Webinar offers brewing industry a fresh perspective on sterile filtration
The brewing industry will be shown how innovative technology can help to protect beer quality and flavour – while reducing operational costs – in a forthcoming webinar by Parker Bioscience.
Parker Bioscience provides filtration solutions for the global food and beverage industry. It has specialist expertise in the brewing, bottled water, wine and dairy industries, and supports companies in improving process control, efficiency and security throughout their production and packaging processes. Parker Bioscience (formerly Parker domnick hunter), is a division of Parker Hannifin – the world’s leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems.
The free webinar, entitled Extending Beer Shelf-Life While Reducing Processing Costs will take place on May 16 and will be presented by Daniel Vecsey, market development manager – food & beverage processing at Parker Bioscience.
The webinar will examine how sterile filtration can be used as an effective alternative to flash pasteurisation and will explore how sterile filtration can remove microbiological hazards, while still protecting the flavour, quality, shelf life and appearance of finished beer.
It will also help brewers to understand the negative effects that traditional pasteurisation processes can have on beer quality and demonstrate how sterile filtration can help breweries to save up to 44 per cent in operating costs compared to flash pasteurisation. These cost savings can be realised across beer losses, water consumption, energy consumption and consumable spend.
Parker Bioscience has developed cutting-edge technology for use in sterile filtration and recently announced the formation of a new partnership with Belgium-based company Agidens Process Automation. This has enabled the global brewing industry to access systems which integrate Parker Bioscience’s microfiltration solutions with Agidens’ automated processing technology.
Daniel Vecsey, market development manager – food & beverage processing at Parker Bioscience, said: “The brewing industry is undergoing many changes and this is proving to be a catalyst for process innovation. For instance, we have witnessed the continued growth of the craft beer market, where distinct, powerful flavours are paramount and brewers are placing increasing importance on preserving the long term shelf life of their bottled products. In addition we can witness the brewing industry is under increasing pressure to cut costs and reduce water and energy consumption. Sterile filtration can support breweries of all capacities in achieving these requirements.
“Through the webinar, we’re looking forward to helping representatives of the brewing industry – including production managers, quality managers, operations managers and head brewers – explore new technology that could have a major impact on their businesses and final products.”
The Extending Beer Shelf-Life While Reducing Processing webinar will take place on May 16 at 3pm (London) and 10am (New York). To register, visit: http://bit.ly/2p1CTYx
