Buffer tank

Use of buffer tanks in productionIn continuous production chains, buffer tanks are often employed to decouple production steps from one another. This is the case, for example, between inline mixing and the filling process or before and after beer filtration, to protect the filter from fluctuations and pressure surges.

Process in the buffer tank?The process begins by displacing air from the cleaned tank from bottom to top using CO2 to create an oxygen-free atmosphere. After pressurizing the tank to the required level, it is ready for filling. Level measurement allows for the control of processes before or after, ensuring a continuous production flow.

At the end of production, the tank is emptied, and the pressure is released. The CO2 atmosphere is purged from top to bottom using compressed air. The tank is now ready to be cleaned together with the product line. Optionally, the tank can be sterilized using a steam connection.

Why should you choose our buffer tanks?

  • High Safety: The vacuum-tight design and integration into the hot cleaning of the line cleaning achieve a high level of microbiological safety. Optionally, the tank can be steamed.
  • High Product Quality: Intelligent gas flow management enables effective and CO2-efficient removal of oxygen.
  • Easy Integration: The tank and fittings are specially designed for integration into the CIP of the product line, eliminating the need for a separate CIP connection.
  • 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.
