storage tanks to service tanks but simply by increasing the pressure in the maturing tank we can change its service in a few seconds without other interventions.

Function of the bright beer tank is gaining its importance especially in breweries, from which the beer is filtered and subsequently distributed in bottles and transport in barrels to other restaurants or to sale networks . After completion of maturation , the beer is filtered and subsequently tapped into serving tanks.

Here the beer is left to calm down, for several hours or days , without further intervention . From the serving tank after increased pressure in the tank it is subsequently tapped into shipping containers into the contra-pressure, to avoid the loss of the carbon dioxide from the beverage.

Characteristics of bright beer tanks in this version (serving tanks):

Serving tanks with double-jacket

More elaborate insulated tanks, chilled by glycol or ice water circulating in the double jacket duplicators. The modern way of cooling a lager cellar, which is standard in modern breweries. Besides the apparent disadvantage of the higher initial cost, these tanks have only advantages: low cost of operation of cooling (cooling only beer, not space), modesty at the place of installation (no need to insulate storage cellar, tanks can be in any room), comfortable operation (in the area with tanks the temperature may be normal), possibility to control maturation in each tank separately. The only suitable solution for automated management system of the brewery.

Serving tanks horizontal

The advantage is saving place. In the same area we can place a greater number of tanks, if they are arranged in the battery, ie in several rows one above another. The disadvantage is the difficult cleaning and sanitation of the tanks stored too low or too high. Battery tanks are difficult to clean from outside – in inaccessible surfaces of tanks organic contaminants may accumulate and contaminate the produced beer.

We produce horizontal insulated maturation / bright beer tanks in several standard product lines :

maturation-tanks-2p-hor-product-line-tab

maturation-tanks-horizontal-breworx-product-line

Our wide range of produced bright beer tanks allows you to select the optimum tank dimensions as layout space.

Properties wider tanks with small lenght of cylindrical part:

  • Smaller heat transfer area, lower cooling effect.
  • They are less demanding in terms of height space.

Properties slender tanks with large height of cylindrical part:

  • Larger heat transfer area, the greater the cooling effect.
  • They are more demanding in terms of height space.

We also produce bright beer tanks other than the standard sizes . We can customize almost any tanks spatial dispositions and needs.
