Brewery automation

Wednesday, 01 April, 2009 | Supplied by: Siemens Ltd



Braumat Compact has been designed for start-ups and smaller brewery projects, while Braumat Plus, with its integrated plant asset management, is suitable for large brewery projects. Both packages are based on the Siemens Simatic PCS 7 process control system, which can be deployed in a variety of industry sectors.

Siemens brewery control systems are scalable and suitable for small and medium-sized breweries, as well as for companies with a number of brewing sites. Braumat Compact has been specifically designed for start-ups, smaller brewery projects, sub-plants or individual process areas; it combines automation, operation and monitoring in one customised solution. The package has a flexible recipe system for several beer types and includes the planning of production and cleaning jobs, as well as detailed production reports or batch-specific trend analysis.

Braumat Plus is suitable for large breweries with one or more brewing sites and a wider product range. With the aid of flexible client/server architecture it can be customised to fit the respective plant size. It contains a batch package for recipe control, a standardised interface to the Simatic IT manufacturing execution system, a route control system with comprehensive diagnostic functions plus an asset management module.

Braumat Classic, based on Simatic S7 controllers, now includes extended functionalities that secure the long-term operation of plants and support the integration of the latest technology.

In addition to the three Braumat process control packages, Siemens offers breweries end-to-end optimised packaging line (OPL) standardisation, for low life cycle costs of bottle-filling and packaging lines. With this concept, modularised and standardised components from the Simotion motion control system and Sinamics drive system reduce the cost of engineering, commissioning and operation, including maintenance.
