Wort Recovery From Hot Trub

Reduction In Wort Losses By Means Of Decanters

The hot trub separated out during wort treatment in the whirlpool still contains up to 75% liquid wort. As a result, wort recovery from hot trub is a very effective method of minimising your wort losses, and thus saving manufacturing costs.

The Flottweg decanter can be used for supplementing trub separation from the hot wort. It can process a high settleable solid content without difficulty. The separated hot trub is optimally concentrated. The recovered hot wort can be directly added to the treated hot wort flow after the whirlpool. Wort recovery from hot trub thus sustainably minimises wort losses, and optimises the entire brewing process.

Advantages Of The Flottweg Decanter For Wort Recovery At A Glance:

  • Significant reduction in wort losses due to high dry matter content in the separated hot trub
  • Optimum operating costs and an improved brewing process due to continuous, automated operation
  • Reduced manufacturing costs per hectolitre of beer
