Beer maturation tank, also know as brite tank, bright beer tank, is used to age beer during the secondary fermentation process. The horizontal maturation tank is one type of maturation container and the other type is vertical. Our maturation tans are stackable which means you can save much space by increase the height and reducing the width. Every single tank equips more than necessary parts ensuring you have the best using experience.
Custom built stainless steel horizontal maturation tank
The main function of the pressurized beer maturation tank is to provide a container where the secondary phase of the beer fermentation – the maturation of beer happens, which is the natural saturation of the beer by the carbon dioxide which is spontaneously produced during the physical activity of the beer yeasts, at low temperature (usually from 1°C to 4°C) and low pressure (usually from 1.0bar to 2.5bar). As mentioned aforementioned, beer maturation tank mainly contains two categories, vertical type of maturation and horizontal maturation tank. Here we are going to expound horizontal maturation tank.

Q1 Can your brewery system make both lager and ale?
Yes. Our brewery system can do this.
Q2 About the heating system:
Normally for 3 heating system;electric,steam and direct fire heating, if the capacity more than 1200l, it needs steam heating, less than 1200l capacity, can be electric,steam,direct fire are all ok,just the electric heating price is cheaper than steam heating and direct fire.
Q3 How to do temperature control?
The PLC or digital display meter can control the temperature via connecting with the PT100 sensor. Insulation keep the temperature.
Q4 Is it possible to supply installation in my country?
Yes, our engineers can go to your place and teach you installation and brewing.
Some clients are new in this field, they also no have ideas about how to confirm the configuration list, since we have experience, we can give some suggestions and also other clients for reference, then they will know what they will need exactly. We also have the process video for the brewing equipment, if the client do not know the process, the video will be sent.
We will give the layout according to the client’s floor plan or their requirements.3D layout also can be provided. This can help the client to get a better understanding about the project.
We will give the detailed diagram of the tanks, this can help the client to know whether this is what they need and also can modify them before placing the order.
When loading the equipment, we will take photos and show them to the client to confirm everything in the container already. Another important issue is installation,2 options can be chosen by the clients as follows:
1).We can send the engineer there for helping the client install debug the equipment, if it is necessary, the engineer also can teach the client how to brewing beer.
2).We can provide the piping diagram and wire diagram. They are useful for installing. Then the client can install the equipment by themselves.
3).The sales will contact with the client all the time until the equipment running normally. Once the client need any assistances or need any accessory, the sales will provide them soonest.
