With the wort aeration system WORTSTAR® GEA has developed an innovative aeration unit that treats the wort gently and works efficiently.

The GEA wort aeration system

WORTSTAR™ Wort Aeration System

After cooling the wort is oxygenated to increase yeast activity and to start the fermentation process. To ensure the necessary air or oxygen supply into the wort stream we have developed an aeration unit that is an innovative concept compared with other conventional aeration systems. Our unit treats the wort gently and works efficiently.

When the wort flows into the aeration nozzle, it creates a partial vacuum and air is entrained with the wort. This leads to an excellent bubble size distribution and thus to a large contact surface for oxygen uptake by the wort.
The system is the standard for obtaining the optimum yeast flotation and activity, and more precise fermentation curves. This guarantees superior quality beer.

A semi-automatic wort aeration unit for craft brewers (DN 25 to DN 50) is also available.
