BrauKon TControl

Automatic controller for mashing, lautering and wort boiling

Brewery processes such as mashing, lautering and wort boiling can be automated with the BrauKon TControl. The TControl regulates the agitator speed and mash temperature in the mash tun. Rests can be individually configured. During the lautering process, sparging and raking are performed automatically. Depending on the brewery equipment available, lautering is controlled based either on the quantity of first wort or the lautering time.

In the wort kettle, the TControl takes on both the heating-up process for boiling and the boiling process itself. Specific procedures such as valve switching for final mash pumping, wort casting or kettle rinsing are performed manually. The same applies to hop dosing processes, the time of which can be signaled audio-visually.

Flexible and efficient

In the brewhouse there are 20 recipes each with 20 steps available. Manual adjustments during the brewing procedures can be either saved permanently in the recipe or can be applied only to the current brew. The temperature of the water and fermenting tanks can be controlled using a two-point controller with hysteresis. Efficient working is guaranteed through precise automation procedures and minimized brewer attendance times.

This controller, which is designed throughout with Siemens S7 equipment, is operated with a Siemens industrial PC including a 12” touch panel. The operating system can be optionally set up with a remote maintenance feature.
