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.
