The vertical brite tank and the horizontal brite tank have the same use value in production. However, there are certain differences and their respective advantages and disadvantages in actual use, which are described below.

Vertical Brite Tank

  • Due to the pressure requirements, the diameter of the brite tank is generally restricted. In this way, the capacity of the vertical brite tank cannot be made large, otherwise it will be very high. Although large-capacity beer tanks can be 10~15m high, CIP devices must be used, otherwise it will cause difficulties in cleaning.

  • The liquid level of the vertical brite tank is 2~3 times larger than that of the horizontal tank. Therefore, when the beer enters the tank, it must overcome the greater force than the horizontal tank (each increase in lm height needs to increase by about 0.0098 MPa pressure), which accordingly increases the pressure required for filtration. If you use compressed air to filter the beer, it will increase the pressure on the storage tank. However, conversely, because the brite tank has a higher level of pressure, it can make the beer enter the tank more stable .When filling, a smaller delivery pressure can be used.

  • The largest contact surface between the beer in the vertical brite tank and the compressed air (oxygen) is the cross-sectional area of the tank, which is relatively smaller than the horizontal tank. In this way, the oxygen dissolves and oxidizes in the beer. The degree of effect is better.

  • The vertical brite tank occupies a small area, but the height is higher than that of the horizontal tank. Therefore, the height of the sake room should be higher. If it is placed in the open air, there will be no such effect.

Horizontal Brite Tank

  • The volume can be made very large. The largest horizontal tank in China can reach 1500~2000W. It is also very convenient to clean, including manual cleaning or CIP device (removable). Since the diameter is generally not more than 2.5m, it is pressure resistant. Slightly better. And can be made very long.

  • The height of the horizontal tank is equal to the diameter, and the liquid level pressure will not exceed 0.3MPa. Therefore, the pressure in the tank can be lower, and the pressure in the post-fermentation tank can also be lower, but when the beer enters the tank (especially when the filter is started When the filtering speed is relatively fast), it is easy to produce swelling phenomenon and foam. The amount of compressed air is also consumed when filling wine.

  • The maximum contact surface area with compressed air (oxygen) is DXL (D-the inner diameter of the cleaning tank (m),-the length of the brite tank (m)) This surface area depends on the length of the tank, the larger the L, the more the surface area is. , The more dissolved oxygen.

  • Large area. From the actual use effect, a small-volume vertical brite tank (150~200hl) is better.
