Instead of investing in new storage vessels with big environmental footprints, breweries can transfer their beer quicker to bottles and cans. The P&W-series also works well for beer-recovery and dry-hopped beer which is popular with craft brewers.
The first machine for the Sweden market was installed at beginning of 2017 at Sigtuna Brewhouse, and was an immediate success for the small brewery. When "Beer-News," a web-based newsletter, interviewed a handful of Swedish craft brewers at the end of 2017, Karl Kusas, brewer at Sigtuna praised the GEA Separator with above positive statement.
-"We don't have to use kiselguhr anymore, which meant long preparation and completion. Shorter time to clarify, and the quality on our beer is higher due to less pick-up of oxygen which means longer shelf-life and kept aroma in the beer,"Kusas explains.
Since the first installation at Sigtuna, GEA has sold multiple units of the P&W-series for use in the Swedish market and there is more interest for the machine all the time.
Due to this, GEA Sweden now has its very own P&W 20hl in place which allows potential customers do trials on - "No matter how informative a PowerPoint presentation is, it can't show all the details about storage time, clarifying efficiency or all of the other benefits as effectively as the real thing. We will be using the P&W to make the brewer even further convinced that this is what his/her brewery must have!" says Mats Augustsson, GEA Area Sales Manager - Brewery.
