BBTHX : Beer storage tanks – with horizontal orientation
The horizontal orientation of the tanks is practical in breweries with insufficient height of the room dedicated for the location of the beer storage tanks.
Horizontal beer tanks can be installed in several levels to maximize number of tanks according to the available room height.
The main disadvantage of horizontally oriented tanks is, in particular, poor access to hidden parts of the tank, where is accumulated dirt, which can be the source of unwanted infections of yeast and beer.
We recommend the horizontal beer tanks only for breweries with a really low ceiling height in the beer cellar.
We offer two variations of this type beer tank :
I. BBTHI – Pressure cylindrical BBT tanks, horizontal, insulated
Insulated beer storage tanks cooled with liquid is professional solution for all breweries for whom the savings of operating costs are at the very first place. Tanks include double cooling channels and the cooling liquid pours throug them (water or glycol) and what’s more the tanks have a cylindrical part (for extra surcharge both bottoms could be insulated) insulated with PUR foam. The outer jacket is covered with insulation and it creates a clean design of stainless steel tank. It is possible to place the tanks in a non-insulated room because insulation provides the protection against unwanted escape of cold nearby the tanks. Their advantage is all above their low electric consumption when the tanks are cooled, the need of the less powerful liquid cooler and better comfort for operators who may not work in cold room.
Our production portfolio – Pressure cylindrical BBT tanks, horizontal, insulated
II. BBTHN – Pressure cylindrical BBT tanks, horizontal, non-insulated
These cylindrical pressure tanks have the easiest construction and so it is possible to buy them for the lowest price. The beer tanks are in mono-jacketed version without any double cooling channels. Tanks have to be placed in insulated chilled room, where the space is cooled with air cooling unit. Their advanatage is their low purchase cost. And their disadvantage is that the temperature in each tank cannot be regulated regardless of the other tanks and the human operator comfort is lower because opertors work in cold and humid surroundings. The electric consumption is higher when tanks are cooled with air and not with the liquid. But this type of tank is the mostly used in craft breweries because of the investment savings.
