Cutting cooling costs for breweries

20 February 2017

Refrigeration is a critical requirement in all breweries to ensure that specific temperatures required in the brewing process are always maintained.  J & E Hall has designed, installed and maintains a wide variety of refrigeration solutions which are tailored specifically to the needs of the brewing industry. 

All equipment is designed to a given application within the brewing process, taking into consideration energy efficiency, optimum performance and long life. Its solutions can operate on any refrigerant.  The company has experience with direct and indirect refrigeration systems and all refrigerants including ammonia, CO2, hydrocarbons and HFCs.

The company worked with Wadsworth Brewery, helping the company to cut running costs by improving glycol temperature control. The ammonia-based system, which included two Hall Screw compressors, serves a transfer beer chiller, a cask conditioning room, three cold rooms and several conditioning tasks involved in the cask conditioning and refining processes. Fridgewatch controllers were also employed to control the compressors and the inverter. This controller ensures that the glycol set point is constantly maintained at -6.5°C across all loads, from one compressor running at minimum load to both compressors running at maximum load.
