Raise a Toast for Improved Productivity

In brewing, maintaining consistencies in the product is one of the major challenges since raw ingredients vary from year to year and field to field, no matter how detailed and specific one is in sourcing these ingredients. However, adding electronic monitoring and control system to brewery can give a fair amount of consistency and repeatability for the breweries.

“Achieving consistent beer from inconsistent ingredients is the number one challenge. Our unique approach ensures that quality data collected at material receiving can be used to guide recipe adjustments in processing steps such as mashing, boiling, fermentation or finishing. This makes sure that inconsistent materials do not affect quality or flavour, or lead to excessive beer losses,” observes Katie Beissel, Global Industry Manager – Food and Beverage, GE Intelligent Platforms – which offers a suite of automation, visualisation and production management solutions that offer precise control and execution of critical processes.
