Brewery Template

Germans make great beer. So why wouldn’t you choose a German automation system to run your brewery? Now you can, and at a reasonable price. With the Siemens Brewery Template solution, you can:

  • Increase production without adding staff by prompting the brewers when a critical manual task is necessary.
  • Improve quality, repeatability and consistency by automating manual tasks, ensuring that they occur at the precise time or optimum condition, or linking with manual tasks.
  • Reduce energy usage (heating and cooling) by linking the brewing equipment such as chillers to the fermentation tanks.
  • Boost productivity of your staff by reducing the number of hours required to tend to the process, allowing them to focus on other tasks in the brewery.
  • Improve the work environment for brewery staff by adding technology that makes their jobs easier.
  • Expand the flexibility of your process to help the brewers create new recipes, modify existing recipes and try new products without the need of hiring an engineering company.
  • Automate the collection and reporting of production data
  • Synchronize Batch reports with Recipe Unit Procedures allowing the brewer to concentrate on creating the brew recipe and eliminating custom engineering to create Batch reports.

Solutions that Scale for any size operation:

For smaller breweries or just fermentation cellars you can create a single Recipe Sequence for the entire brewhouse in S7-Graph flow chart programming and have an infinite amount of Recipe formula parameter sets that the Recipe Sequence can run against.  This provides the brewery with an unlimited number of recipes they can run.  For complex recipes or different beer styles the Recipe Sequence can be controlled by parameterization of the Recipe Parameters.
