Brewery Equipment

VetterTec provides brewery equipment with complete solutions for buffering, conveying, dewatering and drying of spent grains as well as yeast drying equipment.


Buffer tank

A buffer tank enables fast emptying of spent grains from the lauter tun using a screw positioned in the flanged-on conveyor housing. The lauter tun can be filled for the next brew after emptying, while the buffer can be emptied on a continuous basis.


Pneumatic conveying

The wet spent grains are pneumatically conveyed (plug conveying) from the buffer tank to a wet spent grains silo (discharge system) or a new buffer tank, before being fed to a screw press and to a spent grains dryer (Tube Bundle Dryer).


Storage

The storage tank before the screw press enables continuous operation of the press and dryer. Wet spent grains are discharged from the silo using a counting and registration system. After the drying process, the dried spent grains are fed to a silo from which the product is filled into bags or conveyed to a pelletizing system in order to reduce transport volume.
