Cooling technology

 

SALM breweries are always equipped with insulated and jacket cooled fermentation and storage tanks or UNI-tanks as well as pressure dispensing tanks. Room cooling is therefore NOT necessary, which is very inefficient and health endangering for the brewer. The investment costs for room coolings are also very high and mostly similar to the price difference between uninsulated and insulated tanks.

 
For ECO and PROFI series we offer two different cooling systems which are both based on a glycol cooling system for tanks, the Block-cooling and the latent energy storage cooling system.

 

 

Block-Cooling system                              LGC latent storage cooling system

 

The Block-Cooling system is equipped            The Latent Energy Storage Cooling system

with a glycol-icestorage compartment for      consists of a charging unit, the storage tank

wort cooling and tank cooling. The                 and a pumping unit. Both tanks and ice water
