Kreyer Temperature control systems up to 50 tanks

The Kreyer range of temperature control systems are manufactured by internationally renowned Kreyer, a WTG Quantor brand, who have over 40 years of specialist knowledge in wine temperature control at all stages of vinification. Kreyer systems are designed to meet the rigorous requirements of modern winemaking. They are also ideal for the temperature control of beer, cider, juice, spirits and soft drinks (see Application).

These temperature control systems are designed to control the temperature of up to 50 tanks from one central point (the box itself) by controlling the flow of coolant through heat exchange jackets, however these boxes can also be completely integrated as part of the complete VinInfo computer control system (see below).

  • Fermline Fermflex Box - automatic control; temperatures of all tanks can be viewed at a glance and the settings changed on the spot; operation mode of the controller (cooling or heating) indicated via LED display; 2 relays for pump control (one for heating & one for cooling); option to control and export/analyse data via PC using Ferm-Software; 3 models available
  • Fermbox - electronic control; temperatures of all tanks can be viewed at a glance and the settings changed on the spot; 2 relays for pump control (one for heating & one for cooling); if the max quantity of tanks is not reached, this system allows for the adding of new control cards for new tanks added to the system at a later date - the cards simply click onto place in the cabinet; option to control and export/analyse data via PC using Ferm-Software; 3 models available

Whether you require a temperature control system with or without tanks, or a complete computerised cooling/temperature control system with ringmains and Speidel tanks* (insulated or standard) with heating/cooling jackets, we can help.Our engineers install and commission complete cooling/temperature regulation systems, this includes the construction of a bespoke ringmain (pipework) and bracketry.

Application

Kreyer temperature control equipment is widely are used for wine, beer and soft drink applications.

For wine

Temperature control can be a real asset to wineries in terms of optimising the consistency, the qualities, and the aromas characteristic of English and Welsh wines. Temperature can be controlled at product tank level; centrally via terminal or remotely; or via air conditioning for storage areas. These key temperature control functions can be met with Kreyer temperature control equipment:

  • Cold settling of must and juices
  • Fermentation control, including control by CO2 monitoring
  • Cold stabilisation of wines
  • Malolactic fermentation control (with heating option standard on most units)
  • Long term control of product storage temperature
  • Product chilling prior to carbonation

For beer

Brewers are looking to temperature control as a way of ensuring quality and consistency of their product. Temperature can be controlled at the room level, tank level, or product can be directly cooled or heated. This can ensure that wort is cooled at the rate you want, fermentation occurs at the rate that you want, and that your beer is stored in the conditions you want. Controlling temperature can also help your product retain some of the delicate flavours which can be easily lost. Chilling is also essential where beer is to be carbonated. These key temperature control functions can be met:

  • Rapid cooling of wort
  • Fermentation control, including control by CO2 monitoring
  • Long term control of product storage temperature
  • Product chilling prior to (and for effective) carbonation

For cider

Cider makers can use temperature control to optimise the consistency and quality of their product and chill it prior to carbonation. Temperature can be controlled at product tank level; centrally via terminal or remotely; or via air conditioning for storage areas. These functions can be met with Kreyer temperature control equipment:

  • Fermentation control
  • Long term control of product storage temperature
  • these units can be used to chill the product prior to (and for effective) carbonation. *Kreyer temperature control equipment is applicable to other drink applications, including spirits & mead; please contact us on 01404 892100 to discuss your requirements.

  • They have developed innovative systems for temperature regulation, CO2 monitoring, micro/macro oxygenation, and room temperature control
  • They manufacture in-house

Company Development

The Kreyer brand was founded in 1970 in Villefranche sur Saône, France - the centre of the Beaujolais wine production area. In 1998 the company changed ownership and was incorporated by Wine Technology GmbH (WTG), an Austrian, American & German partnership, and since then headquarters have been located in the triangle of Germany, France & Luxembourg, in the heart of the Mosel winegrowing region. Further company expansion led to the development of larger production facilities. The company has since expanded and changed its name to WTG-Quantor GmbH. WTG-Quantor is now represented in all major wine-growing countries worldwide, incorporating over 80 countries, including Chile, South Africa and Australia.

Functions

Quantor's equipment range covers the following functions:

  • Cold settling of must and juices
  • Fermentation control, including control by CO2 monitoring
  • Malolactic fermentation control (with heating option standard on most units)
  • Micro/macro oxygenation
  • Rapid cooling of wort
  • Long term control of product storage temperature
  • Product chilling prior to carbonation
  • Cold stabilisation

The Range

The range includes Chiller Units, Heating & Chiller Units, Temperature Control Systems, & Air Conditioning Units - please see Temperature Control & Chilling.
