MASTER YOUR CRAFT WITH INGERSOLL RAND

CRAFT BREWING

UNDERSTANDING YOUR AIR COMPRESSOR NEEDS

 

You have this brilliant plan to start your own craft brewery but now you need to understand the correct way to setup your compressed air system, which will determine if your brewery will sink or swim.

Selecting Your Compressor

 

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 Vs. Rotary Screw Air Compressors

 

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.

 

Be sure to consult with an Ingersoll Rand representative before purchasing your compressor. We want to make sure that you have the right setup to fulfill the needs for your brewery.

PARTS & ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR SYSTEM

 

An air compressor isn’t the only type of equipment that you will need to completely bring your craft beer from production to the bar. To have an efficient compressed air system, you will need to invest in a variety of accessories that not only improve your system, but ensure that the compressed air being used throughout the operation is clean.
