Fermentation Tanks

SSV Limited fermentation tanks help brewers produce great beer. Our fermentation vessels are easy to clean using our as standard rotary spray balls which ensure an optimal flow pattern for the best cleaning results. Our adjustable racking arm provides maximum beer recovery and minimal processing time. All of our fermentation tanks are fitting with high efficiency, channel type, laser welded, glycol cooling jackets. These allow for up to 6x more flow than traditional dimple type jackets. Utilising our laser welding machine ensures all cooling jackets are rated to a minimum of 4.0b and jacket welds are 100% x-ray’d ensuring we maintain our failure rate of 0% *accurate at the time of writing.

Increasing your fermentation capacity can can be the most efficient and cost effective means of increasing your brewing capacity! We have tanks ranging in sizes from 10HL – 30000HL to suit all processing requirements. Our tanks are fully compliant with all UK legislation including CE and PED certifications.

Features & Benefits

Option of top or side manway c/w hand-turn knobs provides fast and easy access to vessel

Static cleaning ball provides reliable cleaning performance and optimised flow pattern to minimise cleaning time and water usage. Optional rotating cleaning nozzles are also available. External clamped connection permits easy maintenance and replacement of the cleaning nozzle without entering the vessel.

Dual purpose arm for venting vessel through sterile air lock. Provides easy connection point at comfortable working height for brewer. Includes pressure gauge and gas valve c/w quick -connect gas connection.

(Pressure Release Valve) Protects against over pressurization or vacuum collapses of tank. Self sealing after operation for reduced risk of beer contamination. Easy disassembly for cleaning.

Locks into the rung on a standard ladder providing safe access to the top of the vessel.

#4 Brushed polished sheets provide a showpiece finish suitable for high pressure washdown.

Pour-in polyurethane foam insulation has a high insulation value and expands to fill every corner of the insulation space, achieving a superior performance compared to fiber batts. Insulation foam is specially formulated for use with stainless vessels.

High efficiency gylcol cooling jackets are specially designed to create turbulence and improve heat transfer. Dual side jackets and single cone jacket located to minimize thermal stratification and maximize cooling performance for single or double batch sizes (90BBL designed for triple batches) Cone jacket keeps flocculated yeast cold, minimizing autolysis and maintaining yeast health.

Sanitary sample valve provides convenient location to draw-off wort sample.

Adjustable racking arm allows adjustment of racking level for maximum beer recovery.

9” thermowell provides accurate fermentation temperature for precision process control. The thermowell isolates the temperature sensor from the process allowing the beer to troubleshoot and replace the sensor without draining the vessel .

Sanitary drain valve is kept close to the bottom of the fermenter to prevent yeast and wort being held in piping at room temperature, resulting in spoilage and off-flavours. Drain sized for low turbulence product transfers and COP without cavitation.

Tilting pads ensure full floor contact without gaps and simplify vessel leveling for vessels under 100BBL .

60 degree cone bottom is optimized for excellent yeast settling characteristics and harvesting of yeast from the bottom drain without channeling.

Minimum 25% headspace allows for vigorous ale fermentations without foam losses. Height to diameter ratios optimised for fast fermentations and high attenuation.
