The first step is ensuring that your air compressor is the right size for your brewery. This is a critical step, not only for the actual brewing process, but for your wallet as well. To determine which air compressor would work best in your brewery, ask yourself:
1. What do you need it for? Bottling? Keg filling or cleaning? Packaging?
2. What is the flow that your system needs?
3. How much space do you have?
4. What is your power source?
There are two types of air compressors that may be appropriate based on the answers to the questions above: reciprocating and rotary screw.
Reciprocating compressors, also known as electric single-stage or two-stage compressors, are available in many sizes, voltages, and horsepower options. These compressors sit on horizontal or vertical tanks ranging from 30 to 120 gallons, run 200 or 230V, with 5, 7.5, 10, 20 or 25HP.
Our rotary screw compressors, range from 5-500 HP, and have components throughout the compressor that involve high-tech technology and a built-in Total Air System (TAS) that provide clean, dry air in the single package. This alone will save you up to 80% of the traditional installation cost of individual air treatment equipment components.
