The Brau Beviale in Nuremberg, Germany, held from 13th November to 15th November 2012, provides the perfect platform for Pentair to present latest innovations and proven solutions from Haffmans, Sudmo and Pentair Beverage Systems (former Pentair Process Technology) at booth 6.321.

Highlights will include the BMF-18 Compact beer membrane filtration system, a turnkey solution for small and midsize breweries. Based on the proven Beer Membrane Filtration (BMF) technology, Pentair’s BMF-18 Compact meets the needs of breweries with an annual production capacity of up to 1,500,000 hectoliters. The BMF-18 Compact, a pre-assembled, stand-alone system, offers all the advantages of the original BMF concept at a significantly lower investment cost. The BMF-18 Compact provides very fast implementation. Its solid design allows for assembly prior to transportation. While the system is being built and tested at the factory the brewery can prepare the necessary piping. When it is delivered to the brewery, the BMF-18 Compact is installed as a plug-and-play system and tailored to the brewery’s specific conditions. This significantly shortens the commissioning period and makes it possible to filter the first beer one week after arrival at the brewery.

Just like the original BMF, the BMF-18 Compact provides reliable operation and highest beer quality while eliminating the health and safety risks of diatomaceous earth. Beer and time loss is minimised during product switchover with the BMF-18 Compact. In addition, the system requires only limited manual work. Switching between filtration and cleaning is accomplished by simply turning two swing bends. All other process steps, such as filtration, rinsing or cleaning are fully automated. These advantages make the BMF-18 Compact the best solution for small and mid-size breweries to filter the highest-quality beer with the lowest financial and environmental impact.

Following the introduction of the In-line O2 Gehaltemeter OGM Ultra Pure to measure the oxygen content of ultra pure carbon dioxide gas, Pentair Haffmans has further extended its range of product solutions for efficient gas measurement and treatment. The acquisition of Carl Prandtl MicroFiltration (CPM), a global leader in sterile air filtration, enables Pentair Haffmans to build on superior technology and provide our customers an in-depth spectrum of air, gas, steam, and liquid filters with CPM’s advanced filter design. Unlike conventional filter cartridges for food, beverage, and other process applications, CPM filters feature a modular design that offers the highest filtration flexibility and security and provides Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings of up to 50%. Other solutions featured at the Brau Beviale 2012 include Pentair Haffmans’ state-of-the-art quality control equipment and CO2 systems, and Pentair Sudmo’s advanced valve and process technology.

Pentair’s membrane technology for process water and effluent polishing as well as aerobic and anaerobic bioreactor (MBR) systems for wastewater treatment provide water management solutions for today’s demanding requirements. In addition, visitors will gain an insight on Pentair’s service capabilities, including remote service as a secure tool to reduce plant downtime.
