Something special: distillery plants

As for industrial production, you have to keep in mind a lot of parameters. We will support you with our experience. The size of your premises, your striving for excellence of the final distillate, matters of quantity and production processes, economic distillation – we consider all these reference data as we develop and manufacture your distillery plant. And we focus on efficiency, user friendliness, and durability of your distillation facility. We plan your processes together, then we develop your individual solution. Thus, the result will be a plant that exactly matches your situation and your wishes, planned and manufactured only for you. 

Continuous distillery plants

We build continuously running plants for capacities of 600 l of mash per hour and more. The fermented mash is preheated in a special dephlegmator before moving on into the mash column. There, it meets with vapor streaming in the opposite direction, flows against it, down onto the mash plates, with the alcohol evaporating. The dealcoholized stillage is then discharged. Above the mash filler, there are several distillation plates for the rectification of the alcohol. Continuous plants are perfect for non-chunky mashes such as from grain, molasses, or wine. Contrary to the notion that this process would destroy many aromas, experience shows that quite intense rough distillates can be generated, which can then be finished to become high-quality distillates using a batch installation. 

Rectification facilities

The alcohol generated in a continuous distillery (or from another source) can be rectified to up to 96 % ABV in a rectification facility with forty and more trays. For this process, the alcoholic strength of the rough distillate as well as the speed of distillation are of major importance. Such rectification facilities are thus often run automatically, which includes controlling all distillation parameters. 

Demethylizer columns

If the rectified alcohol is processed to become vodka, EU rules stipulate that the methanol level be strictly limited. This necessitates subsequent demethylization. Such small facilities are also continuous ones, from which you can continuously gather the demethylized distillate.
