MBTHX : Beer production tanks for the maturation of beer – with a horizontal orientation

Beer production tanks for the secondary fermentation with a horizontal orientation

The horizontal orientation of the tanks is practical in breweries with insufficient height for the location of vertical maturation lager tanks.

Horizontal maturation lager tanks can be composed of several layers (batteries) to maximize 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 is the source of unwanted infections of yeast and beer. We recommend it only for microbreweries with a really low ceiling height in the beer cellar.

We offer two variations of this type beer tank :

I. MBTHI – Maturation lager tanks horizontal, insulated

Insulated maturation lager tanks cooled with liquid is professional solution for all restaurants keepers 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 some extra pay both bottoms could be insulated) insulated with PU 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 cannot work in cold room.

II. MBTHN – Maturation lager tanks horizontal, non-insulated

These maturation lager tanks are in the easiest construction and so it is possible to buy them for the lowest price. These tanks are in mono-jacketed version without any double cooling channels. Tanks have to be placed in insulated chilled room or chilled box, where the space is cooled with 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 operating 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 besides that this type of tank is used the most in restaurants because of the investment savings.
