    Systematic piping connection concepts

    Intelligent piping connections in the brewery

    Perfectly combined product routes contribute to making your brewery more economic –they guarantee maximum plant availability, reduce product losses and save on cleaning agents.
    A coherent piping connection concept, particularly in the fermentation cellar, is not only profitable during operation, it also significantly reduces the total investment amount required for valves and pipes right from the very beginning. The experts from Steinecker will help you to find the perfect engineering solution for your cellar.

    The right concept for your cellar

    No other process area in a brewery has so many interfaces with connected areas as the fermentation and maturation cellar. Here, the engineering challenge is mostly to reconcile the different degrees of automation for these process areas in the fermentation and maturation cellar.

    The following must be particularly taken into consideration:

    • Operability of the plant
    • Product and production reliability
    • Flexibility and availability

    Example of a piping concept

    Steinecker TwinPro

    The in-house piping connections of the fermenting cellar stands out thanks to their low investment and operating costs as compared to conventional pipe fence tank connections.


    • One valve block each for the filling and emptying processes in the tanks
    • Tank loop with up to four tanks
    • Valve blocks with double-seat technology for connecting the tanks to the main pipes
    • Up to 30% less demand for piping connections and valve technology
    • Up to 35% saved water for displacement and cleaning medium thanks to reduced pipe lengths
    • Simply expandable without high installation costs and work
    • Top flexibility
