BrauKon BrauControl

All-in process automation

BrauKon BrauControl is a process automation solution for the entire brewery production process – from the malt intake through to the bright beer tank and including the CIP unit. A weekly schedule allows the brew cycle to be pre-adjusted; a brewing log documents the brew progression.

Flexible and reliable

Decoction mashing methods are just as possible as is infusion mashing with any number of rests. In the lauter tun, a self-optimising fuzzy logic controller takes over the lautering sequence and independently decides on the raking machine height, pump speed and sparging process. The lauter wort heating, start of boiling and boiling times are freely programmable. The hop addition process can be completely automated and BrauControl also takes over the clarifying, cooling and aeration of the wort. All fermenting and storage tanks have a recipe level which can be used to control the temperature profile.

Future-proof equipment

There are 60 recipe positions available, each with 30 steps. The BrauControl is operated using a Siemens touch panel. The system is based almost exclusively on original Siemens components. They can be found in both the hardware equipment supplied and the software program module area.
