The Additive Dosing System (ADS) continuously and accurately doses malt extract, hops products, flavors, enzymes and other additives to beer, beer wort and other beverages. The additives can be dosed from containers, canisters or a dosing vessel with an optional heating jacket. Both liquid and powdery substances, which have been dissolved beforehand, can be processed. In addition, the container or dosing vessel can be blanketed with a protective gas such as CO2 or nitrogen in order to prevent the oxygen content from increasing in the final product.
Additive dosing systems are commonly used in the brewing and beverage industry, but also in the chemical-pharmaceutical industry. Making use of this technology provides the greatest possible production flexibility.
The systems are characterized by highly accurate metering systems for volume and mass flow and precise control algorithms. Optionally the dosing can be controlled by in-line color sensors or other suitable in-line analyzers.
