At the trade show, Atlas Copco will be showcasing its state-of-the-art brewing equipment, including the SF oil-free compressor, NGP+ nitrogen generator and DZS 150V vacuum pump. Attendees are invited to stop by booth 1860 to see how these pieces of equipment help craft brewers produce high-quality beer.
Because compressed air is used in vital processes and often comes in contact with the end product, using oil-free air is always recommended. The SF oil-free compressor provides 100 percent clean air with no risk of oil infiltrating the compressed air system and contaminating a facility’s beer production. Craft brewers across the U.S. use the SF scroll compressors for increased energy efficiency, quiet operation and limited service interventions.
Nitrogen and vacuum pumps are also used in different stages of the brewing process, from production to handling and packaging. Having an onsite nitrogen generator eliminates the need for a third party provider and ensures 95 to 99 percent nitrogen purity to reach quality requirements.
Vacuum pumps like the DZS 150V are perfect for craft brewing thanks to its modular design, which separates the pumping chamber from the gearbox. This design allows for easy cleaning and reassembly while eliminating the risk of contamination from process or gearbox oil that can be common with traditional pump technologies. BrewExpo America is the nation’s largest craft brewing event drawing over 700 vendors who specialize in industry products and services. Attendees are invited to stop by Atlas Copco's booth to receive 15 percent off their order of air compressors and nitrogen generators.
