Automated Liquid Bromine Feed Systems: The Next Generation

By Tom Soukup ChemTreat, Inc., Richmond, Virginia.

Abstract
The initial concept and application for pasteurizer halogen feed was presented at the 1997 MBAA convention in Baltimore. Since that time the novel prototype has evolved into a system suitable for the transition into the new millennium. Programmable logic controllers, modems, faxes, alarm capabili- ties, and telecommunications have resulted in a package, which has substantially more capabilities than the initial design. These features have provided valuable information to the brewery not even expect- ed with the original concept. The data available has become a useful tool for water conservation, optimizing on-site waste treatment sys- tems, and detecting variations of contamination in the pasteurizers. This new Liquid feed system has been adopted in breweries through- out the U.S., and installations in Canada are ongoing. This poster will focus on the design, installation, and experiences with start-up at the Anheuser-Bush plant in St. Louis. An on-line demonstration of the data acquisition capabilities will be displayed. This product was an example of an intensive, coordinated effort by ChemTreat, Inc., and Anheuser-Busch personnel.

Sintesis
El concepto initial. y la aplicacion para la comida halogenada pas- teurizada se presento en la convencidn del MBAA de 1997 en Baltimore. Desde ese tiempo el prototipo original ha evolucionado en un sistema apropiado para la transition al nuevo milenio. Los controladores logicos programables, modems, faxes, capaci- dades de alarmas y la telecomunicacion han resultado en un paquete, el cual Gene mucho mas capacidades gue el disefio original. Estas caracteristicas han previsto information invaluable a la cerveceria no esperada por el concept0 original. La information disponibIe se ha convertido en una herramienta util para la conservation del agua, para el uso optima de los sistemas de desecho y para la detection de contamination en los pasteurizadores. El nuevo sistema de comida liquida ha sido adoptado en cervecerr'a por todo Estados Unidos y las instalaciones en Canada estan empezando. Este cartel se enfoca en el disefio, instalacion y las experiencia con el comienzo en la plantas de Anheuser-Bush en St. Louis. Se exhibira una demostracion de las capacidades de adquisicion en linea. Este product0 es un ejemplo de un esfuerzo intenso y coordi- nado por el personal de ChemTreat, Inc., y Anheuser-Busch.
