After an initial fermentation, beer may be conditioned in lagering tanks where it will be stored at near freezing temperatures for 1-6 months. The beer is no longer exposed to the "trub" that has settled to the bottom of the primary fermenter. The lagering process will help prevent the formation of unwanted flavors by cleaning up various chemicals, acids and compounds.

10BBL Maturation Lagering Tanks Horizontal China
The beer maturation tank can also serve as an overpressure tank for special final operations with beer (called also the combi tank / the universal tank), so it is possible to use the tank for the filling beer through into the glasses, to filtering or pasterizing of beer, to change flavor of beer or to isobaric filling beer into bottles or kegs.
|Maturation Lagering Tanks|
Over pressure setting mechanism from 0 bar up to 3 bar (or more according to customer requirements)
Cooling channels – duplicators for circulation of coolant (glycol or water)
PUR insulation – thickness corresponding to the size of the tank and the environment
Stainless steel jacket – with the customer selected surface finishing
Guaranteed inner surface roughness of Ra = 0.8 microns or less (except in very small tanks and terminate-welds on medium-size tanks)
Manhole on the bottom or on cylinder part (according to customer requirements)
Outlet / inlet for beer or cider
Outlet / inlet for dosing and discharge of yeast
Sanitation showers – spray ball (static or rotary) – one or more pcs according of length of the tank
Cleanable and sanitizable sampling cock
Double-acting air vent valve
Independent safety over pressure valve (only tanks with volume greater than 24000 L)
Cleanable and sanitizable glass level indicator
Supporting frame is designed individually according of customer requirements
Horizontal lagering tank with support frame
Insulation – polyurethane insulation with thickness according to the size of the tank and the target environment
Outer jacket of the tank of stainless steel – with the required surface finishing (standard finish = grinded surface)
Guaranteed inner surface roughness – Ra < 0.8 μm or less (grinded surface) / Ra < 0.5 μm or less (polished surface)
Service door (inspection manhole) – on the upper bottom of the tank or on the front of the cylindrical part of the tank, according to customer requirements
Bottom tank filling-draining armature – with a butterfly valve for filling tank, discharging of yeast and draining of full content of the tank
Sanitation pipe – a multifunction pipe with a ball valve for connect of accessories like the sanitizing shower, the CIP station (for cleaning, sanitizing), the adjustable pressure valve with manometer, the carbon dioxide inlet.
Sample valve – cleanable and sanitizable sampling cock for collection of beer samples to laboratory tests and for tasting of beer during the beer maturation process.
Safety valve – the universal safety valve with overpressure protection (standard = 3.0 bar) and vaccum protection (0.2 bar) – only on pressure version of the tank.
Venting valve – special valve for safety draining of the tank with protection of the tank against implosion during pumping-out of content. The valve is also designed for accurate measuring of pressure in the tank using a manometer (when the shower ball shower is blocked or filled with foam).
Thermometer socket – welded socket for inserting of thermosensor or thermometer (available one or more pieces according type of the tank)
Manometer – is an accessories of the adjustable pressure valve, it is made of stainless steel, with glycerine fill.
Horizontal brite beer tank,sample valve,malt and pipeline etc.
|Types of beer maturation lager tanks according to the spatial orientation:|
1. Beer maturation lagering tanks vertical
- tanks in a brewery are "standing". Easy for cleaning and sanitation and there is also easy access to the tanks from all sides. The disadvantage is the space requirement both in height and in the area of beer cellar. Vertical maturation tanks are standard in modern breweries and this concept is preferred where small space is no fundamental limitation.
2. Beer maturation lagering tanks horizontal
The advantage is saving place. In the same area we can place a greater number of tanks, if they are arranged in the battery, i.e. several rows one above another. The disadvantage is the difficult cleaning and sanitation of the tanks stored too low or too high. Battery tanks are difficult to clean from outside - in inaccessible surfaces of tanks organic contaminants may accumulate and contaminate the produced beer.
The construction of maturation tanks depending on allowed overpressure and using
According to customer request we can replace all the maturation tanks by combi-serving tanks with a maximum allowed overpressure of 3.0 bar tested by PED with combined functionality both lager and bright beer tanks - then the microbrewery operator can bottle and serve beer from any pressurized lager tank without pumping beer into dedicated serving tanks.
