Complete compressed air systems for the craft brew industry

Your compressed air system is as important to your brewery's success as your recipe and the quality of your ingredients. Air compressors are key components to several aspects of craft brew operations:
- aeration: introducing oxygen into the yeast cultures throughout the fermentation process
- clarifying: pressure-driven centrifuges remove heavier solids for a cleaner, clearer final product
- canning and bottling: compressed air moves beer from the conditioning tank to the bottle
- cleaning and maintenance: compressed air powers pressure washers which help maintain a clean and safe operation
Some important factors to consider when selecting air compressors for your brewery:
- Energy efficiency: Energy costs are a significant portion of an air system's total cost. To select an energy-efficient compressor for your shop, check out the CAGI data sheets for the models you are evaluating for your brewery.
- Reliability: Unplanned downtime can hold up your bottling line or slow down your entire operation.
- Space and noise: Many craft breweries don't have the square footage required for a dedicated compressor room and a noisy compressor can disturb customers in your pub or drive your brew master out of the brewery.
