Ethanol tank with TKW loading

Buffer Tanks and Ethanol tank with TKW loadingEthanol produced during dealcoholization can either be discarded or captured for resale. The latter option is more effective and environmentally friendly. For this, a special storage tank and a TKW loading station are required. However, there are several considerations to keep in mind. Due to the risk of explosions, all components must be explosion-proof in accordance with the ATEX directive.

How does the loading process work?At the loading station, the loading hose and the gas pendulum hose are connected to the TKW, and the TKW‘s overfill protection is engaged. Additionally, the TKW is grounded using an earthing clamp, which is ensured by a monitoring device. After approval from a brewery employee, the TKW driver can pre-select the loading quantity and initiate the loading process from an explosion-proof control panel. 
Depending on the retention device, a dead man‘s switch must be activated every few minutes to prevent ethanol from leaking into the environment. At the end of the loading process, the loading valve is gradually closed to achieve the pre-selected quantity accurately. The hoses, overfill protection, and grounding clamp can now be disconnected.

as a blending system.
