Specialist food and beverage equipment manufacturer Pentair has introduced its internet of things (IoT) service solution for beer membrane filtration (BMF) systems, to help breweries achieve great-tasting, high quality beer while reducing energy and water consumption.

Designed to help boost operational performance, Pentair’s new IoT service solution allows brewers to continuously monitor critical process performance data during brewing to help maximise operational efficiencies and optimise beer quality.

“At Pentair, we work to deliver smart, sustainable solutions that empower our customers to make the most of life’s essential resource,” said Dominik Elsaesser, Technology Vice-President at Pentair Filtration Solutions.

“The new IoT service solution for our BMF systems is designed to help our customers run their operations more efficiently and improve product quality and safety, while at the same time, reduce energy, water and cleaning chemical consumption.”

The BMF IoT service solution provides brewers with a customisable dashboard to view relevant process parameters. This would enable operators to make adjustments in real time, helping to reduce uptime and extend beer production runs, and also helping to lower operating and upstream costs.

Brewers and beverage producers will have the opportunity to interact with and see live demonstrations of Pentair’s IoT service solution this week at BrauBeviale 2018, an international trade fair for the entire beverage production process chain, held from today to 15th November in Nürnberg, Germany.

In addition to Pentair’s IoT service solution for BMF systems, Pentair is showcasing its smart and sustainable solutions aimed at helping customers improve and move water and fluids while reducing energy consumption, downtime and operating costs.
