Instead of investing in new storage vessels with big environmental footprints, the breweries can transfer their beer quicker to bottles and cans. The P&W-series also applies well for beer-recovery and dry-hoped beer which follows this boom of Craft Brewers.
The first machine for this market in Sweden was installed in beginning of 2017 at Sigtuna Brewhouse, and was a direct success for the small brewery. When "Beer-News", a web-based newsletter, interviewed some of the Swedish Craft Brewers in the end of that year, Karl Kusas 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 proceeds.
Since the first installation at Sigtuna, GEA have sold multiple units of the P&W-series to the Swedish market and the interest for the machine keeps developing in a positive direction.
Due to this, GEA Sweden now have a very own P&W 20hl in place to let 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 and all other benefits as effectively as the real thing. We will use 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.
GEA Plug & Win = More beer - quicker & tastier. A true win-win!
