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.
BrauKon TControl Pro
Based on the BrauKon TControl, the BrauKon TControl Pro takes on the entire brewing work of a two-vessel brewhouse – from mashing in to casting. Depending on the brewhouse equipment used, lautering is controlled either based on the first-wort quantity or the lautering time. The time for hop dosing is signalled audio-visually.
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. 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. From a hardware viewpoint, only components from renowned, globally active companies are included.
