Brewhouse BREWORX OPPIDUM – Technical specifications and Price list

Construction of the Brewhouse BREWORX OPPIDUM

Industrial Minibrewery Breworx OppidumA powerful compact industrial brewhouse, designed for the production of all kinds of beer wort by the infusion and decoction way of mashing. It consists of six tanks, which together with the platform, stairs, a control panel, tubing and plate cooler make one block. The first tank acts as a mash basin, the second tank as the lauter tun, the third tank as the wort pan, the fourth tank as the whirlpool tun. The fifth and sixth are auxiliary tanks and can be installed separately from the brewhouse – a hot water tank with integrated heat exchanger for heating of water and a tank for ice water with integrated heat exchanger for cooling of water.
The heating of mash tank and wort boiler is provided by the steam generator, located separately from the brewhouse. Steam, coming into the side and bottom of the jacket of mash and wort pans, allows optimum heating rate of works or wort of 1 ° C / min. Straining is forced by a wort pump. The stirrer of the straining tank has a pneumatic vertical throw. The brewhouse has a control panel and a basin with a cooler for samples.

In the distribution system of the brewhouse there is a convertor (for a precise blending of hot and cold water), mash pump, wort pump, fresh wort pump, hot water pump, cold water pump, CIP pump and single-stage full stainless plate cooler of wort. Heat is recuperated by heating the water in the hot water tank during cooling the wort and the subsequent use in another process or sanitation is considerable saving of water and energy.

For the next stage of using heat from the brewing process, you can optionally provide by fitting the brewhouse with a capacitor of secondary steam with recuperation. Cooling of the wort is in the single plate cooler, which is the part of the brewhouse.

The solution of the brewhouse allows continuous production of up to 6 batches of beer at a time, as each production stage of brewing process takes place in a separate container. Thus it is possible to produce up to 6 brews for 24 hours in a continuous production process.

Brewhouse Description

czech-product-001The brewhouse is the main part of each brewery. It is a food machine whose primary function is the production of beer wort. The wort is an intermediate product. The next phase of the production cycle is fermentation and maturation of wort. This raises the final product – beer.

The singleblock brewhouse BREWORX OPPIDUM is a compact industrial machine which includes all necessary equipment to produce 1000-4000 liters of beer wort in one batch. It is six-vessels brewhouse wherein containers are  connected by common service platform. This we have achieved full functionality brewing while we retained the traditional design of the Czech type brewhouse which is ideal for producing of world-famous Czech type beer. However, this brewhouse is fully capable for manufacturing all types of beer, which is produced anywhere in the world. Thanks to that the brewhouse enables the production of up to 6 batches of wort (12.000 liters of wort) for 24 hours

 

The brewhouse BREWORX OPPIDUM  includes in standard :

  • mash kettle liters – vessel for mixing malt meal with warm water and splitting starch to form a sugar solution
  • mash kettle liters – kettle for boilingand for cleave the starch to form a sugar solution
  • filtration tank – (lauter tun) – for filtering of wort
  • wort storage tank – vessel for storage of wort and keeping its temperature
  • wort kettle – vessel for boiling of wort with hops
  • whirlpool tank – for separation of hop dregs from wort
  • laboratory sink
  • control panel
  • platform with steps
  • all pipes and wires connections
  • all mechanically and automatically controlled valves and armatures
  • electric switchboard cabinet
  • control computer (only version with AC control system)

Options and properties

 

Two raw materials for production of beer wort :

  • Classical raw materials : Malt + hops + drinking water + brewer’s yeast + (optionally other ingrediences)
  • Beer concentrates : Malt extract + hops + drinking water + brewer’s yeast + (optionally other ingrediences)

Four production capacities of the brewhouse :

  • 1000-4000 liters of beer wort per day – one batch for 12 hour – source raw materials are malt or malt extract, hops, drinking water and brewer’s yeast
  • 2000-8000 liters of beer wort per day – two batches for 24 hour – source raw materials are malt or malt extract, hops, drinking water and brewer’s yeast
  • 3000-12000 liters of beer wort per day – three batches for 12 hour – source raw materials are malt or malt extract, hops, drinking water and brewer’s yeast
  • 4000-16000 liters of beer wort per day – four batches for 24 hour – source raw materials are malt or malt extract, hops, drinking water and brewer’s yeast
  • 5000-20000 liters of beer wort per day – five batches for 24 hour – source raw materials are malt or malt extract, hops, drinking water and brewer’s yeast
  • 6000-24000 liters of beer wort per day – six batches for 24 hour – source raw materials are malt or malt extract, hops, drinking water and brewer’s yeast

 

Practical design :

BLMS – Brewlock mainholes system

  • SJ – Stainless steel J-design – all vessels are fully made of stainless steel AISI 304, arrangement of containers into the J-shaped
  • SC – Stainless steel C-design – all vessels are fully made of stainless steel AISI 304, arrangement of containers into the C-shaped
  • BLMS – Brewlock mainholes system – one hand lock-unlock system on all upper mainholes (with the glass design)

 

Powerful heating systems :

  • SH – Steam heating – the heating of kettel is performed by hot steam produced by steam generator. Heating by hot steam significantly speeds up the boiling process and it is better for the heated wort (no caramelization of malt). This system requires a connection of the brewhouse to electric, gas or pellet steam generator that is not included in the brewhouse (see an optional accessories).

 

Two available control systems :

  • MC – Manual control  manual control of a brewhouse, simple push-button control panel with basic control and sensing elements. Brewer manually adjustes pipeline routes, switching of motors and pumps, sets all temperatures and watches all times.
  • AC – Automatic control – brewhouse with computer support – the automatically controlled hot process of brewing – fully automatized management of the entire processes of production beer wort.

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

 

Recommendation :

We emphatically recommend choose the automatic brewhouse control system for this type of brewhouse and also the automatic control system for media and fermentation & maturation process !

The brewhouse Breworx Oppidum produces several batches of wort at the same time. This is very demanding of attention, concentration and speed of brewer work. Only computer brewhouse automatic control system always ensures the right brewing operations timing without damaged wort batches.

 

brewhouse-automatic-control-auv3-control-panel

The automatic control system for media and fermentation & maturation process allows automatic monitoring and controlling of the most important parts of beer fermentation and maturation process (from 1 to 30 tanks max) and operations with media.
