15.12.2014 Weighing accuracy helps ensure consistent beer quality

The UK arm of Premier Tech Chronos, Eersel, the Netherlands, has upgraded an APW series in-process weigher at the Northampton brewery site of Carlsberg UK. The improved new design of weigher is now measuring precision batches of barley for the brewery’s steeping section, which is the crucial phase of the malting process. This helps Carlsberg to ensure that the correct amount of barley is available at all times to prevent over and under steeping.

Since installation of the new equipment, throughput into the steeping section has been increased to 13t/h from 8t/h. Furthermore by fitting the three-loadcell system, weighing accuracy has also been enhanced, whilst easily achieving the new higher throughputs. The new APW replaces a single loadcell design. This ensures that the weighing accuracy in the installation is not compromised whatever the product being monitored, batch weighed or totalised. All APW series weighers are designed for simple integration into new or existing installations and are capable of free-standing operation. APWs can also be interfaced with any plant process control system and their compact design includes integral feed gates and discharge doors. Control of the weigher is being undertaken by a PC456i controller.
