Bright tanks are also sometimes used as mixing tanks for beers that are to be bottle-conditioned. Here, the beer will be mixed with priming sugar and possibly with new yeast intended to carry out re-fermentation. The beer is then bottled (or, in rare instances, kegged) from the bright tank. In brewpubs, the bright tank is often also the serving tank; beer may run directly from this tank to the taps at the bar.
Carbonating a full batch of beer with a carbonating stone in a brite tank provides for much quicker carbonation. The carbonating stone increases the surface area contact with the beer by producing tiny bubbles of CO2, which are more easily absorbed into the beer.
If you are bottling, canning, or kegging a brewery will typically have one brite tank for every 4-5 fermenters. Beer will usually spend 2 days in a brite tank to clarify and adjust carbonation levels while most fermenters hold the beer for 10-20 days.
A Bright Tank is a dish-bottomed pressure-rated temperature-controlled tank used to hold beer in preparation for packaging. The term “bright” refers to “bright beer,” beer that has been rendered bright (clear) by filtration, centrifugation, fining, and/or maturation. In most breweries, beer will be filtered after leaving a uni-tank or lagering vessel and be directed into a bright tank. If the beer is to be force-carbonated, then the beer may be carbonated in-line, under pressure, between the fermenter or lagering tank and the bright tank. In this case, the beer should arrive at the bright tank with full carbonation.
For in-tank carbonation (or adjustments), the bright tank will be fitted with a carbonation stone, a device through which carbon dioxide is forced, dispersing fine bubbles into the liquid for fast dissolution. Carbonation stones are usually made from either porous stone or sintered stainless steel. After carbonation, the beer is ready to be bottled or kegged (or both) directly from the bright tank. As the bright tank is the last stop before the package, careful attention is paid to quality assurance at this stage. Carbonation is closely checked and the brewery’s laboratory will run a series of tests.
Beer bright tank/beer serving tank in brewpub/hotel/restaurant
Properties wider tanks with small length of cylindrical part:
Smaller heat transfer area, lower cooling effect
They are less demanding in terms of height space.
Properties slender tanks with large height of cylindrical part:
Larger heat transfer area, the greater the cooling effect
They are more demanding in terms of height space
Except vertical bright tank,we also can provide horizontal brite tank if your brewery height is limited
