The fermentation tank is the place where alcohol is finally produced. The size and number of fermentation tank determine the final output of the brewery. Fermentation tanks are generally as large as the brewhouse or twice as large as the brewhouse. But for large brewery that can produce multiple batches per day, the fermentation tank can also be several times the size of the brewhouse.
Why is there such a requirement for the size of the fermentation tank? The time from the first wort entering the fermentation tank to the last time the wort enters the fermentation tank is called the full tank time, and the full tank time is preferably within 24 hours. If it exceeds 24 hours, it will affect the reduction of diacetyl to butanediol. If the diacetyl content is too high, it will cause beer to produce a rancid taste.
Beer fermentation tank are typical brewery tanks that are designed especially for production of alcoholic beverages like beer.It can be Non-jacketed and jacketed beer fermentation tanks.
The FV’s are all 304 SS TIG weld construction and polished to a sanitary interior finish.The fermentation tank is equipped with top dome head/hops adding port/dimple plate jacketed/CIP spraying ball/sampling valve/liquid level meter/beer outlet and sewage outlet/water-sealed mechanical regulating valve/pressure gauge/carbonation stone and other supporting valves. With polyurethane insulation to ensure that the fermenting temperature is kept at a low. Equipped with PT100 temperature sensor, with PLC auto-control system.
