To predict the beer filterability STABIFIX invested into the development of the system Filtercheck, which performs the “Raible Filtertest”. Due to its high correlation with the key filtration parameter, clarity and pressure increase, the Raible Filtertest is now accepted as a most reliable prediction system world wide. The Filtercheck is used by many brewers and brewing institutes around the world. The test is quick and easy and presents a very cost-effective alternative to other methods.
The Filtercheck is a great production management tool, because it does not help to predict filter performance and evaluate new kieselguhr mixtures. Since changes in most brewing process steps will have an effect on clarity and filterability the Filtercheck is a simplistic sensor to detect variations in raw material quality, brewhouse work, yeast management and more. So Filtercheck does not only help to receive a brighter beer more efficiently. It also sheds light on the overall performance of the whole brewing process. All this just by filtering 200ml of beer through the Filtercheck! How many systems can deliver so much information at such price?
Stabivac for dust-free handling of silica gels. The Stabivac is a water jet device for vacuum extraction of dust from filteraids in kieselguhr dosing units, developed by STABIFIX Brauerei-Technik. Stabivac is connected to the dosing vessel. According to the principle of the water jet pump the unit causes suction through the filling aperture into the interior so that the dust of the filteraids cannot escape from the vessel. The effective suction of this device is specially adjusted to kieselguhr dosing units used in breweries and can be regulated by means of propellant water pressure. Stabivac is made of stainless steel, has no moving parts and therefore is not subject to wear. The unit can be safely sterilized together with the dosing vessel. For occasional manual cleaning, the Stabivac can easily be dismantled.
