Additive Dosing System ADS

Customized and Inline DosingThe dosing system, known as the ADS (Additive Dosing System), ensures continuous and precise addition of basic ingredients such as syrup, roasted malt beer, hop products, flavors, enzymes, and other additives to beer, wort, and various beverages. The respective additive can be taken from various containers such as containers, cans, IBCs, barrels, or other packages, depending on the requirement. Additionally, the container can be inertized with protective gases like CO2 or nitrogen to prevent unwanted oxygen contamination of the final product. These additive dosing systems are especially used in breweries for the production of beer mixed drinks. Using our inline additive dosing provides maximum flexibility in production right up to the bottling process. The system is characterized by highly precise and reliable measuring technology for volume and mass flow as well as precise control algorithms.

How does the ADS work?Optionally, the component to be dosed can be homogenized in its transport container by connecting a gas hose to the outlet and mixing the contents by introducing CO2 or nitrogen. The container is then connected directly to the dosing device, making  transfer unnecessary. The gas hose is fixed at the top connection so that the content is charged with CO2 or nitrogen when removed. This step is crucial to prevent the ingress of atmospheric oxygen, which in turn contributes to microbiological safety. The dosing hose is attached to the outlet. When using a suction lance, the container is placed on a slightly inclined surface, and the suction lance is inserted through the opening. A special lance holder ensures that neither the lance nor the container tips over, even when the canister is empty.

During production, the volume flow of the product to which the component is to be dosed is recorded at the inlet of the system using an inductive flowmeter. The system then doses according to the product flow and the dosing ratio specified by the recipe, be it roasted malt beer, hop products, flavors, syrup, or enzymes. This is done using frequency-controlled hygienic dosing pumps or control valves. Depending on customer requirements, the flows can be recorded and controlled using volume or mass flow meters.

 

 

To produce beer mixed drinks and soft drinks, various components, including water, simple syrup, basic ingredients, and flavors, can be continuously and in real-time added to the beer or water. There is no limit to the number of components that can be dosed, enhancing product diversity and production flexibility. Alternatively, batch pre-mixing a finished syrup in a mixing tank, followed by continuous dosing into the beer flow, is possible, especially advantageous for larger production quantities.

Continuous dosing significantly increases flexibility for variety changes and batch size adjustments, allowing production to be halted at any time to respond to new requirements or recipes. Post-production, the entire dosing system is rinsed with water and cleaned as part of the regular CIP system cleaning, minimizing product losses and swiftly preparing the system for the next production. This represents a clear economic advantage, particularly in the food and beverage industry. 

Why should you choose the ADS?

  • Continuous dosing: Thanks to continuous dosing.
  • Perfectly regulated: The integral dosing algorithm (IDA) ensures a perfectly mixed product and autonomously compensates for fluctuations in the shortest time.
  • Customized to your needs: Every dosing task is individual.
  • Easy integration: The system is pre-assembled, pre-wired, and tested.
  • Fully automatic operation: Intuitive control with the corosys compass allows for effortless operation, or the system can be fully integrated into your process control system.
  • Everywhere in view: With our Smart Machine operational data acquisition, you have access to operational data and reports from anywhere.
