Disc stack separator

Questions about using a centrifuge in your brewery?

Many smaller craft brewers still assume that centrifuges are too costly or offer little benefit for clarifying beer. But today’s modular disc stack systems, optimized for small breweries, now require only a small investment compared to conventional tank settling, and provide faster solids separation without the same high product losses. Additionally, they provide better retention of aromatics and volatiles than filtration systems. The result is a solution that offers long-term savings and superior beer quality.

Our experts offer unique knowledge to make sure you get an optimized clarification solution that ensures higher output and quality at the lowest cost. Still have questions?

Brew 20: Separation innovation for craft brewers

Alfa Laval invented the world’s first disc stack centrifuge in 1883, and we have been constantly re-innovating separation technology ever since. All of this experience has gone into Brew 20, a centrifuge engineered specifically to meet the needs of brewpubs and small microbreweries. Compact and energy-efficient, Brew 20 is easy to operate with minimal maintenance needs – giving you a low total cost of ownership. The module comes ready to install on a robust plug-and-play skid, and it can be delivered within just 12-16 weeks. Brew 20 also represents a smart solution for enhancing quality and flavour, thanks to innovations like the Axial-Hermetic Seal. This unique feature makes it possible to achieve dissolved oxygen pickup levels under 10 ppb, without requiring expensive CO2 or deaerated water.
