PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

HopSteiner was developed in close collaboration with the hop refining experts from the Steiner Group. Its innovative curved screen technology offers exciting new options for dry hopping while reducing beer losses by up to 60 %. With the BANKE HopSteiner, hops can be removed from the tank under oxygen-free conditions at any time. Technologically speaking, this creates new degrees of freedom in the process of dry hopping, reduces the volume of wastewater leaving the brewery and ensures continuous, disruption-free operations downstream, e.g. centrifugation. Since the period required for hop sedimentation in the tank has been eliminated, tank occupancy time is shorter, and the hop creep effect is reduced. BANKE HopSteiner has been optimized with regard to hygienic design and is delivered pre-assembled on a mobile frame mounted on castors. The unit is designed with flexibility in mind and can be employed immediately at a wide variety of locations in the brewery without a convoluted commissioning phase or a lengthy set-up time. At a throughput of up to 100 hl/h, even larger tanks can be clarified within a short period of time. The BANKE HopSteiner curved screen design has also been integrated into the new LoopulEX system. With this system, hops can be extracted and processed completely outside of the tank, resulting in further savings and processing options. Please contact us for further information.
