Serving tanks (Bright beer tanks) vertical, insulated, glycol

SERVING TANKS / BRIGHT BEER TANKS – preparing beer for consumption and distribution

Vertical serving tanks/bright beer tanks , insulated , double-jacked , cooled by glycol or water

Serving bright beer tanks vertikal liquid cooledVertical serving bright beer tanks isolatedAfter completion of the maturation phase of production in maturation tanks or cylindrical-conical tanks ( depending on the selected fermentation technology ) the beer is tapped into the serving tanks. Serving tanks, also called bright beer tanks, are vessels structurally identical to maturation 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 tapping beer ( in the adjacent restaurant ), it is necessary to keep beer under a higher pressure than is used in maturation tanks.

Serving tanks / Bright beer tanks that are manufactured and supplied for our breweries with the same construction as the maturation tanks. It means that any maturation tank can also be used as a serving and vice versa. This solution simplifies and accelerates the process of beer production because it is not necessary to pump the beer from storage tank to serving tank just simply by increasing the pressure in the maturation tank we can change its function  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 sale networks . After completion of maturation , the beer is filtered and subsequently tapped into serving tanks.

In serving tank is the beer left to calm down, for several hours or days, without further intervention. After increasing pressure is the beer from the serving tank subsequently tapped into transport containers with 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 vertical

Tanks in the brewery are “standing”. Easy for cleaning and sanitation and easy access to the tanks from all sides.
The disadvantage is the space requirement of beer cellar and its height. Vertical maturation tanks are standard in breweries and this concept is preferred where small space has not fundamental limitations.

We produce insulated maturating tanks in several standard product lines



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


Properties wider tanks with small height of cylindrical part:

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


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