Brewery Reduces Off-Line Filler Cleaning Time and Achieves 60% Water Reduction with ChemTreat Filler Cleaner Technology

Brewery Reduces Off-Line Filler Cleaning Time and Achieves 60% Water Reduction with ChemTreat Filler Cleaner Technology

The Problem

A brewing facility in northern Mexico used to stop production every day for 30 minutes to perform off-line cleaning. The cleaning procedure consists of adding foam, waiting five minutes, rinsing the foam with water, and running a mechanical cleaner to remove biological and fungal growth caused by unpasteurized beer spillage. Once per week, the brewery had to stop production for 1–4 hours for a more thorough cleaning.

The Solution

ChemTreat recommended our innovative filler cleaner solution, which can be fed during production to help prevent microbiological and fungal growth, reducing the need for frequent off-line cleanings.

The Results

After applying the ChemTreat technology, the plant no longer needs to stop production every day. Off-line cleanings have been reduced to 1–2 hours per weekend, saving approximately 3 hours per week while preserving product quality by avoiding biological contamination.

Increased throughput at the facility means other plants no longer need to pick up the slack.
