Brewery Humidity Control
The art of brewing is a delicate blend of craftsmanship and technology. Standards are high & hygiene is crucial. There is a multitude of delicate processes and temperature changes going on. Complete control of humidity is essential. Better control adds up to less risk and fewer issues.
Humidity challenges in breweries
Carefully controlled temperatures and conditions are crucial for the many different parts of the brewing process, from ingredient mixing to storage of end products.
The air outside the brewery is laden with invisible water vapour that is fluctuating in both quantity and specifications due to weather, season and time of day. When this enters the buildings in which brewing structures are housed, condensation can quickly form.
You see it on vessels, pipework, equipment and cold surfaces, often pooling as water on floors. A yeast kettle bubbling away at 5oC in rooms where the overall temperature is 20oC is normally a sure-fire recipe for condensation arising.
Any condensation makes it likely that undesirable bacterial growths and mould, flourishes in walls and ceilings. This, as well as causing corrosion and damage to structures, fittings & equipment. This unhygienic situation gets worse with steam cleaning. This puts more uncontrolled moisture in the air, although things do look clean immediately afterward.
Fans, ventilation and air conditioning are never an answer because they just replace one body of air with uncontrolled humidity with another – with just as little control.
Eliminating the humidity problem
There are a series of practical, cost-saving benefits through controlling the point at which the water vapour in the air inside different parts of your brewing facility condenses (the dew point).
Dehum’s dehumidification systems enable your brewery staff to maintain control over air conditions through production & while the resulting product is being stored.
You can use this specialist technology to determine the dew point of the air so that condensation – and all its many resultant problems – simply cannot arise. When the relative humidity is brought below 65% at 20oC, any condensation problems you may have are completely done away with.
And Dehums adsorption dehumidifiers are unique in being available with an add-on heat recovery module, making them the only humidity management solutions able to comply with the most stringent energy requirements currently in force anywhere.
