3-vats brewhouse MBS3

Spadoni’s systems for beer production are efficient and easy to use.

Equipped with automatic controls and the appropriate technical devices, they guarantee brewmasters the greatest freedom in production, and the possibility to optimise the process, making it controllable and reproducible. For this reason, Spadoni’s machines are all equipped with an integrated automation system which, starting from an initial recipe, allows for practical and quick variations.

The Spadoni MBS3 (B-36) 3-vats brewhouse are optimised for a saccharometric gradation of 15° Plato.

Of the three vats, two are heated, to facilitate the mashing (vat 1) and the boiling and whirlpool (vat 3) while the second vat, dedicated to filtration, does not require a thermal cycle. The heating modes are, optionally, electric or steam.

Spadoni MBS2 range includes the following batch sizes:

    • 1.200 Lt,
    • 2.000 Lt,
    • 3.000 Lt,
    • 4.000 Lt
    • 5.000 Lt.

The complete line of Spadoni’s brewhouses, includes, in addition to the MBS3 series, with 3-vats brewhouse and a capacity from 1,200 litres to 5,000 litres of cooked must, the MBS2 series, with 2 vats and a capacity from 150 to 2,000 Lt. , and the MBS4 + series, with 4 or 5 vats for large productions with capacities from 1,200 to 12,000 litres.

Operating principles

Spadoni offers complete systems for the brewing sector, covering all stages of the preparation of beer wort: mills for grinding and transportation of the malt, storage tanks, cooking rooms for mashing, saccharification, filtration, boiling and hopping; cooling, fermentation and re-fermentation.

In the three-vat brewhouse, the ready-made beer wort is subjected to the processes of: mashing and saccharification (vat 1), filtration (vat 2), and boiling, whirlpool, and hopping in vat 3.

In the first vat, the mashing process is made particularly effective by the characteristic mixing blades mounted inside it.

Structural characteristics of the filtration vat (2) allow for good efficiency thanks to the must distribution system at the inlet, the threshing cutting device, and the sparging function, which allows to recover the fermentable sugars still in suspension from the threshers.

The expert design of the third vat, the one for the boiling/whirlpool phase, guarantees the optimal separation of the solid substances during the whirlpool phase.

The cooling of the must is obtained through a plate exchanger, while the subsequent aeration phase takes place at the outlet, where the processed air is injected into the line.

Spadoni MBS3 system can manage the entire brewing process, from the entry of sorghum into the mash vat, to mashing, from reading the levels, to the boiling, including all transfers between vats, the commands for managing the distribution circuits of the heat, and the water mixing valves (throughout the process, and in the sparging and washing phases).

All the commands are placed on the central panel of the platform, where the programmable PLC is located.

3-vats brewhouse characteristics
