Sparkon Engineers is the leading manufacturer, exporter and supplier of Unitank / fermentation tank which have various industrial applications.
A Unitank is a specialized vessel used in the brewing industry for the fermentation and maturation of beer. It combines the functions of both a fermenter and a storage tank into a single unit, streamlining the brewing process and minimizing the need for transferring beer between different vessels.
- Fermentation and Maturation: The unitank is designed to facilitate the fermentation and maturation stages of beer production. It provides an environment where yeast converts sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide while allowing the beer to develop its desired flavors and characteristics.
- Pressure Control: Unitanks are equipped with pressure control systems that enable brewers to control the level of carbonation in the beer. The vessels can withstand and maintain specific pressure levels, ensuring consistent carbonation throughout the fermentation and maturation process.
- Temperature Control: Unitanks incorporate temperature control systems to regulate and maintain precise temperature conditions during fermentation and maturation. This control helps yeast activity, flavors, and overall beer quality.
- Sanitary Design: Unitanks are designed with sanitary considerations to ensure the cleanliness and hygiene of the beer. They feature smooth surfaces, easy-to-clean fittings, and sanitary valves to prevent contamination and maintain the quality and consistency of the brew.
- Sampling and Monitoring: Unitanks are equipped with sampling ports and monitoring systems, allowing brewers to regularly sample the beer and monitor its progress during fermentation and maturation. This enables brewers to make adjustments and ensure optimal quality control.
- CIP (Clean-in-Place) Capability: Unitanks are designed for efficient cleaning through CIP processes. CIP systems use specialized cleaning solutions and procedures to clean the vessel’s interior without the need for manual disassembly, reducing downtime and ensuring proper sanitation.
Unitanks are primarily used in the brewing industry, specifically in craft breweries, microbreweries, and larger-scale beer production facilities. They are essential for the fermentation and maturation stages of beer production, allowing brewers to streamline the process and maintain consistent quality.
