Alfa Laval at Drinktec 2017 – together we “Make it happen”
Make it happen at the Alfa Laval stand Hall B3, stand 3-323 at Drinktec, where we will focus on how beverage and beer producers can increase yield throughout the production process, reach the right diversity of flavour and achieve purity of taste in the products, at the same time maximize energy efficiency, uptime, water savings and waste recovery.
Alfa Laval De- alcoholization Module
Among the product exhibits to highlight is our De-alcoholization Module – a streamlined combination of heat exchangers, instruments and flow control to efficiently provide non-alcohol beer below 0.05% alcohol by volume at low temperature and pressure in one process with minimum use of utilities, and at low cost. The module first degasses the beer, returns condensable volatiles back to the beer stream, and then removes alcohol using culinary steam flowing upwards in a special stripping column. The alcohol exits as a vapour, which is condensed and collected. This fully automated, energy-efficient module gives a reliable single-pass alcohol removal, using a stripping principle that is exceptionally effective at low temperature and pressure, keeping operating costs to a bare minimum.
On display, visitors will also be able to touch and see:
