AC : Automatic Control System

The automatic control system for the brewhouses Breworx

The BHAC is automatic control system for brewhouse with computer support and most operations controlled automatically – according to a specified program from a central control panel.

This control system cooperates with our brewhouses Breworx Classic, Breworx Lite-MEBreworx Tritank and Breworx Oppidum with usable volumes from 150 to 1000 liters.
AC automatic control system for the brewery includes:

  1. Automatically controlled hot process of brewing – fully automatized management of the entire processes of production beer wort
  2. Automatic system for time-control of temperatures in fermentation and maturation process
  3. Automatic system for control of media

Why choose AC system for brewing control ? Main reasons are :

  • Elimination of human errors – machine accurately and timely perform necessary tasks
  • Costs saving for owner – only one worker is necessary for manipulating in the brewery
  • Minimize the number of error conditions in the brewery – everything is still under control
  • Monitoring and registration of the production process into the computer memory
  • Minimization of requirements for constant operator attention – early reaction of machine
  • Stable quality of beer – standard manufacturing procedures are always observed
  • Six pre-programmed recipes – for production of the most known types of beer : Pils, Lager, Black, Weissenbeer, Ale, Special
  • Manual brewing mode – for production of all other types of beer
  • Special sanitation mode – for automatic cleaning,sanitizing and sterilization of the brewhouse, wort pipes, armatures and other brewery equipment

Description:

The badget AC level control system includes:

I. AC-1 Automatic control of hot process (optional accessories)

brewhouse-automatic-control-auv1-computerThe control unit is developed on PC platform with an operating system and control programme.

In the price of the automatization of two-vessel boiling equipment is contained a complete assembly of hardware included the pneu-actuator and the installation elements of the boiling equipment. The automatization also contains the opration system including the licence and beer-brewing software.

The software enables to change the receptures directly via the control panel or by installation via USB port. Software and boiling equipment are both designed to brew all of the world beers in decoction way and in infusion way as well. Also at decoction way, it is possible to brew on one or two mashes.

Process sequence as times, speed of pumps, individual volumes of water refilling or the overflow volumes, temperatures and flow rate of each media can operator set himself after entering the user password on the third level.

Automatically controlled brewhouse with controlling the most of brew operations by computer – according to a specified program from a central control panel ( touch screen ) . Brewer selects a recipe and start a program that controls the production process. Brewer checks the progress of procedures and performs laboratory tests , treats non-standard conditions and ensure the preparation of raw materials for the beer production process .

Manual operations before start of brewing :

  • Milling of malt (grinding)
  • Yielding of malt (mashing)

Automatical operations :

  • Heatings (precise temperature control according to selected recipe)
  • Decoction or infusion brew proceeding incl. all pumpings
  • Filtering (Lautering)
  • Boiling with hop + dosing of hop (adding of hop in a case before brewing)
  • Whirpooling (separation of wort from hops)
  • Cooling of young beer + saturation with air
  • Throwing of draff from lauter tun
  • Sanitisation of brewhouse and wort pipes (CIP process)

The control programme operates in czech, russian and english language.

II. AC-2 Automatic control of cold process and media (optional accessories)

brewhouse-automatic-control-auv1-valves-servoThe automatic control system AC-2 ensures automatic monitoring and controlling of the most important parts of beer fermentation and maturation process and operations with media.

  1. Automatic control of fermentation and maturation process (C-C tanks or open fermentation vats)
  • all temperatures control for fermentation and maturation process
  • setting of temperature timeplan for each tank (max. 90 days)
  • recording of temperature history for each tank (max. 90 days)
  • export data to websites
  • remote control and visualization
  • display of set and real temperatures in each tank
  • frost water and yeast protection
  • output on GSM gateway or ALARM
  • signal communication with the IWT – cooling od demand
  • vizualization of all processes on local LCD panel and remote computers

Manual operations

  • Sanitisation of tanks
  • Connection of CIP to tanks
  • Connection of tanks to heat exchanger
  • Add of yeast into tanks
  • Pumping of beer between vessels
  • Filtering and cleaning of filter
  • Racking

 

The control programme operates in czech, russian and english language.
