Brite beer tanks are often also called serving tanks, tax determination tanks or clear beer tanks (=CBTs), bright beer tanks (=BBTs), maturation or conditioning tanks. We know that bright beer tank is the last vessel that beer comes in contact with to become a beer that is perfectly matured, clarified and ready to be packaged and served.Depending on their application , the beer serving tanks can be glycol jacketed or can be located in a cold room.
Service tanks, also called bright beer tanks, are the containers structurally identical to maturing tanks.Their typical feature is the certification for pressure 3.0 bar, since for their main function, which is filling the transport packaging ( kegs, bottles ) and draught beer ( in the adjacent restaurant ), it is necessary to keep beer under a higher pressure than is used in maturing tanks.
The cylindrical brite tank for final work with purified beverage (called also serving tank, filling tank, service tank, storage tank, BBT – Bright beer tank) . This type of the beverage-production tank is equipped with a horizontal stackable construction. This professional equipment is designed to storage, serving, carbonization, filtration of beer, cider, wine and other beverages under pressure, and also for preparation of beverages before their filling into kegs or bottles. The vessel is available in several variants, it is made of food grade steel AISI 304.The tank is normally available in several versions (optional dimensions, quality class, maximum pressure). All parts are made in European Union.
Standard equipment configuration:
Pressure fine-adjusting valve without the fermentation lock – Simplified mechanism to accurate setting of pressure designed for this type of beverage production tanks with a glycerine manometer (standard range from 0 bar up to 3 bar ) – necessary for keeping beer under pressure during all operations with the tank – in this type of the tank this function is provided by the simplified adjustable pressure valve.
Outer jacket of the tank of stainless steel – Kind of the surface finishing (standard = grinded) choosed by customer.
Guaranteed inner surface roughness : Ra < 0.6 μm or less (grinded surfaces) / Ra < 0.4 μm or less (polished surfaces)
Service door (manhole) – The door is positioned on the front arched part (SQ = opening inward / HQ = opening outward)
Bottom filling/emptying armature – The inlet / outlet pipe with a butterfly valve for filling tank, discharging of yeast and draining of full content of the tank
CIP ball – CIP sanitizing ball (SQ = statical / HQ = rotational) – one or more pcs according length of the tank
Sanitation pipe – A multifunction pipe with a ball valve for connection of a shower head to the cleaning-sanitizing CIP station , the adjustable pressure valve with manometer, CO2 inlet
Sample valve – cleanable and sanitizable sampling cock for collection product samples
Vacuum valve – Double-acting overpressure valve (standard = 3.2 bar) and underpressure
Venting valve – Dedicated venting valve for safety draining of the tank and for accurate measuring of current pressure in the tank using manometer (it ensures properly function of the manometer when the shower ball shower is blocked with a foam)
Pressure gauge – It is included in the set of the adjustable pressure valve. Made of stainless steel, with glycerine inside.
Stackable feet (support plates) – They allow the stacking of the tanks into space-saving assemblies in more horizontal layers.
Filling level indicator – Sanitizable glass or plastic pipe for visualisation height level of the beverage product in the tank (SQ = fixed / HQ = removable)
Type label – the steel label with all parameters that are required from European Union for pressure vessels
