Botec F1

Complex sequences easily automated

Botec F1: Batch-oriented technology

The Botec F1 process control system makes it possible to use equipment, raw materials and energy more efficiently – making it not only suitable for breweries, but also for beverage companies and dairies that produce in batches. Botec F1 monitors and controls all of the steps included in batch production in real time. This enables the system to meet the requirements for a reproducible manufacturing result – while at the same time assisting the operators with their manual actions.
