GEA AromaPlus PRO reduces the water consumption for diafiltration throughout dealcoholization by up to 100%. The alcoholic base produced as a by-product of the filtration process can be used for manufacturing different beverages within the brewery, corresponding to hard seltzer.
GEA AromaPlus uses a filtration technology with special polymer membranes to separate alcohol and water from the other ingredients by the use of reverse osmosis; these components are essential for the aroma, color and turbidity of the final product. Adding the model new PRO expertise to the water-saving CO2 blow-out perform and the selective membrane which is already carried out within the AromaPlus unit design, GEA saves greater than two thirds and as much as 100 percent of the recent water used for diafiltration.
“Our latest AromaPlus era combines the development towards zero.0% beer with the goal of decreasing water in manufacturing,” says Ralf Scheibner, filtration skilled at GEA, beneath whose leadership the GEA AromaPlus has been additional developed. “In truth, a membrane course of requires plenty of water to flush out the alcohol. เกจวัดแรงดันpsi is an issue for breweries with a restricted deoxygenized water availability. Our new PRO answer is a vital step for them in course of fresh water neutrality in manufacturing processes.”
The full dealcoholization system GEA AromaPlus is mounted on a frame. It contains the filtration modules and reverse osmosis membranes, pumps for media transfer and system stress build-up, the entire internal piping, a CIP dosing unit installed subsequent to the system, and the control equipment required for semi-automated operation. – Image: GEA/Mike Henning.
While breweries need less fresh water for the diafiltration step, the permeate leaving the system could be reused as a priceless by-product. Due to its lower volume, it has the next alcohol content material and can subsequently function a base for alcoholic blended drinks and newer drinks, such as onerous seltzer, or could be reused throughout the brewery itself.
“The Corona pandemic showed that breweries whose production amenities provided the pliability to course of different drinks coped best with the drop in demand. GEA AromaPlus is an effective example of how clients can gear their vegetation towards excessive demand dynamics,” says Scheibner. Originally designed for the dealcoholization of beer all the method down to zero.0%, the system can also be used used for other non-alcoholic beverages, such as zero.0% cider.
