Industrial steam for bottling plants in the brewing industry

GICONMES has hundreds of equipment performing these tasks in the facilities of the main European bottlers, complying with respective regulations.




Steam supply for beer production

Brewing Sector LINE. Giconmes industrial steam generators

Similar to the canning industry, beverage bottling plants are also prone to microorganisms, germs, pathogens, or simply microbes. This requires their managers to implement a comprehensive disinfection plan to be applied before the industrial bottling process. Water, milk, fruit juices, soft drinks, beer, etc., all require a thorough cleaning and disinfection plan prior to bottling.

Beer production requires a significant amount of heat throughout the entire process. High-quality steam is supplied for heating, pasteurization, and cleaning processes.

In the first two processes, steam can be supplied to a heat exchanger to ensure it never comes into contact with the final product, or directly with the aid of a particle filter to ensure the required steam purity.

In cleaning activities, steam is necessary to achieve total sanitization of bottles, cans, bottling lines, and in situ cleaning systems.

Most breweries require steam pressure to range between 7 bar and 10 bar. However, at GICONMES, we adapt to the specific needs of each project and are capable of controlling the steam temperature in each case, thanks to our range of NGV generators.

We understand that many questions may arise. Here are some of the most common ones:

There are no emissions other than those generated in the electricity production process. Therefore, they can be neutral depending on the electric power mix. Electric steam boilers are the present and the future.

Absolutely. In fact, it is recommended to achieve maximum efficiency. There is no problem with remote control as long as the current regulations are respected.

A steam generator is a pressure vessel that, along with the network of pipes, is subject to regulatory control and complementary technical instructions, as stated in the Regulation published in Royal Decree 809/2021, dated September 21st. The maintenance is divided into a part that is simple for the owner to fulfill:

  1. Familiarize yourself with and apply the manufacturer’s instructions regarding the use, safety measures, and maintenance.
  2. Do not put the installation into service or prevent the operation of pressure equipment if the requirements of the Regulation are not met.
  3. Keep at least the following documentation of the pressure equipment while they are installed: Declaration of conformity, manufacturer’s instructions if applicable, and, if applicable, installation certificate, along with other supporting documentation (such as Installation Project, a record of the last periodic inspection, certifications of equipment repairs or modifications, as well as any other documentation required by the corresponding complementary technical instruction (ITC) of this regulation). For specific details, please refer to Annex IV of the regulation. This documentation should be made available to the competent authority of the autonomous community and to companies performing maintenance, repair, or periodic inspections.
  4. Use the pressure equipment within its intended operating limits as specified by the manufacturer and take it out of service if it no longer meets the necessary safety requirements.
  5. Perform maintenance on the installations, pressure equipment, safety accessories, and control devices in accordance with the operating conditions and manufacturer’s instructions, ensuring they are inspected at least once a year.
  6. Arrange for the performance of the periodic inspections corresponding to them in accordance with the provisions of Article 6 of the regulation.
  7. Maintain an up-to-date record of the pressure equipment belonging to categories I to IV, as defined in RD 709/2015, of July 24, or equipment assimilated to these categories according to Article 3.2 of the regulation, as well as their installations.

It is known that by applying heat to water, it transforms into steam at the boiling point under atmospheric pressure. From there, depending on the required degree of steam saturation for its proper application, we need to increase the pressure to obtain higher temperature. To change the temperature and saturation level of steam, the pressure must be modified.

It is a unit of pressure equivalent to 1 kg/cm², 0.98 atmospheres, or 14.50 PSI.
