Brew Like A Pro™

Brewery Equipment and Systems

1

ProBrew™ offers a comprehensive range of US crafted, and US or internationally manufactured equipment and systems to meet many of the brewing and production needs of any brewery.

Brewing is a blend of both art and process and we love the artistry that today’s brewers are creating. However, we also understand that the application of science, engineering, technology and automation can give brewers new tools to create even better works of art more efficiently, more economically, more consistently and with greater respect for our environment through unmatched sustainability.


Welcome to ProBrew where we continually focus our American engineering and technical resources and experience on developing the technology, innovation, tools and systems to make breweries better and help you “Brew Like A Pro™”.

BREWHOUSE TECHNOLOGY

Simple, cost effective and innovative

Brewhouse Technology Brewhouse Technology

The heart of the brewing process is an efficient and consistent brewhouse. At ProBrew we believe in the right amount of automation for a brewhouse allowing science to support the art of brewing.

Utilizing state-of-the-art, industrial PLC’s with smartly distributed I/O and automation allows ProBrew to deliver semi-automatic or fully brewhouses that produce repeatable, efficient and high-yield brews at the right price-point.


 

ProBrew offers and manufactures brewhouses ranging from 10bbl, 15bbl, 30bbl and up. Brewhouses are available in traditional 3-tank systems (Mash Tun, Lauter Tun, Whirlpool/Wort Kettle), 4-tank systems (Mash Tun, Lauter Tun, Whirlpool, Kettle) as well as in many other innovative and flexible configurations and styles. All are built of high-grade, 304 ANSI stainless steel, with many conventional US components from leading US suppliers.

 


 

All ProBrew brewhouses are upgradeable to utilize remote access and remote control software. This remote technology allows brewers and ProBrew service and support technicans to monitor critical brewing and cellar information and parameters remotely.

BREWERY CELLAR TECHNOLOGY

Brewery Technology at its Finest

3

ProBrew Fermentation and Brite tanks can be designed to perfectly match the output of a ProBrew brewhouse or may also be purchased individually to meet a brewery’s growing needs.

All ProBrew tanks and vessels are designed, engineered and manufactured to the highest quality standards in the industry. Critical parameters such as, stainless steel grade & quality, cooling rates, insulation, cladding and supporting structure are designed to protect product integrity, maximize production yield and efficiency, and save energy and money for our customers.


 

Brewery cellar design and function can be enhanced by utilizing the all-new, ProCellar tank and process automation system to deliver reliable and efficient cellar operation. The revolutionary ProCellar system automates, simplifies, and tracks all wort transfer from the brewhouse, beer transfer within the cellar, flow paths and flow rates, and continuously monitors fermenter temperatures & parameters, manages glycol control to reduce energy consumption, improves yield, reduces oxygen pickup, and integrates with a full range of filtration, separation, ProCarb™ inline carbonation and nitrogenation systems, and CIP On-Demand™ brewery CIP systems to deliver world-class efficiency, reliability, yield, and sustainability.


 

ProCellar eliminates the need for hoses, and thereby improves efficiency, yield, and overall cleanliness and safety. Never make a beer transfer mistake again by incorporating ProCellar automation. ProCellar is available in a wide range of configurations designed to suit new, existing, and expanding brewery cellars. ProCellar also offers remote access and control of all critical brewery cellar operations.

CARBONATION & NITROGENATION

BREWERY CARBONATION & NITROGENATION TECHNOLOGY

ProCarb is a state-of-the-art, industry leading in- line carbonation and nitrogenation system that delivers the most accurate, consistent, easiest and quickest in-line carbonation and nitorgenation in the industry.

ProCarb is based on extensive research, development and the science of how gases like CO2 and N2 are absorbed into beer. ProCarb combines this know-how with world-class control technology into a reliable, easy to use, carbonation and nitrogenation system. ProCarb can be used as a standalone, mobile, or integrated cost-effective system to precisely carbonate or nitrogenate beer, reduce carbonation times by over 500%, increase CO2 or N2 utilization, improve carbonation accuracy, save significant floor space compared to brite tanks, and increase brewery sustainability and reduce carbon footprint.

 


 

ProCarb employs unique gas injection and mixing technology to ensure CO2 or N2 is optimally dispersed and absorbed. Precise, PLC controlled electronic flow- meters measure gas and liquid flow rates to control very accurate injection-ratios and automatic pressure control guarantees that gas saturation pressures are always achieved for optimal product stability and quality.

 


 

Separation Systems

Fermentation tank bottoms can contain over 75% perfectly brewed beer, plus additional yield exists within unclarified trub. Today’s centrifugal separation systems and technologies can help breweries recapture on average an additional 5-10% yield! ProBrew supplied separation systems offer industry leading features such as:

 

  • Wide range of brewing applications: hot wort, cold wort, green beer, fermentation to brite tank, prefiltration/polishing, and beer recovery from trub
  • Comprehensive Allen-Bradly PLC controls, automation and instrumentation options – including flow, turbidity and O2 sensors
  • Duplex & Super Duplex Stainless Steel construction of main bowl parts
  • Best-in-class hermetic mechanical sealing technology which reduces oxygen pickup
  • Precision engineered, smoother, quieter, and lower maintenance operation

 

ProCarb Plus™

ProBrew is pleased to introduce ProCarb Plus™ – a first of its kind, patent pending integrated ProCarb and centrifugal separation system. This revolutionary, proven process of carbonating or nitrogenating within the centrifuge offers significant benefits such as space savings, energy savings, tighter process control, precise and stable carbonation and nitrogenation, and a significant reduction of potential oxygen pickup within the separator or later in the cellaring process.


 

Patented utilization of the centrifugal separator for gas injection and absorption produces unmatched carbonation and nitrogenation in the brewing industry. Centrifugal forces equivalent to 17 G-force presents a tightly compressed gas particle into the beer which results in instant and complete absorption. The elevated pressure achieved during the separation and gasification process within the centrifugal separator exceeds normal gas saturation pressures, thereby assuring that the gas is fully dissolved in solution.

BOTTLE, CAN AND KEG FILLING

Bottle, Can & Keg Filling Bottle, Can & Keg Filling

ProFill offers Bottle and Can models with the following standard features & technologies:

Pre-Evacuation for Minimized Air Pickup During Filling. ProFill Bottle fillers incorporate an integrated vacuum assisted air pre-evacuation system that pulls residual air and therefore oxygen from the bottle once it is sealed to the filling valve. This pre-evacuation technology immediately reduces air and oxygen content in the bottle.

 


 

ProFill Bottle and Can fillers are true Isobaric (counter- pressure-gravity) style fillers that also counter-pressures the bottle or can with CO2 prior to product filling. By counter-pressuring the container with CO2, the ProFill filling system drives out even more air and oxygen from the container.
