Atlas Copco is heading to Music City for BrewExpo America held by the Brewers Association from May 1 to May 3. The nation’s largest craft brewers conference will host more than 700 vendors who will be offering the industry’s latest products and services. Attendees are invited to stop by booth 1860 to learn how Atlas Copco’s SF oil-free compressor, onsite NGP+ nitrogen generator and DZS 150V vacuum pump help craft brewers produce pure high-quality beer.
Inside a brewing facility, compressed air is used in several processes, including:
- Equipment process control (i.e., brewing, kegging, canning)
- Wort aeration
- Powering onsite nitrogen generators
Because compressed air is used in vital processes and often comes in contact with the beverage itself, oil-free air is always recommended. Atlas Copco’s SF oil-free compressor provides 100 percent clean air, which means there is zero risk of oil infiltrating the system and contaminating a facility’s beer production. Craft breweries across the country rely on the SF series for its quiet operation, energy efficiency and low maintenance.
Much like compressed air, nitrogen and vacuum pumps are also used in different stages of the brewing process, from production to handling and packaging. Having an onsite nitrogen generator eliminates the need for a third party provider and ensures 95 to 99 percent nitrogen purity to reach quality requirements.
Vacuum pumps like the DZS 150V are perfect for craft brewing because its modular design separates the pumping chamber from the gearbox. This design allows for easy cleaning and reassembly while eliminating the risk of contamination from process or gearbox oil that can be common with traditional pump technologies.
Learn more about the latest in brewing technology when you stop by Atlas Copco booth 1860. As an added bonus, we’re offering BrewExpo attendees 15 percent off air compressors and nitrogen generators.
